This theme is very nice, but I have a serious performance issue when Amarok is stopped and the playlist is displayed.
Depending on the length of the playlist CPU usage can go as high as 100% on my C2D. Maybe the polling could be slowed down or improved a bit ;-)

Hi, i've modified a little this karamba theme by adding volume control with mouse scroll, it works very fine. I don't know if i can upload this update by myself or keeping this as original iAmarokPod 1.8 maybe ... i prefer the original autor upload as a new version to keep the name or something (i just added a few lines, nothing from the other world or else) ...

if someone want it mail me at damorales arroba gmail dot com ....

i will wait for the autor's mail to send him the theme updated.

greetings !!!!

I tried it both with SuSE Linux 9.1 & 9.3, but it doesn't show up.

What's the need for pyXML to launch it?

Please help!

Hi,
I have this theme up and running like it very much. However, I cannot get anything in the display to show up. What maybe wrong?

I like the way you have combined the amaroK logo with the iPod look, I wouldn't have thought it could be done without looking a bit juxtaposed, but in this the two looks look fine together.

is there a away to support non english songs names like kovidgoyal had done with skopete:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=32677

and is there any way to see the list again without using the the amarok stop button?

all in all very nice job, allready in use:)

Hi,

I'm not sure I understand your hope. Do you mean the need to support letters like é or à, etc ? Because on my desktop there is no problem with them.

For the playlist, I'm searching a more intelligent way to use the "Menu" button like switching between multiple modes.

Ideas are welcome.

well a picture is better then 1000 words: http://www.cheetux.org.il/~motyr/snapshot3.png

note how skopete handles my hebrew contacts names,and how amarok displays it.
