    I don't a python programmer.

    Thanks for the great script !!!
    I am using python v2.7.1...no issues here. Are you using an up-to-date script? I recall an issue in the past but can't remember if I fixed it or it was python 3.0 related issues...

    Code:
     [USER@towerpc1 ~]$ python --version
    Python 2.7.1
     [USER@towerpc1 ~]$ conkyRhythmbox --version
    conkyRhythmbox v.2.17
     [USER@towerpc1 ~]$ conkyRhythmbox -h
    Usage: conkyRhythmbox.py [options]
    
    Options:
      -h, --help            show this help message and exit
      -t FILE, --template=FILE
                            define a template file to generate output in one call.
                            A displayable item in the file is in the form

                            option. Note that if set to an empty string i.e. ""
                            the original file path is provided for the coverart
                            path.
      -r CHAR, --ratingchar=CHAR
                            [default: *] The output character for the ratings

    Re: Conky Rhythmbox Python Script

    I've installed 11.10 and got everything in my old Maverick conky working except for Rhythmbox

    Code:
    RHYTHMBOX (ELEVATOR MUSIC) ${hr 1}
    ${font Arial:size=8}
    ${voffset 4}Artist:${alignr}${exec conkyRhythmbox --datatype=AR}${font}
    ${voffset 4}${alignr}${exec conkyRhythmbox --datatype=TI}${font}
    ${voffset 4}Duration:${alignr}${exec conkyRhythmbox --datatype=PT}#${font}
    ${endif}
    I've reinstalled it with no result - is there something missing from the code perchance? Thanks!

    Try running a conkyRhythmbox command in the console with the verbose option on so you see what is happening e.g.

    Code:
    conkyRhythmbox --datatype=TI --verbose
    This should explain things a little better...

    Thanks kaivalagi - I should have remembered that from re-setting up my Conky script in the fresh install of 11.10

    Anyway, it's calling the wrong interface (I think?) - any suggestions on what/how to adjust?
    Code:

    Re: Conky Rhythmbox Python Script

    Please help with conky Rhythmbox. Basically, the album art is not showing in conky.
    It IS showing in my /home/davejr/.album directory.
    I do have conky Rhythmbox installed via synaptic.

    Terminal is spitting this out:
    sh: ret: not found
    sh: albumart: not found
    Conky: Unable to load image '/home/davejr/.album'
    Conky: Unable to load image '/home/davejr/.album'
    Conky: Unable to load image '/home/davejr/.album'
    sh: ret: not found
    sh: albumart: not found
    Conky: Unable to load image '/home/davejr/.album'
    Here is relevant section:
    Code:
    ${voffset -110}${font Arial:bold:size=10}${color5}RHYTHMBOX ${color8}${hr 2}
    ${goto 100}${font Arial:bold:size=8}${color0}${exec rhythmbox-client --print-playing-format %tt}
    ${goto 100}${font Arial:bold:size=8}${color0}${exec rhythmbox-client --print-playing-format %ta}$font${exec ret}
    ${execi 1 albumart}${image /home/davejr/.album -p 0,500 -s 64x64}

    Hi kaivalagi, Can I ask for your help with mpdcron?
    I use it "standalone", not for conky purposes, but I adapt your script for displaying the album cover in the notification...However I cannot get it work.

    mpdcron reads the album art in the format Artist - Album from a selected folder.
    With the script, I successfully create a symbolic link of the cover in the folder ~/.covers but mpdcron does not show the album art anyway.
    Here's the modified script:

