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.

Great app Sebien. Everything you touch turns to gold. Thats amazing what you are doing. Basket note pads are one of the best apps. Now Kirocker Music Display!

Hope one day someone will hire you to work for KDE full day!!

Hi again Sebian

Just installed mythbuntu and of course amarok and Kirocker with it. Kirocker is the highlight of my living room now :)!

one small question/request i have that comes from using kirocker in the living room. is there any chance you can add keyboard shortcuts to the scroll up/down in the lyrics? i would love using lirc and a remote for that!

as someone said before everything you touch is gold (i also LOVE basket!!!)

thx alot again!

Zeltak

Ah, very interesting!

The lyrics shortcut is something I haven't tought to.

It's an excelent solution and I will implement it shortly.

In fact, I just implemented it.
It will be in 4.0, or in 4.0 Beta 3 if there is one (I still have a lot of things to polish for the final version).

If you want to have the feature right now, there is only a few source files to edit (with eg. KWrite):

In the file src/fullscreen.cpp:
Search for that line:

case Qt::Key_L: m_coverDisplay->toggleLyrics(); break;
And add those two lines just after:
case Qt::Key_U: m_coverDisplay->scrollLyricsUp(); break;
case Qt::Key_D: m_coverDisplay->scrollLyricsDown(); break;

In the file src/coverdisplay.h:
Search for that line:

void toggleLyrics();
And add those two lines just after:
void scrollLyricsUp();
void scrollLyricsDown();

In the file src/coverdisplay.h:
Search for that line:

void CoverDisplay::toggleLyrics()
And add those lines just _BEFORE_:
void CoverDisplay::scrollLyricsUp()
{
if (Settings::showLyrics() && m_lyrics)
kapp->postEvent(m_lyrics, new QKeyEvent(QEvent::KeyPress, Qt::Key_Up, 0, 0));
}
void CoverDisplay::scrollLyricsDown()
{
if (Settings::showLyrics() && m_lyrics)
kapp->postEvent(m_lyrics, new QKeyEvent(QEvent::KeyPress, Qt::Key_Down, 0, 0));
}

In the file src/fullscreen.h:
Search for that line:

"<tr><th>" + i18n("L:") + "</th><td>" + i18n("Show/hide lyrics") + "</td></tr>"
And add this lines just after:
"<tr><th>" + i18n("U/D:") + "</th><td>" + i18n("Scroll lyrics up & down") + "</td></tr>"

Then recompile and reinstall Kirocker Music Display.
Enjoy the U and D keys to scroll lyrics Up and Down, ready to map to your remote.

Keyboard shortcuts to scroll lyrics are now included by default in Kirocker Music Display 4.0 Beta 3.

 New Theme: Deep Down

To celebrate Kirocker Music Display Beta 3, I'm offering a wonderful new theme:

http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Deep+Down+Kirocker+Theme?content=70075

If you have Beta 3, download the file to you computer and simply open it.
It will automatically install and show as your new theme. Isn't that amazing?

 Great Work

Hi Sebien,

I like kirocker very much. But there is one thing I miss: a dcop command to return from fullscreen. So that we can use remote control for starting/ending fullscreen mode.
If I don't use it in KDE-panel,I use a script like:
Quote:


status=`ps -o comm -C kirocker --noheader`


if [ "$status" = 'kirocker' ] ;then

killall kirocker
else
kirocker
fi


But if it is running in the panel, there is no process 'kirocker' an I'am not able to quit it with a command.

For the moment you can trigger the Escape key so that the full screen display will quit.

In a future release, I will add a closeFullScreen() method in the "kicker Kirocker" DCOP interface.

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
