    Unhappy Amarok opens and crashes immediately

    I have Suse 11.3 KDE and every time I opened an mp3 file, Amarok opened and closed immediately reporting a new bug everytime. So I followed this thread Amarok Not Launching

    I have uninstalled Amarok through Install/ Remove software.
    But I am not able to find this folder to delete, as mentioned in above post:
    Delete the directory ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok

    Please help me. Thanks in advance.

    Of course we don't know what version you are using or your repos, which may be important

    in ~/.kde4/share/config there isn't any _folder_, but config. files from
    amarok:

    amarok_appletsrc
    amarok_homerc
    amarok_rc

    you find the folder here: ~/.kde4/share/apps/amarok

    If your PC is a 32-bit openSUSE-11.3 (not a 64-bit) with KDE-4.4.4, then after amarok is re-installed, rather than clicking on an mp3 file to play, start amarok with:
    Code:
    strace amarok
    and it should start.

    Its possible you encountered this bug: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=251719

    sorry, spelling slightly incorrect; that's

    amarok-appletsrc
    amarok_homerc
    amarokrc

    or, if that's different in your version, just delete all *rc files
    starting with "amarok".

    That has happened to me as well. The other day I had an automatic kernel update, and after that all hell broke loose. No graphic login, so I had to replace xorg.conf with backup. Then I had to find and install the right nvidia driver. Then Amarok crashed and won't work anymore. Now I can't write to DVD+ anymore. It looks like the driver for DVD+ is missing. I've tried re-installing with no success. Now I'm using Juk for music, and I can't burn the stack of DVDs I have. I've been converting all of my home movies and putting them on DVDs for security. Talk about frustrating.
