You can add Impulse to this skin with CoverBox, see eNotify skin :D

I've a lot of problems with latest coverbox version. It starts only in a window (I'm using KDE). And I can't import any theme. :(

... and I can't found you eNotify skin again. Where is it? Already deleted? :confused:

Wich KDE version? And did you check for errors in the terminal? Impulse is included in the folder of coverbox skins. Please report me the debug messages using -d option.
LaGaDesk's avatar
KDE 4.9... I can't check it in terminal because it starts not again after close it from autostart. I'll try it tomorrow again.

I found a strange error that executable is in use even after it was closed and seems happens only on kde, the fix is ​​to delete the lock file 'rm ~/.config/coverbox/.lock'
LaGaDesk's avatar
After I deleted this file I've imported my theme and this file is back again.
But it loads the default theme.

Here is my terminal output:

[gaggle@gaggle-LENOVO Dokumente]$ coverbox
Starting D-Bus session...

the error is in your skin on get an integer for the width or height of items, while covergloobus if missing assign a default value and maybe wrong, coverbox always requires it, also for text items.

Many thanks for your help!
Okay, I have found the wrong parts.
Now there are a lot of new inconsistencies. :lol:
If I stop my player and restart after a while
impulse freeze in one second. Then I must
restart player (clementine) and coverbox.
The same if I reload coverbox after changing something.

And another question: Can you explain for what
amplified = "2"
exp_factor = "0.8"

I just installed kubuntu precise and everything worked perfectly, including impulse with the last revision :D
LaGaDesk's avatar
I reinstalled it again and now it works without a window. :confused:
What I have to do to use it with impulse?
And I tried to install my theme but it does not work.
mickyz's avatar
You must add impulse files (.py and .so) inside your skin folder copying these from my impulse skin released with coverbox, and for last, add all the code in the section <widget.../> of skin.xml as is in my skin, you can set bars colors, spacing and size.

Love it. It's an old one, so I guess I missed it cause I wasn't watching you back then... A fav!
LaGaDesk's avatar
Many thanks Pete! :)
I think, it is because I've made two versions of it. ;)
pitkon's avatar
Is this the reason it looks familiar? You are very welcome, Lars :)
