but now I have the problem that I would like to situate newly created windows on empty space of the strap, or the newly created window to be kind of "wedged" between two open windows right now, bumping the windows on the right more to the right and making room for the new window.

Is that feasible?

So far great thing here. - Feb 20 2012
OK, I found the problem. IT's on my side. thanks for your help. - Feb 20 2012
Of course it is a bug. Your program does not compile as advertised in kde 4.8. This is a bug by definition. Fix the source to detect the correct header and use that header, then push the fix to your repo. - Feb 20 2012
I posted everything you are asking as a bug report link in a comment above. Please read the report. - Feb 19 2012

Those three tracks are not in your collection -- they are not in the urls table. Tried updating your collection already?

You can zip up your mysqle directory, send it to me over email (my web site and project site for this plugin have the email address listed as contact). - Aug 06 2010
oh, the log output should now have more information about WHICH files were not found. That is good. Send me that log output! - Aug 05 2010
I dunno what else is wrong then. I would need a copy of your script.log and a copy of your mysqle directory within .kde/share/apps/amarok to diagnose this, and a copy of your current.xspf file as well, see what is wrong. - Aug 05 2010
I may have fixed your bug in the latest release. Update amarok qtscript library and labeler. - Aug 05 2010
you see this?

SQL query: select id,rpath from urls where rpath in ('./media/disk1part3/SILVIA/Musica/CoLonNE sOnOrE/DaRedAviL/03-saliva-bleed_for_me-its.mp3')

If this query is failing and returning no results (it appears that it should), you would have to go and inspect your database with the Amarok Script Console script or something like that. One reason why that query may be failing is because that track is not in your collection. And non-collection tracks are not supported. - Aug 04 2010

send me the log (script.log inside the script's folder, that is usually .kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/labeler ).

in all likelihood, the labeler is telling you with this cryptic message that the tracks you selected are not in your collection / cannot be found in your collection (in which case they cannot be labeled as far as I know because the labels only work for collection tracks). you would also need to send me a dump of your database if you want a faster diagnosis. - Aug 04 2010
sounds reasonable to me. at some point I will add a feature to add menu entries in Tools for specific tags, so you can quickly tag and untag the song that is playing. - Aug 01 2010
What do you mean hotkeys? You can assign shortcut keys to the labeler menu items within Amarok, just fine, but unfortunately those are not saved and will be erased when Amarok restarts. File a bug against amarok on to have them fix it.

As for Nepomuk labels... that would be a fantastic idea but that's a bit too much work for my time. I can take patches, though. :-) - Aug 01 2010
Oh, also rate the script positively plz :-D - Jul 28 2010

1. you mean the tristate checkbox? it should be easy to fix -- the checkbox for the label should not be made tristate if one is dealing with only one track. patches welcome! (search for "tristate" in the source)

2. Donno how to fix the help button issue. I use a qbuttonbox and it somehow misaligns the added qpushbutton.

3 Oh I tried so hard to do that, but I could not. Even touching the files and rescanning collection has no effect. So I filed a bug request to improve the scripting API for this. - Jul 28 2010

You do not need to start the script for it to work -- it is just a library. however, I have fixed this bug and I am about to release 0.1.2 for that. - Aug 05 2010

sorta fixed it

v must not ever be "connect" or "disconnect" either in either of the two addroot or addobject functions. otherwise it gets stuck in a loop of object.disconnect.disconnect.disconnect.forever - Aug 03 2010
it then says there are errors in the debug output. the error is something like infinite recursion or something. - Aug 03 2010

It uses mp3gain to calculate, so yes, ape. BUT, AFTER that is done, it uses mutagen to take the info from ape tags and put it in ID3 RVA2 tags. - Aug 01 2010

Well, it does hash every song into a distinctive hash, based on how the song sounds like. If you've recorded a song from the radio, chances are Quees (MusicBrainz) will find which song is it. In my experience, with a folder full of remixes and stuff, it has found about 50% of the songs. Sometimes human check is needed though. This is also integrated in JuK and the MusicBrainz Tagger (only windows for now, sigh) does an excellent job. - Jan 21 2004
