CoverGloobus is a simple application that displays the cover and the info of playing song on your desktop as a nice widget.
If you have been using Ubuntu for years, you may have heard of CoverGloobus. The project was last updated 4 years ago, but it’s still working good on Ubuntu 12.04. I’ve tested it on Elementary OS Luna, here are the screenshots:
CoverGloobus downloads lyrics and covers from internet and supports the most popular music plays, including Amarok2, Audacious, Banshee, Deadbeef, Exaile, gmusicbrowser, MOC, MPD, Rhythmbox, VLC, Songbird, Totem, and more.
Download and install the DEB:
Once installed, open it from Application Menu and right click on the widget to configure the player, themes, etc.
To make it work with Noise music player, download the below package, extract and paste the “Noise.py” & “Noise.pyc” files to /usr/share/covergloobus/players
