Description:

This script will control Amarok from a command line.

New in V2.0:

You can now search for a song and play it!

I wrote this script because my Desktop PC is hooked up to my Stereo and I work from my laptop. So I SSH onto my Desktop PC and control Amarok via DCOP. I used to type each command by hand but I got tired quick, so I wrote this Script. I know it's simple but it works.

Only basic functions are available at the moment. I don't think I'll add any new features unless I personally need them. If you want anything added you can do it yourself or ask me to do it. I will most likely only add a feature if I think I will use it. Selfish... maybe but at least I am sharing this script with you.




Changelog:

Version 2.0:

You now have the ability to search your collection for a song, by Title, Album, Artist, or all 3.

Version 1.1:

The current track is now refreshed when the track is over or the track changes, and not every 10 seconds like in V1.0

Thank you for sharing. I was dreaming of something like that but never find the courage (and maybe the skill) to do it.

You are welcome, It really didn't take that long to write. It was all done within an hour. But I know which dcop functions to call.

I'm actually put an update soon, it now only refreshes the track name when the song is over instead of every 10 seconds.

I think I know what happened here. When I first committed the script I was using my work laptop (Windows) and I copied it from Putty to Note pad... and that's where the newlines where converted to DOS new lines...

Sorry about that... I should have thought of that.

 SSH

I really like this script. It works flawlessly when I use it in a console window. However, if I SSH in and try to use it, I get repeated "ERROR: Couldn't attach to DCOP server!" messages.

Additionally, I get these messages:

"/home/rob/bin/console_amarok.sh: line 32: [: ==: unary operator expected"
after 7) Mute

"/home/rob/bin/console_amarok.sh: line 240: read: CHOICE: invalid timeout specification"
after q) Quit

Any ideas?

The problem is with the way dcop handles user sessions. In order to allow the use of the script with a remote ssh session, you can edit the script and define the following variable at the top :

DCOP_COMMAND=" dcop --user `whoami` --all-sessions "


Then replace any occurrence within the script of dcop with $DCOP_COMMAND

By the way, this is a great script. Very useful :-)

Thanks Saul,

Since I moved, I don't have a need for this script now, so I haven't been using it.

I'm glad to see that other people are using it.

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
