Description:

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!

 Bug

I have a bug using kde 4.5.4 with the elegance theme. The song progress meter is a Voltmeter (like the one in the temperature plasmoid) instead of a bar.

Happens on my system too, KDE 4.6 using the standard Air desktop theme.

Confirmed also on KDE 4.8.4 with QT 4.8.2, normally using Androbit but I tried also other themes (including Air).

Interesting note, in plasmoidviewer the bar works as expected.

Okay, leaving this just for history - somehow, restart (or more probably, relog) solved the problem. I have no clue why.

 Playwolf information missing

I am not sure whether it is a KDE 4.6 problem or an Amarok 2.4 problem, but I no longer get covers or lyrics in playwolf.

Hi,
you need to adjust the DBUS interface being used.
As amarok now uses
org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.amarok
instead of
org.kde.amarok.

I just edited playercontroller.cpp and build it.
Works fine again.

Furthermore it seems that the logic of statusChanged is inverted ;)

And i also added a check to the constructor to see if amarok is already running when trying to connect to the DBUS channels of it.
If not i connect to SessionBus.serviceOwnerChanged to be notified when amarok gets started.

Hi,
just found out that there's some more to do ;).

Actually playwolf does not notice a track change anymore.

Furthermore i would like to use PropertiesChanged signal, which is provided by MPRIS to get the player status instead of deriving it from statusChange.

BR

Maybe someone has fix for not changing titles issue? Everything works well but after song change it doesnt show new titles... Counter works tough.

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.
