Description:

Smart DJ lets you find tracks based on how similar they sound to each other. It can also automatically add new tracks to your playlist based on how similar they are to what you've been listening to.

In addition to PyQt, this requires songanalysis (0.4.0 or higher), python-commandsplus, python-extattr, python-Observable and python-amarok (these last two are new dependencies) which can be found at

http://rudd-o.com/projects/

(the RPM packages have been linked here for your convenience, and will work if you have Fedora Core 4; the source packages are available at the aforementioned URL, and packages for other distributions may be found in the comments section of this page, thanks to very thoughtful and considerate individuals).

Songanalysis requires the GNU Scientific Library (package named libgsl or gsl, depending on your operating system), mpg321 (package mpg321) and ogg123 (package vorbis-tools).

The sources are in the aforementioned Web address. There are no Debian packages yet, but I'm sure some diligent soul will prepare some for me to post there. I was using python 2.4 but I guess 2.3 will do fine.

I'm uncomfortable using any app or plugin from someone who has such a poor attitude toward following the same rules all of us do.

I'll pass on this one.

Next time you want to issue a comment like the one you did, pretty please think that some of us are using the Internet on a paid-by-the-minute Cyber-Café in a Third World country, and we do this for free. So we're paying MONEY to do something nice for you. Any other senses of entitlement you'd like me to respond to?

Well then, what about people that are on dial-up and find your app on this site without any information about what it does? Do you think they will be interested to download your app and all it's dependancies before knowing what it does? Also, this site (kde-apps.org) is a voluntary site, being run by an individual investing his/her personal time and money in storage space, bandwidth and maintenance. All they ask for it is that the stuff people put on this site is accompanied by a little description and possibly some typical screenshots, to make the use of this site and the finding of a useful app easier. Don't you think that's fair? Now let's stop arguing about this, the description and screenshots are there, so let's talk about the app, shall we?

What about the poor people who are on dialup? Honestly asking that? Well, they could download the script (less than one minute) and open it with their favorite archiver, then read the README.

The fact that I made an "incomplete" release (short on time, no shots available) does not give anyone entitlement to criticize the software on the basis of non-available information instead of its actual performance.

Most probably the people who voted it down never ever wrote a single app themselves, so they can't assign value to high-quality software development work.

What about the poor people who are on dialup? Honestly asking that? Well, they could download the script (less than one minute) and open it with their favorite archiver, then read the README. Yes, they could. But will they actually do that? Personally, I'd lose interest pretty quickly and move on to something else that's clear about what it does on first sight. Also, in less then one minute it's possible to write a short description. So what's the big deal? The fact that I made an "incomplete" release (short on time, no shots available) does not give anyone entitlement to criticize the software on the basis of non-available information instead of its actual performance. Actually, you just experienced that it does. You may not like it, but that's how things seem to work. If you want people to try out (and possibly like) your software, you need to provide it in such a way that means the least amount of hassle for the user. If you don't, you should at least accept that there will be people asking for additional information about the software over and over again..

This is a perfect example of what I mean. Do you honestly think you're the only one doing something for free? We all are but none the less, we follow the rules and are courteous to each other. As for internet connections, we all pay for them in one way or another.

As for the 3rd world thing, the whole world has become a 3rd world. We are all in the same ocean, just on different boats.

I'll not respond to any more of your comments. Good luck in the future.

Okay, all you spoiled crybabies with always-on Internet connections. You've got your description and screen shots. Now, I hope you rate the application UP exactly the same way you rated it DOWN without even trying it first. And please understand that the purpose of the Rating control is to vote BAD APPS down, instead of voting apps you haven't even tried down.

Um, I agree that screenshots aren't really necessary, but you must see that with no description we can't even know if we are interested in the script or not, or what to do with it.

I definitely agree with you. What I don't agree upon is people voting down my app without even trying it. That's not what the voting/rating control is intended for.

Beside the qualtiy of the plugin everything running into this "description" will probably not follow any link and open some text file. I usually do not because most good software has a some information here. That's the attempt of kde-apps, to provide rating and description of the applications. Sorry, better delete this entry.

if you would have looked a bit further, you could have been stumbled upon this: http://www.usm.edu.ec/~amadorm/amarok/Cartas open it with whatever text-editor you have and be happy :) (tho i agree that i don't try this script as long as there are no screenshots or a good description on this page

Its common courtesy to give a description and common sense not to download something blindly.

It doesn't take a great deal of effort to add a description and screenshot.

Thank you in advance.
