So here a quick script to delete a currently playing song in mpd music player daemon of which I am a big fan!
#!/bin/bash kdialog --title "Removing the song" --yesno "Do you really want to delete the song \n$(mpc | head -n 1)?" #If Yes, then 0 is returned, else 1 reply=$(echo $?) if [[ reply -eq 0 ]];then song_to_remove=$(mpc | head -n 1) playlist_pos=$(mpc -f %position% | head -n 1) #Delete the song rm "$(mpc -f %file% | head -n 1 | sed 's/^/\/media\/Data\/mpdLibrary\//')" #Remove the song from playlist mpc del $playlist_pos #Write to log file echo "[`date`] -> --$song_to_remove-- is now deleted..." >> ~/.mpdremove.log fi
Here, I have my music directory as /media/Data/mpdLibrary, change it according to your needs.. Save the above script in your home directory with name, lets say removesong.sh and then make it executable by
$chmod +x removesong.sh
You can assign the script to Shortcut keys according to your desktop environment. (In KDE 4.6, its in
System Settings->Shortcuts & Gestures).
