Description:

Make your Kicker (the KDE main panel) rock with your music.

It is a Kicker applet that displays what you listen to in Amarok.
A full-screen display can also be used independently of the applet.

With this panel applet, you always know what you are listening to, and can watch its cover and star rating: it is always visible.
It allows you to rate your music with one click: you can quickly change the number of stars of your musics from anywhere on your desktop.
Finally, it let you remotely control Amarok with one click from anywhere on your desktop: play next or previous track, pause, play, and seek to another position in the current track.

You also have the possibility to show your currently playing music in a beautiful full-screen display. Ideal for parties or to listen to music while doing something else away from the computer.
The full-screen display can be triggered independently of the panel applet. You can start it from the KMenu or from Amarok itself.

To install:
- You need to have automake 1.9 installed for the compilation to work. It should be Ok on modern Linux distributions. You also need Python for the Amarok script to work (optional). This should also be Ok.
- Extract the archive
- Open a konsole in the extracted folder (in Konqueror, go to the extracted folder and press F4)
- Run this set of command: ./configure --prefix=$(kde-config --prefix) && make && sudo make install
- It will asks your root password to install the applet on your system
- Right click the Kicker, choose "Add an Applet to the Panel..." (once the panel is unlocked)
- Double-click "Kirocker Music Display"
- Start playing a music. The applet is empty when Amarok is stopped or paused, to not annoy you with useless information when you are working
- If you do not want the panel applet, the full-screen display can be trigerred from the KMenu or from Amarok itself (restart Amarok, enable the "Kirocker Music Display" script, and then right-click the playlist to see the action to show full-screen)

Note: After an upgrade from a previous version, press Alt+F2 and type the command "kicker default restart" to restart the Panel with the new installed version.

How to make the Kicker translucent:
The Kicker translucent white vertical background is also included in the package.
- Your screen resolution need to be 1280*800. If not, you will need some artistic skills and a Gimp experience to modify the given background
- Extract the image "Kicker Right Translucent Background.png" located in the Kirocker Music Display archive
- Open your desktop background image with The Gimp
- Drag and drop "Kicker Right Translucent Background.png" to the Gimp window of your background image
- Save the image and set it as your desktop background image
- Right click the Kicker and choose "Configure the Panel..." (once the panel is unlocked)
- Place the panel on the right (click the button on the right)
- Set the size to "Personalized" and enter "96 pixels"
- In the "Appearance" tab, check "Enable transparency"
- Click "Ok" and you're done: ENJOY!




Changelog:

4.0:
- Theme support with wonderful ones provided by default and a graphical editor that is both powerful and surprisingly easy to use
- Have fun karaokees with automatically-scrolling lyrics
- Added a better no-cover image, from Oxygen (sorry guys, but it's the only beautiful and scalable image I found)
- Now using the "Track, Artist, Album" order (instead of "Artist, Album, Track") to be more complient with other displays, such as iPod, Last.fm, and even Amarok.
- Changed the application icon to a better one, using an Oxygen composition. Also show the icon back in the panel big tooltip, as it cannot be confused with an empty cover image anymore
- Removed a lot of bugs
- Enhanced performances

==========================

This is the End:
I think I will now return back to Windows, so i'm done with KDE development. I will perhapse help the KDE Windows project in the future, tough.
This project is now abandonned.
I'm afraid it will not be ported to KDE 4, unless new developers pop up.

I've created a Gentoo Ebuild for Kirocker Music Display (wanted to integrate it cleanly into my Gentoo).

Thanks Arne,

Could you also add the x86 keyword, as it works fine on my x86 system?

Thanks!

I've put it into testing for both archs. If I get at least 5 reports of people that it works on the respective platform, I'll switch it to stable.

 Ebuild for 2.0 Beta1

 
 by ArneBab on: Feb 15 2007
 
Score 50%

I created an ebuild for the Beta:

http://draketo.de/dateien/gentoo/kirocker-2.0_beta1.ebuild

Besides: If you could change the URL for the source to

http://slaout.linux62.org/kirocker-2.0_beta1.tar.gz

it would make the life of ebuild-authors far easier. It would then suffice to change the ebuild name to support a new version :)

Best wishes,
Arne

I love this applet, work fine in opensuse 10.2,

Could be the perfect icon from start Amarok, if when Amarok is off Kirocker launch it, and the rest time running like controls (play, pause, stop and cover).. is a idea.

Regards

This is done in 2.0: Amarok is started by the applet if it is not already running and you click Play.

And with 2.2, it also solve a bug that kept the applet to think Amarok is playing while you have quitted it.

Enjoy it ;)

 Support font color.

Hi. this applet is very useful for me. But... I have dark color wallpapers and transparent panel.
Did you add ability to change font color of text in this applet in next releases?

Thanks for your job. :o)

I remembered the Kicker taskbar used a light text color when there is a dark background color and my applet would automatically use it.

Now that I tested it, I was wrong :-)

Where do you configure the text color of the taskbar buttons to automatically use the same?
Well... it uses "text button" color. I cannot do with that.

How do you succeed to have a readable taskbar?

I could also do an average of the background color and compute a black or white color, and add a shadow to be certain it's OK.

If not, then it will be configurable.

Here is a workarround to wait the addition of the smart applet and the option:

Open the file src/coverdisplay.cpp from the source archive, and go to the line 685. It should be:

if (m_orientation == FullScreen)
painterBuffer.setPen(Qt::white);

Remove the line "if (m_orientation == FullScreen)".
Recompile and reinstall.
You're done.

Now, Kirocker Music Display 2.2 detects the dominating background color under the text and switch between black and white background colors.

To be even more readable, the text now have a border of the opposite color.

So with your dark background color, Kirocker Music Display 2.2 will automatically display the text in white, and surround it with a black border.

Enjoy it ;)

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
