Thanks, very useful!
But when mdp client hangs (or can't read data from internet and long time don't answer to plasmoid), this plasmoid locks all plasma interface.
Can you fix this problem?

I'm here, but I don't know what happens. This error may arise from the fact that package "plasma-scriptengine-python" not installed. Or MPD not installed or configured correctly.

Thanks for writing this little gem, really enjoy using it. A problem/bug I have noticed that has been quite annoying though is that every time the server running mpd is not available (off) and I turn on the client laptop on, I get the dreaded plasmoid error red cross with accompanying message something like "error running script" instead of the nice control buttons you intended. It works again if I close and reopen the plasmoid after turning on the server however. This bug reliably happens every time the server is off.

As a workaround you may run mpd with system. By startup scripts.

Hi Again

will the next version include the ability to have the song name/artist and cover alongside (or instead of) the buttons so one could see the song info on the taskbar?

thx again for this awesome plasmoid!

I've just tried this applet and i like it a lot.

The problem is the art is not shown.
I have the album art image in the same folder as the audio files, named AlbumArt.jpg, but still doesn't show. Do I need to do anything else?

Thanks in advance

Unfortunately, now plasmoid take covers from ~/.covers directory (sonata save covers in this folder). But I'm working on this problem, in next version everything will be fine =)

hi grozotkh

thx for the update!

a while back i requested the song info (name,album,artist) to be added next to the buttons. you mentioned you added them but i cant see how. what i meant is having the song info constantly present on the taskbar (next to the buttons) and not just as a pop up when the song changes

is that possible?

thx alot again for this awesome plasmoid!

Well...it seems that it is not fixed. I've just installed it, but still receive the same message.

Is this plasmoid can work ONLY with mpd server on localhost, or it is possible to handle remote servers, too?

I'm looking for the second option

I don't tested work on remote servers. In settings you may set "host" and "port", but option "user/pass" I'll add in future releases

У меня подобная проблема, на локальной машине не стоит mpd, а плазмоид при запуске сразу пытается подключиться к серверу который прописан по умолчанию, и вылетает с ошибкой. Отредактировал на нужный сервер, всё заработало, но хотелось бы иметь возможность редактирования настроек даже если клиент не подключился к серверу, это же логично. версия плазмоида 0.4
