Alternative OSD through Gnome Notification Daemon

This script shows information about the currently played track as a notification using a notification daemon that implements the freedesktop.org dbus interface (e.g. libnotify or notify-osd). It is intended to replace Amaroks own OSD, so its recommend to deactivate this via the configuration menu.

* Amarok 2.x
* notify-osd (recommend) or libnotify-bin
* imagemagick
(if you use libnotify)

Some example strings for the configuration are available on my blog: http://mantis.blogsport.de/2009/07/08/notifyamarok-configuration/

UPDATE (1.11.09):
ubuntu karmic (9.10):

Due to some changes in notify-osd for karmic some issue evolved concerning amarok notifications:
1. The update seems to have become slower which first of all sometimes causes empty notifications.
2. Newlines in the title are prevented by design now.
3. The destruction of notifications stopped working so there is an additional standard duration without update after the duration time thats set in the NotifyAmarok configuration.
As I unfortunately dont have time for this project at the moment I most likely wont fix this in the near future. Sorry!

KDE 4.3:
KDE 4.3 now support the freedesktop.org specifications, but unfortunately no smooth update. If you are using KDE, i recommend you to use thesalus' amaroknotify (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php/amaroKnotify?content=103197), which provides nearly the same functionality now, but is developed for KDE.


Major development step with stunning new features ;)
* Full Configurable Notification Title, Body and Duration with all song information available and nice unicode symbols
* A nice Help Window that (i hope) explains the configuration accurately
* set Keybinding to trigger a notification when ever you wonder which song is playing atm (though not very straightforward yet) see "Questions and Answers" for Details
* finally just using the same cover images Amarok does without searching for fitting covers
* new code concept/structure that benefits future development of more new features
* now works on Amarok 2.1 Beta as well

 too many Gnome dependencies

 by rubyinthedust on: Sep 8 2009
Score 50%

Good work, although this looks really nice this is not KDE material - there are far too many Gnome deps. Alone script requires banshee gnome-mount gajim and pidgin notifiers, which are all Gnome apps, and those require even more libraries. Installation will take me hours, for a script?

Well, I don't suppose this is for KDE users because it is all about better integration of the KDE application Amarok into GNOME. But it is a script for a KDE application so I suspect it to belong here anyway.

 Icon filenames with spaces

 by Jojo12a on: Nov 17 2009
Score 50%

One small bugfix: Icon filenames that contain spaces (or other characters specially treated by bash) will not work in the current implementation because in line 106,

resize = subprocess.Popen("convert -resize 50x50 "+icon+" "+path+"/temp.png", shell=True, stdout=subprocess.PIPE,)

has to be replaced by

resize = subprocess.Popen(("convert", "-resize", "50x50", icon, path+"/temp.png"), stdout=subprocess.PIPE,)

shell=True is not a that good idea because you should try to avoid shell escapes.

Also, please replace all


calls by

Template(unicode(sys.argv[i], 'utf-8'))

so that Unicode strings are allowed in the template strings.

 problems with shebang

Hi, thanks for this nice script.
In order to make it working I needed to change the shebang line to:
#!/usr/bin/env python2
Kind regards,

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.
