amaroK Desktop Script

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.


-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

-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

-Initial release

Does this script work on the gnome desktop?
I am currently running amarok on gnome... When I try this script, nothing happens....
Has anyone managed it to work?

I know it was months ago, but in case my fellow gnome users have the same problem: Just install the latest pyKDE bindings.

My issue: The configuration button in the script manager in Amarok does not load a configuration window. I assume this a gnome/kde compatabilty issue, but does anyone know how i can correct it?

All I want to do is re-position the cd cover on my desktop, however clicking and dragging doesn't work, and changing the script is way out of my league. Any ideas?

The problem does not look like a gnome problem.

I have installed the latest versions of SIP, pyQT3 and PyKDE and the configuration window won't open on my KDE-Desktop 3 either.

The script protocol tells me about some errors. Maybe someone can take a look to the problem...



Protocol (after calling configuration):

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/jay/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/desktop/desktop.py", line 260, in timerEvent
File "/home/jay/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/desktop/desktop.py", line 299, in configure

 Does not work

So it keeps telling me it does not find the pyqt folder though I've installed it (and pykde too).
I'm on gnome

Thank you

 how to edit

 by hubfred on: Jul 17 2008

the script itself is working but where can I alter the settings of it? I cannot relocate the cover and it is too big. Using configure in the script manager has no effect at all, neither has edit in the context menu. This holds for any script installed. On the screenshot I can see that resizing is actually possible. Is this a bug that came up recently or am I completely on the wrong track?

 Stupid workaround

 by Pappice on: Nov 20 2008

Sorry, I'm not an expert in python, but I've found a (stupid?) workaround to solve the problem of the configuration window:
edit the file desktop.py, in /home/yourusername/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/desktop, and go to the the line n.51
just change that line with
net = NETRootInfo(0xFFFFFF)
It will work!!!
At least, it works in my case... BTW I use GNOME.

IMPORTANT: no idea of what I've done!! Use this at your risk!

 new features

 by tonybeccar on: Feb 19 2009

Hi, as I'm no programmer, I'd like to propose some new nice features to this cool script. It would be nice that the cover could be resizable and sticky, so that it shows on every desktop. Also you can provide information such as artist, album and title, like a now playing screenlet but with the only difference that Amarok speaks to the "screenlet" and not otherwise causing high amounts of cpu. I think showing the nowplaying info should be no problem if you can show the now playing cover. Thanks a lot and if I can help in anything rather than programming, let me know. Bye!

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
