The project developpement is now hosted on: http://sourceforge.net/projects/xul-amarok/
please go there to report bugs or wishes.


REQUIREMENTS:
- python >= 2.3
- pyqt (python QT bindings)
- AmaroK >= 1.4.3
- Firefox >= 1.5

INSTALL:
- Download the archive, then install and run it with AmaroK script manager
- On the first launch, you will be prompted for some parameters:
- interface(optional): the IP adress of your network interface the server will listen on (empty means all)
- port (required): you can leave 8888 as a default
- login/passwd (optional): if you wish to restrict access
- on any host on your network, launch firefox, go to http://amarok_host:8888 , and install the extension
- restart firefox
- launch "AmaroK remote" in the firefox "Tools" menu.
- set the options of the extension to match those on the server

NOTES:
If you get troubles with the configuration interface, you can use this sample xulremote.ini file:

[Debug]
debugajax = off
debugdcop = off

[HttpAuth]
passwd =
login =

[Hosts]
allowed =

[Listen]
interface = 127.0.0.1
port = 8888

 Dynamic Playlists?

 
 by dustbln on: Mar 4 2007
 
Score 50%

not sure if anyone has mentioned this so far, but the remote app does not know anything about dynamic playlist and therefore gets confused e.g. if you try to play an already played song. in addition support for the queue function would be great. ok, this is more likely a feature request for this great piece of software! ;-)

Hi,

You may have problems with your python installation.
what distribution/version are you running?
have you compiled some python modules by yourself?

Hi,
the Sample does help - in some case... but there seems to be another problem.

Well, when i try to execute Xul by Handy -without!- your xulremote.ini, i get this:

markus@markus-desktop:~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/xulremote$ ./XulRemote.py
[XUL remote] error reading config: won't start HTTPD
[XUL remote] starting readStdin
[XUL remote] error reading config, using defaults
Exception in thread Thread-1:

File "./XulRemote.py", line 73, in __init__

gaierror: (-2, 'Name or service not known')

Now, when i paste the .ini in the Directory, i get this:

[XUL remote] starting readStdin
[XUL remote] starting HTTPD

...and: It works!

BUT! when i start the Script from Amarok, i get no Response on http://127.0.0.1:8888/ and it does not work ...

My System:
Ubuntu 6.10 32 Bit on a 64Bit Machine
Python 2.4.4
Amarok 1.4.5
pyqt 4.0.1
Firefox 2.0.0.3

Whatever, thanks for your fast Response!

Hi,
that should be resolved with the last release 0.9b.
and btw, when the script is launched by the Amarok script manager, the config file is read from :
~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts-data/xulremote.ini

 XUL install 100% CPU

 
 by plafundum on: May 21 2007
 
Score 50%

Hello All. I tried to install AmaroK XUL Remote. I will use it a lot b/c my music 'server' is on the 1st floor and I am mostly downstairs where I use an Apple MacBook to control the music. But I noticed that since installing Amarok XUL the CPU is at 100%.

Reproduction: Mandrake SPRING 2007 edition.
1) Did the manual install. Worked on localhost after installling python stuff but uses 100% CPU. And worked not on remote laptop. Apple OS X. Deleted all
2) Noticed that one can also user the Amarok-script installer. TRied this and worked PERFECT!! Also on laptop. No 100% CPU. I love it, what a great solution.
3)Rebooted system to check: Noting worked on Laptop and again 100% CPU.
Any ideas?

Hi,

You may have two instances of the script running, the second one having problems, because the port is already used by the first instance.

could you check if you have 1 or 2 scripts running with:
ps -eaf|grep XulRemote

I think on startup the script may be restored by both Amarok and the KDE session manager.

If this is the problem you have, I will try to detect if another script instance is running on startup.

Ha! I head loads of troubles after installing AmarokXul. Thought it was a pythin-issue, loads of reinstall, f*cked my system totally, took met 10 !!!! hours to repair. But that was my fault.

Yes, you are right!!! I have TWO start scripts running after reboot. (Am I the first one experiencing this?)

output:

there is an open bug:
https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1614228&group_id=180348&atid=892812

I will try to make the script quit if it's launched by kde session manager (ksmserver)

 Can't see/add songs

I can connect to AmaroK, view and control the playlist. The tree works fine for artist and album, but I can't view any tracks. I turned on debug mode. Here is an output:

[XUL remote HTTPD] <== POST REQUEST method=albums&artist=Paul%20McCartney

It fetches the album names, but doesn't fetch the tracks. It looks like a DCOP/AmaroK problem, but I was wondering if anyone had a solution?

I'm still on version 1.3.8 on SuSE 10.1. I have the latest version of XUL Remote.

I've seen this problem raised in previous posts (it was suggested it may be a character encoding issue -- which I thought was resolved?).

Hi,

the minimum amarok version required is 1.4.3.

I think the database structure changed during the 1.4 development, and it looks like there is nothing wrong in your log.

the problem is here:
[XUL remote DCOP ] query: select distinct t.title, t.deviceid, t.url
from album al, artist ar, tags t
where t.artist = ar.id and t.album = al.id and ar.name = 'Paul McCartney' and al.name = 'Memory Almost Full'
order by t.discnumber, t.track
[XUL remote DCOP ] query results: []

perhaps in 1.3.8 there were not some of the requested fields.

could you try this in a terminal:
dcop amarok collection query "select distinct t.title from album al, artist ar, tags t
where t.artist = ar.id and t.album = al.id and ar.name = 'Paul McCartney' and al.name = 'Memory Almost Full'"

anyways, you sould try a post 1.4.3 version to see if it works.
bye

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
