Source Configuration:

Before compiling you must edit the file linux-desktop-server.h and change line 32 to fit to your needs.

line 32 : int PORT=10000; // change to a free TCP port that the server will listen on.

Optional MPlayer Settings:

See line 402 in file linux-desktop-server-threads.h to make adjustments to the mplayer process.

Source Compilation:

An example compilation script is provided in the server-linux-desktop directory, 'compile.sh'.

$sh compile.sh

This will create the linux server binary 'ldmcs'.

To start the linux desktop server just run ./ldmcs
