Description:

These media panel icons were inspired by Nielssonnich's '5 menu-icons' themes. They look best using his white orb icons for the gnome main menu available here:

For Gnome:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=63329

For Ubuntu:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/5+ubuntu+menu-icons?content=63133

For Arch Linux:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=63184

The icons are available with both white and black play, next, and previous images in the archive.

Installation is fairly straight forward. Just use them as icons for launchers added to the panel and point the launchers to the play/pause, next, and previous commands of your favorite media player.

As can be seen from the screenshots, they can be put together in different combinations to achieve a desired effect.

Enjoy!

it looks great, and its a ncie simple idea, thats really imaginative and i love it.

but id love it even more if i could get it to work with xmms :P


am i missing something, because if i use the command eg"xmms -b" thats forward one song, but all that seems to do is try and open a new xmms session. =/ help?

I don't have xmms installed, but you might want to try audacious. It works fine with the command line controls and is basically an updated xmms in terms of interface and all that. It also has a play-pause toggle command that makes more sense for use with the play button. The command line options for XMMS I came across on Google are:

-h, --help Display this text and exit.
-n, --session Select XMMS session (Default: 0)
-r, --rew Skip backwards in playlist
-p, --play Start playing current playlist
-u, --pause Pause current song
-s, --stop Stop current song
-f, --fwd Skip forward in playlist
-e, --enqueue Add file to current playlist
-m, --show-main-window Show the main window
-v, --version Print version number and exit.-h, --help Display this text and exit.


So I think the -b option might be wrong, unless I got the options for an older version or something.

Whenever I click on one of these, I see a terminal flash on screen. Is there a way to get it to not do this?

The buttons don't control the terminal popping up that has to do with how you formatted the command in the launch button. For example in Gnome, if you did this: gnome-terminal -x "command" then a terminal would pop up and run the command. If you just put the command portion in it should just run it in the background. I don't use KDE so I may be wrong, but if you use KDE check to see you haven't checked a box that says run in terminal or console or something like that inside the launcher's properties. Hope that helps.

I'd like to use these with Amarok, but how do I keep them from launching a new Amarok window every time?

I couldn't tell you because I don't use Amarok, but I think it is controlled using something called DCOP in KDE. The commands I came across using Google are:

dcop amarok player playPause

dcop amarok player prev

dcop amarok player next


So, hopefully those will work out for you. There are a bunch of other commands for Amarok as well, like showOSD, stop, volumeUp, volumeDown, mute, etc. Sorry for the delayed response, you probably already figured this out hehe.

I don't use rhythmbox, but try opening up terminal and putting in:

rhythmbox-client --help

These commands should work:

rhythmbox-client --previous
rhythmbox-client --play-pause
rhythmbox-client --next
