Installation
Get, compile and install those packages from Slackbuilds (http://slackbuilds.org/),
cmus    # compile at last
faad2
ffmpeg
libmp4v2
libmpcdec
 
 
Configuration
Edit the configuration system-wide. Change the key bindings (I don't want the arrow keys to seek, I prefer the '<' and '>'),
cd /usr/share/cmus/
vi rc
change,
bind common left seek -5 ==> bind common < seek -5
bind common right seek +5 ==> bind common > seek +5
add,
bind common right win-toggle
Note. to the same within CMus,
:unbind common left
:unbind common right
:bind -f common < seek -5
:bind -f common > seek +5
:bind -f common right win-toggle
Note. those changes only take effect at cmus's first start, as it copies its own rc file to '~/.cmus/autosave'.
