Does anyone have a clue how I can remove the noexec option?

I did remove it from the source, even replacing it with exec, but to no avail. Seem to me the problem is somewhere in hal, where hal mounts it with user (we are mounting as an ordinary user) which implies setting noexec, nosuid and some others.

Any idea how I can get hal to ignore the noexec? - Mar 21 2009

Maybe you could add the following as well:

I guess you have Amarok and MPD on the same machine. So what you will hear is one time the music coming from Amarok (the first) and the second one comes from MPD. MPD starts a little later, since the command to start comes with a small delay from Amarok.

So just turn down the volume in Amarok. - May 23 2007
BTW, this completely rocks!

I now have my (very fat) Amarok Client to control MPD.

I use my Laptop without tone, as the most luxury remote control one could think of. I still have all the features I'm used to. Tried a couple of other MPD clients and although they all have nice features (gmpc and MPD WebAMP) none of them comes close to Amarok.

Thanks. Really enjoy this script.

I had a little hard time getting the path mapping correct. By default it says /:/, so I thought this must be client:server. Or the other way around, but I was right.

So both my client and server use the same mount point. I thought that is enough. It turns out to be that is not the case, since MPD has the path relative to the music root directory, whereas Amarok stores the whole path.

So if you're setup is like this:
NFS Mount point:
/mnt/music_server/music/[collection]

mpd.conf has:
music_directory=/mnt/music_server/music

This means that the MPD collection will start at the collection point, without a slash at the beginning!

Example:
/mnt/music_server/music/R/Radiohead/OK\ Computer/01\ -\ Airbag.flac

Amarok would use this path to refer to the file, whereas MPD would only use: R/Radiohead/OK\ Computer/01\ -\ Airbag.flac

Since the replace syntax was client:server, or replace_client_string:with_server_string it will look like this in this case:

/mnt/music_server/music/:

Nothing after the colon, trust me ;-)

You need to install pyxml. Under Ubuntu that would be: sudo apt-get install python-xml.

After that you will probably need to install py-libmpdclient (which can be found here: http://incise.org/index.cgi/py-libmpdclient2). On my system I needed the python-dev packages. Just unpack it, untar it and run

sudo python setup.py install

Don't forget to configure the script after you start it ;-)

One problem though...

My X server crashes as soon as yakuake is open (the term is visible) and I switch to another virtual desktop. I've also seen it happen when yakuake is open and I click inside a VMWare. Since I use a lot of VMWare this is pretty annoying.

Anything I can do to help out? - Jan 13 2007
Have to correct myself... there is the ability to show a border! - Jan 12 2007
Thanks for stepping in as the maintainer. This piece deserves to be maintained. It really rocks.

There is a couple of features that I found missing and since you asked for feedback, well here they are:
- Konsole has the ability to start certain kind of session (root session, python session, mc session, you name it). It would be kool if yakuake had this option as well.
- Session awareness. If I have two tabs open it would be very, very nice if they come back when I login again (so I can have my normal, my root and my mc session restored)
- A configurable border around the window would be nice as well ;-)
- And yes, I would love sugar and milk with it :-)

Again, thanks for the good work. I'll be looking forward to next releases.

Used the Koeln config file from your website (thanks for that... always some work making your own one)...

Seems to have problems as soon as I switch to WDR Köln. Which shows in the list as WDR K?n. After some time the following error is presented: Can not read more data from channels.conf. End of file reached. Nothing found.

I have to kill klear after that.

I changed the channels.conf, so the entry reads WDR Koeln and now everything works well. No TT issues... Problems were just with ZDF. - Sep 24 2006

Only looked into copycover-offline...

Changing line 112 from:
for file in os.listdir(album_tuple[1]):

To:
for file in os.listdir(album_tuple[1].lstrip('.')):

Seems to fix it.

The new album_tuple seems to have a '.' in front of the path, effectively making the absolute path a relative one (why-oh-why?). Removing it, changes it into an absolute path again...

Now I'm not sure yet, whether the files are copied correctly as well... Will see about that. - Sep 04 2006

There really is no need to run k3b as root. Why would you want to do that? Don't use root unless you realy need it.

Then again, the problem itself is kinda funny, it is probably because your path is screwed up, or your root kde profile is screwed up. Try to remove alle the k3b related stuff under /root/.kde3.x/.

Oh and make a backup. You are root, remember, you've got the power to really screw up your system. - Jun 16 2004

Tried the installer, but it didn't install (dump at the bottom).

Other things: the question if I want to run ptool, during the installation should not be there, if you want things as easy as on Windows, that is.

If things should be as easy as under Windows, you might want to make this tool for debs, or rpms. Gentoo is not the easy linux.

For the rest: yes I love it. Something that is needed pretty hard.
