    It looks amazing I will definitely give it a try. I've already installed kunst, but I've found it crashes a lot.

  • CLI Music Player that supports viewing album covers
    You could check this out. From what I can find it's either this or wrapper scripts around other players

    Thank you for the suggestion but I moved into mpd+ncmpcpp as I wanted to leave spotify. Regarding ncmpcpp-ueberzug thanks a lot for the recommendation, I could configure it and looks amazing. The only thing I would like to achieve is to remove the master/slave vertical separator line, but I cannot find any config option in the ncmpcpp docs.
