Local Lyrics is a python based amaroK-script requires amaroK 1.4!

I wrote simple wrappers for dcop-calls (using the shell-tool dcop), kdialog and amaroK's script system while writing this script. Use them if you want (it's all LGPL) See the .tar.bz2's contense and: http://twoday.tuwien.ac.at/pub/stories/22759/

This lyrics-plugin simply scan's a selected folder for textfiles with lyrics. This might be usefull when you have a lot of lyrics stored on your harddisc, but they are not available on lyrc.com.ar or a simmilar service.


Open the lyrics-filesystem-x.x.amarokscript.tar.bz2 with amaroKs script managers script install option.


Start the script with amaroKs script manager.
Select the directory in which the lyrics are stored.
The filenames of the lyrics have to be:

"artist - title.txt"

Now amaroK will search this folder for lyrics, when there are none in it's database for the current track.


amaroK 1.4

What's New in This Release:

Extension type of the lyrics file will be ignored. (.txt is no longer a must)

In amarok.py:
Bugfix: customMenuClicked was not called
ADD: Plugin.addCustomMenue and Plugin.removeCustomMenue. use this so the plugin will automatically delete custom menues at exit.
ADD: exit-handler which captures the SIGTERM signal. just overload the exit-method. custom menues will be deleted automatically!
