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

    Ah, I had a strange issue.
    I tried several times to generate my avatars due to a prob with the --type opt.
    My avatars were working yesterday, launching audacious on click, but today (after a reboot) my first try was in konqueror for the test, and after in nautilus and, surprise ! same error : "can't open destiantion is not a folder".
    I think my ~/.avatar-factory was messed up, so I delete it, delete my avatars, regenerate (without problems) and then re-test.
    It works now in nautilus, and surpriiiise it works also nice in konqueror
    so forget my previous post

    I saw a post about the icons being to small when combined with the stacks applet for AWN.

    I modified the settings so the icons are bigger and I modified the columns and rows to look better. Have a look at the screenshot.

    yep, seen in sept desktop thread. really nice unfortunately, change the icon size in the stack applet is for all the folder you browse, not a big problem, but I dont like big size for other folders I browse with stacks.
    btw, stacks and avatar-factory also
    AND I VOTE FOR A 3RD PARTY FORUM FOR AVATAR-FACTORY
    this can bring a better organisation, I think before this thread becomes huge

    Yeah, I turned off browsing in stacks so I can't look at other folders. I figure stacks is meant for only one folder...not to be another filemanager.

    How did you modify the icon size? I tried to do it in gconf, but the setting had no effect. Maybe is it just that I'm using an old version of AWN? I installed it from the repos linked a few posts before. My version is 0.1.2-bzr78-1 (for AWN) and 0.1.0-bzr43-1 (for the core applets).

    EDIT: Forget it. I needed to restart twice (the first time nothing had changed).

    Will we be seeing XMMS support for this anytime soon? It'd be amazing.

    EDIT - It's not listed (or I missed it) but it still works.

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

    Here it is the new version. Now it comes in a deb package and if you are lucky, it will also work.
    There are a lot of changes in this version but most of them are internal changes. Because of that some unknown bugs could pop up. Report them with no mercy.

    Some of the changes:

    Player-add
    Now is possible to configure the music launcher with some players to add the albums to the playlist without clearing it.
    To do that set the following instead of the name of the player in the configuration file:
    For mocp: "mocp-add"
    For mpd: "mpd-add"
    For audacious: "audacious-add"
    For totem: "totem-add"

    YouTube grabber
    I don't know if the youtube idea was a good idea. At least I will use it.
    The youtube grabber uses the film theme that isn't very pretty, it needs some improvements.
    This is the situation:
    There are a lot of videos that you like in youtube.
    You could download them but it seems more practical to bookmark them.
    The problem is that you don't get a preview.
    Avatar Factory will create a previews of your bookmarked youtube videos and when clicked they will use epiphany as a player. (no toolbar, and don't mess your firefox window size):



    Code:
    avatar-factory -g youtube folder/2/save
    The film grabber doesn't exist anymore the equivalent is:
    Code:
    avatar-factory -g imdb folder/2/save
    Something similar could be made for apple trailers using the dvd theme and mplayer.


    Cleaning up
    Te icons folder structure has been changed. You can remove the old icons with this command:
    Code:
    rm -r  ~/.avatar-factory/icons/
    And remove avatar-launcher:
    Code:
    sudo rm /usr/local/bin/avatar-launcher
    The changelog:
    Code:
    06.09.07------0.3.0
    	+added support for audacious
    	+added mocp-add (doesn't clear the playlist)
    	+added mpd-add (doesn't clear the playlist)
    	+added audacious-add (doesn't clear the playlist)
    	+added totem-add (doesn't clear the playlist)
    	+better support for unknown players
