TV Kio Slave

The TV KIO slave is a way of nicely displaying your media collection. It is still at a very early stage in development, but should be stable. It is really just a way of allowing Konqueror to support Wide Icon view without needing to edit Konqueror.

The easiest way to see what this does is to look at the screenshots. The idea behind it is to make file browsing a bit prettier. The inspiration came from the Wide Icon view in Xbox Media Center, and it follows much the same principles. This kio slave searches for the appropriate image, and displays the folder in a graphical format. When the user selects a TV show (folder), they are taken to the normal konqueror file view.

This doesn't have to be used for just TV shows, anything which divides into categories could make use of this.

Download the tarball, extract and cd to the directory.
sudo make install

This requires KDE and QT library headers. Easiest way is to run "sudo apt-get build-dep ipodslave"
Konqueror needs to be restart before it will see the new KIO.

point konqueror to "tv:/PATH_TO_MEDIA" ie. "tv:/mnt/share/tv"

Konqueror needs to be restart before it will see the new KIO.

You will probably find that many of your TV shows don't have icons, and therefore don't appear like my beautiful screenshots.
For an icon to appear there must a file titled "folder.jpg" must be placed in each subfolder. Please note it must be called "folder.jpg" even if the image is a PNG, TIF or JPEG.
So for the above example, if you have a folder /mnt/share/tv/Family Guy you need to place the icon at /mnt/share/tv/Family Guy/folder.jpg

These icons can be found by click 'fetch icon' in the lower right corner of the button.

There is much left to finish - Below are a few of my "plans for v0.02"

Automatic icon downloading within the KIO
Allow a range of icon names.
Support KIO slaves inside it, so it works over a network
Handle going into subfolders, for TV series and the files themselves
Show Files
Anything that you guys suggest

I agree entirely, that's the main feedback I've been getting. The main reason that isn't in the 0.1 release is because I'm yet to find a good default icon to use for the files.

I've just been reading your blog. (as best as google can translate it). I'm glad you like it.

 kio tv on gentoo

HI David i'm rusty from divilinux blog

you have wrote:

The issue (I think, I can’t understand all your comment) is the fact that I hardcoded the address
/usr/share/apps/kio_tv/header.html and /usr/share/apps/kio_tv/empty.png into the code. I realise it was a hack, but it’s only an early release.

yes this is my problem, kio tv working but don't find the html for formatting the page inside konqueror.

after make install gentoo copy the file header.html and empty.png in /usr/kde/3.5/share/apps/kio_tv

now i have moved kio_tv from /usr/kde/3.5/share/apps/ in /usr/share/apps and working well.

Tanks so Much :D

Must have been a temporary thing - They'd best not have gone down. I've just spend ages adding auto icon fetching using their API!

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.
