To load the interface run 'lyricue' or select 'Lyricue' from the Applications menu.

On first load it will bring up the 'First-run Wizard'. This dialog will step you through the process of setting up Lyricue to run

If you have already set up Lyricue it will skip straight to the main screen

 

Click 'Forward' to advance through the wizard

First-run Wizard - Login

The first thing to configure is the administrators mysql login which will be used to create the nessecary database tables and the 'lyricue' mysql user.

The user chosen must have full access to the database.  This user is normally called 'root' and has no password by default.

Note: this user is different to the 'root' login on the computer

First-run Wizard - Projector Settings

Here you can do some basic setup of how the projector screen will look.

Setting the width and height will help with ensuring the previews look correct.

You can set where the main lyrics will display on the screen (at the top/centre/bottom and left/centre/right of the screen) as well as what the text justification is.

First-run Wizard - Font Settings

Here you can specify the fonts used by the header, lyrics and footer

First-run Wizard - Image Directories

From here you can specify where the images and videos used by lyricue are stored.

Each sub-directory of whatever location you specify will show up as a seperate 'category' in Lyricue

You can set the directories as the same or seperate locations.  This can help you to keep images and videos unsuitable for use as backgrounds seperate.

If you are going to be running the interface and the server on separate machines these paths must be the same and accessible on both machines.  Sharing the directory as an NFS share is the best method of doing this.  It is recommended that the directory be shared from the server machine if you are going to be using videos.

First-run Wizard - Most-used Items

Here you can enter the items that you want to always appear at the top of their respective lists.

You can also select your default bible translation.

First-run Wizard - Confirm

You are all done.

Now you can continue to the main interface of Lyricue
