Amarok 1.x Scripts by tkaitchuck 32 comments

The script doesnt work for me. I am on SUSE-10.0. I compiled streamripper successfully and can run it from the commandline just fine, even traversing the proxy I need to go through. I'm using amarok 1.3.7 with the Xine engine (no other engine works for me...) However, doesn't work as an amarok script. The major problem is described at the end. First a few minor quirks:First, the script tries to create $PodcastDir inside $MusicDir.Next, it changes directory into $MusicDir.Then it checks if $MusicDir exists and creates it if missing.The order should rather be "3)"-"1)"-"2)", no?Also, it would be nice if you could add "-p $http_proxy" to the calling arguments of streamripper (and maybe the line 'http_proxy="$http_proxy"' to the variable definitions).The major problem is this error message:The connection was refused for the URL: http://localhost:8017/
xine parameters: http status not 2xx.Did you test the script with the Xine engine? What could be the reason for the "http status" error message?
In any case: thanks for the nice script -- I'm sure it is a very useful one for many people. Even if it doesn't work for me right now, it showed me just how much and how well DCOP support is already implemented in amarok, and what kind of amzing things one can do with DCOP scripting KDE applications! Thanks a lot! - Dec 28 2005

The link to the klik package you provide above does not work.

You should try to make it like this: klik://edukator - Nov 01 2005

aleixpol, you asked on the klik website for a klik://kalgebra package? But it works already! (It gives you version 0.2.1). You asked for a packager? We don't do this, usually -- we provide "recipes" which help the klik client to convert existing binaries (.debs for Sarge are the best; most portable) into .cmg files. So if you can provide us a permanent symlink "kalgebra-latest" which points to the latest binary package (whatever the real version is), we can surely make klik://kalgebra-latest work for you! We can even make simple *.tar.gz (compiled by you) work, or RPMs -- it is just a bit more effort for us, and the risk is higher for you that the package doesnt work for many of your users/testers. If you compile on a Debian Sarge machine (heck, you could even use an old Knoppix for this), and just create a binary tarball with everything included, we can do the rest....

Please check if your klik client is current. (There occur daily changes currently). To be sure, re-install:

"wget -O - | sh"

Check if you have the files (shellscripts) .zAppRun and .klik in your ${HOME}.

You can run the klik client on the commandline (with -x for more verbose output):

"sh -x ${HOME}/.zAppRun krita-cmg"

which should startup Krita.

What OS is it that you are using? - Sep 23 2005

Read this:

Do this: [alt]+[f2]; "wget -O -|sh" (if you find there are still DNS problems, put "" into your /etc/hosts

Please update with correct spelling: * "Standard", not "Standart"; * insert a comma in "Anwendungen, die..."; * correctly capitalize "freie Alternative"; * insert a Comma in "Programmierern, die..."; Also, I suggest to replace "verstreut" with "verteilt"... Nice initiative! - Jul 24 2005

DAMN !!!!

Somehow my long comment to this most excellent suggestion was lost by Appsy. (Also, there were about 2 dozen more comments before mine, and they are all gone....)

OK -- I will write my thoughts down in my blog ( which hopefully has a longer memory [and maybe even more readers ;-)     ] - Nov 13 2004

I very much like your mockups --

[-3-] ,

I withdraw my idea of a drop-down combobox-like URL-protocol-selector as described in my blog ( -- Your idea is much better. My drop-down probably is too difficult to implement in a clean, non-intrusive way.     ;-)   ;-)

Your concept of a new "super-kio" or "meta-kio" slave named "locations:/" is much cleaner.

To make it fullfill its purpose (namely, that all important kioslaves should become more exposed to users, and that their use should be made as easy as possible, and that it should sport a clean user interface), the darn thingie should however be very well visible:

* make it the default for Konqui's "Home" button on all new installations (with the option for users to change it to something else). That would create the desired visibility.

* create a shortcut with icon "Locations" on each desktop on the upper left corner. That could create additional visibility.

* each one of the kio-slave icons in the "locations:" folder should have a wizard associated with it in a right-click context menu. That could help the ease of use.

* each one of the kio-slave icons in the "locations:" folder should have a well-worded tooltip as well as a WhatsThis entry, as well as a complete documentation (the end user documentation in this field currently sucks big time). That could help to increase the ease of use.

* only the most important kio-slaves should be directly visible in the "locations:" folder (max. 6 items). The rest should be hidden in a subfolder. (To add more items, click on subfolder, which opens on separate window, and drag'n'drop icons from subfolder to main "location:" folder. Explain this when subfolder is opened...). This could help keeping the user interface clean...

kio_Locate is wonderful!

I use locate quite often on the commandline -- and I very often pipe the output into "grep" to narrow down the selection. Otherwise I often get to see more findings than are healthy for me ;-)

Is it possible to include that into kio_Locate too?

Are you planning to present Kommander at the KDE Community World Summit in August?

Will the next stable version be out by that time?

Are you planning the same for Quanta? - Jun 05 2004
