Amarok Full Screen

Amarok Full Screen

Amarok Full Screen

Link:  http://
Minimum required   Qt 3.x
Downloads:  32068
Submitted:  Feb 3 2007
Updated:  Mar 20 2007


UPDATE: as more people get involved into this project, it needs some organisation and version management. A sourceforge project should be opened soon.

This is a full screen front end for Amarok. The look can be changed by custom THEMES.

to build from source, you need Qt3 development files (IT WILL NOT WORK WITH QT4!!), kde development files (dcopclient.h) and the g++ compiler. Just run "make" to compile the program. If it doesn't work, try running "qmake" (or "qmake-qt3") first and then "make".
For installation run "make install" (requires root priviliges)
To run the program just run "amarokFS". An entry in the start-menu should also be created (may depend on distro, tested on ubuntu).

You can find openSuse 10.2 rpm-packages on http://ftp.huessenbergnetz.de/pub/paketdepots/suse/openSUSE_10.2/
(many thanks to Buschmann)

First theme:

This amarok-script can also be useful:

Yes, that's a f***** good idea!
I had to play a lot with the makefile to compile it.

- I used $(QTDIR).
- run /usr/qt/3/bin/qmake again.
- added :
-I/usr/kde/3.5/include in the INCPATH (there's no var such as $KDEDIR ?
- added : -L/usr/kde/3.5/lib

and then it compiled ;)

Question : I don't have the picture of the album like on your picture :'(

- Ideas :
>> ESC to quit (i used alt+f4)
>> change background

- After :
>> maybe a GUI for some options, like choose an Icon theme, disable screensaver (not so important for me, I don't use screensavers ^^).

Well, keep going! ;)

yay! nice app you work on!

since you asked for suggestions:
it would be great to add some modularity allowing to configure which elemnents to show, at what size and position. such configurations could even be shared, which is always fun.

possible embeddable modules:

  • visuals

  • qt-widgets representing similar things as in the amarok gui

  • (big sized) lyrics

    • slowly scrolling

    • smoothly away in the 3rd dimension (as the star wars episode introductions do)

    • in sync with something like singit, http://stud.fbi.h-da.de/~glogow/

    • (well i once thought about such a thing, so i had to share that idea although it's out of the scope of that app)

  • my musikuiz script (or a rewrite ;-)

  • see http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=48961
    yeah, that'd give it a nice gui!

other thoughts:

  • shortcut the visible buttons

  • provide a windowed mode

have fun,

For the shortcuts, I'm not so sure because my amarok shortcuts are still working when this app is running ;)

Great idea!
You could make a good screensaver out of this, I often listen to music without actually sitting at my computer. I don't think it should be too hard to implement with KScreenSaver since all of KDE uses KParts, but then again, I'm not a coder so I wouldn't really know.
Superb idea none the less! :D

This is a great Idea!

But would it be possible to implement a Playlist Browser, similar to Itunes "Cover Flow", where you can scroll trough all the cover picturs, and if you choose one of the albums, he shows the tracks?

You find it here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/jukebox/coverflow.html

That way it would be easier to find a track and an Album you like, without clicking through all tracks by the "next" button, and without going out of the fullscreen mode.

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.
