@snack, OMG so complicated.. tried to create such file but still not works. BTW I want Amarok to just show lyrics and wikipedia articles of currently playing song like it works in kde4. Is it connected with scripts functionality?

snack commented on 2019-09-15 10:03

@Tyomix sorry, I forgot to say that scripts needs to be ported. If you start amarok from command line with --debug option you will probably see some error message like:

[ERROR__] [ScriptManager] script.json for "/home/mori/.local/share/amarok/scripts/BurnPlaylist/main.js" is missing!

You need to produce a script.json file like this:

"KPlugin": {
"Category": "Scriptable Service",
"Id": "BurnPlayList",
"Version": "1.0.1",
"Dependencies": ["Amarok2.0"],
"EnabledByDefault": "true"

in order for the script to be loaded. More porting is likely necessary, depending on the content of the script itself. I am not an expert but I can try to provide some assistance if needed. Please move this discussion to the amarok-scripting page.

@snack I've installed your package "amarok-scripting" instead of this one, but still get empty scripts window. Tried to install some scripts via KDE store ("Manage scripts") and "Local script". How to fix?

Thanks @snack. I'll check it out and report on that page. Cheers.

I've been able to restore the scripting functionality, at least partially (i.e. my script now works). I have uploaded a new AUR package amarok-scripting, try it if you need scripting.

For those complaining about scripts: they do not work because the QtScript support has been removed, probably due to the fact that QtScript is deprecated in Qt5 and will probably be removed in Qt6. I've been able to revert the modification and the script engine works again (since QtScript is still available in Qt5 for backwards compatibility). However the Qt bindings previously provided by qtscriptgenerator are no longer available, so all the scripts making use of Qt classes will not work.

FWIW I also can't seem to get scripts working, nor scrobbling. I tried to install some lyrics scripts via the "Manage Scripts" button. These installed, but didn't show up in the main scripts list.

EtiennePerot commented on 2019-05-06 20:49 scrobbling doesn't appear to be working. I have liblastfm-qt5 installed but there is simply no more setting in Amarok's settings about this. Is the library not being detected as installed?

Just to ask...scripts...they are working? I can't see SOMA FM or COOL STREAMS in the internet list, in fact I only have GPODDER, MAGNATUNE and PODCAST DIRECTORY. Can you confirm this?

I have this very annoying bug that I cannot use the "Organize Files" feature. When I select to move the files, the new window that opens is very small. I can resize the window, however, the content stays very small which makes it unusable.

I have the problem since I switched to the AUR version, not since the last update. Does anybody else have the problem, and much more important, does somebody have a workaround for it? I tried to use TAB to manipulate the required fields, but didn't succeed.

Here you can see the resized window: Here you can see how it looks when I open the Options:
