I wanted to add a custom keyboard shortcut to control mplayer. mplayer config file is set up properly.
<keybind key="XF86AudioPlay"> <action name="Execute"> <command>echo "pause" > /home/username/.mplayer/pipe</command> </action> </keybind>
Pressing the corresponding key has no effect.
Executing the command itself (
echo "pause" > /home/username/.mplayer/pipe in terminal) works as expected.
Is there any way to check if the file is parsed and loaded correctly?
Please help. Thanks.
