pianobar-notify

This utility is called from pianobar. When the status changes, a notification using the Desktop notification system is displayed. It has only been tested in Linux, using the Desktop notification system implemented by the Galago project.

My pianobar config file (~/.config/pianobar/config) includes

event_command = pianobar-notify

To install this app, for the time being, copy or soft-link src/pianobar-notify to ~/bin or a directory in your path.

Required modules:

Run the requirement check script (which requires Test::More) by running:

perl src/check-requirements.pl

I had to add a missing feature to Desktop::Notify::Notification. The patch is:

which basically adds an accessor for app_icon and sends app_icon to the server.

I have a call to _show_in_awesome from the _display method. If you are not using Awesome, or don't have musiccover defined in your rc.lua ($HOME/.config/awesome/rc.lua), comment out the line in _display that calls it (currently 144, but it will change).

The commented out section should look like:

# $self->_show_in_awesome(...);
