Use this version of AmarokPidgin http://bitbucket.org/keegan_csmith/amarokpidgin/get/tip.tar.bz2

You may have to rename it to tip.amarokscript.tar.bz2 for it to be installed.

AmarokPidgin with Amarok 2 does not yet support configuration, so instead you have to manually edit the file ~/.kde4/share/apps/amarok/scripts/amarokPidgin/AmarokPidgin.ini and add cover_icon=True. If the file does not exist use this file: http://pastebin.com/xGFw4Xi4

 non ascii artist string

Hi, I got some mp3 with japanese artist name and when playing them amarokpidgin was crashing with this message:
   File "/home/shad/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/amarokpidgin/AmarokPidgin.py", line 76, in __getitem__
return str(self.player.GetMetadata().get(key, ''))
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode characters in position 0-4: ordinal not in range(128)

I have to add ".encode('utf-8')" to the
return str(self.player.GetMetadata().get(key, '')) code to make it working again

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
