Description:

you may think the first picture is familiar looking (and you are correct), that is the normal way noatun looks. the seoncd one is my idea of how it /should/ look. Is this even possible via a plugin? or would you have to patch the noatun code? it would use the folder.png specs from freedesktop. This is obivously gimpified so dont expect code from me... for a while at least :) (i'm a scripter, but will get dirty if someone says this is possible)

first shot is normal

second shot is gimped

third shot is my work in progress

ok decided to just port metz's work anyway (he wrote better code than me) i got it to compile by changing some 3.2 api calls with his help and i took out the configureable option in the plugin's config menu... i figured if you're taking the trouble to compile this against kde sources you must want it :) -- kde 3.2 will ahve the compiled option. i will upload code soon (i promise)

oh btw, metz's code was already submitted to cvs -- so you can consider my code a backport
----------
w00t! i got some code down now. i based it on a patch metz patched against KDE CVS -- which didn't compile (darn!). the code has some of it based on the XMMS Sensor Patch for karamba. after a couple hours of KDE/QT API Documentation reading, here is my new screenshot. i will upload code as soon as i clean it up (amd make it acctually work). the third screenshot on here is real -- no gimping, i promise. I would like to make the album/trackname unbold --but it looks as if i will have to make a custom widget. it's late now maybe tomorrow while i clean up code. oh and the artist/track/album are just hardcoded by me. i'm going to find a way to get them read, from a tag or whatever (like lucky tag reader or tag reader would tell me). until then, tell me what you think of my new ss. if you're a coder any idea to read the ID3 information would be nice :)

yeah, but instead of rewriting the id3 tagging i'd lke to use KDE's id3 tagging that is built int "kmetafileinfo" -- i'm not very good at c++, i'm relearning my C++ from windows and learning KDE/QT APIS... it's coming back to me :)

acctually, it looks as if the problem was not with how noatun read the id3, but with how my playlist (hayes) told noatun about the song playing :/ so id3 should already be interpreted by noatun, but the hayes playlist doesn't feed the correct title()... i'll look into the hayes playlist code to see if i can change that

you'll have to modify the young hickory plugin. You could also rig it into its own plugin, but I think the easiest way would be to just do it by means of young hickory.

Patches are accepted :)

Hey njærdy ;)

Hacked it up and will prolly commit this soon, maybe adding an option for the user first though.

so... i got the sources. i'm guessing the best way about doing this is to create a dialog that pops up instead of the tooltip. I was looking at the sources, because that's what i assumed it did. i just found setToolTip which seems to be apart of KDE or QT (sorry i am new to qt dev) any any suggestions?

The CVS versions of Kopete had an icon in the window like that a while ago. You could ask how they did it.

The xmmssensor (http://www.kdelook.org/content/show.php?content=5798)aramba patch does this I believe, so maybe you could look to see how they implemented it and work it into a plugin/patch for noatun.
