Amakonvi 0.2 Script for Amarok, automatically "Now Playing" for Konversation.
There are several scripts for Konversation that shows Amarok info but they don't update and shows track name/artist when song changes. Amakonvi can do it :-)
Extract files in Amarok scripts directory, usually is
make both files executables:
[quote]chmod +x konvi-amarok-status.sh
chmod +x konvi-now-listening.sh[/quote]
Open Amarok, go to Tools --> Script Manager and you'll see both files. Right click in konvi-amarok-status.sh and Edit, go to last line and replace irc.escomposlinux.org "#blogdrake"
for your favorite IRC server and channel, for example:
or whatever. Save changes, now select
konvi-now-listening.sh and click Run. You must see song and artist name that amarok is playing in Konversation channel.
See screenshots, read README file in tarball or visit this post http://blogdrake.net/node/12288 in Blogdrake.net (Mandriva weblog/forum for Spanish community) for more info.
Thanks to Kopete Now Listening script, "lite" version, by Amy Brodzik, Amakonvi is based on his work. Another thanks for guys in #konversation channel in Freenode for give some clues with DCOP.
This is first version and I'm not a scripting wizard so please don't be rude and leave a comment :-)
