Good Morning 0.1 (Amarok 2.0 Script)

Sun, 2015/03/08 - 9:57am
ThumbnailGood Morning 0.1
(Amarok 2.0 Script)
This is an alarm script for Amarok.

You can schedule an alarm for every day of the week.
Once the alarm script is enabled, it remains enabled, even after Amarok restarts.
The script will be disabled only when you manually disable it.

The configuration of the script is saved each time enable/disable is clicked.

Wake up time
  • Usually
    This is where you schedule alarm time for every day. If the day is not
    checked, no alarm is scheduled.

  • Exceptionnally
    You can setup a "one-shot" exception: the script will ignore every
    scheduled alarm and wake you up at the time specified. After the exception
    happens, it is automatically disabled, and the script goes back to the
    "usual" alarms.

  • Music
  • Track
    You can decide which track should be played:
    - First: first track of the playlist.
    - Next: next track relative to current.
    - Last: last track of playlist.
    If unchecked, script will play the current track.

  • Progression
    You can set the track progression. This will change the track progression
    setting of the playlist.
    If unchecked, the current track progression is used.

  • Volume
  • Volume
    Let you decide which volume should be used when playback starts.
    If unchecked, current volume is used.

  • Fade-in
    Decide if you want any fade-in, and how long it should last.
    If unchecked, no fade-in.

  • Computer
  • In case your computer will be suspended to RAM at the alarm time, you must
    check this box. This will schedule a wake-up of the computer through the RTC.
    You must specify the path of the shell script that will do this action.
    Two scripts are provided for that (see below).

  • About the wake-up computer feature
    1. Get it to work
    For this feature to work, a few things needs to be done:
  • Install the rtcwake package.

  • Configure it so that you can run it without root permission.
    There's two main ways to achieve that:
    - You can do that by configuring your sudoer file.
    In this case, the rtcwake script to be used is
    - You can also setuid the rtcwake binary.
    In this case, the rtcwake script to be used is
    - Maybe it's possible to do that another way.
    In this case, you also need to write your own rtcwake script.

  • At last, test it once to see how it goes.

  • 2. If you want to test it
    rtcwake will schedule the wakeup of your computer ONE MINUTE before the alarm time.
    So, if you're just trying the script and want to see if rtcwake works, give it
    at least two minutes, so that you have time to suspend your computer before
    the RTC tries to wake it up.

    3. Suspended to disk
    For this to work, you need a little bit of setup:
  • Be sure that you have a swap partition, check that in /etc/fstab.

  • Assuming that your swap lives on /dev/sdaX, add the following parameter to your
    kernel parameters: "resume=/dev/sdaX".
    If your bootloader is GRUB2, you need to edit the file /etc/default/grub.

  • 4. About dual-boot GNU/Linux - Windows
    The RTC (Real-Time Clock) is a hardware clock that keeps time on your computer
    when it's off.
    With rtcwake, we can ask the RTC to wakeup computer at a given date and time.
    Usually, GNU/Linux keeps the RTC in UTC time, while Windows keeps it in local time.
    GNU/Linux is able to detect that, this information is written in /etc/adjtime.
    So, if you have a dual-boot GNU/Linux and Windows, everything should be fine.
    But I never tested it, so I can't promise anything !
    If you're local timezone is, let's say, 2 hours ahead of UTC, and you notice that
    the computer is awakened 2 hours ahead the time it should, you know you've got a
    problem with RTC.

    5. Daylight saving changes
    The two days of the year when daylight saving changes should cause no problem
    to the script.

    Good Night 0.2 (Amarok 2.0 Script)

    Sun, 2015/03/08 - 9:56am
    ThumbnailGood Night 0.2
    (Amarok 2.0 Script)
    This is a sleep script for Amarok.

    With it, you can schedule to stop the music and your computer
    at a given time.

    The configuration of the script is saved each time enable/disable is clicked.

    You have several options to decide when the script should act.
    You can also set a fade-out to end the music smoothly.

