More Info:

 [b]Alternative OSD through Gnome Notification

This script shows information about the currently
played track as a notification using a
notification daemon that implements the dbus interface (e.g. libnotify or
notify-osd). It is intended to replace Amaroks own
OSD, so its recommend to deactivate this via the
configuration menu. 
This script was mainly created to integrate Amarok
in the new [b]notify-osd[/b] thats shipped with
Ubuntu 9.04 (Gnome) and planned (afaik) for
Kubuntu as well. See
for details on notify-osd.

* Amarok 2.x
* notify-osd (recommend) or libnotify-bin
* imagemagick[/b][i] (if you use libnotify)[/i]

If you are on KDE see the hint in "Questions and

Major development step with stunning new features
* Full Configurable Notification Title, Body and
Duration with all song information available and
nice unicode symbols
* A nice Help Window that (i hope) explains the
configuration accurately
* set Keybinding to trigger a notification when
ever you wonder which song is playing atm (though
not very straightforward yet) see "Questions and
Answers" for Details
* finally just using the same cover images Amarok
does without searching for fitting covers
* new code concept/structure that benefits future
development of more new features
* now works on Amarok 2.1 Beta as well
