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.

Why I returned back to Windows:

 That's sad

While I'm not questioning your reasons for returning to Windows, I'm really disappointed that you will no longer be developing for KDE. Kirocker and Basket notes are two of my favorite apps with a lot of potential, and to think that they will no longer be developed by you is disturbing.
Anyway, thanks for all your effort and best wishes for whatever the future holds for you.
(and let's hope that someday soon you will return...till then, au revoir)

Great app, i've used in Mandriva. Now I'm using Kubuntu Gutsy and I cannot install:

checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X libraries. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!

Any idea of what can I do?

Hello calleneptuno,

its a error message about the missing "xorg-dev" package.

I have found out that you will need the following packages:

xorg-dev
libqt3-mt-dev
kde-devel

But after this ill become an error 2, so i dont have lust to test this app.

P.S: Excuse my bad englisch, iam german

I was quite upset to read this... You will be surly missed! From the bottom of our hearts, from all of us GNU/Linux Kde users :(
Best of luck in Windows land!
P.S I too switched to linux because of kde but now I love the whole way linux runs and its other tools. Ironically I've had more problems installing Windows then Linux (and I've installed Linux a lot of times on different machines).

 Kubuntu

I wouldn't suggest using kubuntu.
I had similar bugs, a lot of minor ones. And there were also some grave ones.

Then when a new version of Kubuntu was available I rather switched to Mandriva 2008.0 and I must say, I'm happy. Nothing ever worked as good as Mandriva is now. I used Mandriva before and it didn't work as good. Only problem in Linux I have (and is probably going to stay) is ALSA and closed audion chip specs :( I only have front 2 and surround 2 speakers working, no center and subwoofer :(

Btw, will anyone continue this project. It's still missing some features (the most important: when it's hidden it shouldn't waste kicker space).

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.
