NB UPDATE Manuw2009 appears to be the coder running ahead with the latest Coverflow plugin, and needs help from U8UNTU users to implement the icons in the plugin. Join the discussion on Ubuntu Forums remember, Freedom = Participation.
Benevolent prodding about the lack of Rhythmbox plugins is paying off. Development of the much vaunted “Rhyming Cvrflw” has resumed and lo and behold, a test version of the plugin was released by manuw2009 yesterday.
You can try it out right now
untar and place folder in ~/.gnome2/rhythmbox/plugins/
(.gnome2 for those who don’t already know is a hidden directory in your home folder. Cntrl H will reveal it in nautilus)
Go to Edit > Plugins
Click on Art Flow
You should see a Coverflow window with generic icons
Future versions should have album art and ability to play music.
For some weirdness with one of the stranger words in the English dictionary, Try Rhyming with Rythmblox, Rythmfox, Rythmflox …
You can now check out the latest version via subversion
svn checkout http://rhythmbox-coverflow-plugin.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ rhythmbox-coverflow-plugin
