This is fairly good but lacks the capability (unless I'm missing something) of adding the album cover artwork to the printout. Will this be added in the future?

No that's not the idea behind this script. CoverPrint is meant to be used when there's no cover art available. Besides, there are other scripts available that do this already.

Thanks very much for the script, very useful! I toyed with the xslt and made my own template, but I would also really like to embed the album art in the template along with the tracklist. Either as a thumbnail or more preferably as a washed-out background to the tracklisting. I understand enough to modify the templates you originally gave, but maybe you could give me a hint as to the xsl code I would need to include a scaled image in the background?? :D I guess I can use ImageMagick to manipulate the imge first if necessary.

you could take a look at how the 'artist' and 'title' parameters are used in the template. If SVG supports embedding bitmaps you could pass the filename of the bitmap as a parameter as well.

Hi,
please use correct extension for filename of amarok scripts.

Some screenshots would be nice.

And it would be helpful to know the dependencies. Not everybody has inkscape on a kde installation.

Anyway, good idea.
regards

I've put the dependencies in the description. If you install CoverPrint through amarok/KHotNewStuff itself it already showed them though.

Screenshots are coming :)

But what do you mean with the right extension? This is not the only script that distributes as .tar.bz2, nor do the packaged scripts have script directories ending in .amarokscript.

Anyway, thanks for the feedback.

For filename extension see: http://amarok.kde.org/amarokwiki/index.php/Script-Writing_HowTo

Search for chapter "packaging".

Appimages

To install any downloaded Appimage via GUI, use this tool AppImagelauncher.

To install Appimages from Appimagehub via CLI use appimage-cli-tool.
This allows you to e.g. search appimages with "app search xyz" and install any appimage via command "app install #id".

If you are a developer who is interested to easily build appimages from your code repo, read the guide here.
