      Does it make sense ?

        Have You tried this example ?
        (copy lines between "--------" to file and run
        anyremote -f /path/to/this/file)

      Excuse my ignorance, I don't even know what to do with this (yet), I'm not a programmer ;P
      But I hope this will be included in some new release.

      I never liked kmid, at least in it's kde3 version, I hope it gets better on kde4. The main problem is the headache it can cause while trying to configure timidity sound server to work properly in your distro. I don't know why midi software emulation support doesn't come out-of-the-box in most linux distros.

      Plaperbu seems a much more nice piece of software, because of it's complete gui and its features, it can be compared with windows versions of karaoke software (e.g: vanbasco's karaoke player). It's written in java, it has it's pros and cons, but at least you don't need to configure anything for it to sound properly.

      These are just my thoughts, I wanted to share, If anyone knows of a better karaoke player, please talk about it. Maybe writting a plugin for a java app is different or complicated.

      Thanx for your attention

        Well, but where is home page of plaperbu ?

        Ooops... :-) found it at

        Well, i took a quick look to it and did not found what this player
        could not be managed from keyboard (am i right ?)
        So, seems there could be no way to control it from anyRemote :-(

    • Nobody/Anonymous

      yeah, kmid works!!
      well, the phone hasn't got the icons to control kmid, and i'm not sure what's doing. Also a way to add more songs and more kanyremote options like for amarok would be great. Well done!
      It's a pity that plarpebu (sorry for the misspelling) is not controllable, I thought it would accept command line arguments at least. I will read about it.

      It's work very well with wine.
