Lyrics screenlet

   0.7.2  

Screenlet

Score 79%
Lyrics screenlet
zoom


Minimum required   GTK 2.x
Downloads:  29158
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




    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
    conversion between them
    - properties window works with newer screenlets package version

    0.7.1
    - fixed accessing of the song info metadata - doesn't crash on missing metadata
    - works with a new gtk version (deprecation warning turned into TypeError)
    - fixed bug in saving/restoring cairo context (in Widget and LyricsPanel classes)

    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
    - update of lyrics engine: ALSong now work again (it stopped to work at all after they changed ip address), minilyrics has better encoding handling
    - theme update

    I'm sorry if someone already said something abt this and you said a fix.. but 13 page sis alot to sift through for me atm but, everytime a new song comes on i have to pause it and start it to get teh lyrics to work... when teh song comes on the lyrics show but then quickly disappear. They only come back when I pause and play. also it seems to be posting lyrics twice

    here's what i mean if what im saying doesnt make sense:

    to 1st issue, what player do you use ? I know about Exaile player with mpris plugin to behave not always properly on song change. Try different player to determine problem.
    to 2nd, you must have turned on google translate and target language must be english, or it returned original. For easier manipulation with translation, you can try testing version 0.6.9, there are some links on page 12 :P

    Heh it was the google translate.. i feel retarded :o and I havent had the issue with it not showing the lyrics so maybe it was a one time thing.

    I HAVE noticed that when I try to do thge "Inverse" color option the whole window disappears and I basically have to reinstall the screenlet to get anything with it to work again, also it seems to not like when my computer goes into screensaver, it like locks to teh background and is very hard to find the spot to rightclick and edit/move

    to make work color adaptation, you must probably install python-numpy. It's needed on some distributions and I should update info on page for this. If you don't want to install it and want revert settings back without reinstall, delete files in ~/.config/Screenlets/Lyrics

    Hi there

    Same problem for me, upgraded to 2.30 on Arch64 today and the lyrics screenlet doesn't work. It is loaded and i can access its settings but it remains invisible/transparent on my Desktop regardless what I try. Any particular changes in GNOME from 2.28 to .30 caused this ? The other screenlets work as expected.

    Best Regards

    I've tried relentlessly to force keep_above to false, chowning to root, chmodding to 444, but it always manages to get changed back to true. Is there any way to fix this before I screenshot the screenlet, print it, and use it for target practice?

    all I can do is to redirect you to page 11 in comments. It's functionality of screenlets itself, not lyrics screenlet.

    my favorite screenlet of all time. And it keeps getting better and more refined.
    Really great work.

    Are you planning to port this to Universal Applets, since Screenlets is apparently no longer being maintained?
    I certainly hope you are able to do that without too much trouble. Also wish you luck with the problem with GNOME 2.30, hope you are able to work around it.

    Wishing you all the best.
    Thanks

    Yeah, Screenlets are old and unsupported, but still heavy used. Port to Universal Applets is possible step, but not enough requests came so far :P

    It's just that no one's really sure how much longer Screenlets will continue to be in the repos, especially since GNOME 3.0 is around the corner.
    What's the likelihood that GNOME 3.0 will break the Screenlets framework or at least some of its functionality? Given that Uni Applets is currently active, I'd guess that it could work better with GNOME 3.
    Given that the only two screenlets I use now are Lyrics and Impulse, I'd love to see these two ported over to Uni Applets.
    I think though that Uni Applets won't be too different from Screenlets, so most Screenlets will probably work just as well in Universal Applets.

    PS: nice job with 0.6.9, the safe minimize feature is neat.
    Thanks.

    I will need some info:
    do you use proxy? with password? (I have some arrears here)
    what music format files do you use? Is metadata set right?

    Or give me output from terminal by running: python ~/.screenlets/Lyrics/LyricsScreenlet.py

    it seems like not related to the lyrics screenlet, it's D-Bus problem. Also I noticed that you run it as root. When I run it as root, it also crash, but with different problem. But try it run as normal user. If it doesn't help, find something about dbus configuration and try to fix it. Or just update to new distro. Btw, what distro do you use ?

    I don't exactly know what you mean, but info about song is added only when lyrics first line doesn't starts from begining (0s). Sometimes people write this info into lyrics, so it can look different. And some lyrics doesn't fit cause the same song can have more versions or just someone did bad job. Thats why you can search for more lyrics and choose best for you (and save).
