Xterm Window Title

You'll need xtermset program to be able to change window title. Install xtermset program from repositories. If you're using Ubuntu, then run:
sudo apt-get install xtermset

In your ~/.shell-fm/shell-fm.rc file, np-cmd line should look like this:

np-cmd=xtermset -T %a-%t

This will put artist and title on terminal window after each time track changes. If you have other commands already configured, you can combine this with your pre-existing command:

np-cmd=yourcommand; xtermset -T %a-%t

update: this is obsolete, shell-fm's configuration file is already capable of changing the title of the terminal window. Read manual for "term-format" option
