Works great!

It's a bit slower to charge the thumbnails, it needs a kind of Cache for the initial view.
Or maybe, it can starts completely black and then rotate the covers to complete the screen.

The roatation effect is a bit laggy, but nice.

The font is just too big for large titles.

The principal cover of the current track could be inside a square, or a border line.

In kde-look there's an excellent PNG wich is a CD-Box, it can work.

Also, it would be great a way to use it as a screensaver, and a way to configure the font.

Excellent and keep going!

Thanks for the constructive critism. I'll implement the features requested :)

It should be easy to extend to Amarok2, if it doesnt work. I just need to know which folder all the artwork is stored. Will look into it.

 utf8 symbols

There're problems with songs' names which have non utf8 symbols, like "ción" "shôjo" "cheriè", the char is replaced by a strange "A".

 I made a small modification

Your code only checks covers downloaded by amarok. I modified the source so it also uses the covers stored inside the audio files. If you like you can merge this with your version of the code.
Seems like I can't attch files here, so I'll just paste the modifications below. The only changes are in AlbumArtworkItem::_updateArtwork()

-----------------------------------

void AlbumArtworkItem::_updateArtwork() {
// Get a list of cached amarok albums
QStringList coverList;

// get covers from "albumcovers/large"
QDir dirLarge(QDir::homePath() + "/.kde/share/apps/amarok/albumcovers/large/");
foreach(QString fileName, dirLarge.entryList(QDir::Files)) {
coverList << "large/"+ fileName;
}

// get covers from "albumcovers/tagcover"
QDir dirTagcover(QDir::homePath() + "/.kde/share/apps/amarok/albumcovers/tagcover/");
foreach(QString fileName, dirTagcover.entryList(QDir::Files)) {
coverList << "tagcover/"+ fileName;
}

// Try five times to find non-conflicting images. This reduces the chances
// of displaying an image twice at the same time greatly.
for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
m_artworkFileTmp = coverList[std::rand() % coverList.size()];
if (AlbumArtworkItem::m_usedArtworks[m_artworkFileTmp] == 0)
break;
}
AlbumArtworkItem::m_usedArtworks[m_artworkFileTmp]++;

// Load selected cover into the temporary pixmap m_artworktmp
qDebug() << "Loading " << m_artworkFileTmp
<< AlbumArtworkItem::m_usedArtworks[m_artworkFileTmp];
QImage image(QDir::homePath() +"/.kde/share/apps/amarok/albumcovers/"+ m_artworkFileTmp);
image = image.scaled(QSize(m_size,m_size),
Qt::KeepAspectRatioByExpanding,
Qt::SmoothTransformation);

// Load pixmap in GUI thread
QMetaObject::invokeMethod(this, "updatePixmap", Qt::QueuedConnection,
Q_ARG(QImage, image));
}

Hi, you need to use qt4 dev tools. Not sure what the package is called in ubuntu.

Thanks. That got it to compile. Now I have the problem of that it displays the current playing song and album art fine but the album art in the background is the same one over and over.

Also the readme says to add amarokquilt.desktop to the kde screensaver location. I don't have an amarokquilt.desktop file. Do I just rename the amarokquilt executable to a .desktop extension? or am I missing something?

thanks.

I'll check out the cover issue. Oops, it seems i forgot to include the desktop file. Here is a link to it: http://freehg.org/u/casted/amarokquilt/raw-file/21cdf5c2436a/src/AmarokQuilt.desktop

Thanks for the link.

I got the album covers to work properly. It seems amarokquilt was referencing ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/albumcovers/large which only had the one picture that kept showing up. In the albumcovers directory was the folder "cache" (~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/albumcovers/cache" which had just some of my album art. So I made a link to "cache" and renamed it "large" and voila! I got more than one album art.

now my problem is finding the rest of my album art. I also can't get amarokquilt.desktop to show up as a screensaver in gnome-screensaver so I can only use it in fullscreen mode, not a screensaver.

thanks for the help. great program.

p.s.
is there a way to change the number of columns/rows that appear?

Cool :) I think i need to get the images from more than one folder.

The only way currently to change the number of rows and columns is to edit

int item_size = std::min(width / 12, height / 8);

in amarokquilt.cpp

that roughly translates to 12 columns and 8 rows

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
