More data I forgot to mention, sorry: KDE 4.5.3, QT 4.7.0, no compiz/effects. - Nov 15 2010
When I updated from QTCurve 1.7.0 to 1.7.1, VMWare workstation start malfunctioning: instead of the normal image in its window, I can only see the mouse on a black screen. I have Kubuntu 10.10 as host, VMWare 7.1.2 and Windows XP and 7 as guests. I have reverted to QTCurve 1.6.4 and everything is fine. - Nov 15 2010

Thank you very, very much! I just loved your Ayatana notifications and after installing KDE 4.4 beta, I was dismayed to find them missing. Now I installed Colibri and I'm happy again :)
By the way: great idea the „disappearing act” under the mouse! - Dec 18 2009

I managed to fix the issue of the notification appearing, disappearing, appearing, etc. by changing time.sleep(0.98) into time.sleep(10) in

Still, I realized that the displaying time of the notification is not the one specified in the settings, but probably the one default for KDE (about 3 seconds). - Jul 31 2009

Amarok 2.x Scripts by meerkat 39 comments

I did not try to use version 1.1 until I have updated to KDE 4.3 RC3 and NotifyAmarok stopped working altogether.

The interesting thing in KDE 4.3 RC3 is the developers unified the notification system, so even the notifications sent through notify-osd appear through the KDE notification system. Something in this change made NotifyAmarok 1.0 stop working, so I updated to 1.1 from the link you gave me.

The good news:
- It is working again!
- The characters with accents are no longer a problem!

The ??? news:
- The notifications appear through KNotify. This means (I think) that using the Gnome-style notifications under KDE 4.3 is out of the question. Personally, I do not have a problem with that (I'm interested in the quality of the notifications, not the format, and a unified format appeals to my sense of order), but others might have.
- Right now, NotifyAmarok and amaroKnotify looks quite similar under KDE, but your script is still a lot more configurable.

The bad news:
- The line breaks ($n) are replaced with simple white spaces.
- The album cover is not shown - the default KDE "missing" icon is shown instead. Though, if the album has no cover, the default "nocover" image IS shown! A bug, maybe? Also, the image shown is very, very small, because of the placement in the notification format.
- Instead of appearing, staying on screen for the set time, and then disappearing, the notification appears for a second, disappears, appears again for a second, disappears again, and the cycle keeps repeating for the set time.

I hope this helps. You have done a great job with this script and I long to see it perfected. - Jul 31 2009

Amarok 2.x Scripts by meerkat 39 comments

I have done some tests and I managed to locate the problem. I have tested only combinations of 3 fields: artist, title, and album.

My configuration for the script was:
Head: $artist$n$notes $title $notes
Body: $album ($year)$n$play $elapsed /$total

The symbols for "notes" and "play" appear fine, btw.

I tried removing various parts from both the head and the body and it seems that the error appears only if both the following conditions are true:
- the artist or the album field contains a character with an accent
- that specific field is not "alone" in its position (be it Head or Body).

So, if $artist is Händel (and no other fields are special):

This version

Head: $artist
Body: $title - $album

works fine, while this version

Head: $title
Body: $artist - $album

throws a blank.

If only the title has a special character, everything works fine, no matter how the @title field is combined.

I hope this helps. - Jul 21 2009

Thank you for the script, it work nicely even under KDE.

Just one thing: it does not seem to work when it needs to show characters with accents (like é). All text is missing (I get a blank popup with only the cover image).

If it helps, the ID3 tags for those specific MP3 files might be UTF-8 encoded (with EasyTAG). - Jul 21 2009

I have downloaded the file and it seems that it is the Beta 3 version. Does this mean that there will not be a final (as in non-beta) version? That is too bad, I was looking forward to see it finished.

Thanks for your work so far. - Dec 04 2007
