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
    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,
    Sirsurthur

  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

    Kulinibox!

    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 ?

  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.
