NotifyAmarok (Gnome) Amarok 2.x Scripts
I did not try to use version 1.1 until I have updated to KDE 4.3 RC3 and NotifyAmarok stopped working altogether.

The interesting thing in KDE 4.3 RC3 is the developers unified the notification system, so even the notifications sent through notify-osd appear through the KDE notification system. Something in this change made NotifyAmarok 1.0 stop working, so I updated to 1.1 from the link you gave me.

The good news:
- It is working again!
- The characters with accents are no longer a problem!

The ??? news:
- The notifications appear through KNotify. This means (I think) that using the Gnome-style notifications under KDE 4.3 is out of the question. Personally, I do not have a problem with that (I'm interested in the quality of the notifications, not the format, and a unified format appeals to my sense of order), but others might have.
- Right now, NotifyAmarok and amaroKnotify looks quite similar under KDE, but your script is still a lot more configurable.

The bad news:
- The line breaks ($n) are replaced with simple white spaces.
- The album cover is not shown - the default KDE "missing" icon is shown instead. Though, if the album has no cover, the default "nocover" image IS shown! A bug, maybe? Also, the image shown is very, very small, because of the placement in the notification format.
- Instead of appearing, staying on screen for the set time, and then disappearing, the notification appears for a second, disappears, appears again for a second, disappears again, and the cycle keeps repeating for the set time.

I hope this helps. You have done a great job with this script and I long to see it perfected.
