Amarok Full Screen

Audioplayers

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on opencode.net

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/

How to apply?

Download the patch and open konsole (or another terminal emulator), than change into the directory with the source code. When you are there, execute the following command:

patch -p1 -i /path/to/the/patch

If you want, you can run this at first with the option --dry-run to test if the patch would be applied correctly.

patch -p1 -i /path/to/the/patch --dry-run

Hi,
Great app! I created a little Amarok startup script for this, so that AmarokFS can be started from Amarok itself. Check it out at:

This looks like a great app but it seems that it doesn't work on Dapper. I installed the Ubuntu package without any complaints but when I runt eh application I get:

arthur@ares:~/apps$ amarokFS
amarokFS: /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by amarokFS)

Thank you for any help you can provide.

There's a sort of bug when you play a file with a cover you changed in Amarok with "set custom cover" it does not show it, instead it shows the default one.
Sometimes Amarok does not recognize the right front cover, so there's a need to change that.
Thank's for this extension.

some suggestion...
This is a very great app. You should make some improvements like:
Clickable progress bar to choose at the exact piece of the song you want to listen;
Play, stop, etc... would be great if by going on with the cursor, to be highlighted or getting magnify effects like MAC OS X taskbar...

NICE APP! THANK YOU!

This is great, but i have a problem with reflection if i change the background color. I want to use a different background color than black, but if i do that, the reflection of amarok logo have black backgorund. Is possible to change that?

sorry, but this is not possible. the reflection effect is made by an ugly hack. i have to rewrite the code to make it more flexible. i already have some ideas how to do this. be patient :-)

Hey, I think if you edit the gradient.png file in the images folder you should be able to get your color. I'd say just fire up the gimp and make a new one to match your desired color. Just a thought, I haven't tried it myself.

Hi,

this seems to be a great application, however using a hardcoded installation path is really unhandy.

Using a standard configure script would simplify installation and creation of packages greatly.

Regards, David

i know about this problem and i'm working on it. unfortunately qt-programs and the standart automake and autoconf tools (which provide the "./configure") don't work very well together. this is the reason why i'm using qmake to generate the makefile.

please don't forget, that this project is just one week old!

Geat job!
Really great.
A pair of wishes:
- it could be great to display additional infos like lyrics, rating like ipod gui (maybe clicking on image it shows in his place lyrics, clicking another time rating, ecc.)
- maybe it could be used as anti-geekin' screensaver if there weren't controls like play, stop, ecc.
- a simple cool feature could be to show next track

Thank you for your job, amarok full screen is a very-cool app.

Would be great to have the song's lyrics displayed in the corner of amarokFS, aswel as a light background(configurable)

Great app btw!

I am really enjoying your script. I would genuinely like to see if appear in Amarok as a feature. I think I might even try my hand at a skin ;)

What do you think about being able to access songs from this view in some manner, be it via playlist or library? I think that the mouse rollover functionality would be useful for something of that nature to reduce clutter. Adding a feature like that would be awesome for parties. Imagine only allowing people to access this screen and a preferred playlist or the entire library. I think there are a lot of possibilities here that can be explored.

I've created a amd64 (k)Ubuntu package, you can download it from here:
http://phinnfort.phil0d0x.com/amarokfs-qt3_0.4.2-1_amd64.deb

Also, I would like to request it to be started with "-setup" to just run the configure dialog, "-window #" or something similar to run in another window, and with "-root" to run in the root window. This way, it can be easily used as a screensaver.

I also tried my hands at hacking it to work as a screensaver, please look at the following file: http://phinnfort.phil0d0x.com/amarokFS.desktop
(It's supposed to be put in ~/.kde/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers, and then everything should work, but when I click "test" here, it doesn't do anything).

Thanks for a very nice program, btw;)

... as a screensaver.

PC is unused -> show screen of currently-playing song

Hi,

I don't fully agree.
It would be a great screensaver but I also like the idea to have it as an app you decide to launch.

Moreover, screensaver will not work if you don't run amarok.

But maybe someone will do it, and maybe add a "screensaver to launch if amarok is not running" ;)
Would be great :D

That feature exists! It is an Amarok script. It is called KoverSS (KoverScreenSaver)

check it out!

How could I:
1) add quotes before and after Title?
(Song Title -> "Song Title")
2) add "by" before Artist?
3) add "from" before Album?
