amaroKopete script changes Kopete global nickname with a customized name based on current song information.
The customized nickname is built with a variables set that contains the information about the current song. For example:
Pattern: "Now I'm listening %t by %a, track number %b in %m (%y)"
Nick: "Now I'm listening Yesterday by The Beatles, track number 13 in Help! (1965)"
The available variables set is:
%a -> Artist name
%t -> Title name
%n -> Now Playing (same as '%a - %t')
%m -> Album name
%g -> Genre
%y -> Year
%b -> Track number
%d -> Song duration
Note: This script changes only the nickname and (optionally) the photo, but doesn't change the away status or away message, if you want to change those items use "Kopete Now Listening for Amarok" or "kopete msn message notifier", also available in kde-apps.
