Minimum required   GTK 2.x
Downloads:  29217
Submitted:  Feb 3 2009

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




    Changelog:

    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
    - support of "offset" metadata in lyrics files
    - added settings option - format of filename for saving/loading lyrics with automatic

    0.7.0
    - added possibility to upload lyrics to the database and using this database for searching
    - reporting a missing lyrics to the database
    - creating synchronized lyrics works again

    0.6.9
    -lyrics align settings: left, center, right
    -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
    0.6.7

     A few small bugs

     
     by nielsavonds on: Mar 1 2010
     
    Score 50%

    Hi there,

    I've been using Lyrics screenlet for a while now and I absolutely love it! However, I've noted a couple of (very small) bugs:

    - If you are selecting Lyrics (with the arrows), double clicking the arrows will move 3 instead of 2. (The first single click moves 1, and then the second one is registered as a double click and moves another 2)
    - If you search for lyrics twice, it will say there's twice as much. E.g. I search and find 5, I search again and I find 10 (which is just the same 5 again, it should clear first and then search).
    - Selecting the Color Adaption option will crash the screenlet instantly with the following output in the terminal:

    Changed: colorAdaptation
    ImportError: No module named numpy.core.multiarray
    Segmentatiefout (Segmentation error)

    Thanks for making this screenlet!
    Niels

    Hi!,
    Maybe you forgot installing "python-numpy"?
    It is announced as a dependency for Lyrics Screenlet to work properly.

    Bye.

    and to make it complete, I also noticed skipping some lyrics by using arrow buttons but didn't know the reason. It's double/triple clicks as you wrote and it will be fixed in next version. And to multiple search issue, it's not even bug, I made it willfully this way, I didn't expect someone will try to search twice :P. And I still don't know what to do in such case, delete previous results or doesn't add the same lyrics. In both cases result should be the same, so why to do searching more times? And disable searching for second time isn't best idea either, cause network connection problem can occur anytime.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your replies. I installed Python-numpy and that did indeed fix the crashes, thanks!
    You're right about the double searching thing, it's hard to decide what to do. (It's easy to criticize things, but a lot harder to find a better solution ;) ) So perhaps leaving it this way is indeed the best.

    Thanks again for this awesome piece of software!

     That Screelet is really cool.

    But I got me some problems here as well.
    The Screenlet wanders around on the desktop after restarts.
    That means it's always somwhere else than where I left it after I reboot my computer.
    Until now I noticed that it only wanders on the x axis. And it seems the x coordinate is always 0'ed.
    I'm trying to work around the problem by chowning the file ~/.config/Screenlets/Lyrics/default/Lyrics1.ini and the Folder it lies in to root and give them a chmod of 644, respectively 755.
    But I don't know if this will work out as of now. I'll find out after the next reboot. And this is just a workaround. Someone should look at the problem itself. I'd do it myself, but I just speak PHP, german and some english. XD

    That's my minimizing algorithm :P, seems doesn't working well for everyone. It shrink(this needs resize and move) by location on desktop, but for unknown reason, something go wrong on some systems. Info about distribution, window manager, player could help. You could also try to allow tray icon in LyricsScreenlet settings, in this case it doesn't do resizing & moving.

    I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 (Gnome), with compiz and emerald. screenlets is the normal 0.1.2-7 version from the official repository. Player is Audacious (2.1-1) for the most time. My Resolution is 1920x1080.
    Here's my Lyrics1.ini as I've chowned/chmodded it. If I raise the strict access rules again and reboot, the x axis setting would be changed again:
    http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=AAANFvVQ

    I don't want to use the tray icon. I'm a bit minimalistic with them (bad trauma because of the crammed system tray in WinXP back then...).

    The chown/chmod workaround "fixes" it, btw. No negative side effects, apart from not being able to change settings live of course.

    I added "safe minimize" without real resizing & moving and few other improvements. But as I don't want to release such testing releases no more, here is link http://lyrics-screenlet.googlecode.com/files/Lyrics_0.6.9.tar.gz

     Text align?

    Since this screenlet supports LastFM I use it everyday... and love it!
    And I've got another request: Is there any way of aligning the text to the right or left instead of being always centered? Is it already there but I missed it? I would really appreciate this option... :)

    i don't know if people started adding Indica lyrics lately or if the last release added some rather cool source of lyrics, but i get at least half as many "lyrics not found" now

    if it's the last one, Many thanks :)

    by the way, is there any way to make google translate not return the results if they are of the same languange as the first text?
    or make it possible to have just google translate running? (so i can i have a second lyrics screenlet i will quit/start whenever i want to listen to non-english songs)

    I added translation on/off switch to context menu and translation settings works now immediately, not from next song as before. Maybe better will be add some controls directly to the panel, but u know, another icons, code, ... (more work :P).
    As I already wrote in comments above, no more unstable releases, so here is testing one http://lyrics-screenlet.googlecode.com/files/Lyrics_0.6.9.tar.gz

    will you post the testing releases on googlecode? i subscribed via rss there to keep on the bleeding edge and provide some feedback in case something goes wrong

    anyway, i will start testing the 0.6.9 version now

    at least for some time, yes. At first I wanted only use subversion control, but probably I'll continue in uploading whole archive for easier download.
    Even today after upload on googlecode I found (and fix) one problem in changes I've made. And this happens often to me, mainly cause it's coded in python. So it's better let such version test properly before official releases. And sometimes someone ask for some feature, but making new versions after every request isn't good.

    Screenlet doesn't support uploading lyrics to any server yet. At first I thought that I'll add upload to lrcdb server, but it doesn't work for a long time and maybe it will never work again. And rest servers isn't very open, so I don't know either. I would like to do it, but I haven't resources.
