Description:

This is a simple script, which resurrects a small feature from Amarok 1.4.

It adds a menu entry, which copies the current song info to the Clipboard and/or the X Selection. The format of the copied text is configurable.

Hint: you can configure a shortcut for easy access to the script by using the "Configure Shortcuts" menu item and assigning a combination for "Copy Current Song Info" (hint contributed by xdarklight)

Hi,

just wanted to say 'thanks' :)
I found your script today, and I must say: I like it

one thing I was really missing in amarok 2 was the CTRL+C shortcut so the current artist/track would've been copied into the clipboard
thanks to your script I get that back in amarok 2 (just installed your script, went to the "Configure Shortcuts" dialog and assigned "Copy Current Song Info" CTRL+C as shortcut (as simple shortcut, not the alternate one nor the global one))

Regards,
Martin

Hey Martin,

I'm very glad that you find the script useful :)

I also quite like the hint about the shortcut, it didn't occur to me that it was possible. I hope you don't mind if I include this tip in the summary.

Regards,
Stanislav

There was a bug in Amarok where shotcuts for actions created by scripts were not persistent across restarts.
See this BR: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=223165

=> This will be fixed in the Amarok release after 2.3.1 (next release is probably 2.3.2 -> there it's fixed).
