Amarok Folder Icons

Submitted:  Jul 23 2007
Updated:  Jul 24 2007


Amarok has a builtin function for setting the icon for folders (the one that displays in Konqueror etc) to be the cover image for the album it contains. However, it only works if you let it reorganise your music.

This script will scan the current directory and sub directories for music, and set all the folder icons where it can determine that the folder contains tracks from just one album.

This works best if you store your albums in a flat structure e.g.

/path/to/your/music/artist name - album name/

## Installation ##

Copy the script to your main music directory, and make it executable:

At a terminal:

$ chmod +x 'make_amarok_folder_icons.py'

## Usage ##

At a terminal:

$ cd /to/your/music/folder
$ ./make_amarok_folder_icons.py

## Requirements ##

- Python 2.5 (patches for python 2.4 welcomed!)
- pydcop (Debian package python-dcop)


0.2 - Added support for MySQL and Postgresql databases (using Amarok's dcop interface to query them)

0.1.1 - Fixed #! line to point to python 2.5, which is currently required.

0.1 Initial release

thank you for this great script.
just one thing that would be cool is, if it could copy the cover to the folder and link it as folder icon.

You mean it should make a copy of image in the folder? That seems messier to me. You can locate the cover image by looking at the .directory file.

Also, I may be getting myself into trouble with Amazon copyright. Currently Amarok handles the Amazon copyright issues itself, and it seems safer to leave it that way.

i don't think copying the covers would mess it up, but the amazon thing is an argument.

You are right - I only discovered CopyCover (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=22517) after I wrote this. In fact, I probably wouldn't have written this script if the description of CopyCover on http://amarok.kde.org/wiki/Scripts included the fact that it had a mode that worked for tracks that are not currently playing.

 Not an Amarok Script

This is not an Amarok Script, it's just a script that can be used with Amarok.

Please change the category, otherwise users will get errors when they try to download it with the script manager.

Thanks, I didn't realise that Amarok's Get Hot New Stuff linked into kde-apps. I've fixed it now.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
