Description:

This script changes Kopete global nickname with a customized name based on current song information, and optionally allows to use the cover as global photo.

The customized nickname is built with a variables set that contains the information about the current song. For example:

Pattern: "Now I'm listening %t by %a, track number %b in %m (%y)"
Nick: "Now I'm listening Yesterday by The Beatles, track number 13 in Help! (1965)"

The available variables set is:

%a -> Artist name
%t -> Title name
%n -> Now Playing (same as '%a - %t')
%m -> Album name
%g -> Genre
%y -> Year
%b -> Track number
%d -> Song duration
%f -> Last.fm Station name

Note: This script changes only the nickname and (optionally) the photo, but doesn't change the away status or away message, if you want to change those items use "Kopete Now Listening for Amarok" or "kopete msn message notifier", also available in kde-apps.

Dependencies:
Kommander - http://kommander.kdewebdev.org/
ImageMagick - http://www.imagemagick.org/

Firts of all, I really like this script. It just adds some more nice and usefull eye-candy. And some people are seriously jeaulous. :)

But, amaroKopete hangs quite rapidly. Expecially with large pictures of the CD-covers.

very good script :)
but I have a problem : when amarok finish a song and play the next one, my system is lagging :(. It spend 2 or 3 seconds max.
I also think it will be a good idea to choose between away message or alias for the message. Because kopete module doesn't know displaying the cover of the listening Cd.
Thanks a lot.

Same problem here.
I found it out that the lagging time depends on the size of the album cover.
And when the script lags too much, the script will hang and/or consume a lot of resources.

Perhaps amaroKopete should create a smaller image and store it for further use. So the script/kopete doesn't have toe resize the image.

I don't know the code. Never had the time to look deep inside of it.

 Can't get it work

Hi everybody,
first of all thanks for this great script.
My system:

- Kubuntu 6.10 / KDE 3.5.5
- Kopete 0.12.3
- Amarok 1.4.3

I've installed the script correctly but when I make it run nothing changes in Kopete, and I get this message in the output log (right-clicking on the script name):

---------
X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 166
Major opcode: 144
Minor opcode: 3
Resource id: 0x0
Failed to open device
X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 166
Major opcode: 144
Minor opcode: 3
Resource id: 0x0
Failed to open device
-------------

Any clue?
Many thanks in advance!

This script changes the global nickname. Do you have the global identity activated in kopete?

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
