How can I enlarge the background? When I have long song/album titles it becomes messy. Thanks for all the great work on this!

Hey I was wondering where you got the images for the vinyl theme from. Or did you make them yourself? I think the "No Cover" image is a little bland, and I'm seeing it a lot because I've got lots of obscure internet rips and unreleased remixes.

I'd like to change it so that it shows the LP beneath it. I tried using the noSong image, but it's very difficult because the sizes of the LPs don't quite match and it has a transparent layer of gray over it.

Any help would be appreciated. Other than that, this is a great utility. Keep up the good work.

you can rename the nocover to nosong and it will show the other then, you need to modify the xml a bit to get it to the right position...

Tell me if you don't get it ;)

Hey, im trying to get the covers to work with exaile 0.3.0.1, i created a dbus function in exaile to return the cover path, and it does actually return the cover path in the form of: file:///file/here
But the problem is... CoverGloobus doesn't show the cover anyway... Could that be because CoverGloobus can't handle file:// ?

lyricwiki.org now diverts to [link]. it keeps the same format of artist:track_name etc but i can't get it to work with covergloobus :(

Also to people who don't know how to close covergloobus - just click on it and then hit ALT+Q. :)

Excuse me, but I want to know, How can I modify the lyrics source ?, becouse, I listen BM, Goth, Dark, etc, so that's pretty under ground and the current source don't works for me, I want to change it by darklyrics.com or something like that.

Thanks.

It's a little complicated, it needs to load the specific adress depending on the artist and song title and then find the specific part of the page where the lyric is. There is the lyric.py where the code is.

No luck, I'm afraid. Tried that before along with something that was suggested on a Ubuntu blog, pressing space twice I think it was.

I just downloaded it again and tested pressing ESC, but still no luck. Also, the rating stars don't seem to work when I click on them, but maybe that has to be done in the player itself and isn't a feature of covergloobus?

about ESC maybe I've it in my version but I haven't uploaded it yet, about the starts in covergloobus, it just shows them, no option to controll them (By now!!)

Are those another players? As long as they have dbus or comand line interface to controll them the plugins can be easily developed!

I tried the themes you gave me and them all worked without any problem with covergloobus

To install them just copy the folders into covergloobus/themes, then launch covergloobus-config.py and select the desired theme.

After it, you can run covergloobus and you'll notice the changes!!

Yes it does!
I'm going to download that theme and modify it to work with covergloobus!

I'll notice you once I get it!

Or if you wanna try to do it you'll be my hero!

This looks like an awesome program. I'm having a bit of difficulty getting it to run though.

I'm fairly new to Linux, so that may be the cause.

I'm trying to get CoverGloobus to work with Songbird with the dirty theme.

As you can see in this screenshot, all I'm getting is the controls. [link]

Here's my songbird version: Version: Songbird 1.1.2, Build 1042 (20090331141709)

This should be the newest version of Songbird being that I installed it yesterday.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

:iconjordihp:
JordiHP Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Songbird doesn't support dbus so good, so the plugin is still not working, it may be confusing that is included in the package but I'm sorry to say that is not working, by the way, why don't you use banshee? I think is much more better than songbird, now they've just released 1.5 version that runs pretty well!

I switched to Banshee and CoverGloobus works without any problem. I like it better than Songbird anyway. :P

This is an absolutely wonderful program. Exactly what I was looking for.

This is not a screenlet!! :D it doesn't need an installer, just unpack it and double-click CoverGloobus.py

If you wanna configure some things, double-click CoverGloobus-config.py

I hope it helps!
