This looks very promising, however it fails to build for me. I'm running Slackware Linux 10.0 with KDE 3.3, TagLib 1.3, and MusicBrainz Client Library 2.1.1.


Compilation fails with the following errors:



ktag.cpp: In member function `void Ktag::mbSearch()':
ktag.cpp:218: error: no matching function for call to `MusicBrainzQuery::

Your app is really cool, but unfortunately I can't use it (only because I need the Musicbrainz function - see below).

I'm using Mandrake 10.1 (Cooker), so I may be asking for trouble, anyway...

If I install the RPMs, Ktag crashes (bringing up a Kcrash window) when I try to save a file. The Musicbrainz and Download Album Cover functions works well, however.

If I compile from source, Ktag allows me to save, but when I try to do a Musicbrainz search, the program just exits when successfully finding information (it doesn't if Musicbrainz nothing).

Here's the console output when I do a Musibrainz search:

ktag: Adding new tab
ktag: Generation finished 8eacef15-1686-434f-bcd9-218934a7c3d4
ktag: 3 entrie(s) in query result.

an then *poof* the window closes. No crash message, no segmentation fault message...I press a key and I'm back to the prompt...

Anyway, it looks like a very promising app that deserves a higher score. I'll vote for you for sure, and try to install it again in the future.

This tools is looking very promising. I have few comments:
- %Artist, %Title, etc (meaning that first letter should be upper) should lower the case of the rest of letters, currently strings like "ENIGMA" (all uppercase) would still be the same with %Artist variable. IMHO it should change it to "Enigma". The same is for automatic changing case of letters in tags. Maybe %ARTIST, etc vars should be introduced.
- ability for setting comment for all opened files would be very useful.
- I can't find any way to close all opened files except closing each tab one by one, or closing whole ktag, and reopening it with different set of files. File/Close and File/Close all would be nice thing to have.
- configure script don't stop and warn when it can't find taglib or musicbrainz files, and Ktag fails to compile without any of them installed.

I like the ability to find covers for albums!

- You are right, i'll add %ARTIST, etc...
- Right too, i'll add an entry in the album menu
- it's normal from musicbrainz (Ktag can work without) but not for taglib, i'll correct this quickly.
Thank for your comments, they give me pleasure to continue on Ktag ;)

Hi, I haven't still tried it out, but I was wondering if it had the ability to change tags massively, an ability found in a little gtk app I'm "forced" to use on my KDE: easytag.

With easytag, given a dir full of mp3's, I can easy setup, say, a default comment tag to be applied to all of the files selected.

If it's not so, it would be cool to implement that for a kde app

nice interface anyway :-)

it's available in the album menu for Album/Artist/Genre/Year, this will set the current value for all opened files.

Hi there,

tried to explain this issue to the krename guy but he couldn't get the Win progs to run.

I would love to see a feature which could contact the freedb and update my album dir tags/filenames according to my preferred schema... For a detailed description of what i wanted to see:
http://www.kbarcode.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=91

If you could manage to do that, you'd be the bomb!

I'll have a look on the libcddb api doc to see if i can do something with it, it could be interesting for adding entries in the different combobox.
Thank's for the idea ;)

You're welcome. :-) Thats what the community is for...

BTW, are you building this as a kpart? This could be included in a bunch of apps to enhance there functionality.

Maybe this site is better because it can recognise seperate mp3 ogg files.
(that is what they say).
And they include gpl software to do so.

CDDB is not very usefull without the CD id, MusicBrainz is more adapted for this so for now i use it but i continue to look at the CDDB use.
I'll will also look for the benefits of making Ktag as a kpart, so wai and see ;)

You should probably move this to kde-apps.org

Just log in there, edit it, and change its category to one of its multimedia tool things.

it's on kde-apps that i've add this and not on kde-look, but i've choose kde improvement and that's why it appears on kde-look.
I don't see in which category i can put it, cause i don't think that Multimedia/Sound correspond to my apps (it's not a sound player/processor/editor).
