Description:

This is a script for amarok (you need amarok >= 1.2beta4). The script shows the cover of the album you are listening embedded in your desktop.

It also adds a lightning effect (this is configurable by the user)

NOTE: this is not a karamba script

You need pyqt and pykde to run it.




Changelog:

0.2:
-Now it hides the cover if amarok is stopped (Thanks to Pierre Habouzit).
-Hides itself if there is no cover defined.
-It shows an alert if you dont have PyQT or PyKDE installed (Thanks to Mark Kretschmann).
-The light filter is a little bit smoother now
-Real cd-box borders instead the old gray borders

0.1a:
-Get the coverImage using "dcop amarok player" instead of "dcop amarok playlist"
-Fixed the tab order in the config dialog
-Now it's correctly packaged

0.1:
-Initial release

Since markey likes to keep us guessing, this script won't work on newer versions of amaroK (unless something has changed again :P). Line 171 needs to be changed to:
song = popen("dcop amarok player coverImage").read()[0:-1]

Basically, change playlist to player.

Its a cool script. Don't listen to them, Karamba folks can write Karamba scripts, this is better as it is. I didn't even know you could do this.

An idea would be to use a QSocketNotifier rather then QTimer to query for updates. You can see the ruby template or Uplisting for a ruby version of this.

The script is incorrectly packaged for the amaroK install script thing to work. The correct format is described at the end of:

change the timerEvent with the following : http://rafb.net/paste/results/urOqie66.html


for guys that have some problems with the plugin (no image drawn) :

change the line :

song = popen("dcop amarok playlist coverImage").read()[0:-1]

into

song = popen("dcop amarok player coverImage").read()[0:-1]

 dont port to karamba

 
 by laktose on: Feb 2 2005

Don't port this to superkaramba, why should you? It works without it, and superkaramba is always slow, buggy, can't deal with displaying icons behind it, uses all your ram, so if you can create such widgets without the aid of superkaramba, go for it! We need to move to widgets being integrated with KDE instead of being a blocky thing that simply sits above everything, blocks everything below it, and slows your computer down...

agreed.
karamba is somewhat sucky. and this is something for kde+amaroK, not for karamba at all.

 executable flag

Score 50%

hey, cool script! thanks!

would be nice, if you could set the +x flag for desktop.py inside the tar.bz2. (tar -cfpj)

seems it wouldnt start otherwise here. markey: i assume we still rely on the script.py being executable, then?

regards,
muesli

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
