Description:

a very simple xmms-theme with drag'n drop support

- make sure PyXMMS is installed, otherwise the theme will do nothing

- make sure you're running superkaramba v0.33, otherwise the fontsize may get screwed up

- if you have problems running it from another theme, use the superkaramba 'frontend' instead

- after en-/disabling shadows, reload the theme for the changes to take effect

- use mouse wheel for scanning: up= +10s, down= -10s

- the 'open-browser'-item is configured to pop-up a konqueror window, loading the profile 'audio' (you have to create one). if you dislike this behaviour, just change the appropriate call in custom_xmms.py

- the font used is 'child's play'. you can dl it from http://www.momscorner4kids.com/fonts/childsplay.htm

big thanks to patrick for debugging and code

hint:
to get single-click working, you have to lock the theme

i'm thinking about adding a bunch of features (time, random, repeat, font selection..), but i'm not qite sure how to design it. i don't want to loose the simple style for a feature-bloated interface ;).. we'll see.

anyhow, thanks for the comment, any feedback on this, ideas/requests/comments, is very welcome ;).

Maybe I don't have python-xmms:

-----
bunker@slackbox:~$ superkaramba
superkaramba: TaskManager::TaskManager()
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/bunker/.superkaramba/themes/custom_xmms/custom_xmms.py", line 5, in ?
import xmms.control
ImportError: No module named xmms.control
------------------------------------------------------
What does ImportError mean?

Where i can download it? I use slackware 9.1. Google isn't my friend in this situation :)

search for pyxmms, python-xmms is the name debian is using.

you mean the import error?
try the following, type on the console of your choice and make sure xmms is running:

python
import xmms
xmms.control.is_playing()

the result should be 1/0 wether xmms is playing or not. if this doesn't work, check your python/python-xmms installation. if it's working, let me know.

it's calling the konqi profile 'audio':
'kfmclient openProfile audio'

to use this, you have to create such a profile with konqi, for example: resize a konqi window the way you like it, change to your audio directory and go to 'settings' -> 'configure view profile'. name it 'audio', check the check-buttons on the bottom and save it.

the other way would be to edit the call within xmms_custom.py and call an available standard-profile like 'kfmclient openProfile filemanagement'.

ok, that did it but now it's something else. When i press open it open konqueror, great... but when i choose a son it opens xmms. Was that the idea or was it to control the playing from custom-xmms theme?

thanks
