Description:

This is a "Now Playing" signature script for amarok. I made it only for myself, so don't expect too much, but nice as I am here I share it with you.

It writes the current playing track to "~/.signature" which you can then configure your news- or email-reader to use.

Some of the code was shamelessly stolen from the script amarokNowPlaying (which did not exactly what I wanted).

Hi!

I just install this !!! script, but now I want to add my own signature to "Now playing"...

How can I do it? Any changing of the script - and not any results :(

Unload script, close amarok, restart amarok, restart script.

I was just asked the same question. Therefore: if anybody else stumbles upon this... :)

The author forgot a sleep in the loop.
That is why cpu usage is so high. Just add a sleep 5 or whatever you see fit after the echos.

hth,

Mine too. I stopped the script and user CPU usage dropped from 83% to 11%. You'd be better off writing a script invoked from your mail client for a signature. Both KMail/Kontact and Evolution support this IIRC. amaroK is CPU-cycle hungry enough as it is.

Yeah i have a script too but for a different reason.

I use gaim with a plugin called bangexec that allows me to execute scripts and the output goes to the room.

I often like to show people what Im listening to so I made this script.

]$ cat playlist
#!/bin/bash

#shows what amarok is playing
Player="dcop amarok player"
echo `$Player nowPlaying`

just put it in a file called playlist then type chmod a+x playlist && mv /usr/local/bin
