using ncmpc++ ver 0.5.6 on ubuntu 12.04 <<- Epic AwesomeWM so thats why im using the terminal music playa!

Anyway I edited the mpd.conf in /etc/mpd.conf

under the music library I put /media/Jake External/Torrents

but for w/e reason ncmpc++ still has no songs loaded in it :(

I made the /torrents directory to Executable <- from a google search!

I changed the auto update to true and uncommented it

Then changed the auto dir depth to 5 cause its all organized!

But nothing has helped :(

What now Ask Ubuntu people?!
