Amarok + Kalarm = alarm clock

Filed under: Uncategorized — atanok @ 05:36

Open Kalarm, create a new command alarm, check Enter a script box and paste this in:

amarok --play
qdbus org.kde.amarok /Player org.freedesktop.MediaPlayer.VolumeSet 100
amixer sset Master 100

Bam! Amarok alarm.

Don’t forget to leave Kalarm turned on for the night.

You may turn off your sound system, given that you have some unnecessarily intricate contraption to turn it on in time, or a programmable time switch.

Also, thanks to the guys at #amarok for pointing me to D-Bus.



  1. Trying this shit out, after a hilarious alarm malfunction this morning.

    (Equally hilarious blog post forthcoming!)

  2. I have been looking over your Stanly 31200 timer. It has gotton some negative feedback; however, it looks quite interesting to me.
    I don’t need a timer timer. At the present time, I have two.

    • I never bought one of those; it’s there for illustrative purposes.
      I should have mentioned that, being a link to amazon…
      I’ll change it to a link to the relevant Wikipedia article.

      Thank you for the feedback 🙂
