Thread: What happened to Amarok? Loss of features.

  1. #1

    Default What happened to Amarok? Loss of features.

    I don't see music visualization anymore(libvisual)? I liked the Suse 11.0 version WAY BETTER. What are they doing? going backwards? Can't figure it out.

    Suse 11.0/x32 kde. I have no idea what the version was, but it was the latest off the packman repo for suse 11.0/i586. Amarok looked way better, and had even more abilities besides visualization. Where is the visualization in the suse 11.3 version?

    Are you refering to the differences of Amarok version 2.3 versus the old Amarok version 1?

    Yes, I did have kde3, and I now have kde4. That explains it.

    Don't worry, disgruntled Amarok fans made plenty of noise on the Amarok site when early versions 2.x appeared without their favourite features. Some are still "not there yet".

    i do not know how Amarok numbered their offering...i just guessed that
    it lost capability (like most all apps did) when KDE moved from 3 to 4..

    ah...i see the OP figured that out..

    Version 2 was a complete rewrite for KDE4 with a radically new GUI, and some missing features like being able to play audio CD's.
