Description:

===========UPDATE=============
This is not only idea anymore, thanks to Jan Zarnikov, who wrote Amarok Fullscreen (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=52641). Thanks, man. Great job!
Implementation of this mockup can be found here:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=53231
(it's regular AmarokFS theme)

==============================

Hi!
I woke up today with idea for screen saver for Amarok.
I'm often listing music while doing some other stuff. I think most people doing this at least from time to time. Anyway, when I don't touch my computer, screen saver activates and even if I have Amarok window on my desktop I can't see which track is currently playing.
I think it would be nice to have a screen saver that display some information about current track and its album cover.
It would be also nice if it could quietly display short info about track that will be play after current one (see bottom of the screenshot).

Unfortunately I don't have programming skills necessary to write this screen saver. But I believe it should be hard to do if you use Amarok DCOP calls and ImageMagick or other graphic library (to make this cool shadow beneath the cover - see screenshot) or maybe even some OpenGL (because the "AIGLX/XGL/Compiz/KDE4" future is comming)

Some additional ideas:
1. This screen saver should be disable only by pressing specific key (for example [Esc])
2. It shouldn't react for other keys, especially for amarok shortcuts; it should be possible to change tracks/pause them etc. without leaving screen saver

If you like this and want it on your desktop, find KDE/Amarok developers who are willing to do this or just make a bugzilla entry for Amarok/vote for it.

I like the screensaver.. maybe if made small it could even be packaged with Amarok.

"I wanna free your software", Cool!
I imagine that it would be rock or maybe punk rock. It would totally rock if somebody (preferably RMS, but I don't know if he sings ;-) ) made a song like this :D

lol, not exactly MTV material. But still nice to see/hear.

I was expecting a bit more Rock, some more revolutionizing tunes. It's quite funny that it is out there though. :D

Hehe, you can hear a heavy metal cover version by Jono Bacon http://www.recreantview.org/songs/jonobacon-freesoftwaresong.ogg

and another one, inspired by the FSF song http://audio-video.gnu.org/audio/Fenster-Free-Software-Song.ogg


It is not the size of the hammer that counts. It's how you wield it.

good idea, bad place. I'd suggest to send a feature request to the amarok developers.

Unfortunatelly, I already did (through bugs.kde.org), and they told me that this isn't part of Amarok, but scripts for Amarok, and they don't take feature request for scripts, so I'm a little confused, because I really don't now where we should ask for this.

> Unfortunatelly
"unfortunately" (single L because unfortunate doesn't end in an L)

> they don't take feature request
"requests" (ends with S since it's a general concept)

> don't now
"know" (begins with K)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
