Description:

This is a plugin for noatun which will display on-screen status messages as your music plays. It is currently only capable of displaying the MP3 filename as it plays, but I'm quickly working on implementing all of the features you'd expect this to do (volume display, etc).

Originally, I intended to use the freely available (gpl'ed) XOSD library to write this plugin. Unfortunately, I found that (a) the xosd interface is pretty ugly, (b) it was multithreaded, and at the time KDE was not, and (c) the xosd interface is REALLY ugly.

As a result, I've implemented a native KDE class (actually, I guess it's technically a Qt widget) which provides the exact same functionality as xosd does, without all of the nastiness. I think I will continue to develop and use this widget, as it seems to be at least the functional equivalent of libxosd, without all of the dirty C nastiness.

Please delete the config.cache from the tarball, as there are those of us who do *not* have kde in /usr/local ;-)

Thanks!

It's the "realone" skin. Should be available here somewhere... Don't recall exactly where, though..

Is it normal that when you increase the volume the lines are drawn on a gray background? (Instead of transparent).
Everything else seems to be working fine.

That might be a bug. I'll have to look into it.

(There does seem to be a slight issue with the way it handles the volume - Since the widget is forced-transparent, it doesn't erase/overwrite the old volume bar before drawing the new one, so it ends up looking strange. I'll need to thunk it over for a while before I can come up with a good solution to THAT one...)

aha .. right .. there is no keybinding for "current track" .. hmm .. somethin' else ... if I use noautun to watch a movie fullscreen and I use noautun-osd to adjust volume ... the kicker pops up as well (inevitably). Would be nice to adjust the volume in a movie within having the kicker shown. -- Fab

in new version (v0.4) u removed the directory..full path from the filename.. this sux.. :

hmm.. somehow the rest of my post is gone.. so again..

why _not_ displaying the full path in bad idea? becase the same thing does noatun.. (and this is really the one thing which I hate in this great player).. u never know what filename you are currently listening to.. just the damn title..

I don't load just one directory to the noatun playlist.. I just load my whole directory with mp3.. which are well. a lots of mp3's... then I hear a cool song.. want to see what filename is this.. and I can't.. :/

If I would like to see the tile, I could mouse over the noatun icon and see the hint there... or open the playlist..

I thinks u should provide some option for this as well.. however I've changed the sources and I got back the full path ... so I am happy now :)

God Bless You My Son...

I was waiting for someting like this almost a half a year.... u could do something like this for xmms.. but I don't like xmms - noatun = xmmskiller

so keep up the good job man.. the only thing which is missing is posibility to set the timout of the text display.. and some key binding I could use to display current track again.. (yup sometimes I forgott :)

Thanks you for a cool feature that rises noatuns level again a little bit higher !

I guess you will add features like changing the osd-color and the location (top) later, so i won't mention them here :-)
