Gnome Multimedia Keys


Amarok Script

Gnome Multimedia Keys

Gnome Multimedia Keys

Link:  http://
Minimum required   GNOME 2.x
Downloads:  13507
Submitted:  Jun 22 2007
Updated:  Apr 25 2009


This script will allow the use of keyboard multimedia keys in Gnome 2.18 and above (eg. ubuntu feisty/gusty/hardy) to control playback. This includes most multimedia buttons found on many laptops. Support for this was broken due to changes in the handling of keyboard shortcuts by gnome 2.18 and later.

Amarok 2 Version is here: http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=103448

Currently supported operations are:
Next Track
Previous Track

Simply run the script, no configuration of the script itself is required. The desired keyboard shortcuts can be configured by selecting "System-->Prefrences-->Keyboard Shortcuts" from the Gnome pannel.

python >2.4


0.2: Added checks to make sure we only run on an affected system.
0.3: Locale fix.
0.4: Add configuration dialogue, add checks to avoid multiple instances.
0.5: add gnome 2.21/22 support
0.5.2: locale fix

(Gnome Multimedia Keys 0.5.2)

Hi everybody!
Those are the commands you need to play, pause and so on:

qdbus org.kde.amarok /Player org.freedesktop.MediaPlayer.Play
qdbus org.kde.amarok /Player org.freedesktop.MediaPlayer.Pause
qdbus org.kde.amarok /Player org.freedesktop.MediaPlayer.Stop
qdbus org.kde.amarok /Player org.freedesktop.MediaPlayer.Next
qdbus org.kde.amarok /Player org.freedesktop.MediaPlayer.Prev

If you know how to put them in a script ;)

Sorry for not keeping up to date with the comments here... as for Amarok 2 support I don't think it it's going to happen anytime soon - not from me anyway.

The scripting interface has changed completely and scripts are now required to be written in javascript so it would mean starting over a fresh in a language I've never used before.

Currently I don't even have Amarok 2 installed and my time is limited however I will try and investigate this sometime soon.

 great utility

The functionality enabled with this script plugin -- namely, being able to control a background music player process, from my keyboard -- it's such that I've been missing since I began to migrate my media files from iTunes+Vista+DRM to Amarok+Linux on my Linux desktop.

These little conveniences can serve to make the computing experience a whole lot nicer. So, thank you for providing this script plugin, to the public Amarok users. It's sincerely appreciated, by this user, too.

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.
