Expand the Scope of Unity Music Lens to Rhythmbox, Celementine and Guayadeque

Music Lens collects its data from Banshee Music Player, including songs from Ubuntu Music Store, which acts as a scope for the Music Lens. You can now easily add scopes for some other media players too, namely Rhythmbox, Celementine and Guayadeque, so that songs held by those players can also be searched via the Music Lens in the Dash.


Before you proceed, you obviously only need to install the scopes for media players you are using. For example, if you use Rhythmbox, you just need to install the scope for Rhythmbox and spare the other two from the command below:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:markjtully/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rhythmbox-scope clementine-scope guayadeque-scope

PPA: https://launchpad.net/~markjtully/+archive/ppa
