from a bash prompt type:

which xmms2

and make sure xmms2 is in your $PATH. if it is not you could issue:

locate xmms2

to help you find where the executable is. in gtkpod you'll need the full 
path of the executable for the configuration. so if xmms2 is in 
/usr/local/bin you'll need:

/usr/local/bin/xmms2 %s

for your Play Now configuration.

hope that helps.
