Amarok Full Screen

Description:

UPDATE: as more people get involved into this project, it needs some organisation and version management. A sourceforge project should be opened soon.

This is a full screen front end for Amarok. The look can be changed by custom THEMES.

INSTALL:
to build from source, you need Qt3 development files (IT WILL NOT WORK WITH QT4!!), kde development files (dcopclient.h) and the g++ compiler. Just run "make" to compile the program. If it doesn't work, try running "qmake" (or "qmake-qt3") first and then "make".
For installation run "make install" (requires root priviliges)
To run the program just run "amarokFS". An entry in the start-menu should also be created (may depend on distro, tested on ubuntu).

You can find openSuse 10.2 rpm-packages on http://ftp.huessenbergnetz.de/pub/paketdepots/suse/openSUSE_10.2/
(many thanks to Buschmann)

at this moment i made the progressbar updating every second instead not only if the percentage of the advanced song changed.

http://www.mathematik.uni-marburg.de/~kossler/amarokFS/patches/smootherprogressbar.patch

together with a little fix to my theme I released another version of my ubuntu packages (small patches all along but i have not the experience in c++ to work on bigger issues)

Hi,
Firstly, great work on the Ubuntu package! I like your patches, and am planning to include some of them in the next Fedora package as well (acknowledging you, of course :-) ).

However, I see we are duplicating some of the efforts here (e.g. the "large cd cover"-fix); care to work together? All the sources (including the patches) for the Fedora package can be downloaded from:
http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/viewcvs/rpms/amarokFS/devel/?root=extras

Also, if there is something you would like to add to/modify in the program and would like some help, feel free to mail me:
faucamp ..AT.. fedoraproject ..DOT.. org

Cheers,
-Francois

Thanks for your config dialog layout patch, i added it to another version of my package.

I agree with you that we should work together. But we shouldnt commit too big changes without a comment from comar.

Issues i would like to work about are:
- Disabling of screensaver should although work for other DMs (especially gnome)
- amarokFS itself should be (or be able to start as) a xscreensaver-hack, but I were not able to figure out how to do this (as far as I understand the qt things it should be possible to create a screensaver which simply uses the AmfsXML-Widget and doesnt quit on mouse moves - when amarok doesnt play it should start an other screensaver)
- a label should automatically change the font size if its content doesnt fit

This package is now in the Fedora repositories, bundled with an Amarok integration script (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=53125)

So if you are a Fedora user, simply do:

yum install amarokFS

to get the application. Alternatively, you can download the RPM directly from:
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/6/i386/repodata/repoview/amarokFS-0-0.4.2-4.fc6.html

comar961, we have furthermore created several patches for amarokFS to fix some minor issues and add a few needed features (these are part of the Fedora package). Could we mail these patches to you so that you can take a look at them and possibly include them in the next release, so that everyone may benefit from them?

Thank you for this great application.

Just as a clarification; the Fedora patches can be downloaded using cvs (see http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/extras.shtml for an explanation), or via HTTP from:

Great work!! :)

Suggestion: why don't you add moodbar support? I think it's very interesting. You could support it instead of the progress bar (and your program would be almost perfect) ;)

Regards!

I encountered the problem that my cover image were fuzzy, because the size of my cover-preview is set to 150px (not 100)

So I patched the source so that it will display the correct cover with all sizes.

A lock screen feature would be nice to protect the rest of the desktop while amarokFS is running. Would be nice on parties.

I habe written a little patch that adds the ability to disable the Amarok OSD. You can define the behaviour in the configuration dialogue. Analogical to disabling the screensaver you must restart amarokFS before it takes effect.

You can find the patch here:
http://ftp.huessenbergnetz.de/pub/patches/amarokFS-0.4.2-AddDisableAmarokOSD.patch

Patched packages for openSUSE 10.2 can be found here:

Please add an option to disable the OSD while AmarokFS is running. The DCOP call is:

disable: amarok player enableOSD 0
enable: amarok player enableOSD 1

Thank you!

In your screenshot there's a half transparent gradient below the cover. What am I missing? It isn't transparent at all here.

I got it - you have hardcoded /usr/share/amarokFS/images/ as path for the gradient.png in amfs-xml.cpp... and I only changed the Makefile to use /usr instead. Now it works.

Boy - I should read before I save... I meant /usr/local/share... which is hardcoded. Should search for my glasses...

Is it possible somehow to set a custom wallpaper or use the one automatically that's used for the desktop?

Report

What I miss is the option to rate songs (stars) while in fullscreen. And maybe something that's moving to the music.

How about adding a configure file? Some users prefer /usr or /opt/kde3 instead of /usr/local.

If you have problems with displaying the cover image, try this patch:

http://ftp.huessenbergnetz.de/pub/patches/amarokFS-0.4.2-FixMountPointIdQuery.patch

It fixes a error in a sql subquery for the mount point id. If the sql cover path contains more than one result, the subquery for the mount id fails.

Here you can find patched packages for openSUSE 10.2
