Description:

Amarok XML LCD is a ruby script that enables data from Amarok to be displayed on an LCD screen using LCDproc, the LCD daemon. More information on LCDproc can be found at:http://lcdproc.omnipotent.net

The script initialises several different screens that represent different states of the Amarok engine and displays these screens on the LCD. Each of the screens are fully user configurable; using a simple XML configuration file the user can add new widgets of their choice.

Along with widgets the user also has access to a host of Amarok DCOP commands that allow data to be retrieved from the Amarok engine.

Do you have any other clients connected to the LCDproc server?

If so, which?

I think the problem you may be having here is caused by another client blocking the socket connection to the server...

The script should open the socket in no_block mode allowing other connections to be made.

If you could confirm it would be greatly appreiciated.

First, sorry.
Next time i will read the doc before:-)
I think was a permission problem
(the LCDd is installed in /sbin) and I had not changed the configuration file.
Now it works, more or less.
But if I use the curses driver I have an error spamming the screen and (still don't know why) i'm not able to use xosd driver.
But for now I think is more a LCD configuration problem.
Anyway, I will try different drivers.
Thanks for the script
