Description:

IF YOU USE PREVIOUS VERSION OF SCRIPT SEE CHANGELOG

Since in Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty new notify daemon for gnome is provided, I wanted to make the Amarok 1.4 osd better fit my desktop appear. Despite poor pynotify documentation, I undertook and completed (however, not entirely) quest for the Amarok Notify-osd script.

Script wrote in python.

TODO
- Volume change shown with a gauge, rather than with a number (not sure if even posibble with pynotify)
- Assinging a global key combination, to cast osd at any time (again, not sure if possible)
- Configurable syntax of text shown on an osd bubble.


Although Amarok 1.4 is not available in Jaunty, you can install it by adding these two lines to the repository list
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bogdanb/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/bogdanb/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

IMPORTANT!
Removing or upgrading the script will cause removing ALL user-installed scripts. In order to remove the script in a safe way
run:

rm -i ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/osd.py ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/osd.spec

or remove these files manually with your file manager, then restart amarok

- fixed the issue above
- tried fixing possible reason of gnome-settings-daemon, too little time to test if this helped, due to the urget need to repair the previous issue

This script is really useful and it integrates well with Ubuntu 9.10.

However, small request: would it be possible to remove the bold "Amarok" and instead change the bold text on the top line to the title of the song.

It isn't really necessary to be reminded, in bold letters, that the information relates to the amarok music player (at least in my opinion). Perhaps there should be a configuration option?

Anyway thanks for the useful script.
