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 cover

on my system (Slackware 12.2, KDE 4.1.3) it doesn't display current album cover, but always the generic Last.fm image, while Amarok2 is currently displaying the track album cover. What's wrong?

i now this. when you're listening to lastfm amarok displays the right cover, but it doesn't export it via d-bus, so i can't really do anything about it, except for opening a bug report, thing that i'll do when i'll find the time.

ooh its ok, I realized this issue happens when using streams from Last.fm, while playing local tracks work. It's still a good piece of software and very useful too, keep on the good working :)

i opened a bug on bugs.kde.org, though, and they already fixed this issue, so with the new release you'll see the covers even form lastfm!

 cover display problem

On my system (KDE 4.2 beta 2) the cover is displayed fine if it is stored in ~/.kde4/share/apps/amarok, but it doesn't work for covers that are stored in the music folder, although qdbus reports the path correctly. In case it is relevant, my music folder has non-ascii characters.

Thanks for the new release.

The 'don't show cover' option still doesn't work for me. Using KDE from trunk, and the latest version of the plasmoid.

Be free to have a choice.

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.
