Hey everyone,

So I just installed Menuet (got it as a gift from a buddy)
Its pretty good, but theres one feature I cannot seem to get working. I have growl enabled and I want it to notify me when I forward the track or play a new track.

If I play a song all the way through and the next track plays it will notify me but not if I change the song myself...

Sometimes it will do it, but usually not...does anyone know how to fix this? The Last FM client does it perfectly...and I dont really want to have this running because its one more spot on my menubar but if I can't get this thing to work right I may have too...
QUOTE Thanks

Open Growl prefs and select the Applications tab. In the top panel (Applications), select iTunes. In the lower panel (Notification), select the Changed Tracks and make sure there is a tick in the Enable column and a tick in the Sticky box.

I found this on the Growl website:

Quote:
Applications tab.

If you click on the Applications tab, it may be empty. You will need to register some applications first.

Growl is what we like to refer to as a tool for other applications. Now, we don't want to include a list of all of the possible applications in the default installation, because you probably will not be using them all. We also don't know if you would want to even use the applications we have made as examples. So with the default installation of Growl, the applications tab is meant to be empty.

Have no fear. Soon it should fill up with whatever Growl enabled applications that you may have.
When a Growl enabled application tries to talk to Growl, it does something called Registration. It registers with Growl so that Growl knows what notifications it may send out (so that Growl can list them in its preferences)

For the most part, all you will have to do is just launch the application. There are some exceptions. Some applications use filters or rules or whatever was chosen to allow their users control over the whole process within their application as well. If the application you want to use with Growl does not show up in the Applications tab after launching it, look in preferences. If you still don't see it, you can email us at discuss AT growl.info and we can look into the problem.
