Description:

A Plasmoid Widget to see the lyrics of the current playing song.

BUILDING
tar xjvf lyricsplasmoid-0.5.tar.bz2
cd lyricsplasmoid-0.5
mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
sudo make install
kbuildsycoca4
kquitapp plasma (plasma-desktop in kde > 4.3)
plasma (plasma-desktop in kde > 4.3)

Tested it with Clementine 0.6, Juk 3.6 and Amarok 2.3.2.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For the Amarok 2.4 users there is a bug between Amarok 2.4 and the nowplaying DataEngine (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=263642). The plasmoid works (but no the cover art because that is the problem) but sometimes the nowplaying DataEngine starts to show annoying notifications when you use amarok as you source player. Only in Amarok 2.4!

I wanted to use lyricsplasmoid with tomahawk player, but lyrics.wikia.com didn't worked for me. Therefor I changed some things in the sourcefile "lyrics_sources.h" and compiled it as described in the "README" file. But before I had to uninstall the older version completely.
The changes in "lyrics_sources.h" I made are firstly in line 41:

extract_patterns.append(QPair< QString, QString> ("<div class='lyricbox'>", "</div>"));

and secondly I commented out lines 60 to 126 (this will uninstall the other services than lyrics.wikia.com).

After this follow the install instructions in README and logout and login in KDE. I hope anyone having the same problems can help this.


Kind regards!

confirmed Players option doesn't work.

Please add support for auto scrolling, like amarok lyrics plug-in

is there any posible solution of this?

Thanks for your help

...but sadly, this seems to only work with Amarok's default lyrics script, which is sorely lacking. It'd be great if the widget just grabbed whatever is shown in Amarok's Lyrics applet, that way you wouldn't have to worry about maintaining compatibility with all the different lyrics scripts out there.
