I finally found a way to move the cover to the right. It’s probably not a perfect solution for very large screen sizes but it works well on my laptop. In case it helps other I will post the method here:
Open /volumio/http/www3/scripts/app-40ba15eb14.js and find two instances of the following string: <img ng-if="trackInfo.playerService.state.albumart" ng-src
In both cases, modify the DIV tag immediately before both of these image tags by adding align=“right”
I would like to remove both volume and time cricled on the right and leave the album art with titles alone.
Which files are responsible for overall elements layout? I have only chaned the app_number.css file.
AFAIK v3 doesn’t change anything in the UI so should be straightforward!
Technically apart from the new modular ALSA audio pipelines and the myVolumio plugin store, not much has changed in the back end…
The main changes are the in base operating system and all packages, that speed up the system
@ashthespy - there were changes in the CSS code even between 2.x versions so the modification has to be redone and retested every time there is a software update. Given that 3.x is still at release candidate stage, it’s not worth putting time into a version which will change within weeks and then again probably a few weeks later. I’ll wait for a really stable version.
I just wish Volumio would give us an interface option with larger cover art. At the moment, 75% of the layout is wasted space.
I feel your pain.
I fear Volumio’s focus on new features outweighs the focus on stability of the system. It would be an interesting Business Intelligence metric to see how many paying users join for every new feature that is launched, compared to subscriptions being cancelled as people move to other options…
I use a MS Surface Pro, and the album art is still small, there is a lot of wasted space on the screen.
Rotate the Surface Pro to Portrait and the album art fills the width… far better. Shame I ca’t work out how to resize the art in Landscape view.
@Volumio: should we limit x86 kiosk mode to 1920x1080, seeing more and more x86 devices have higher resolutions (especially macbook and surface)?
In that case the code block shown above should be permanently uncommented (I introduced it once, but was not sure we would ever use it).
