Display current playing song

In the world of IM, you may want to show songs you are listening to your friend. I'll teach you how to do so in two of the popular IM clients.

First Pidgin, which comes installed by default.

Go to Menu ->Accessories ->Terminal

In there type

sudo apt-get install pidgin-musictracker

After it gets installed, Open pidgin
Go to tools ->Plugins or press Ctrl+U

There you will see MusicTracker Plugin.
Enable it.



You can configure it by pressing Configure Plugin.
You will get options to customize your display.

The second IM client is AMSN.
I have already posted it http://techspalace.blogspot.com/2008/05/amsn-music-plugin.html
