Well, In the previous post I did’t upload any image so here it goes, one showing covergloobus working with docky and spotify!!

(and the new theme from d0od)

Hope you like it!

I fixed the bzr error so you can try it now

bzr branch lp:covergloobus
cd covergloobus
sudo make install

    not the perfect place to say this:
    since the last update (today) gloobus-preview stopped working – is there any way to get the previous version (or the next one if there is a testing repository)?
    (i don’t know if writing gloobus-preview in a terminal used to give anything, now it just sends a “command not found” error)

    It’s fantastic and on my pc it works like a charm! Incredible stable, docky and covergloobus never crash =) I think that would be great if it can be integrated into music player icon, I mean that the icon of the playa can switch to cover if a plugin will be develops.

  6. maxim dice:

    great thing, but will there be a mpd+sonata support?

  7. MastroPino dice:

    Unbelievable just asked and already online =)

  14. Mario dice:

    My covergloobus doesn’t recognize spotify installed using wine and a prefix, is there anything else to do?

  15. Luis dice:

    This is little app is great, I was clueless when I installed it today and realized it actually supports Spotify (I was completely surprised when I first launched and it immediately detect spotify), but I can’t get it to change the current song, is there any way to do it? Or it isn’t implemented yet?
