Kirocker Music Display 4.0

An Amaork script that makes your Kicker rock with your music
Kirocker Music Display is an Amaork script that makes your Kicker (the KDE main panel) rock with your music.

It is a Kicker applet that displays what you listen to in Amarok

You then always know what you are listening to, and watch its cover: it is always visible on your panel.
It allows you to rate your music with one click: you can quickly change the number of stars of your musics from anywhere on your desktop.

To install:
- Extract the archive
- Open a konsole in the extracted folder (in Konqueror, go to the extracted folder and press F4)
- Run this set of command: ./configure --prefix=$(kde-config --prefix) && make && sudo make install
- It will ask your root password to install the applet on your system
- Right click the Kicker, choose "Add an Applet to the Panel..." (once the panel is unlocked)
- Double-click "Kirocker Music Display"
- Start playing a music: the applet is empty when Amarok is stopped or paused, to not annoy you with useless information when you are working

Also included in the package: the Kicker right translucent white background.

How to make the kicker translucent:
- Your screen resolution need to be 1280*800. If not, you will need some artistic skills and a Gimp experience to modify the given background
- Extract the image "Kicker Right Translucent Background.png" located in the Kirocker Music Display archive
- Open your desktop background image with The Gimp
- Drag and drop "Kicker Right Translucent Background.png" to the Gimp window of your background image
- Save the image and set it as your desktop background image
- Right click the Kicker and choose "Configure the Panel..." (once the panel is unlocked)
- Place the panel on the right (click the button on the right)
- Set the size to "Personalized" and enter "96 pixels"
- In the "Appearance" tab, check "Enable transparency"
- Click "Ok" and you're done: ENJOY!

What's New in This Release:
  • Theme support with wonderful ones provided by default and a graphical editor that is both powerful and surprisingly easy to use
  • Have fun karaokees with automatically-scrolling lyrics
  • Added a better no-cover image, from Oxygen (sorry guys, but it's the only beautiful and scalable image I found)
  • Now using the "Track, Artist, Album" order (instead of "Artist, Album, Track") to be more complient with other displays, such as iPod, Last.fm, and even Amarok.
