KMK is a KDE music cataloger software.
KMK is a tool for Linux/KDE 3, aimed at allowing fast searches through big amounts of supported audio files (as of KMK 0.23.5 mp3, ogg, ape), and providing the necessary tools for managing their names and tags - tool to convert tags to filename and one for filling file tags, based on its name.
KMK 0.23.14 added drag support to the table, for expample, allowing you to find all files with specific Artist tag and drop them in K3B. To actually play something it uses the XMMS player, but changes to this are planned. The path to the xmms binary is hardcoded in the sources to "/usr/sbin/xmms", but that is going to change - this is a temporary solution. KMK stores the catalog in XML-formatted file, which should allow different versions to use one and same catalog saved earlier. But binary catalog file format is considered for speed improvement - the XML implementation used is somehow slow in the presence of lots and lots of data to store.
Because KMK is still in very early development phase, there are a lot of things to be done, and not everything works as expected. But this shouldn't scare you - if you need such a tool, please, give KMK a try and e-mail me your thoughts about it! I would like to note that during the development every effort to guarantee that KMK does not change any of your files against your will is made. The feedback you provide will be greatly appreciated!
