Amarok 2.0 Script

Score 86%


Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  1041
Submitted:  Apr 21 2009
Updated:  Sep 17 2009


Notifies you of song changes using native popup dialogs (via org.freedesktop.Notifications if you have it, kdialog if you don't). It is intended as a replacement for the built-in OSD.

If you are looking for notifications using libnotify, look at meerkat's NotifyAmarok: http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php/NotifyAmarok?content=103307.

Contact me if you want to add to the existing translations (English, Polish*, Spanish, Italian, Russian, French, German).
Feel free to leave any suggestions or requests.

*diacriticals do not work at this time


Known Bugs:
- "Resumed Playing" is sometimes triggered when skipping tracks. (it seems trackPlayPause is being called for some reason)
- when a notifiction is reused, it disappears as per the original timeout

Since most of the features added here, though significant, I took them from meerkat's NotifyAmarok, I think this partial jump is warranted.
- FEATURE: added new metadata tags (pretty much all the ones there are plus some from NotifyAmarok)
- FEATURE: added option to display album art in notification
- FEATURE: added ability to change paused message independently
- [0.5.1] FIX: now reuses old amaroKnotify notifications (only works with org.freedesktop.Notifications) not until Amarok fully implements its qtscriptbindings and includes some form of QProcess.execute
- [0.5.1] FIX: if the new Notifications interface does not exist, will fall back to kdialog
- [0.5.1] added French translation, courtesy of oboulonis
- [0.5.2] added German translation, courtesy of hoihappen
- [0.5.2] FIX: fixed some problems with non-ASCII characters and kdialog
- [0.5.3] updated Russian translation, courtesy of nu11
- [0.5.3] FIX: untranslated text will now default to English
- [0.5.3] FIX: fixed some more problems with accented characters affecting covers
- [0.5.4] Updated Spanish translations courtesy of Fenix-TX

- FIX: If you cancel, the configuration dialog does not retain the old settings anymore.
- FIX: If you restart, the duration value is retained.
- FEATURE: Added volume change notification
- FEATURE: added configuration controls for deciding which notifications to receive
- [0.3.1] added Italian translation, courtesy of diegolanteri
- [0.3.2] added Russian translation, courtesy of HucK
- [0.3.3] FIX: stopping or exiting will no longer trigger a notification

- FEATURE: added localization support (uses the system language, but defaults to English)
- [0.2.1] added Polish translation, courtesy of madsheytan
- [0.2.2] added Spanish translation, courtesy of Fenix-TX

 crashes with amarok 2.0.2

This looks really great. I tried to install it (via GHNS) but when I activate it, amarok crashes.
You can find the backtrace here:

I'm sorry that my script has caused you so much trouble. It seems that this is not an isolated incident.

You can find the particular bug report here: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=182810

Is it possible to translate it, or it depends on amarok translations? If it's possible then how can i do this?

Be free to have a choice.

I wasn't sure if the Qt localisation feature was usable by this, so I adapted one from Lyrics Workshop. I hope it is what you are looking for.

You can use the lang/en.js as a template.

Thank you for the suggestion!

Hi, just saw that we nearly simultaneously released similar scripts, but luckily used different (turned) names. I like the configurability of yours, maybe i'll adept that for my libnotify version.

 Volume support?

Great plugin.
Is it possible to also show volume level, when changing with mouse wheel over tray icon?

I was wondering how sought after such a feature would be, but it shouldn't be too much trouble. I just have a few questions I might need a bit of feedback on.

1. What would be the best way to visually display this information, though? Here are the methods I was considering:

  • 38/100

  • [::::::|||] 38 [||||||||:]

  • [ 38/100] [|||:::::::]

  • (spaces don't appear well in kdialog)

    2. Would it be worthwhile to note whether this was an increase or a decrease?

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    1. Amaroks OSD shows
    "Volume 38%"
    and I believe that's fine.

    2. I don't think this is so important. Only the volume level is enough. Simple, as the default OSD.

    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
