Media Player Mouse Gestures

Media Player Mouse Gestures for Amarok, Clementine, Dragon Player, Kaffeine and VLC Media Player.

Where to use:
If you watch your movies/series from a couch or some other distant place and have a wireless mouse, it's very convenient to control your player without touching the keyboard. If you are used to mouse gestures, you will get used to it very quickly.
If you listen to your favourite music and you are not near your computer, you are able to control basic functions of Amarok with mouse gestures.

How to install:
Just go to Systemsettings -> InputActions and import amarok.khotkeys, dragon.khotkeys, kaffeine.khotkeys or vlc.khotkeys
In Settings, you have to make sure, that gestures are enabled and the Mouse Button needs to be set on "3" (right button), that the gestures will work properly.

The gestures for Video Players (Dragon, Kaffeine and VLC) include the following actions:
- Play / Pause
- Stop
- Open...
- Back / FastBack
- Forward / FastForward
- Previous / Next
- Volume Up / Down / Mute
- Toggle Subtitles (only VLC)
- Toggle Aspect Ratio (only VLC)
- Quit

The gestures for Audio Players (Amarok and Clementine) include the following actions:
- Play / Pause
- Stop
- Previous / Next

Any comments, questions or suggestions for other media players are very much welcome. Please feel free to comment my work!


Version 1.0: Initial Version
Version 1.1: Added Dragon Player, Added Open (File), Added Amarok Control actions, Changed Name to Media Mouse Gestures
Version 1.2: Added Clementine

 Works for middle button

Thanks, good idea!
However, if I use the third (right) button VLC just opens the menu, I have to change to the second (middle) button for it to work. Do you know if there is a way to get the third button to work with VLC?

I use the third button as well and I know, that VLC has a menu option with the right button, but if you move the gesture and not just click the right button, it should start the action.

Very nice idea and well implemented :)

Right-click can be handy, but what if you, like me, have a Apple Magic Mouse (I only have the mouse, no real Mac btw)? Magic Mouse is a multi-touch mouse, so can I make you're files work with multi-touch too?

Well :) never had an Apple Mouse in my hands, but as I have seen on the pictures, it has a "scroll button" in it, is it correct? Couldn't you just set it on 2 (middle button) instead of 3 (right button)?
On behalf of the multi-touch gestures, I have a netbook myself with a multi-touch touchpad, but do not know now, how to adapt it to it at the moment, maybe I will find out in the future, but at the moment I cannot even access the "Touchpad settings", hell knows why :)

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.
