First your link refers to unity3d which is a game engine totally unrelated to the unity desktop.
Second, the unity desktop seems to be a bit abandoned.
I think unity use the appindicator library for that kind of thing, but I don't see anything related to progress bars, so I don't know.
If you find a library that does this and it has a typelib file (typically put in a gir package such as gir1.2-appindicator3-0.1) it should be very easy to add.

hi everyone!

is it possible to create a progress bar on unity panel, like this?

it could be done with unity launcher api

progress bar might display overall progress for playlist or for each song.
popup menu might display the song list.

is it possible to create a plugin or a script for this purpose?

or this subject should be posted in the suggestions?

I suppose it is to improve usability  8)

Can you show me the layout ?

Ha! If there's a chance the layout may be culpable that's probably it. I'm using my own bodged modification which I think started out as the "Lists, Library & Context" default a long time ago.

I've attached a screenshot of my Library view. I don't have the tabs shown in the three navigation panels but basically the one on the left is "Lists", the middle one is "Album artist or artist" and the one on the right is "Album". Besides the "Lists" panel the other two panels are both set to mosaic mode with "huge" album art. The unwanted auto-playing happens when I'm left clicking on any item in either of these two panels in mosaic mode.

It may be due to the layout you are using, which one are you using and where are you clicking on an album, maybe post a screenshot ?

First up before I ask my question as this is my first post here I figure it's only right that I give thanks for one of my two absolute favourite pieces of software in the world. I've used it pretty much every day for the last decade as the whole world seems to have gone crazy with cruddy streaming services and I wouldn't be without it. Occasionally had a look at shiny looking alternatives but none of them touch the functionality of GMB.

That said there's this one thing that's bugging me.

I like to browse my collection while listening to music in the order I've queued up. When I'm doing this the left click behaviour when I select an album to display the contents is inconsistent. Sometimes it just displays the track details, sometimes it also starts playing the first track on the album.

Trying to train myself to default to the right click but not doing too well, TBH. Not to mention the right click gives me a menu I don't usually want. Is there any way to modify the left click behaviour? Something in the settings I've missed? Or is it a bug?

Thanks for solving this problem!

Sorry for answering late,
