Custom album art for Linux users of Zen X-fi
Linux users may have noticed that there is no way to add custom album art to MP3's in Amarok 2 and Banshee, at least using the menu options. There is a workaround for this in Banshee. Find a suitable JPEG, e.g. an image of a composer. The format needs to be square or it can be resized in GIMP. Save the image with the name $artist-$album (no punctuation or spaces and lower case) into your $HOME/.cache/album-art folder. For instance, if the "artist" is Purcell, Henry and the album is Dido and Aeneas the name of the JPEG needs to be purcellhenry-didoandaeneas.jpg The album art will now appear against the album in your Banshee music collection. Now drag and drop the album onto your Zen X-fi in Banshee and the album art will be transferred to the Zen. This call all be done relatively quickly, especially if you are in Firefox and you do a Save as into your album-art folder. Tested on SUSE Linux 11.2.