    When the time comes, the script can quit Amarok, and/or suspend/shutdown the
    computer. In this case, OSD messages will be displayed for 30 seconds, so that
    you have time to cancel the action if you're still in front of the computer.

    There's an additional option to turn off the screen when the script is enabled.

    If suspending is not supported, a warning message is displayed in the GUI.

    Strongly inspired from the Sleepy Amarok script:

    Inputmangler is a daemon that intercepts and transforms linux input events, depending on the active window.
    It aims to be highly configurable, reliable and not too hard to use. You can use it to remap those extra mouse buttons, properly utilize a footswitch or even remap your second keyboard to trigger all kinds of shortcuts! If you are left-handed, you can switch left and right mouse buttons for applications that ignore your Desktops settings (like dosbox and fs-uae). And you can have a different configuration for each window!
    It is also capable of translating Text from the network to key presses.


    * Basic Macro Support
    * Minor documentation improvements.


    * Full support for relative movements (e.g. mouse wheel)
    * Passing through of absolute movements (-> joystick & tablet support)
    * New xml parsing code now gives warning messages on some configuration errors (i simply *had* to do this after spending another 2 hours searching for a bug in the source code that was caused by nothing more than a missing '/' in the config file)
    * Support for multiple identical devices with different configurations (through phys property)
    * Fixed some minor bugs in kernel module
    * 2 New d-bus slots
    * Internal changes

    This plasmoid shows the last nzbs that you downloaded via sabnzbd; failed downloads are highlighted differently than successful downloads.

    To set the plasmoid up, you'll need
    * the host name where sabnzbd is running (i.e.
    * the port that sabnzbd uses (default is 8080)
    * the webapi key that is generated by sabnzbd (you'll get from sabnzb's settings).

    * (optional) Sickbeard host name, port and apikey

    I know that there's a lot of potential in improving the plasmoid (controlling sabnzbd, etc.), if you wanna help than feel free to modify the source for your needs.

    Have fun

    This application is merely using the API of sabnzb and sickbeard. Hence, logos and names used within this application are copyrighted by the SABnzbd team ( and Sickbeard team (, respectively.

    * Visual changes looks better on bright themes

    * Bugfix: Sabnzb data was updated twice in a single refresh cycle
    * The plasmoid now makes use of the busy indicator

    * Refresh list via button click
    * Faster refresh
    * When downloading a file data is refrested more often than when sabnzb is idle

    You can now optionally link your Sickbeard with the plasmoid, which will get you:
    * Banners and infos for your shows downloaded by sabnzb (episodename, etc.)
    * the first items in the list show upcoming episodes - upcoming episodes are shown more transparent than actually downloaded shows

    The plasmoid now has a statusbar, where you can pause sabnzbd and see its current status

    Using a wget or curl command, you can retrieve a webpage and save it under the file ~/.regexpsearcher_web.

    Then, the downloaded content is searched for regexp matches.

    This is useful for checking if some specific content has been published on a web page everytime your machine turns on or clic on the \"update\" button.

    Using a command makes things more flexible:
    - It can be a generated file or just a copy of another file. No need to download from Internet.
    - You can simulate POSTs or other types of HTTP request if you like.
    - You can use other protocols, like FTP.

    ThumbnailRoot Actions Servicemenu 2.8.3
    (KDE Service Menu)
    Version: 2.8.3

    - You need to have "ruby" installed for Automatic installation to work

    - From version 2.8 onwards, Root Actions only supports KDE4...Files from version 2.7.3 are included in the package for KDE3 users.
    - My mail address can be found in the README file in the package if you wish to contact me for translations or feedback (You can of course also post a comment here)
    - I can't test the menu on KDE3 anymore, so I can't guarantee the menu works 100% on KDE3


    Root Actions servicemenu provides a convenient way to perform several actions 'as root', from the right-click context menu in KDE filemanagers.

    It aims to be distribution agnostic, if you experience issues in your distribution, drop me an email describing the issue.

