Lockscreen Mediaplayer Buttons

Your rating: None Average: 4.8 (4 votes)


NOTE: It's recommended to unapply patches and uninstall the previous version before updating.

Need patchmanager.

This package contains the set of patches, adding musicplayer buttons to the lockscreen.

It will be great to receive some feedback from you. @Van_ess0


Apply both patches to make buttons work.

Patches included:

-Mediaplayer D-Bus Add

-Musicplayer buttons (for the lock screen)

Known Issues:

*No icon changing, when headphones being removed

[SOLVED]*No buttons disappearing, when player is closing 

[SOLVED]*Patch for the mediaplayer turns off the bt-control

Buy me some Juice for my work :)

Van_ess0's picture

This package contains two patches: Mediaplayer D-Bus Add and Lockscreen Musicplayer Buttons. Both should appear in Patchmanager after installation.

QuasarMX is in my TODO-list. If you're interested in others - contact me via e-mail with the name of the player and it's specs.:)

Excellent, but could you center buttons horizontally? I think it will look much better (at first I thought that it is a bug)

Van_ess0's picture

Thank you :)

I can, but there are notifications at the left side, so i decided to place buttons a bit righter :)

equeim's picture

Maybe move the right side too?

EDIT: может по-русски?)

with a quick test session seemed to work nicely.

I have personally really been waiting for this. You mention that it conflicts with SkippingStones, but howabout with Pebble by Smoku? I think that he hasn't yet enabled music controls fully, or at lest there where some problems. Does this work with his Pebble app?

Oh, yes the controls are not dissapearing after the musics been shut down. This really should be fixed.

Really great work, donation coming if all keeps working

It can conflict with SkippingStones because i use the modificated ruedigergad's patch for the player. It wont conflict with installed app, but may conflict with (un)instalatioin of it.

Patch is still in active development, I'll fix everything I can fix. Thank you for the feedback.
