No idea. That problem seems to be happening in aRoK too, but I have no clue from where it comes from. My best guess is that it is related to the player module. I just don't have a way to reproduce the issue as I can't get superkaramba to crash on my system... Will only be able to fix if someone with this problem reports back, with some more detail. Bet regards, Lechio.

Hello there. This theme works great except for one problem. It can't load the configuration window (and python is installed).

The output in the console is the following:
File "/home/Cookiesnokami/.kde/share/apps/superkaramba/themes/amaroKer/0007/sc ripts/w_config_amk.py", line 26, in <module>
mainWindow=Configure_amaroKer(None,"amaroKer")
File "/home/Cookiesnokami/.kde/share/apps/superkaramba/themes/amaroKer/0007/sc ripts/config_amk.py", line 45, in __init__
self.green=self.red=self.blue=255
TypeError: invalid type for variable Qt.green

If you need more info about the system, I will reply with it.

Thanks a lot.

Hi all!

I installes Superkaramba and the amaroker theme. it worked until I've set the size to "small". Since this time when I start amaroKer, superkaramba shows it as running, but it does not appear on the desktop. Can anybody help me?

Hi there, sorry about the late reply.
- Remove the directory ~/.kde/share/apps/superkaramba/themes/amaroKer;
- Download the new amaroKer version;
- Run superkaramba from shell and see if it outputs any error or the same problem occurs when resizing the applet.
- Post the shell output here so we can try and locate the problem.
Best regards, Lechio.

hi,

seems the tar.gz is a rar file.
~/resources/karamba$ file amaroker-default-0007.tar.gz
amaroker-default-0007.tar.gz: RAR archive data, v1d, os: Win32

unrar x amaroker-default-0007.tar.gz should uncompress it correctly.
As specified above, to enable the config window, the scripts/config_amK.py needs to be chmodded with execution rights.

happy new year to all

The file seems to be working here, try to extract it from bash. Anyone else with the same issue? An skz file will be added in a few days, with auto extraction. Till then please report bugs. Regards.
Happy Christmas to all who celebrate the birth of Christ.

Bug... Testing the script with new versions of amaroK revealed the error. Getting the score info from amaroK using dcop ís now done with another call, instead of the call that i'm using to get the score ("dcop amarok player score") it now uses another ("dcop amarok player rating"). Will correct that as soon as possible. sorry about that.

Stars aren't showing up? Is star rating enabled on the configuration? Stars will only show for songs with rating bigger tham 0 (played at least 1 time).

Would like to know if anyone else is having this same issue with the configuration window, and the output from bash while it tries to load. So that this bug may be corrected.

Hi. Browse to theme directory /scripts, open a shell and run "chmod +x config_amK.py" and then "./config_amK.py" see what it says.
