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:

Hi I read the page that you are going to Windows again. It's sad that you are going away from Linux. You have taste the power of the Linux desktop. But I have to agree on some points you make, out of the box hardware support on Windows sucks big time but all manufacturers make nice drivers for Vista and XP and most of the time forget the Linux users. The Linux community works 24/7 to make all hardware works right but... you say it already it's still not perfect but getting better.

It's sad to see that the MS vendor Locking still works even on people that knows that.

I still use Windows for some programs like games and for example the Gom encoder to convert movies to SVI files so my Samsung P2 player can play them, there are Linux programs but all are not that easy to use. I have a dual boot on my home machine and most of the time I'm behind KDE 3.5 and love this desktop, but sometimes I like XP too, it's not "MS Windows" that i like but after some tweaking and downloading the right drivers and a lot of other -Open Source/Close Source- "killer apps" Windows works fine.

You are going back to Windows thats your decision.... good luck with Windows, I hope you install a good virus/spyware/ad-ware scanner :P

I hope you can find your way again on Windows if not KDE 4 is still out there waiting for you ;)

 Arranging of icons

Hi,
this is indeed a great app. However I'm not able to arrange the application icons like it is shown in the first picture. I've got my panel on the right side as well but I can't figure out how to arrange the Icons next to each other. In my case they just line up under each other and are huge.
Thanks

That seems to be a strange bug.

Could you restart Kicker, or KDE and tell me if icons are still aligned?
If yes, could you send me a screenshot?

Thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately a reboot did not help. Here is a screenshot of my desktop:

Ah, I misunderstood the problem and tought it was a bug in Kirocker Music Display.
I get it, now: you are talking about the top icons, the application launcher icons (as you said it in your first post).

On KDE, you have to add the "Application Launcher" applet, and then move all the icons in that new applet.
This applet will layout all the icons in how many columns you want.

To add the Applet, right-click the panel, click "Unlock" if needed, then click "Add Applet..." and double-click the applet named "Application Launcher".
Now, you have to drag and drop the icons (if I remember well) to the launcher and remove the bigs ones. Or right click the launcher applet and choose "Add Icon", if the first method didn't worked.

I just discovered kirocker and now have to read it's without maintainer :(. That's so sad... But thanks for this great piece of software and I hope you get well with Windows (I know you don't want to hear that, but I think you definitely had chosen the wrong distribution).

I hope someone out there has the skills and guts to port this great app to KDE4!


Want Debian Sid with spices? Get sidux at sidux.com - it simply works :)

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
