Description:

Displays current song, artist, album cover and current/total song time
Has previous, play/pause, stop and next button for controling Amarok player

I must admit that this screenlet isn't so much useful because of amarok shortcut keys(super+z x c v b)... but maybe someone needs it...

TODO: needs more look improving

if someone has idea to add new or improve it's funcionalities please let me know... :)

fell free to create and send me themes ;)

Not good, this screenlet uses way too much CPU, occasionally it burst up to 40%

I can't get this to work. I download, open manager, install new screenlet, select it, add screenlet...nothing happens.

Terminal returns:
AttributeError: 'AmarokControlScreenlet' object has no attribute 'draw_scaled_image'

Any help?

could you please send me whole output of terminal... start screenlet using this command

python /path_to_screenlet/AmarokControlScreenlet.py

or maybe you need just to delete its config files... (try this first)
they are located in ~/.config/Screenlets
delete everything in this folder with name AmarokControl

I had the screenlet completely removed so there were no files there. It might be worth mentioning I am rubbing Hardy. I don't know if that might be affecting it.

Thanks for making this. This was the exact screenlet I needed.

I've been using "Now Playing" with Amarok, but I wanted something more simple, that does not display as much info. I use Sidebar, so there isn't much horizontal room for each screenlet.

This screenlet brings the necessary functions and gets the job done. Wishes? well, themes would be nice. :-D

1. The new version of the screenlet does not work. It does not run. The old one ran fine. The only thing is, the screenlet manager does not recognize it as a screenlet in either version. (installed by putting in ~/.screenlets)

2. When you get everything straitened out, it would be cool if you would allow custom sizes. I mean like if i want it to be width 300 and height 50. Technically this should work. I tried to edit the code, but i dont know python and i broke it ;), so i will leave it to you.

If these two things get straightened out, i can assure you i will use this screenlet :)

this with manager is fixed... screenlet should work, if not work delete it's config files from ~/.config/Screenlets
if still not work run it from terminal and paste terminal output here

Installed great :)

Please allow custom sizes for width and height, and custom text sizes.
You do this, and you are my hero :D

if I make settings for screenlet size then I can't use background, glass and other images but I could make settings for text position and colors...

Why don't you build on the NowPlaying screenlet instead ? It's got an existing themeing support as well.

I don't like so much now playing... and it's much easier to make it from begining... so I made it just to practise python (because i am beginer in python) ;)
