Description:

Fetches album art from Discogs.com and Last.fm.

The built in Amarok Cover Manager only allows fetching from amazon.com, which may be fine if your music collection largely consists of popular music. But if large parts of your music collection are vinyl rips or releases on underground labels, searching discogs.com will yield much better results.
This script allows fetching album cover art for the currently playing track from discogs.com by clicking onto any track in the playlist and selecting:
"Fetch Covers" -> "For Currently Playing Track"
Already existing local album art (image files from the currently playing track's folder) as well as relevant album art from Last.fm and Discogs.com can then be browsed / saved / deleted.

Hint:
If the window is not opening in the foreground but started minimized with the taskbar item flashing, the KDE focus stealing prevention level doesn't allow focussing our window. This can be fixed by setting this:
System Settings > Window Behaviour > Advanced > Focus Stealing Prevention Level: None

Prerequisites:
- Qt4.4.X
- PyQt4 (Python bindings for QT)

Keyboard Shortcuts:
The GUI can completely be used through keyboard interaction.
Show CoverFetcher Tab: Alt+F
Show Configuration Tab: Alt+C
Show Log Tab: Alt+L
Save image: Alt+S
Delete image: Alt+D
Show next image: Alt+RightArrow
Show previous image: Alt+LeftArrow
(Un)fit cover to window: Alt+Z
Quit: Alt+F4 / Escape

The window won't close if you click save. Press Escape or Alt+F4.

The cover will just be copied to the folder where the album resides, Amarok will notice this only if you activate 'Watch folders for changes' in your Collection options.

 PyQT Debian/Gnome

First of All great SCRIPT !!! =D
love it


but im a bedian user and here you will encounter several problems with it...

using debian etch and gnome 2.14.3

I encountered a big Problem with my debian packaged Version of PyQT.
When i start the script and take a look at the log it says:
Error: Wrong statement
self.discogsLinkLabel.setOpenExternalLinks(True)

this error is caused by PyQT 4.2 and lower
the function setOpenExternalLinks does not exist in packages below 4.4.X

so i build them from source and CoverFetcher works fine now :D

same problem?
solution:

Get the sources needed
$wget http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/static/Downloads/PyQt4/PyQt-x11-gpl-4.4.3.tar.gz
$wget http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/static/Downloads/sip4/sip-4.7.7.tar.gz
$wget ftp://ftp.trolltech.no/qt/source/qt-x11-opensource-src-4.4.3.tar.gz

PyQT = python QT bindings
SIP = python qt binder ^^
QT = Qt

now unpack them
$tar xvfz PyQt-x11-gpl-4.4.3.tar.gz
$tar xvfz sip-4.7.7.tar.gz
$tar xvfz qt-x11-opensource-src-4.4.3.tar.gz

installing qt
$cd qt-x11-opensource-src-4.4.3
$./configure | or | $sh configure
$make
$su -c make install

now add the qmake binding to your Exported path
$su -c nano /etc/profile

at the end of this document you find something like:
export PATH

cahnge it to:
export PATH=/usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.4.3/bin:$PATH

strg+o to save in editor nano ^^
you could take any you prefer eg. gedit or vim


go voer to install SIP
$cd ..
$cd sip-4.7.7
$python configure.py
$make
$su -c make install

now get on this python qt bindings
$cd ..
$cd PyQt-x11-gpl-4.4.3
$python configure.py
$make
$su -c make install


now all sould be done.
get to amarok and start your CoverFetcher =D

great script and i hope this works 4 you
if you encounter any problems ... let me know

Really a great script!
Will you make a port for Amarok2?

P.s. the Last.Fm search I think that doesn't work anymore, so I keep only the discogs one.

last.fm works, but the query format must be:
<Artist> - <Album>

discogs.com works - again - since a few days ago they broke my script with a small change in their XML response.

I think I'm the biggest fan of this script ;)

 PyQt installation trouble

The script doesn't work for me, so I followed the muskatnuss tip. But, in the last step, i.e., the PyQt-x11-gpl-4.4.3 installation, in the "python configure.py", the system give me the following message "Determining the layout of your Qt installation...
Error: Failed to determine the layout of your Qt installation. Try again using
the --verbose flag to see more detail about the problem."
I did look for answers in the Google, but I still found nothing. Please, help me!

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.
