new version of Rhythmbox Alternative-Toolbar v0.8.1 released

Alternative-Toolbar v0.8.1 released – Some screen-shots showing what I’ve been hacking for the last couple of weeks.

The side-bar in Rhythmbox has been reworked to be more logical – local sources, online and playlists. If you are still in love with the old rhythmbox sidebar – just reinstate that via the plugin-preferences.

Compare with standard RB:

Similar screen-shot with Client-Side Decoration:

You’ll notice a toggle option in the toolbar. That shows some stuff I’m working on in the master branch (read that as unstable!) of coverart-browser. Toggle that and you’ll see:

So now the side-bar changes to show more views rather than sources. You even have tooltips if you like that sort of thing. Dont worry – you can toggle that off in the plugin preferences.

To get the new release of alternative-toolbar, just update as normal if you are using my rhythmbox-plugins PPA. Otherwise…

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fossfreedom/rhythmbox-plugins
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rhythmbox-plugins-alternative-toolbar

I’m always looking for contributors to my projects – so if you are a budding python hacker – pop-over to the projects alternative-toolbar and coverart-browser and just fork the code.
