Amarok 1.x Scripts by tobydickenson 48 comments

Hi there. I was wondering if it would be possible to add an option so that the volume of the converted tracks gets normalised somewhere in the pipeline, before they are transfered to the portable mp3 player.

Often with podcasts, they are recorded just too quietly, so that background noise from the environment drowns out my headphones, even if I set the volume to maximum.

Apart from that, a normalisation step would ensure that all tracks are more or less of equal volume on the mobile device. - Aug 12 2009

Its not the text which is the glitch. I should have probably described it better.

If you take a look at the first image, kbfxtheme1.jpg. The menu looks normal. If you compare it with the second one, you will see that I have scrolled down in the menu. As you can see the "System" entry pulls the bottom part of the menu border with it for some reason.

I'm guessing thats not supposed to happen.

I've installed your theme per your detailed instructions. However, I've notice a minor fault. Allthough I'm pretty sure this has something to do with my setup, rather than your theme, maybe you can point me in the right direction of how to solve this.

Here are two screenshots which demonstrate this slight glitch which I have in KBFX. This doesnt happen with the default themes from KBFX. I haven't really tried any other ones yet.

However I can confirm that this glitch shows up on both my desktop and my laptop.


I use Gentoo by the way.

Hi, great work.

I know this has been requested before:
Printing of labels directly on Printable DVD-R or CD-R if the Printer supports it. I just wanted to give you some pointers.

I'm not sure if all CD-capable Printers do this, but I think that the printer automatically does not print beyond the defined area of the disc, at least when its in CD-Print mode.

Thats at least the way it is on my Canon Pixma IP4000. (I use the proprietary Turboprint driver by the way)

Anyways, I've noticed that I can use pretty much anything to print CD labels even Gimp. The only real requirement is to have a square image, eg. 1000x1000px and to make sure that Cover design is contained within the Circular boundary of the actual CD. As far as I know the printing driver handles the specifics with CD Label printing.

Anyways. My suggestion would be that you simply implement a simple layout template which is square and has the markings of a CD (with adjustable outer and inner ring) so that you have a visual guide to see where the image would get cut off.
I don't think you have to get funky with the printing mechanism itself.

When I print labels in Gimp, I usually use a pre-existing CD Label image (which I downloaded from somewhere) as a template. Its a bit of a hassle, but it works. I basically load the template image, then make a new layer with 75% opacity so that I can see the boundaries, and then create the label on that new layer. Once Im done I change the layer opacity to 100% and print. Like I said, the actual image file itself is square and can be of any resolution.

If you wanted to implement CD Label printing, I would suggest, simply make a basic option for a CDlabel template and let the printer driver handle the rest. Oh yeah, and a nice function with the template would be to be able to adjust the inner and outer ring. This helps with some Printable Discs where the inner Ring is not printable, or has a different Size than expected. - Sep 12 2008
Hella Screenlet

Is it possible to monitor a remote HellaNZB? e.g. I have a linux server which I use as a firewall/router. I run hellanzb on it. Would it be possible for this screenlet to connect with that remote instance of hellanzb, or just locally? - Jul 03 2008

NFS mountpoints dont seem to work with this screenlet. I used to use conky where it was no problem.

Could you add the function so that even NFS and SAMBA mount points can be displayed and evalued? - Jul 03 2008

Thats odd. When I click on the links it works.

My site is currently offline as in, the actual webpage is not up but instead a joomla framework, but the images are still hosted there and should be available.

Maybe you were unlucky and tried to access them while my Provider had a power outtage.

Please post here if the images are still unavailable. - Sep 13 2007

Awesome Theme. I use gentoo, but for some reason, no matter what I do, I cant get my Windows to have that fine white outline like you do. On my system they are black.

How did you achieve that outline? - Jul 26 2007

Hi guys, some of the links to the wallpapers point to my website.
My bank account was kinda low when the provider tried to deduct their fees for hosting, so the site was offline for a while and therefore some of the links didnt work.

Anyways, everything is back to normal again. :-) - Oct 19 2005

Whats the highest widescreen resolution?
I figure, if Im gonna re-render it, I might as well make it big enough so that all widescreen folks can scale it down to fit. - Sep 24 2005

Ok, I've added a link to the plain Widescreen version.
Its 3200x1200, I think that should be big enough. - Sep 22 2005

When I made that Wallpaper, I was working as a 3D artist at a company which used 3D Studio Max. I was not familiar with Blender yet, and I wanted to make the best looking Wallpaper I could.

Meanwhile I've ditched 3D Studio Max and now work exclusively with Blender. - Sep 18 2005

Sorry, I no longer have the original unedited file.
You could probably just use gimp's clone/stamp tool to remove the text if it bothers you that much. - Sep 16 2005