    The menu needs a properly configured kdesu/kdesudo to work (kdesudo is preferred, for some added functionality, like remembering password for a period of time...timeout is configurable by sudo settings)

    Any comments, criticism and improvement suggestions welcomed :)

    Included in the download are .desktop file versions for KDE3 konqueror, KDE3 dolphin, KDE4 (both konqueror and dolphin) and an importable user action xml file for krusader KDE4...see installation for details.


    I've dropped version 1.x from the package since 2.x is stable and can do a lot more than 1.x. If you're still interested in the 1.x version, drop me a mail and I'll send it to you.

    Some distributions have packages available in either their main repos or community repos. For easy installation and possible distro specific patches you can use them if available. Manual installation instructions below:

    Version 2.3 ->
    1. Uncompress the script in Root_Actions_2.x to a directory in your $PATH. /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin are two valid options. Make the script executable (if it's not).

    2a. (Konqueror for KDE3) Uncompress the three .desktop files in /konqueror-KDE3 to ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus (This will enable the menu for individual users, if you wish to enable the menu for all users, copy the files to /usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus instead).

    2b. (Dolphin for KDE3) Uncompress the two .desktop files in /dolphin-KDE3 to ~/.kde/share/apps/d3lphin/servicemenus (This will enable the menu for individual users, if you wish to enable the menu for all users, copy the files to /usr/share/apps/d3lphin/servicemenus instead).

    2c. (Dolphin and Konqueror for KDE4) Uncompress the two .desktop files in /dolphin-KDE4 to your kde4 servicemenu folder (possibly ~/.kde/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus...although $KDEHOME [".kde"] can be something else in your distribution). If you wish to use konqueror instead of dolphin as your filemanager, edit 10-rootactionsfolders.desktop by changing 'dolphin' to 'konqueror'.

    2d. (Krusader for KDE4) Import krusader_rootactions.xml file in /krusader-KDE4 with krusader's action manager.

    ----Available Actions----------------------------------------------------------------

    Version 2.x
    - Open Terminal Here (folders) - open a root terminal session in chosen folder
    - Open in File Manager (folders) - open chosen folder(s) in file manager
    - Open as Text (files) - open chosen folder(s) in text editor
    - Open With ... (both) - open chosen items in a program of your choice

    - Copy (both) - copy a single file or folder (ADDED in 2.1)
    - Move/Rename (both) - if multiple items selected and a batch renamer installed (default is krename) start renamer, otherwise use a simple move/rename dialog
    - Compress (both) - Compress selected files/folders (ADDED in 2.7)
    - Delete (both) - Completely removes chosen items (as this is potentially hazardous, there is an extra confirmation dialog), handy for removing back-up files etc.

    - Ownership to Root (both) - change ownership of chosen items to root:root
    - Ownership to Active User (both) - change ownership of chosen items to current user
    - Ownership to ... (both) - change ownership of chosen items to UID:GID of your choice

    - Change Permissions (both) - change permissions of chosen items
    If only a single folder is selected, permissions/ownership can be set recursively. If changing permissions recursively, files are only set executable if they already are executable (Otherwise all files in a directory would be set executable if the parent folder is set executable, which is necessary for the folder to be accessible)

    ----Translating and customizing:-----------------------------------------------------

    2.8.3 KF5 quick fix
    - Removed root reminders for now because of kf5/qt5 compatibility (no "--caption" option support)
    - I'll try to add them back if I find a way to do that. TIP: Setting a different theme/color scheme for root will help you distinguish root apps even without the reminders.

    2.8.2 Hopefully refixed the issue originally fixed in 2.7.4/2.8 and reverted in 2.8.1
    - Using dbus-run-session, which is a better solution than dbus-launch.
    - dbus-run-session is only available in dbus 1.8.x >, so the fix will only work with newer dbus releases, but the menu will still work with older versions (but the bug is obviously not fixed with that version).

