I wanted to wait until SOHO was out of the CCD bakeout before releasing, but that won't be for about another week so all the EIT images will be in bakeout until then. Also for animations to work, you'll have to build up some frames to really see anything, I suggest using the new GOES image until SOHO is back in regular operation. Once some images are built up a left click on the applet will make it animate, check the config dialog for other options. Also, I'd like to thank admrl again for his wonderful icon. - Mar 09 2006

Just a little tip, try kdialog --icon "amarok" to make your kdialogs use the amarok icon, it makes the script look even more integrated. - Feb 23 2006

Ok, I fixed the problem with only part of the animation being shown, turns out it was downloading the wrong file.

The open and save buttons won't be available until next release along with a fix for configuration not being saved. As soon as I get to this I'll make a release, thanks again. :) - Dec 04 2005

I'm not sure what you mean about configuration saving, it should already work, could you explain in more detail.

I'm also not sure what you mean about the whole animation not being shown, a screenshot might help here. Regarding saving the animations, I already have this working as well as loading of the animations that are saved already.

Thanks for the praise and I hope to keep adding more and better features, keep the comments coming. :)

Oh and CCD bakeouts are a needed by the detectors of the SOHO sat. and it's better explained at the bottom of this page http://soho.estec.esa.nl/hotshots/2004_01_04/

Try monitoring the continuum images or some of the others as they don't need bakeouts on there detectors. - Dec 03 2005

Audioplayers by amarok 574 comments

Sounds like you are just a little disappointed in the ability of HT to pretend it is a SMP machine. My research shows HT to have stability issues all over the place, just google a little and you will see.

On a real SMP machine these issues are not present. This leads me to stay with the crowd that thinks this is a Linux kernel scheduler issue.

Remember we could have left you with no warning at all and just left you to figure out where the problem is.

I also would like to know what audio manager makes such extensive use of threads as amaroK does.

Oh, and one last thing. If you're serious about performance try a real SMP machine, multiple cpu or multiple core, not a single core pretending it's two. Another sorry attempt by Intel to try to keep a strong hold on the market by creating hype while other manufacturers pass them by with slower clock speeds imho. - Oct 29 2005

Or you could use this. http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=26850 You can install it directly from the script manager using the Get More Scripts button.

Transfer to Media Device (formerly iPod)

Amarok 1.x Scripts by madpenguin8 25 comments

While I can't support the GoGear directly, I did find this project http://opengogear.sarovar.org/ that supports the indexing of mp3's on your device. From the README it shows usage for there software. Find these lines in my script

transfer_type
else
read_config
transfer_type

and change to

transfer_type
gogear $destination/*.mp3
else
read_config
transfer_type
gogear $destination/*.mp3

Find there README here http://opengogear.sarovar.org/README

I can not say how well this software works as I don't have the hardware to test it on, good luck. - Aug 07 2005

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. - Aug 04 2005

Yes, it will copy to anywhere you choose. On first time use it asks for a destination directory to copy the files to. At any time after that you can simply click Configure in the Script Manager in amaroK to choose a new destination. - Jul 27 2005

I'll take a look into merging the two scripts I have after I get home from work :).

I have a working version for reqular USB devices, so it should be pretty easy to merge the two.

Transfer to Media Device (formerly iPod)

Amarok 1.x Scripts by madpenguin8 25 comments

Well, let's see what new things this script brings.

1) I had to add new DCOP functions to amaroK for adding files in the transfer queue, and for the actual transfer.

2) It's obvious you have never tried to transfer any files from the playlist while leaving the Context Browser open.

So in all I bring you more robust DCOP functionality to amaroK, and to top it off the script makes amaroK more useable.

With this script you no longer need to select files, open the Media Device browser, drag the files into the queue, then finally cicking transfer. This also doesn't take into account the need to click the tab for the browser you were originally at to return to where you were. Now you need only select files, and click "Transfer to" -> "iPod".

So please look again before making claims as this script is also easily extended to support uploading to regular USB mass storage devices.

I already thought of a solution, but you'll have to wait for 1.3, or pick up svn.

* New playlist column "Extension" allows easy sorting of playlist for
compatible file types for portable media players.

Also per track scripting is being worked on currently so you will be able to make scripts run against selected playlist items. Have a look. http://madpenguin8.pwsp.net/custom/multiple.jpg - May 30 2005

Audioplayers by amarok 574 comments

Your post is utterly ridiculous.

1) Package building should be maintained by your distro. We don't have the resources to build packages for every distro.

2) Maybe it's your engine that's tremendously buggy.

a) I can't say anybody would refuse a bug fix. Some bugs are more critical than others, also consider regressions.

b) What bugs? Like seb stated, minor releases are for the more important bugs.

So finally, why not offer some suggestions instead of just ranting. We have had many discussions, blogs, and forum posts regarding usability, so yes we do consider the user. Also, if you watch the developer's blogs, you'll find that feature adds for upcoming versions are discussed and are an excellent form of feedback.

And if all of these forms aren't your taste, we also have an irc channel #amarok on irc.freenode.org, we'll be waiting for your suggestions. - May 22 2005

amaroK Pod

Karamba & Superkaramba by Tinny77 5 comments

Your using the nowPlaying DCOP call and then using sed to get the track title. It might be easier just to use the title DCOP call.

Some other ideas I had, but I'm not sure if it can be done in karamba:

A volume bar graph like the iPod uses in the display. You can use the getVolume call here.

A track time progress bar, something like trackTotalTime / trackCurrentTime * 100 should give you the track progress percentage.

And last, the five star rating that the iPod has could also be implemented using the score call if you are using amaroK 1.2.

Maybe make it so the progress bars and rating displays are switchable using the center button on the iPod. Like I said I'm not sure this stuff can be done with karamba, but it would make this nice theme even better. - Jan 09 2005
