    Re: Conky Exaile Python Script

    I've just switched from flaky Rhythmbox to Exaile 3.0.1 and nothing I do can get conky to display anything about Exaile.

    I tried the "${if_existing /home/user/.exaile/music.db-journal}" (nothing displays)

    also: got rid of the ${if_running exaile} and ${endif} leaving ${execp conkyExaile --template=/home/rich/.conky/conkyExaile.template} result: the template loaded with UNKNOWN for everything.

    also: tried putting $colors in front of $if_running exaile} result: nothing loaded.

    also: tried just running your included example.template using
    Code:
    conky -c /usr/share/conkyexaile/example/conkyrc &
    result: loaded the example with UNKNOWN for everything.

    ... and yes, I am absolutely sure exaile is running the whole time.

    Any help?

    I actually still prefer Rhythmbox, it has a better interface as far as I am concerned. It's a shame there is no real active development carrying on with it...I suspect Banshee will replace Rhythmbox as the default Ubuntu player at some point.

    The Issue

    It looks like the Exaile team have re-written the dbus interface for their app, as a result the script no longer works because it can't get a hold of any music data.

    The conkyExaile script will need a rewrite to work with the new dbus service and it's alternative exposed methods...I'll see what I can fathom out in the short term, but I suspect it will not be a simple change.

    Edit: Fix on it's way, although I can't get coverart to work and there is zero documentation on the GetTrackAttr method and what attribute names are supported

    I'll do another build with this option added, it was missed from the script after being first implemented in the Banshee one, it is in the Rhythmbox script though...shouldn't take much effort.

    Re: Conky Exaile Python Script

    UPDATE

    The script has had the following changes made:

    • Updated to use the new exaile dbus service, currently coverart not working...
    • Added --maxlength option already available with Rhythmbox and Banshee scripts


    Package changes can be seen here: https://launchpad.net/~m-buck/+archive/conky/+files/conkyexaile_2.06_source.changes
    And here: https://launchpad.net/~m-buck/+archive/conky/+files/conkyexaile_2.07_source.changes


    I release 2 versions one after the other, in quick succession...(I messed up )

    The apt packages should be available shortly, the first post has the new packages attached also but they will probably only work with Jaunty

    Note: I forgot to update readme so details on the maxlength option are not present, but this can be looked up using conkyExaile -h in a terminal

    Chimo

    Edit: There was a request made to expose coverart via dbus, it will be introduced in a future release: https://bugs.launchpad.net/exaile/+bug/434787

    Re: Conky Exaile Python Script

    Thank you so muck for all your hard work. I agree with you about rhythmbox eing better, and with the cover art plugin, it make a better visual on the desktop. (With being able to control the player from the cover art; ie. play pause next and previous)

    But sometimes, hitting play the player just hangs...it'll say it's playing, but it's not. Just weird stuff, and I've never had that with Exaile. Now with your hard work, I can enjoy exaile.

    Thank you so much for all your time spent with updates and such.

    \../, you rock ,\../

    My pleasure, just gonna have to wait on the cover art support to be introduced to the api now...3.1 will have it I think, whenever that comes out.

    Re: Conky Exaile Python Script

    Quick heads up, a patch has been posted for a dbus call to retreive cover art, it is detailed against the bug here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/exaile/+bug/434787

    I have updated my exaile source locally and have the gtk-desktop-info app working with it too, just waiting for it to actually be released into a new revision of exaile then I'll publish a new package with the cover art fix...

    Edit: the image returned is only 64x64 pixels I've asked if something better could be achieved, like in older versions...

    Edit2: My bad, the cover art was 64x64 cause of where it came from, better quality art if returned to exaile will be provided via the dbus method. The fix has been commited, it should appear in the next Exaile release.
