Amarok 2 Simple

   1.0  

Karamba

Amarok 2 Simple
zoom


Depends on  KDE 4.x
Downloads:  4377
Submitted:  Nov 19 2008

Description:

I'm releasing this because there's a serious lack of plasmoids for Amarok 2. My design goals were for it to be small without much wasted space, good looking, and have an emphasis on the artwork.

For the best results, please install the recommended fonts. Otherwise, it defaults to Freesans, which isn't that great looking.

 wrong file extension

if this is a plasmoid, it is packaged incorrectly. it is packaged with the superkaramba file extension. (.skz)

The file extension is fine. Plasma has the ability to run super karamba themes as plasmoids.

even though skz isn't a plasmoid it is a karamba theme
what i really like about it is that it actually works

 Link doesn't work

Secont link (Droid sans) doesn't work: "Direct linking to downloads is not permitted".

But in fact, your plasmoid looks pretty. When I switch to Amarok 2 (is there any reason to do it now? I ask seriously), I'll surely try it out.

Thanks for the heads up. I've fixed the link. As far as Amarok 2 goes, there's really no compelling reason at the moment to switch to it that outweighs the downsides. Sure, it has some cool features, but it's surprisingly buggy and feature lacking for being a 3rd beta with talks of a release candidate soon. I just got tired of Amarok being pretty much the only QT 3 application that I still use on a regular basis. It sticks out like a sore thumb, doesn't load icons unless you're using Oxygen and doesn't change colors when you change them in System Settings. I guess what I'm trying to say is they're both a pain in the butt at the moment.

Thank you for this Karamba-Plasmoid ;) ...great Look with the selected Fonts.
Can you please add some time-information (total and remaining time and/or a %-Bar) ?
I'm using Kubuntu Intrepid Ibex with Amarok-KDE4 1.9.4 (KDE 4.1.3) and there's no cover shown (neither in Amarok nor in your Plasmoid, but JuK shows all covers correctly).
I think it's a problem with Amarok, not with your Plasmoid, but do you know a solution or do I have to wait for the next version of Amarok ?

Thanks. I've uploaded another version that shows the time. As far as Amarok not showing covers. Perhaps you don't have covers associated with your music? Try running this command and posting the output:

qdbus org.kde.amarok /Player GetMetadata | grep arturl

Thousand thanks for the fast response - now it looks like I wished.
The output of the qdbus-command is empty ('arturl:') but the other metadata-strings are OK.
I normally add covers to my mp3s with Kid3 - and Amarok 1.4.10 shows them without problems.
Do I have to associate the covers in Amarok 2 in another way (...as (local) url) ?
Can you tell me how to do that ?

I'm not sure how Amarok 2 handles embedded cover art. You could try turning on the option, "Automatically retrieve cover art" under settings. It's generally pretty good at fetching the right cover.

Thanks again, now everything's working fine !
I think Amarok 2 can handle embedded covers, but you need to build up a musiccollection.
I was too lazy to do that, just wanted to listen to some tracks...
Btw: just downloaded a new version of Amarok (1.98) and maybe something's getting easier - or I must not be so stupid ;)

That's deliberate. As far as I can see, Amarok doesn't make that cover available to outside applications. I don't think it even ever gets written to disk. So the option was, display no cover at all when last.fm is playing or display a generic last.fm cover. I chose the latter. If someone has a way around that, I would love to hear it.

In amaroK 1.x the cover for last.fm streams is:

~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/lastfm_image.png

Don't know if it's the same for amaroK 2, not using that version yet. Check if the cover is located there, regards.

Thank you very much for the suggestion, but it appears that Amarok 2 doesn't save the cover there. It's almost as if the developers went out of their way to make it extra difficult for external applications to interact with it. :(

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
