Lyrics screenlet

   0.7.2  

Screenlet

Score 79%
Lyrics screenlet
zoom


Depends on  GTK 2.x
Downloads:  28967
Submitted:  Feb 3 2009
Updated:  Mar 30 2011

Description:

This screenlet downloads and display synchronized lyrics of music files playing in the audio player.

Version 0.7.0 allows to create and upload lyrics to the database (for some time it will be used for testing, but I'll try not to delete anything :P)
Steps to create synchronized lyrics:
  • find unsynchronized lyrics (later will be implemented by the screenlet itself)

  • drag&drop text or file with lyrics to screenlet

  • during playing song, use Space key to insert time info

  • save or upload lyrics before screenlet switch to another song :)


  • Requires:
    python-numpy can be needed on Ubuntu and possibly some other distributions in the case of crashing when you move cursor over control buttons
    python-chardet for better dealing with different lyrics encoding, but it's optional

    Set lyrics offset:
    by 0.1s: Shift+Up/Down key
    by 0.5s: Up/Down key

    Supported players:
    Rhythmbox
    Exaile
    Banshee
    Audacious
    Amarok
    Music Player Daemon based players
    Quodlibet - need to install plugin in package
    Listen 0.6 and higher
    Gmusicbrowser
    Xmms - need to install pyxmms
    Any other that support MPRIS API (direct or with plugin) - vlc, Songbird ...

    Supported lyrics sources: ALSong, minilyrics, lrcdb

    0.7.2
    - fixed bug in saving/restoring cairo state in LyricsPanel visible on default theme
    - searching lyrics on disk with ignoring case and accent and some bug fixes

    - reporting a missing lyrics to the database
    - creating synchronized lyrics works again

    0.6.9

    -lyrics translation on/off switch in menu
    -update translation settings immediately
    -safe minimizing (use when screenlet itself moves on desktop)
    -works in gnome 2.30 (bug is in pycairo, not screenlet!)
    0.6.8
    - lyrics searching bug fix, now it should really works, I promise :D

    try to monitor configuration file in ~/.config/Screenlets/Lyrics/ Check if this settings is written after you set them, after you quit screenlet and after restart, cause no such thing happens to me. And does it happen to other screenlets ? But during testing I found another issue, tray icon probably works only for me, cause I run it different way, so thanks :)

    I have this same (very frustrating) problem. ~/config/Screenlets/Lyrics/default/Lyrics1.ini is updated correctly when options are initially set, but reverts a few seconds after the screenlet is started again.

    It seems the problem can be worked around by editing the ~/.screenlets/config.ini file, but I don't know how this affects people using different rules for different screenlets.

    still it shouldn't be related to concrete screenlet. As I don't know what version do you use, my tip is this bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/screenlets/+bug/345359. I have installed version 0.1.2-7, that already has this fixed, but probably many distros use stable version, and this have this bug. If you don't know how to update for you distro, try replace file backend.py from http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4466860/backend.py (in my ubuntu it is in /usr/share/pyshared/screenlets, in my older mandriva in /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/screenlets). And don't forget on doing backup first.

    installing the 0.6.6 release didn't change the version number on right click/ properties

    not a real bug but i thought i should mention it
    ---------------

    by the way, is the tray icon going to include more info about the songs or is it just for minimizing?

    I wanted to quicky fix tray icon issue, so I forgot to update all details. And to 2nd question, I really don't know now, I didn't think about other usage.

    btw, how google translate work for you, did you noticed some change with 0.6.1 & > version ?

    just tried it with a japanese song and i'm getting only the japanese symbols. the translator only seems to work when the lyrics are written in latin letters (but then it just writes them a second time with a different font, since google translate probably can't understand romanji)

    yeah, when google translate didn't recognize correct language or don't know translate something, it return original or with some untranslated words. Until you get better result with direct use of google translate, it's not bug but expected behaviour :D

    what about nothing happening with Japanese symbols though? direct Google translate can give a translation - the screenlet just avoids them (symbols are not written a second time, only latin letters are)

     Downloading lyrics

    Hi there,

    I've been using this screenlet for a while now and it's awesome (since I got used to minilyrics on Windows). However, since a couple of days it seems unable to download any lyrics and only displays the lyrics that are saved on my harddrive from before. I'm on a campus so my computer is probably behind a proxy server, which might cause the problem. However, I never had any problems in the past. Do you have any ideas of what I could try to do to fix this? I've tried an older version, deleting all config files and all files a search brings up. (I've tried a lot of different songs, including Smells Like Teen Spirit, so popularity is not the issue.)

    I'll try at home this weekend to see if it's the campus' fault.

    Thanks for this awesome screenlet,
    Niels

    I tried one proxy and opps, it didn't work. In my case the reason was added symbol "/" at the end of proxy address, but in my previous testing it wasn't. Try this http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4466860/Lyrics_0.6.6_proxy.tar.gz, but it can be something different in your case, so the best will be run it throught terminal.

    There is definitely needed to write much better tests for searching on net, it's not the first time that it stopped work, mostly after my changes but sometimes I also wonder why. What was working yesterday, didn't work even for me at today's morning by listening fast.fm radio. I changed ALSong server and it again started to work, but now it is possible only in code, you can try it change in file ./Lyrics/lyricsengine/ALSong.py at line 173:
    "self.server = servers[1]" replace by "self.server = servers[0]"

    Hi there,

    This worked for me, thanks! It didn't work at home either with the old one by the way, so it's probably not a proxy problem.

    i edited the default icons through inkscape and these turned out

    i think that they appear better on dark desktops than the original ones - as they are mostly transparent with a light gradient style.

    Hello
    I've updated this screenlet from v 0.6.6 to the new one and I'm having some issues. There were songs which I could see their lyrics but now, with the update, I can't. By the way, there are song which hadn't lyrics before but now I can see them.
    It's strange but the old version was set by default and the newer one too.
    Is it only my problem or anybody has the same?

    PS: My english sucks but I hope you understand.
