    Again, I attached a deb for testing.
    Everything seems to be fixed as far as making the avatars through the gui (tested -name 1 as well). Though I still can't get an action to add an avatar to the playlist. It now outputs

    Code:
    jayde6@jayde6-desktop:~/Music/Adult Alternative/Meredith Brooks$ avatar-factory -al --launcher mpd-add "Blurring the Edges.desktop"
    cat: Blurring the Edges.desktop: No such file or directory
    jayde6@jayde6-desktop:~/Music/Adult Alternative/Meredith Brooks$ /usr/local/bin/avatar-factory: line 44: eval: --: invalid option
    eval: usage: eval [arg ...]

    That fixed things for me. I can confirm jayde6's problem, although it works if you supply the full path.

    The --widget option is to automatically show/hide the music widget.
    The widget is created when you make click on a music avatar if it is configured to act as a launcher.

    Then for example if you have totem configured as your music player for music avatars you can run "avatar-factory --widget" and the widget will hide if totem is not running and it will be shown if it is running.

    You config seems ok, I am not sure if I understand correctly. My english is not very good.
    You say that when you click on a music avatar the music start playing and no widget appears. Is that correct?

    If it is, the problem could be the name of your desktop folder.
    Go to your user folder:
    Code:
    nautilus $HOME
    If your desktop folder name is not Desktop then that must be the cause.
    I don't know how to get the Desktop folder name from bash.

    To fix it you can do this from the terminal:
    Code:
     ln -s ~/DesktopName ~/Desktop
    Replace "DesktopName" with the name of your Desktop folder.

    Yeah, it was a problem. My desktop dir is "Pulpit" (polish version of ubuntu). But I found a file:
    ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs
    There's defined desktop folder name:
    XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Pulpit"

    I think you can use it


    Please tell me one more thing. How to create launcher-type avatars, that will ADD songs to mpd playlist, not overwrite it?

    Add the following to the configuration file or overwrite the existing key:
    Code:
    music=mpd-add
    Also, you can add albums to the playlist by dragging and dropping a music avatar to the widget. It will work better if you resize the widget to it maximum size.
