    Re: Howto: Music album covers in Thunar Nautilus and everywhere!

    Do you know if the imdb page for the movie with missing cover has a cover?
    There are some bugs in the film grabber that I will fix for the next version. For example, the correct replacement of underscore chars (_).

    If you could give me an example of a movie that doesn't work and/or suggest a site that could work better that would be great.

    Right now I think imdb is the most complete site for this.

    There is also another program that works automatically and does practically the same:
    imdb-thumbnailer
    It works better with thunar since thunar doesn't move/rename the thumbnail along with the movie. It is the one I'm using now.

    i had the underscore problem some time ago and i think i solved it using tr

    in the film grabber i replaced this
    Code:
    query=$(echo "$avatar_title" | sed -e 's/ /+/g' -e 's/(/%28/g' -e 's/)/%29/g')
    with this
    Code:
    query=$(echo $title | tr '_' ' ' | tr '.' ' ' | tr '-' ' '| sed -e 's/ /+/g' -e 's/(/%28/g' -e 's/)/%29/g')
    i hope this helps a little

    and again your app is great, thanks

    Thanks Gourgi. That should work. I will do exactly the same but all with sed. Thats what I did in imdb-thumbnailer.

    Re: Howto: Music album covers in Thunar Nautilus and everywhere!

    Great Work Yuzem...Thanx

    1. I have one question; suppose i have Artist/Album
    but the Artist folder contains more than one Album ..
    is there a way to make the Artist folder show the inside-albums avatars that will look like this? (the second pic where the folder shows the albums stack on each other)

    2. It's a request ..can u give more effort to the GUI? i just feel like it needs to be more organized and apparently u forgot to include the Theme choose step in the GUI process. indeed i wish i could help but i have no idea about making GUI.

    Thanx again

    Sadly not. It still can't change folder icons.

    Yes, the next version will have a big gui improvement. Nothing amazing because I'm using zenity for the gui that has many limitations but it will be more powerful and simple.
    I didn't forgot about the theme choose step, I decided to sacrifice that in order to have less steps but that will not be a problem in the next version.

    nice update , UI has more power now!

    but... here are some bugs for imdb from UI options:
    1 ) "Icons Size" options gives nothing as edit options (i use nautilus)
    2 ) where did the 'source' option went in imdb grabber ?? how one can give source folder from UI ?
    3 ) where is the 'launcher type' option ? how can i add this ?

    edit
    i tried this, but i have errors
    Code:
    avatar-factory -g imdb --type --gui
    cat: /home/gourgi/.avatar-factory/avatar-launcher: No such file or directory
    /usr/local/bin/avatar-factory: line 333: SOURCE_input: bad array subscript
    /usr/local/bin/avatar-factory: line 337: SOURCE_input: bad array subscript
    /usr/local/bin/avatar-factory: line 344: SOURCE_input: bad array subscript
     does not exist or it is not a directory

    THX

    Yes I'll take a look at the new version.
    I hope the icon-size works

    EDIT : size has no effect.. They ARE too small.
    Actually, i think the picture itself is bigger, but it still is too small in nautilus.
    We should have a descent size but keeping the zoom at 100% (because putting a zoom at 200% makes the icons bigger, but the spaces between icons too (->ugly) ).
    I guess it still is not possible . I'm waiting for a (sad) confirmation.
    A size such as this picture would be so nice..

    1 ) Yes, it is happening with all bookmark grabbers: youtube etc...
    2 ) Bookmarks grabbers don't use a source. You have to set the browser (firefox, opera or epiphany) in the config file. Firefox is the default. For videos in your computer use the film grabber.
    3 ) The launcher type option is there for folder grabbers (music comic picture and tv-show). The others use the avatar launcher by default.

    You must set the destination, for example:
    Code:
    avatar-factory -g imdb --type --gui ~/Desktop
    Those errors should be more user friendly I will take a look.

    EDIT : size has no effect..
    Are you sure? Some times nautilus doesn't update the view correctly. You must close the window and open it again. If that doesn't work try to restart nautilus:
    Code:
    killall nautilus

    Use 27 for that.
