SYNOPSIS

xmms-curses [<-|+>ntlaVh] [ options ]

DESCRIPTION

xmms-curses is a simple application for controlling XMMS from the command line. It is designed to make common, simple tasks fast and easy to do. It is operated using arrow keys and standard XMMS keys, to make it easy and intuitive to learn.

OPTIONS

To negate a short option, use +’ instead of -’ (e.g. +a).
Long-options are negated with no-, (e.g. --no-read-all).
-n, --numbers
  Show numbers in playlist (default on)
-t, --title
  Read the title from ID3/ogg-tags (SLOW) (default on)
-l, --length
  Show length of track in playlist (SLOW) (default on)
-a, --read-all
  Read all titles and lengths on startup (EXTREMELY SLOW) (default off)
-V, --version
  Display version information
-h, --help
  Print help message
Tip: Things going slow? Try xmms-curses -ntl

FILES

/etc/xmms-curses.conf
  Global configuration file.
$HOME/.xmms-curses
  Local configuration file, specific for each user. Can be used to override the global options.
The syntax of the configuration files are long options without the ’--’, one on each line.
Example:
  numbers
title
length no-read-all

BUGS

The xmms remote controlling library provides no good way of detecting changes in the playlist, and therefore xmms-curses might need to be told to reload the playlist if songs are moved. Do so by pressing L. If the length of the playlist changes, xmms-curses will assume the playlist has changed and reload the entire playlist to make sure it is correct.

Probably lots more.
