Music Applet 2.5.0 released

Keeping my word, Music Applet 2.5.0 is now available. This release adds support for the long-awaited Amarok 2. It also fixed lots of bugs. In particular, the applet will no longer try to take over your entire panel if you play a song with a long title, and handling of metadata when playing Internet radio streams is vastly improved. There are additional bug fixes too; check the release notes for details.

  1. Dear Paul Kuliniewicz,

    I compiled from source music-applet 2.5.0 using following commands :
    ./configure –prefix=/usr
    make install
    I chosen plugin ‘quodlibet’ but title / artist are not displayed anymore [both if dbus or command : quodlibet] in the panel and the notification bubble is squared and consequently does not look like the screenshots I saw on your website.

    Tell me if you need some more information.

    Best regards,

  2. Which version of Quod Libet are you running? I have version 1.0 (from Ubuntu Intrepid), and everything works fine as far as I can tell. Is there anything in ~/.gnome2/music-applet/stderr.log or stdout.log that suggests what the problem might be?

    The look of the notification popup is determined by notification-daemon. I’m not sure how it determines how the popups should appear.

  3. It’s a sad sad day when Jamie, Ryan, and Benji are too distracted to post


    Before someone actually asks a relevant question about the new version of Kulinibox.

  4. I wasn’t distracted…I just didn’t have any internet. Long live Kulinibox!

  5. Hello. I’m really happy with this applet. I’m just wandering if I could change the controls (play, pause, next, prev) to the left side of the applet ?

    Email me at


  6. In other words, not only choose which controls appear, but also their order. It’d be doable, but I’m not immediately sure how that would interact with long-awaited support for fat panels (i.e., a two-row display). It’s on the to-do list.
