Why not download the packages from i.e. any Ubuntu mirror?

http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/all/kde-icons-oxygen/download

You will get a .deb file. If this source (http://www.fileinfo.com/extension/deb) is right, then 7zip is able to open the file under Windows. - Jun 03 2009
Cover Fetcher (for AmaroK 1.4)

Amarok 1.x Scripts by evod 28 comments

last.fm works, but the query format must be:
<Artist> - <Album>

discogs.com works - again - since a few days ago they broke my script with a small change in their XML response. - Feb 09 2009

The window won't close if you click save. Press Escape or Alt+F4.

The cover will just be copied to the folder where the album resides, Amarok will notice this only if you activate 'Watch folders for changes' in your Collection options. - Aug 04 2008

First of all thanks for being fond of my script!

I'm thinking about how to design your proposed feature. Of course there can only be one cover.jpg and how to integrate this into the GUI without cluttering it..

I think of buttons with a functionality like 'Set as Front Cover' and 'Set as Back Cover' where the filenaming can be configured..

If you already have a specific idea on how to realize this or how you would like it just tell me :)


By the way: The use of copycover is not necessary, copycover is used to copy covers from the Amarok cache folder in your home directory to the folder where the album resides. My script copies the cover directly into the folder where the audio files are located, Amarok later finds out about this and copies it into the its cache folder. - Jul 29 2008

Hi!
Thanks for the hint, since I am no user of last.fm yet it didn't occur to me to use this as a cover source. I may integrate it in the future, but I'm not sure if there is a real benefit. Are there releases that are featured on last.fm and not on discogs.com? Discogs primarily featured electronic music but have opened up since then.. so could you give me some specific examples where last.fm would be required? (For motivational purposes :) - Jul 08 2008

How do you close the window? If you close it through pressing the escape button then the script won't work anymore. I will fix this in the next release.

If you didn't press escape then please look at the debug output for errors and post them here. - Jun 27 2008

I would love to make the script work like this, but since this is a script (not a plugin) I can only work with the playlist window (add context menu entries there) and dcop calls (only allows retrieving meta information for currently playing song).

So your two wishes are mine as well, but unfortunately I can't realize them in a script. - Jun 27 2008

A python class definition looks like this (# = whitespace)

class name[(expr[,expr]*)]:
####suite

try it with:

class Releases:
####...

I'm just wondering why it works on my system. Since you have several versions of Python installed the question is which one is used for executing the amarok script.. - Jun 25 2008

Which version of Python are you using? I developed this script using Python 2.5.2 (Kubuntu 8.04)

It seems strange that there is a syntax error, maybe you should try to replace the line
Releases ():
with
Releases():

(and the same for DiscogsDataFetcher) - Jun 24 2008
