AmarokFS KDM-Session
Lets you start your "Amarok" from KDM with "AmarokFS" in fullscreenmode, then you have a dedicated session only for "Amarok".

It needs:
- Amarok

Changelog:

0.0.2
Now this script loads also KWin so you can access amarok by pressing your Amarok-access-key to change the playlist.

I had to change many things that this script work unter Suse. So Maybe you make different versions for different distributions.

And the problem is: How do I change the playlist if the session is loaded?

What things exactly did you have to change? So I could make a SuSE version. I made it on Debian GNU/Linux.

Do you think I should ask the user for the distribution, or how can I figure out, where KDM has its sessions?

The play-list is really a problem. And I don't know what the AmarokFS developer(s) plan to do in the future. But In the next version the session will load a window-manager, so you can switch to Amarok, witch runs in the background, by pressing your Amarok-accesskey: [mod4]+[P] (default) ([mod4] is also known as [Windows]/[Apple]).

Maybe with a simple "whereis (kdm)" will help?

Yes,
if you load a windowmanager. You can change with it's functions to the AmaroK mainwindow.
You should load it in the "/usr/local/share/amarokFS/script/amarokFS-start.sh"-File

Mine looks like this:
[code]
#!/bin/sh
# dieser Skript startet Amarok mit Vollbilderweiterung
# this Script starts Amarok with Fullscreen Extension

/usr/bin/kwin &
/usr/bin/amarok &
/usr/local/bin/amarokFS
[/code]

you mean [alt]+[tab]? The problem is that amarok starts hidden in the systemtray, so there is no "amarok-window".
A dcop call to show amarok is not clever because the only fonction is a toggle. This would work if amarok is hidden, but this state depends on the last usage and such a toggle could hide the window if amarok is already visible. i hope you understand what I mean! ;)

Yes, I think I understand, what you mean.
We need a way to find out whether the window is hidden or it is not. Maybe there is a way to list all open windows with dcop-call to kwin.

 some remarks

First: Thanks for this great simple script. But I have three problems:

1) The keyboard layout is not the one I have in KDE (which gives some problems with german umlauts)

2) I use lineakd for my multimedia keys at the keyboard. It supports Amarok control via some macros ("AMAROK_BACK" for example). Just starting lineakd doesn't work, I guess there has to be another KDE component to be started.

3) Although you might get the impression that your pc is very safe with this amarokfs-"partymode"-session, it is easy to break out:
use the Amarok Wikipedia function > click on any popup link and you have a konquerer opened (F4 for konsole ;-)

I know there are other ways to avoid and solve these problems but I just want to have them mentioned here.
Maybe the README should contain a small HOWTO create a new user and give him access only to the amarok conf and music dir.

To solve 1) and 2) I think you should figure out, how KDE does it.
btw: I think I have chosen a German layout in the xorg.conf:
"Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Driver "kbd"
Option "CoreKeyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "de"
EndSection"

3) there are some ideas for pubmode in AmaroK-Wiki http://amarok.kde.org/wiki/Pub_Mode_ideas. But you are right AmarokFS-session needs a better README and it should be more comfortable.
The idea with the new user for AmarokFS is good.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
