This plasmoid is a controller and a visualizer of informations about the songs for amarok 2.0.
It is quite, let's say, advanced compared with the "Now Playing" plasmoid. I have Kirocker as a model, so it works well even on a thin panel.
Currently it shows basilar info about the song, the cover image, the rating and other minor things, but I plan to add some other Things in the future.
Anyway if you have some feature request, please tell me!

Hope you enjoy it!

 Album Art

 by yuth on: Mar 14 2009
Score 50%

First of all I would like to thank you for the great plasmoid.

I am using WolfPlay on Ubuntu 9.04. WolfPlay does not update the album art for the albums that does have one. I noticed that this is due to the problem with the path used by WolfPlay. It uses */usr/share/apps/amarok/images/nocover.png* instead of */usr/share/kde4/apps/amarok/images/nocover.png*

What I suggest is make this path configurable while compiling the plugin so even if a distro use different path, the plugin would work with out altering the code

If the Amaork window has been minimized then the show button just displays it in the task bar or not. Could the internal command be changed so if minimized it will unminimize the window so it is displayed on the desktop.

to show amarok playwolf calls its dbus method that is designed to do that. so it is an amarok bug rather than one of playwolf

 Plasma Crash

Thanks for writing this plasmoid. I have just one problem. If I close it and then try to add it again, it crashes plasma every single time. I've uploaded a backtrace here: http://pastebin.com/f1bda0367

I'm on KDE 4.2.2.

 installation for newbs

I thought there used to be a 'how to install' option on this site. Can't see it for this plasmoid - am I missing something? I would really like to install this! (using KDE 4.2.1, amarok 2.02 on Fedora 10)

Newbs are the future.

you're right, the 'how to' button disappeared.
cd playwolf
mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ../
sudo (or su -c) make install

i'll add a INSTALL file in the next release

Any suggestions? As far as I can see I have the latest version of cmake installed from the fedora repository.

the problem is not cmake, but this:
"CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindKDE4.cmake:84 (MESSAGE):
ERROR: cmake/modules FindKDE4Internal.cmake not found..."
you seem to don't have the kde headers installed. i never used fedora, but usually the package is called kdelibs-dev

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.
