thx for your reply!
ah, ok...I'm using sqlite with a lot of mp3s...maybe I should try mysql, but why does amarok block DB queries? I think that should be fixed in amarok to be async.. - Jan 24 2007
is it possible to make the script work asynchronous? because at the moment it blocks amarok when fetching tags, which makes interactions with amarok impossible.

would be nice if all that could be done async. and thx for this great script!!

hi again ;)
the script seems to crash on umlauts or apostrophe. on some songs of "Die Ärzte" it crashes with following backtrace:
GTK bindings not found

removing qtruby and using ruby-gtk fixed the problem!

thx for this great script!! - Nov 12 2006
thx for your reply!

I get this error:
$ ruby lyriki.rb -a "Green Day" -t "Reject"
Searching lyrics to 'Reject' by 'Green Day'...
Lyrics to 'Reject' by 'Green Day' found.

/usr/lib64/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/Qt/qtruby.rb:1367: [BUG] Segmentation fault
ruby 1.8.5 (2006-08-25) [x86_64-linux]


I re-emerge ruby(1.8.5) as well as qtruby(3.5.5) but it didn't help. - Nov 12 2006
could it be that the script doesn't work any more with current amarok? it stops right after starting here.

thanks! - Nov 10 2006
amaroK tags

I made some changes to fetch toptags of artists/tracks to make tagging independent of user account.

the url needed is:
url = "" + \
urllib.pathname2url( artist ) + "/" + \
urllib.pathname2url( title ) + "/toptags.xml"

if you have time, it would be cool if the script would use following algo:
1. fetch user dependent artist/title/album tags
2. fetch toptags from artist/title/album
3. compare them and remove duplicates
4. reorder them depending on their count
5. select the first 3 (configurable) user tags and the first 3 toptags

thanks a lot for your great work! - Nov 11 2006

can be found on

thx for this app!

please provide an option to remove the hints about new installed programs in the right click context menu of the menu. I don't want do disable that feature, but when I re-emerge all my kde apps, it's annoying to select every app to be treated as "not-new" again.

i hit a bug in the 4.0 release.
after starting the menu I did a search in the searchbar (kerry disabled), some results where listed and I clicked on the "clear" search button to remove the search results. Now the dropdown box isn't selectable any more (it's disabled: greyed), as I don't want to loose my favorite list, I don't want to re-add tastymenu to solve the problem. - Jul 25 2006
no crashes here too! thx a lot!!

to add favorites, click on the "bookmark" icon right beside the program description.

dominik - Jul 24 2006
isn't it possible to get the width and heigh for the bookmark icon and use that +/- a few percent tolerance?

because I think there is no need to make that width adjustable by user. my only problem was, that I clicked on the icon, but the app started instead of being added to fav.list. and clicking 10 times on the icon withouth success of adding to fav.list makes me really frustrated :) - Jul 24 2006
could it be, that tastymenu crashes only on 64bit systems? I'm running amd64 here and tastymenu is quite unstable.

btw, could you change the "magic value" 32 to 64 for adding/removing bookmarks? I tested it and think that it's more useable because with 32 the area is a bit too small.
thx! - Jul 24 2006

I always get this error and konqueror hangs and consumes a lot of memory until the error get displayed, which can take sometimes about a minute:

The desktop entry file
has an invalid menu entry

Same with "Exportto".
