    Question Songbird + Emesene = Current Song display?

    Hopefully these forums can help me

    I've recently discovered Songbird (fabolous mediaplayer I must say).
    And I'm currently using emesene, which is by far the best looking msnclient i've found.

    To the point of this thread:
    When checking the plugins in emesene there's "Current Song" plugin which displays the current song i'm listening to. Works great using Amarok for example. But not with Songbird, there's no option for it.
    Then I read on the Songbird forums that it's possible to solve that using some kind of patch and downloading some things.

    I need help with this, what do I need, how to do do it?

    Really thankful for answers!

    I'll happily bump this as although i'm pretty much married to Rhythmbox, i do like to use Songbird every now and again just to test out some features/feathers etc!

    Anyone know how?
    OMG! Ubuntu!
    Everything Ubuntu. Daily.

    Thank for the great guide Mauro!

    My Italian is nonexistant, but Babelfish translator made the instructions easy.

    Works like a charm. Highly recommended until the plugin maker supports Songbird.

    Re: Songbird + Emesene = Current Song display?

    i have to bump this thread, since the dbus extension cannot be installed over latest songbird (downloaded fron getdeb.net), so, are there any current alternatives known as working?
    thanks!
