Amarok 1.4 handled various artist albums really, really well. Every time I try giving Amarok 2 a spin, it fails miserably on this. This is the main reason. Also, it doesn't seem to recognise album art files in the same folder, only those embedded in the actual music file. Basically they got really distracted by lots of shiny things and lost the core ...

This is the KWalletManager checking for a last.fm password most likely. You can close the KWalletManager from the system tray, the symbol looks like this:

this is how you can switch kwallet off for amarok

Have you tried the codec pack? According to this site it should solve your problem.

Try to run it from the command line first. Maybe it's displaying an error and it doesn't give you enough time to see it before closing itself.

Sounds to me like the codecs are missing.

Orb may work for you. I use it to stream Sirius to media players and my Droid.

I don't think so (you could submit a feature request), but you can use Ctrl-J ("Search playlist") and then Shift-Tab to get there. Not the most practical of solutions, but it works.

First create a smart playlist by choosing the playlist tab, then right clicking on "Smart Playlists", then give it a name, choose "Match Any of the following Conditions" and then enter "Rating" "is" "not rated". This will automatically be the entire collection + your search. If you want to limit this, to a smaller number, then create a new dynamic playlist ...

An example song URI for Magnatune for a paying subscriber would look like this: http://username:password@download.magnatune.com/all/03--Massassi%20Morning%20Star--Ishwish_nospeech.mp3 Further details about the Magnatune API are on their [API page][1]. The documentation is sparse there, but you can download the "zip" files linked to there, which can XML ...

I would simply not use Amarok, but Audex. Audex is specialized for Audio ripping and also allows to include the cover in the metadata of the ripped files.

Did you set an environment variable to the VLC installation directory(C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC on my machine) as suggested in the post install instructions?

I don't know Fedora, but it's like this on Ubuntu, there should be an icon pasted in the "multimedia" or "sound/video" menu.

Basically because I'm not a fan of the new design in 2.0. For me personally It's just not as clean as 1.4. I've even started moving away from 1.4 now and onto banshee.

because you cant crossfade between songs any more. I have a DJ system rockin ubuntu and amrok, but no update since we cant crossfade

iTunes has Genius, which offers recommendations for your music. It's free, but you need an iTunes account for Genius to work. Also, keep in mind that iTunes is a resource hog.

Do you have a lot of hard drive activity while playing music? Since you're streaming music from the disk, a lot of other use of that disk could cause this. The other likely culprit is that there's something wrong with your sound backend. Did Kubuntu make the switch to PulseAudio? I've heard a lot of horror stories about it -- if it did you might want to try ...

Seems to be fixed in Amarok Version 2.1.90 (its 2.2 rc1 I believe).

I faced the same problem, under Ubuntu, albeit. You'll have to install phonon-backend-xine. Once that was installed, it was all smooth sailing. Your other problem should also be fixed with this.

There's sometimes a problem with the Xine engine and Ogg files. Can you play an Ogg file in Xine directly? If you get an error like 'no demuxer plugin available' try exiting all audio playing applications, then open up a console and type in the following command: rm .xine/catalog.cache Then restart Amarok and see how it goes.
