AmarokFS Theme for Sabayon GNU/Linux

Postby teom » Sun Feb 18, 2007 0:55

AmarokFS is an app now available in portage that gives you a full screen interface for Amarok, great for parties or instead of a screensaver.

Unfortunately all the themes I found had blue or gray buttons and didn't show things exactly as I wanted so I created a theme using one of the default themes as the starting point.
The result is a theme with orange buttons that don't look silly with the orange progress bar of the default Sabayon KDE theme.

As soon as the devs settle for a new logo without the chicken foot I might add a Sabayon logo in the background.

Where could I get official hi-res versions of all those chicken feet and basic graphic elements? I could try adding the current logo after all, even though I'm not really skilled in GIMP.

The ability to add images that are not cd covers is not themable but hard-coded, I'd have to patch the very AmarokFS code but that would make it difficult for people to install the theme. It makes sense only if we are going to integrate in the next SL. Otherwise I guess I should contact the author about including the patch in the main branch.

You can find amarokfs in portage, just emerge it, then extract my theme and open the xml from amarokfs

OK, I've looked in Kuroo and it doesn't seem to be there at all ... am I missing something about Kuroo here, or what commands can I use? Being from an Ubuntu/Debain background, I am totally unaware of anything Gentoo-based.

Open a Konsole, then su
# emerge --sync
# emerge portage
# etc-update
# emerge amarokfs
and that's it.