    2.8.1 "Out with the new, in with the old and tested" -release
    - Revert "dbus-launch fix" in 2.7.4/2.8 as this is a suboptimal solution to the problem see "Known Issues". I'll revisit the original issue once dbus-run-session trickles down from upstream dbus.
    - Reorganize package to move KDE3 files to a separate directory (Still hoping to get to that code clean-up part on the KDE4 version)

    2.8 Reupload 2.7.4 as 2.8 since this version does not support KDE3 anymore (KDE3 files from version 2.7.3 are still included in the package for those that use KDE3)

    2.7.4 Bugfix
    - Use dbus-launch when starting applications as root (should fix dbus issues like not being able to open files from file manager that was opened as root) REVERTED in 2.8.1

    2.7.3 Bugfix
    - Fixed GHNS installation bug in 2.7.2 (forgot to update install script)

    2.7.2 Translation release
    - Added Swedish translation

    2.7.1 GHNS bugfix & translation release
    - GHNS: Create servicemenu directory (if it doesn't exist) with the install script
    - Added Slovene translation

    2.7 (Stable)
    - Improve filemanager and texteditor fallbacks if xdg-mime fails to detect default applications
    - Changes from 2.6:
    1. Compress action (using ark)
    2. GHNS installation in KDE4 dolphin
    - GHNS installation is still a recent addition, so there may be issues with it, but it should be safe to try (the worst thing that should happen is that the installation fails).
    - 2.7 is likely the last version that supports KDE3. I can't test the menu on KDE3 anymore, and dropping KDE3 workarounds would allow me to clean up the code. I'd still include 2.7 for KDE3 but no new features.

    2.6.99 (2.7 RC2)
    - Try removing version number from the tarball to see if it fixes a few issues with GHNS
    - Edit GHNS scripts accordingly

    2.6.98 (2.7 RC)
    - Fix install/uninstall scripts when using kdesu or xdg-su

    2.6.96 (2.7 beta4)
    - Fix install/uninstall dialogs in older versions of KDE (pre 4.6)
    - Uninstallation dialog made a bit more informative
    - Small fixes in the install/uninstall scripts
    - Test removing the extract-directory in $KDEHOME/share/apps/servicemenu-download/ when uninstalling, dolphin's servicemenu uninstallation doesn't seem to do that for some reason.
    - No changes to the servicemenu itself.

    2.6.94 (2.7 beta3)
    - EXPERIMENTAL: Added install/uninstall scripts for GHNS in dolphin (for testing only)
    - No changes to the servicemenu itself.

    2.6.92 (2.7 beta2)
    - Bytesize bugfix to fix an issue with kdesu on KDE SC 4.6

    2.6.90 (2.7 beta1)
    - Added "Compress" menu option, brings up ark compression dialog (as root) to choose filename, format etc.
    - Consider compress option a beta feature...all testing feedback welcome.

    2.6 "Stable"
    - Fixed bug with default application detection on desktop files with kde4-prefix

    2.5.92 (2.6_beta2) (hopefully just) temporary bugfix
    - removed "--overwrite" option from normal copy and move operations (fix error in older versions of KDE). The "advanced" noninteractive mode still uses the option (So it'll work on KDE SC 4.5 only).

    2.5.90 (2.6_beta1) kde-cp and kde-mv
    - Use kde-cp and kde-mv (if available) instead of cp and mv (This should prevent accidental overwrites by bringing up KDE's overwrite dialog). If you prefer the old "noninteractive" behavior, change $CPDIALOGS to "false" in the script (recommended for "advanced" users only)
    - Some optimizations on the default application checks (removing redundancies)
    - Refreshed requirements. xdg-utils is an optional requirement (default application checks need it, but the menu will work without it)

    2.5.0 (Default applications, TESTING)
    - KDE4 desktop files should now use your chosen default applications for "File Manager" and "Text Editor" actions.
    - As I cannot test the changes in KDE3, KDE3 desktop files still use hardcoded applications (which you can change by editing the desktop files)
    - As this also includes some changes in the code, it may contain bugs (please report if you run into any). It should work, but consider this a testing release (there is only so much I can test myself).

    2.4.11 Bugfix
    - Changed "terminal" icon to "utilities-terminal" in KDE4 desktop files (and krusader xml)...fixes missing icon in "open terminal here" action for KDE SC 4.5
    - Also made KDE3 desktop files consistent in using konsole icon
