Wow! What next?
dear, whenever you upload a new version i go to the repository, layouts file and copy the text of arkanoid portion of  file in a new file in my layouts folder. it works fine
is this the usual way or do i need to add ur repository and do something like sudo get-update. forgive my ignorance
i am new to all this

Sorry, there is no repository on Launchpad that includes my changes.

You can clone my repository. It contains the current official state code plus some additions.

git clone

To use the development branch:
git checkout -b development origin/development

To use the my master branch:
git checkout master

To update the development branch with the latest version:

git fetch
git merge origin/development

Youn can install gmb with
sudo make install
or you can start with


your layout look nice...

can you post the .layout file or give a link to it ?

It's a part of my gmusicbrowser fork (It's nothing bad. The changes should go back into squentins work ).
Currently in the development branch:

* Context/queue (and why not /list played) seems to me better in a tab than in a hide-able window

Done, see the latest development branch.

Thanks !

May be "settings icon" close to the menu/volume/etc. buttons ?

An extra button for settings? The menu item is in the main menu on the right.
I would not like to use more space for another button.

OK (I often use "settings" choice in the "menu", to check new songs, switch to "List layout", but it doesn't matter)
I ask the tabs, it's usefull, but I ask myself if the tabs aren't breaking the layout original harmony...
What is your opinion ?

can there be a fullscreen layout like the arkanoid but showing the queue
i have a 22 inches monitor which has lots of space remaining after the image and buttons
a queue would be nice
i think it will make you 5 mins to write the code
thanks in advance

Done in the latest development branch.

Ask me for a different look.

I have a problem. May be it's a GMB bug :
Buttons in queue list haven't any effect.
And when I clear the queue by "CTRL-A\right clic\delete from queue", it clears the queue AND the static playlist opened behind.
An idea ?

See the lastest development branch.

The lists on the right are now slightly above.
Songtree stats now on the top
Title, Album, Artist and Stars are now on a independently pane.
This area can be resized. The right of the display for the pane is the handle.
