CopyCover (amaroK Script)

Link:  http://
Downloads:  21696
Submitted:  Apr 1 2005
Updated:  Oct 21 2007


Copy the cover of current playing track to the song's dir. Does not overwrite
existing images in this folder. The filenames can be configured with the
"Configure" dialog. By default, it's the album's name, with spaces replaced
by underscores.

An "offline" version is also included. If you have amaroK >= 1.2.3,
launch it and run the script on the command line. It will find all the downloaded covers and copy them in the right directory, just as the amarok plugin would have done. It also creates the desktop files.
Make sure you first run the script with the "-d" option (debug mode), in which
the actions will only be printed, not commited. A --help option is available.
AmaroK >= 1.2.3 and python >= 2.3 are required for this offline version.

The copycover-offline.py and addcoverdirs.sh scripts are NOT meant to be run through Amarok's script manager.


Version: 1.9 Date: 2007/10/21
- fix queries when the database is in MySQL
- tell the session manager not to restart the script on login

Version: 1.8 Date: 2007/02/17
- fix the copycover-offline.py script to use the new device path feature of
Amarok. Thanks to all those who sent me a patch.

Version: 1.7 Date: 2006/10/19
- fixes for Amarok 1.4
- progress bar on the offline version
- use large images when available

Version: 1.6 Date: 2005/05/31
- bugfixes for the "remove covers" option
Thanks a lot to Gleb Litvjak and KNT for that.
- write debuginfo to ~/.xsession-errors by default

seems like it does not work with amarok 1.4.7 and sqlite.
i see the "processing artist" strings, but covers are not copied to folders or deleted from cache.

thanks, perfect script. Just one minor suggestion: maybe you could add an option for one time run through the whole collection, instead of copying just the cover of currently played song...

well, it is there already :)
script archive contains :
this will run through your collection and copy everything.
whether it works with the latest amarok version i'm not sure.

 1.4.7 + SQLite

 by DASGiB on: Feb 1 2008

To make the "copycover-offline.py" script work with AmaroK 1.4.7 and SQLite you need to modify the script a bit. The SQL CONCAT() function is not supported in SQLite, so you have to use the || operator:

Open the script (~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/copycover/copycover-offline.py) in your favorite editor , go to line 124 and change:

SELECT DISTINCT album.name, CONCAT(devices.lastmountpoint,'/',tags.dir) FROM


SELECT DISTINCT album.name, devices.lastmountpoint || '/' || tags.dir AS dir FROM

That's it. Now start AmaroK and run the script in debug mode (no files will be copied):

python copycover-offline.py -d -v -c cover.png

This would create a file called "cover.png" in every album directory (of course only if you have set a album in AmaroK ;-).

When the result is fine run the script again, but without the -d switch:

python copycover-offline.py -v -c cover.png

Confirming this fix with PostgreSQL 8.2 on Ubuntu Hardy as well. Amarok

Although there is no point in selecting AS dir though.

SELECT DISTINCT album.name, devices.lastmountpoint||'/'||tags.dir FROM

is enough =)

I'm getting this while running the offline script (the same as running in normal mode)

Running in debug mode. No change will be done.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "copycover-offline.py", line 105, in <module>
artists = associateResults2(dcop_artists)
File "copycover-offline.py", line 73, in associateResults2

 MySQL+1.4 offline pr

Hi all,

I'm running Amarok 1.4 with MySQL in an Ubuntu Gutsy and can't get the offline script to work. I see the "processing artist" messages but nothing is copied in the album folder.

I've seen in previous posts that this was supposed to be related to a change required in the script to CONCAT from || but the version I've downloaded has this changed already and still doesn't work.

Any hints? anyone got it working with this configuration?

thanks a lot

reinstalled amarok with a fresh MySQL database and worked like a charm. Problems were probably due to a corrupted dB.

Thanks to the developer and congratulations for an extremely useful peace of software.

Anyone for a script embedding the cover into the tag of the mp3 file? :-)

I have Amarok (Ubuntu Hardy) running Sqlite. I've done the modifications to copy-offline.py but the covers are not copied. Are there other modifications needed to my version of Amarok?

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.