    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/env sh
    
    # get cover (if found) and link it to /tmp/cover
    coverfile="$HOME/Musica/Album/$MPD_SONG_TAG_ARTIST/$MPD_SONG_TAG_ALBUM/cover.jpg"
    outputcoverfile="$HOME/.covers/$MPD_SONG_TAG_ARTIST - $MPD_SONG_TAG_ALBUM"
    if [ -f "$coverfile" ]; then
        #rm -f "$outputcoverfile"
        echo "coverart.sh - Linking '$outputcoverfile' to cover file '$coverfile'"
        ln -s "$coverfile" "$outputcoverfile"
    else
        echo "coverart.sh - No matching cover art file found here: '$coverfile'"
        rm -f "$outputcoverfile"
    fi
    Here's mpdcron config file:
    Code:
    # mpdcron example configuration
    # vim: set et sw=4 sts=4 tw=80 ft=desktop :
    # Copy this file to MPDCRON_DIR/mpdcron.conf where MPDCRON_DIR is
    # ~/.mpdcron by default.
    
    # mpdcron related options are specified in the main group
    [main]
    # Location of the pid file.
    # pidfile = /var/run/mpdcron.pid
    # Wait this many seconds after sending signal to kill the daemon
    killwait = 3
    
    # Mpd related options are specified in the mpd group.
    [mpd]
    # The list of events to wait for
    events = database;stored_playlist;playlist;player;mixer;output;options;update
    # Inverval in seconds for reconnecting to Mpd.
    reconnect = 5
    # Timeout in milliseconds for Mpd timeout, 0 for default timeout of
    # libmpdclient.
    timeout = 0
    
    [player]
    # modules is a semicolon delimited list of modules to load.
    modules = notification;scrobbler
    
    [main]
    modules = notification
    
    [notification]
    # Covers path, defaults to ~/.covers
    cover_path = ~/.covers
    # Cover suffix, defaults to jpg
    cover_suffix =
    # Notification timeout in milliseconds.
    timeout = 50000
    # Notification type
    type = mpd
    # Notification urgency, one of low, normal, critical
    urgency = normal
    # Notification hints in format TYPE:NAME:VALUE, specifies basic extra data
    # to pass. Valid types are int, double, string and byte
    hints =
    Finally, here's the error that mpdcron gives me:

    Code:
    Sending status & currentsong commands to Mpd server
    [notification] Failed to find cover for album (Tool - 10,000 Days), suffix: 
    [notification] Sending notify for song (Tool - Jambi), id: 517, pos: 1
    Setting environment variable MC_CALLS_PLAYER=1
    Running hook: hooks/player home directory: /home/milo/.mpdcron
    Sending idle command with mask 0xff
    As you can see, mpdcron complains about not finding the cover for the album, but I can assure you that in ~/.covers I've got a jpg file named Tool - 10,000 Days.
    I searched up and down for a solution but nothing...
    So, having used your script, I try here but feel free to say if I am too much OT or if I bothered you.

    Thank you very much.

    Re: Conky Rhythmbox Python Script

    mmmmmm, I am not sure I can be of help but what you are trying to do seems a big wrong to me as you are attempting to feed one function of mpdcron (notification) using another (script to link cover art)...maybe mpdcron is attempting to notify before the sym linking is done?

    Some more thoughts which could well lead nowhere:

    The output indicates there is no known suffix even though it should be jpg by default:

    Code:
    Sending status & currentsong commands to Mpd server
    [notification] Failed to find cover for album (Tool - 10,000 Days), suffix: 
    Code:
    # Cover suffix, defaults to jpg
    cover_suffix =
    So what happens if you use, any difference?:

    Code:
    # Cover suffix, defaults to jpg
    cover_suffix = jpg
    Also what happens if instead of sym linking the cover art you copy it?

    First of all, let me thank you for your help, you are very kind...

    Exactly the first thing I thought. However, If i manually put the cover with the correct filename in the correct path, previous to start reproducing it I get the same error anyway.

    The output indicates there is no known suffix even though it should be jpg by default:

    ...

    So what happens if you use, any difference?:
    I tried several combination, no suffix, suffix specified, filename with suffix, filename without it...always the same error!

    Also what happens if instead of sym linking the cover art you copy it?
    Same error again...

    Thank you anyway!!
