Thread: Amarok

  1. #1

    Default Amarok

    Having problems with Amarok/opensuse.

    There is shortcut settings in Amarok where you can change forward/backward settings to 60/10/2 seconds, in global settings what is define by opensuse you can change only 10 seconds. Is there any possibility to adjust, change or add in global settings what is define by opensuse entry which will allow me to make global settings with 2 seconds forward/backward. I tried to change add entry in /home/homeuser/.kde4/share/config/kglobalshortcutscr file with

    seek_backward_short=bind, Seek by 2 seconds

    Its start to show in global settings but wont work for me.

    Will be glad if someone could help me.

    ty.

    Well the "global shortcuts" are _not_ some global system or openSUSE thing, but are defined by Amarok as well.
    An application tells the system which global shortcuts it supports.
    You can see in Amarok's shortcut settings (Settings->Configure Shortcuts), which shortcuts can be made global and which not, and also set the global shortcuts there.

    You should probably ask the Amarok developers to add further shortcuts.
    Maybe ask in the Amarok forum, or file a bug report:

    Of course not.
    You cannot create arbitrary "global shortcuts" like that.
    How should KDE (or Amarok) know what to do in that case?

    You can control Amarok via D-BUS though (which allows you to make arbitrary seeks), and KDE does allow (global) shortcuts to call custom D-BUS commands.
    But AFAICS you can only seek to an absolute position or a relative one specified by a percentage of the song's length that way. It doesn't seem to be possible to skip a certain amount of seconds.
