Since markey likes to keep us guessing, this script won't work on newer versions of amaroK (unless something has changed again :P). Line 171 needs to be changed to:
song = popen("dcop amarok player coverImage").read()[0:-1]

Basically, change playlist to player.

Its a cool script. Don't listen to them, Karamba folks can write Karamba scripts, this is better as it is. I didn't even know you could do this.

An idea would be to use a QSocketNotifier rather then QTimer to query for updates. You can see the ruby template or Uplisting for a ruby version of this.

The script is incorrectly packaged for the amaroK install script thing to work. The correct format is described at the end of:

You edit the configuration with the GUI. Just click 'configure' in the amaroK script manager. I will add instructions on how to install it, given that this is the first amaroK script on kde-apps. - Jan 26 2005

I was looking at http://www.adler-solutions.de/amarok_icon_contest/ I again remembered how I did like the original icon more. I don't see the point of the centering the moon. - Jan 10 2005

I'm not really sure how I feel about gradients. There are certainly people who don't like them though, check out the amaroK forum at amarok.kde.org in regards to the OSD. - Dec 31 2004

Are you saying wolfs howls aren't musical enough? They would be offended by that, I'm sure. - Dec 31 2004
The wolf is howling. The issue is that most of the obvious clich├ęs for music players have already been used, in form or another.

And it certainly states its purpose better then Kaffeine's icon... heh.

I'd assume folks that can't figure out that amaroK is a KDE program probably don't care one way or another. - Dec 21 2004

Looks crystalish enough to me, I doubt the amaroK devs are going to be that picky about crystal.

However, it is just a speaker. Kind of plain. - Dec 16 2004

I like it, its subtle. 18 seconds seems a little long though.

Its in the MP3 format, some distros like Redhat strip MP3 out due to patent issues. - Nov 10 2004

ironically, according to amaroK's CVS changelog, amaroK now has video support when using NMM, if I read it correctly. - Oct 31 2004
Actually, I replied too soon. Since 10/23 its in Gentoo portage http://packages.gentoo.org/search/?sstring=codeine
So not really necesary to link to bug report anymore. You could instead direct people to do an `emerge codeine` - Oct 26 2004

I agree. Though its not because Bush is an idiot. NASA has always been wasting money on its low-science-for-the-buck human space program. The ISS is not much more then a money sink.

A manned mission to Mars is a good idea I think, but its not going to happen soon with the ISS taking all the money.

Cool background. I hope color pictures of the rings come out soon. - Jul 04 2004

Sounds like another feature to me. I've never seen anyone else with their covers organized in that manner. Maybe you could write a script to copy or make symlinks to the covers in the actual album directory. That's where amaroK looks, though I'm not 100% sure how it works. - Jul 02 2004

Well, you don't know if you don't ask.

Sounds like you need to setup CVS - then you can work on the same source without having to worry about having to send in a patch every few hours.

The fact of the matter is, for us users, its annoying having two versions. - Apr 22 2003
