Karaoke app for linux

A small karaoke/lyrics display for the currently running VLC song.

Make sure the songs have metadata (at least title and artist).


  • Download from the "Releases" section
  • chmod +x karaoke-x86_64.appimage
  • ./karaoke-x86_64.appimage


  • step 0 - setup a linux flutter toolchain
  • step 1 - flutter run

Known bugs

  • Attempting to close the app will make it hang. Looks like dbus_client doesn't close its thread
  • Running under wayland produces a blank window without GDK_BACKEND=x11 env var, probably flutter's problem
  • stdout is very spammy (dbus_client is loud)
