So I saw surface’s post on a Linux Alarm Clock using xmms. In spirit of choice, I will show you my Mplayer Alarm Clock!
First I need to create a playlist. You can add the file you want to play (with fullpath) to a file. I do this by first going to the directory I want to make a playlist from, and execute the following command:
find "`pwd`" -name "*.mp3" -print >> playlist;
Next I make a script which plays that playlist and save it into say /home/aizat/scripts/alarm:.sh
