Amarok Full Screen

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on opencode.net

Available as/for: -
Description:

UPDATE: as more people get involved into this project, it needs some organisation and version management. A sourceforge project should be opened soon.

This is a full screen front end for Amarok. The look can be changed by custom THEMES.

INSTALL:
to build from source, you need Qt3 development files (IT WILL NOT WORK WITH QT4!!), kde development files (dcopclient.h) and the g++ compiler. Just run "make" to compile the program. If it doesn't work, try running "qmake" (or "qmake-qt3") first and then "make".
For installation run "make install" (requires root priviliges)
To run the program just run "amarokFS". An entry in the start-menu should also be created (may depend on distro, tested on ubuntu).

You can find openSuse 10.2 rpm-packages on http://ftp.huessenbergnetz.de/pub/paketdepots/suse/openSUSE_10.2/
(many thanks to Buschmann)

Hi,
I d/l the tarball and was going to prepare a .deb for my system locally when I saw that the main directory had already been debianized. Can you post a clean source that hasn't been debianized? Cheers.

I used AmarokFS on Fedora without problems. Last week I switched to Kubuntu and wasn't able to install it.
Why don't provide .deb for amd64? It could be useful for all the kubuntu 64 users and if the packages were well mantained would be easy for everyone to install and use this beautiful app.

I found out a repo for easy installation of amarokfs (http://www.mathematik.uni-marburg.de/~kossler/amarokFS/)but unfortunately the amd64 .deb are missing even there.
Can anyone make a package for users like me and send it to the manteiners of that repo?
I'm not so able to do that...

Hi,

i am using Etch and tried to compile for Debian. After hours i got amarok FS running but with crash on reload and without cover. I applied the patches but it does not help.

Maybe you can make a debian etch package for proper installation.

Thanks in advance.

I like AmarokFS. Great work.

Now this is a really nice app, however, there are problems with long song, artist or album names. If one of those is long enough to extend it to a second line, part of it is cut off, and everything that goes beyond even a second line does not appear at all.
You can find an example of that here:

The album name is, in actuality, more than double the length of what is displayed here.

If it's not just happening for me, it would be great if that could be fixed, because I have a lot of those slightly longer details.

Something I find cool with Kirocker is that it reduce the font size if there is not enough space, so descriptions are always one line:

Is it possible to have an issue with touchscreen. In my idea : use my finger to change songs & albums with AmarokFS. Woot ! It could be incredible... if its possible to make a search box or a cover display ( like coverflow without 3D effects ) ? Last but not least, is it possible to show album tracklist ?

Is there a guide to make theme or try to develop this kind of feature ?

What do you think about that, and touchscreen ?

Hi,

That's a great work, thank you for that,
But...
The 0.5 version always crash one second after start, but only if amarok is running...
older version (0.4.2) works perfectly.

Hi there,

Like your creatiion of this. Having one problem though:

I'm using OpenSuSE 10.2, and I've just installed amarokFS. The thing is, I can't seem to view the cover art of the song that is being played.

The covers are embedded into the song file, and they are viewable on Amarok itself. How can I solve this problem?

Please help!

Thanks!

It think it would be great if this small program will act like screensaver when amarok is running

It is idea about active screensavers in KDE4 brainstorm:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Informative+Screensaver+(mockup)?content=33176

I think this program can be one of the best such screensavers

is it a good idea to hide the cursor when providing buttons to control playback? i always right click to see the cursor again...
i think this should be redone or at least be optional.
besides from that: really nice work. i use it all the time.

The mouse should show up if you move the cursor like you would when pointing to the control-buttons...so in my opinion it does need no option to turn it off...perhaps we should discuss this on Sf but unfortunatly i don't see any activity there...

change the function and you can use the command close for an exit button.

void AmfsXML::controlButtonClicked(QCString command) {
if (command == "close") {
close();
}
else {
sendPlayerCommand(command);
}
}

i was getting no covers displayed, so after applying this patch mentioned before

http://ftp.huessenbergnetz.de/pub/patches/amarokFS-0.5-FixMountPointIdQuery.patch

the back cover was displayed, so changing line 706 of amarokfs.cpp from
QString coverPathSQLMedia = coverPath.last();
to
QString coverPathSQLMedia = ((coverPath.grep("front").count() > 0) ? coverPath.grep("front") : coverPath) .last();

the front cover is selected if found (doesnt work well thou if the path includes front)

so i guess you should add to your todo list something like priorities for covers according to file names..

thx for the whole package thou!!

In 0.5, the file that need to be changed is amfs-xml.cpp. It fixes the problem with amarok full screen showing the wrong picture if you have more than one image in the albums directory.
