JumpToWindow
============
Copyright 2012 Beat Küng <beat-kueng@gmx.net>
JumpToWindow is a Rhythmbox plugin which shows a 'Jump to' window when a certain
hotkey is pressed. It allows to fast selecting a song from the currently playing
source (without having to use the mouse).
It's very similar to the 'Jump to File' feature in Winamp, including the ability
to enqueue a song.
Note: This plugin requires Rhythmbox 3.0 or newer. For older versions use
git tag v0.95 (git checkout v0.95)
Installation
------------
1) Run make install
Or copy the content of this folder to the directory
"/home/<user>/.local/share/rhythmbox/plugins/JumpToWindow/"
(If this directory doesn't exist, create it!)
2) install packages 'python3-dbus' (eg yum install python3-dbus)
3) Install a global hotkey that executes the script
"/home/<user>/.local/share/rhythmbox/plugins/JumpToWindow/src/activate.py"
- For gnome go to System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> Add
- Or you can use the window manager independant package 'xbindkeys'
(http://www.nongnu.org/xbindkeys/xbindkeys.html)
4) Enable the plugin in Rhythmbox under 'Edit > Plugins'
5) You probably have to lower the focus prevention level in your window
manager, that the Jump to window gets the focus, when the hotkey is
pressed.
Keyboard usage
--------------
- Enter to play the selected song & hide the window
- Alt+Enter to enqueue the selected song
- Esc to hide the window
- Up/Down arrow to select the previous/next item
pressing Space repeatedly also selects the next item
(Shift+Space for previous item)

- Shift + B: scroll one page up
