CoverChooser is a small application, that searches albumart at the internet and downloads your choosen file.
Run CoverChooser and enjoy (Applications -> Accessoires -> CoverChooser).

By applying the script at a music-file (or a folder that contains music-files) the script will use the metadata to get the interpret/album-info. It saves the selected file into the selected folder. By applying on a folder which contains subfolders (.../interpret/Album), images of the artist will be fetched.
Metadata of the following filetypes will be automatically detected: mp3, ogg, flac, m4a, mpc

To use the Amazon webservice you will need a personally key. Get this key for free at http://aws.amazon.com/ and apply the key into the settings.

Recommended Installation (Debian/Ubuntu):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:panthora/coverchooser-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install coverchooser

that's it

Manual installation (Debian/Ubuntu):

Other Distros
Download the source tarball and read the readme file.

Using nautilus-actions instead of nautilus-script

 cryptic icons

What those cryptic-looking icons/buttons in the middle of the interface do? I also get no tool-tip hovering over them. :/ They seemed to do nothing when clicked...

Hi Goldencut,
you can manipulate the fetched images by using this buttons (excluding the "current").
The first four buttons are used to scale/crop the image to get a square. The two buttons on the right side are used to enhance the images. Here is what they exactly do:

1: Don't scale or crop the image.
2: Scale the image to a square.
3: Crop the image to a square.
4. Do some magic stuff to get a square ;-)
5: Make ugly scans some more brilliant (increase contrasts and saturation).
6: Create real B&W images from color-scans of B&W-Images (Desaturate).

Thanx, i'll try them out. New icons, using tool tips or names under icons could be not so bad idea. Or if i'm first to ask about them then maybe not. I should go and evolve then.

 Doesn't work!

I use CoverChooser for a lot of time now. I really like it and I appreciate your work. Thanks a lot!

Nevertheless the new version doesn't work for me: It just and simple doesn't connect to any server. The fields remain grey and display "timeout". I tried it with different Covers and via Nautilus Script, manually or via Drag'n'Drop.

This screenshot may describe the problem more precisely:


Thank you for having a look at it and again thank you for your work, P*

Hi Wanderfalke,

maybe you have a slow internet connection (WLAN or GSM/UMTS)...

Let's try to change the timeout:
Open a terminal and write:
coverchooser -gav --artist="amy winehouse" --timeout=60
(coverchooser --help will give you some info on what you are doing). When this helps, you can change the default value by editing the config file. Write in the terminal:
gedit ~/.coverchoose/coverchooser.conf
you will find the right entry :-)

Please let me know if this helps!

Hey, thanks for responding.

My internetconnection is a really fast one so I didn't expect this to work. Nevertheless I tried it and as supposed it didn't help.

But having an look in ~/.coverchooser showed me that

1st - the configuration file is coverchooser.cfg not coverchooser.conf Don't know whether this does make a difference.

2nd- The Albumcover I tried to fetch was stored in ~/.coverchooser/Temp named for example Discogs_1311691806.jpg (also Google and Discogs)

So the programm connects to the servers, downloads the images but doesn't display them in the GUI.

I thought about a conflict with the older version which I installed by downloading the .deb, but purge coverchosser, deleting ~/.coverchooser/ and reinstalling it didn't change anything.

My coverchooser.cfg looks like this:

preview_background = #ffffff
preview_size = 128
preview_size_fixed = false

allowed_filenames = folder.*, cover.*
square_mode = leave
filename = folder.*

module_amazon_key =

you're right. The filename is coverchooser.cfg, that was my mistake.

that is strange... could you please give me some more information according your system:

Which distro you are using? is it a beta? Maybe there are problems with new versions from dependencies...

Which Python version is installed on your system?
(call: python --version)

are there error messages in the terminal when you run Coverchooser in verbose mode?
(call: coverchooser -gav --artist="Bon Iver" --album="Bon Iver")

Until we find that bug, you could try to use the backend of coverchooser. Open the Nautilus-script file of coverchooser (call: sudo gedit ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/CoverChooser) and change the "-g" into a "-f" at line 22. It should say:
shell_cmd=["coverchooser", "-g", "--path="+file_or_dir]
After that use the nautilus-script and wait a few seconds to get the folder image stored inside that directory

I'm sure we'll get that fixed!

I'm running Ubuntu Natty 64bit

The Version of Python is 2.7.1+

When running the command you gave me it says:

Running "coverchooser" with the options ['-gav', '--artist=Bon Iver', '--album=Bon Iver'] in verbose mode.
The current settings are:
get all : True
preserve order : False
show gui : True
artist : Bon Iver
album : Bon Iver
modules : ['google', 'lastfm', 'wikipedia', 'discogs', 'amazon']
timeout : 30.0
wikipedia : No cover found
amazon : No key!
squaring mode: leave

 The "choose" button is sometimes inactive !

 by Bouddhid on: Jan 2 2013

Hello, I'm running Coverchooser under FEDORA 17 64 bits, with gnome3 (nautilus 3.4.2). It works great most of the time but sometimes for no reason it finds a good cover but I can't click on the "chosse" button.

I thought it could be a problem of permissions but after some searches it seems not to be the problem. Any idea ?

Hi Bouddhid, I'm replying to myself as I feel a little bit lonely here ;-).

The problem is solved changing the name of the folder : folders with strange names or too long ones may not be able to be "covered" with this problem of unactive choose button...

So : rename with a short name, cover it and then put back the long name you want ! That's all folks !
