It seems all links on this page to the downloads and such are dead. I have found the new project page:

http://www.unrealvoodoo.org/hiteck/projects/albumart/

Meanwhile the version is also changed to 1.6.6, released in August 2008.

Hopefully the author can change it here officially.

I'm putting in my proxy server info and I am still not able to get out to the internet through ACAD 1.60. Is there a workaround or something that I could do to have it bring up a window to allow me to login to the Proxy?

-Thanks In Advance!

Nice work. Did you consider making support for amarok's database? It would be GREAT to edit covers from it's database with your app. Really think about it.

This would be really easy The only thing required would be save the file with filename as md5( artist, album ), in the $HOME/.kde/share/apps/amarok/albumcovers/large directory, a 100px version and 50px version. Precede the file name with 100@ or 50@ respectively. Save theme here: albumcovers/cache/

Hi,

I'm getting this error when running it:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/albumart-qt", line 145, in ?
sys.exit(runGui())
File "/usr/bin/albumart-qt", line 77, in runGui
import albumart_dialog
File "/usr/lib/albumart/albumart_dialog.py", line 23, in ?
import Image
ImportError: No module named Image

Where can I find the missing module?

Looks like you're missing the Python Imaging Library. You can get it at http://www.pythonware.com/products/pil/

Each time when I found a cover and try to save it (pressing button "Set as cover") I get an error message: "The following error occured while setting the cover image: _defaults"

The easy way to get around this is to upgrade to Python 2.3. This will be fixed for Python 2.2 in the next release.

...isn't there a possibility to use relative Paths in the .directory files? If not, there should be something like "update folders", otherwise if you move a folder your cover will no longer be shown as folder icon. Additionaly the images are not shown in smb-shares.

Further I would suggest to implement a function to search for/use own images because as it seems, amazon is not up to date with all covers. (i know you can do all that manually by editing your .directory file and copy your cover image to .folder.png but that's kind of lame :-D )

My friend has made a script for me, which scans folders, checking whether there is an image file, and if there is, renaming it in .folder.png, and creating .directory file. It is a great addition for Album art downloader

Easy, clean, functional. No problem setting up from source under debian unstable.

I had never associated an image with a folder. This app made it so easy that now my music collection folder looks like a photo album ;-)

Would be nice if it could be configured to integrate into kde. Currently uses the QT file-dialog.

When running albumart-qt after installing the .deb i get this:


Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/albumart-qt", line 40, in ?
import Image
ImportError: No module named Image


What package am I missing and why isn't it required by the deb?
