Description:

Plugin for KDE file managers (Dolphin and Konqueror) to preview cover arts embedded in Audio (MP3, FLAC) file tags as Thumbnails.
Tested with KDE4.3. Needs taglib(-devel) and flac++(-devel) for compiling.
If you want add images to your audio files, you can use Kid3 (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php/Kid3?content=10415).

Hi,

I've ran into the same issue on Debian Stable (KDE) and managed to solve it by installing the following package: kdelibs5-dev

I don't know what GUI front-end Kubuntu uses to install packages, but the easiest is probably in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install kdelibs5-dev

After this, just try again building it...

Hope that helps,

Cheers

I discovered today that I can't preview FLAC files with AudioThumbs. I made sure I have all the FLAC dependencies and to the best I can tell I have them all, and when I rebuilt the file from a fresh extraction from the tarball I didn't get any errors, but I can't preview FLAC files like I can for MP3s and OGGs.

I recently rebuilt my LMDE + KDE laptop and tried to install this again but ran into a brick wall looking for taglib-extras-dev. After a mess of searching I discovered there's now a package in the Linux Mint Debian Edition repos called libtag-extras-dev which allowed me to install AudioThumbs. If anyone else has a problem with dependency hell like I did try looking for the alternate package name.

In my opinion filetype icon should be less transparent. Now it's hard to differ an audio file from the cover image file.

Anyways, thanks for caring about this, something Dolphin devs already should have taken care of *cof*

It would be great, if you added support for cover art embedded in ogg files, as kid3 is now able to write them (in svn)

Thanks :D

Thank you for this wonderful enhancement to KDE4.

It is people like you that make KDE what it is: the world's most advanced platform (not desktop environment anymore (: )

Now, i only have a suggestion: Is it possible to make shadows arround the music previews (something like the picture previews)?

Probably You doesn't have necessary packages: gcc, libkde4-devel.

That would be great if we could differentiate music from pictures (except the shade around). Adding a cdbox a la avatar-factory e.g.
That wouldn't be the best idea though.

Thanks anyway!
