Kembru for Amarok 2

Karamba & Superkaramba by Znurre 7 comments

I've got a plasmoid that I wrote for Amarok 2, and this is how I display the cover art. My plasmoid is always displaying a no cover blank cd, and if the album you're listening to has album art it displays on top of that, hiding it. If you're listening to last.fm, it displays a generic last.fm cover. It also doesn't depend on any absolute paths since it gets all paths directly from Amarok. Hope this helps.

I'm glad it meets your approval. :) Oxygen Refit 2 Black is about the only icon theme I use. I change up the folder icons every once in a while, but that's about it. Thanks for making it. - Nov 15 2008

Hi gust5av. The icons are Oxygen-Refit 2 - Black Version. I've just replaced the folder icons. I wish I could say who created them, but all I can find is a rapidshare link.

I'm not quite sure what constitutes a valid dekorator theme, but you can just untar and set the paths for deco, buttons, and masks manually. - Oct 30 2008

Thanks for the comment. The maps and compass are just images I found on google image search. They're actually plasmoids on my desktop. The maps just look pretty, but clicking on the compass brings up my menu. I have created a version of the wallpaper with those on it. It's available here:

Hi 1945ii. The icon theme is just the [url=http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Oxygen+Refit+Black?content=89298]Oxygen Refit Black[/url] theme with different folder icons. The folder icons are available [url=http://delta909.deviantart.com/art/Aquave-Aluminum-92420873]here.[/url]

I have a little script that will replace all the folder icons in a theme at once.

Quote:
#!/bin/bash
convert -geometry 128x128 -sharpen 0x.4 $1 ./128x128/places/$2
convert -geometry 64x64 -sharpen 0x.4 $1 ./64x64/places/$2
convert -geometry 48x48 -sharpen 0x.4 $1 ./48x48/places/$2
convert -geometry 32x32 -sharpen 0x.4 $1 ./32x32/places/$2
convert -geometry 22x22 -sharpen 0x.4 $1 ./22x22/places/$2
convert -geometry 16x16 -sharpen 0x.4 $1 ./16x16/places/$2
exit 0

Install Oxygen Refit Black and create a text file in the directory ~/.kde4/share/icons/OxygenRefit2-black-version . (Note that this may be under your ~/.kde directory.) Save it as places and make it executable. Drop Generic.png from Aquave Aluminum in the same directory and run the script like this: ./places Generic.png folder.png

I hope this is clear enough. Let me know if you have any trouble. - Sep 21 2008

Linuxgirl13 offers sound advice. You probably won't have too many problems installing it in KDE 3. There will be some icons that don't work, I'm sure. Most of the important ones should work, though. You can either recompress as a tar.gz file and install with kcontrol or just extract the package to your ~/.kde/share/icons/ directory. - Sep 20 2008

I wouldn't go redistributing that image. It's just something I found on Google images. I had come across that icon set before. I've even included a few icons from it. Thanks for the heads up though. - Sep 06 2008

The clock is just a picture of a pocket watch with the analog clock plasmoid from kde 4 laid over the top. Here's a link to the picture:

Thanks for the fast reply. That works perfectly. I had actually come across that xml file earlier. My mistake was in trying to use dbus-send instead of qdbus. The syntax isn't quite the same and it doesn't seem to produce any error output if you're at least in the ballpark. Thanks again! - Sep 05 2008

Is there a way to show the menu without using the plasmoid? I assume there's probably some way to do it with dbus but I can't figure it out. I'm trying to make a launcher for cairo dock. Thanks for writing lancelot. - Sep 04 2008

This seemed to fix my problem. I had to change this line in plasma-wifi-signal.cpp:

m_signal_strength = parts[3].left(parts[3].size() - 1).toInt();

To this:

m_signal_strength = parts[3].left(parts[3].size()).toInt(); - Aug 17 2008

This works when placed in the theme file:

Replace this:
dcop amarok player album

With this:
if [ `dcop amarok player album | wc -c` -lt 36 ]; then echo `dcop amarok player album`; else echo `dcop amarok player album | cut -c -32`...; fi - Aug 17 2008

Good job on the theme. Just one nitpick. The text has a tendency to run over the edges of the theme depending on what plasma theme you are using. Even using the oxygen theme it seems to butt right up against the edge. Is there a way to correct this? - Aug 15 2008

Just one problem. If an album title or artist name or song title is too long, it runs off the side of the plasmoid. I managed to cut these down and add an elipsis if the data is too long, but I had to write a script and call it from the theme file. It's only one line of bash script, but I couldn't get it to work right if I put it directly in the .theme. Anyway, here it is. Hopefully you can incorporate it.
