Gnome Multimedia Keys 2

Amarok 2.0 Script

Link:  Link
Minimum required   GNOME 2.x
Downloads:  3237
Submitted:  Apr 25 2009

Description:

This script will allow the use of keyboard multimedia keys to control playback when running Amarok under Gnome 2.22 and above. The keyboard shortcuts you define system wide will then also work in Amarok 2 as if they were "Global shortcuts". This includes most media buttons found on laptops and keyboards.

Based on my version for Amarok 1.4 http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=60910 this is a bit of a hack so please let me know how it works out for you...

Currently supported operations are:
Play/Pause
Pause
Stop
Next Track
Previous Track

Simply run the script, no configuration of the script itself is required. The desired keyboard shortcuts can be configured by selecting "System-->Prefrences-->Keyboard Shortcuts" from the Gnome pannel.

Requires:
python >2.4
python-dbus
libdbus-glib




Changelog:

2.0: Initial version

I ran the script and it detects the media keys but seems that there is a problem communicating with amarok process I'm getting this

detected GNOME v2.24
Using new dbus location
next track
DCOPClient::attachInternal. Attach failed Could not open network socket
DCOPClient::attachInternal. Attach failed Could not open network socket

Sounds like the DCOP server isn't running or isn't properly configured for some reason.

I would try the solutions listed here: http://www.microdevsys.com/WordPress/2008/12/04/fedora-9-kde-4x-error-couldnt-attach-to-dcop-server/

Namely: see if dcopserver is running (ps axfo pid,ppid,user,cmd=|grep dcop)

If not remove stale files like these:

~/.DCOPserver_lhs.localhostservers__0
~/.DCOPserver_lhs.localhostservers_:0
/tmp/.ICE-unix/dcop10328-1227569420
~/.ICEauthority

Restart your Xwindows session and possibly run kdeinit to restart your kde session.

See the link for more details.

Oh by the way, I presume you mean my Gnome media keys script for Amarok 1.4 not this one for Amarok 2...? The Amarok 2 script doesnt use DCOP.

yeah!!! this is the moment in which I feel really stupid for testing something made for amarok 1.4 on amarok 2.x. XD
I didn't see that the 2.x number is for gnome version ajajaja

Sorry about that

Ye, I guess I should have called it something completely different ;) No worries, glad it works now.

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
