REQUIRES: html2text: http://userpage.fu-berlin.de/~mbayer/tools/html2text.html Requires SVN version with a revision >=439781 (When dcop call was committed) PLEASE GIVE FEEDBACK! Whats good? Whats bad? What should I add? Thanks to madpenguin8 for the assistance in scripting this.

I use Ubuntu, do I have to install the python-dcop package?
If I try to install that package, it conflicts with the python2.4-sip4-qt3 package, which is needed by python-qt3

I downloaded this script, and when I install it it sais "Lyrics Viewer Loaded"

By checking the lyricviewer.sh file I noticed this:

If I excecute this command on the shell:

$dcop amarok playlist shortStatusMessage "Lyrics Viewer Loaded"

I can see "Lyrics Viewer Loaded" in amarok status bar

However, if I type this command:

$dcop amarok script addCustomMenuItem "Lyrics" "view"

I get 'object not accessible'

I'll appreciate any help, your script seems great, but I can't make it work

Also, could you please make the script try to show the lyrics in the USLT/TEXT ID3 first of fetching them from the internet or from the cache?

You need amaroK 1.3beta3 or svn, It appears you are running a 1.2 version of amaroK. You do not need python anything for this script, only bash and html2text.
