AndyPi LCD Help!

Hi! i’m trying to use the @AndyPi code with a 8x2 LCD and driver HD44780
when i launch sudo mpdlcd --no-syslog -logfile=- --loglevel=debug i get non error and command line print out the information from mpd.
the problem is that display doesn’t work.
If a launch sudo service lcdproc status i get
● lcdproc.service
Loaded: not-found (Reason: No such file or directory)
Active: inactive (dead)
LCD wiring and LCDd.conf is OK because i’ve tried with adafruit char library and display works.
