Thread: Amarok glitch, suse 12.1-kde-64bit

  1. #1

    Default Amarok glitch, suse 12.1-kde-64bit

    I used the one-click multi-media installer. I can play mp3 files, but it's asking to install mp3 support on boot. ??

    How to fix it? Thanks.

    Did you make the suggested changes as pointed out by mmcheck? I do use Amarok, follow the mmcheck suggestions of course and its not asking to install anything. I just add in the Packman repository, allow YaST to switch Vendor to Packman and update all files as suggestion by mmcheck. You have got to be missing something here.

    Thank You,

    I had another idea. I uninstalled then installed "amarok". I restarted it and still received the same error. I noticed another amarok in yast->software, "kde-amarok". So, I unstalled "amarok" and installed "kde-amarok". I started it and didn't get the error. It appears "amarok" has a bug.

    I am only loading the file called amarok. When I serach through openSUSE 12.1, I find it is in Packman, but for 11.4 it is not, but I did not find a kde-amarok in my repositories.

    "Amarok" plays MP3's, but asks for MP3 support. "kde-amarok" is in the packrepo. I can find it with yast, not on a repo tab.

    Before the last os install, all the repos are listed in yast. Now, the repo list in software isn't there. Upgrade or bug?

    Yast-> Software Management -> --repo tab--

    The repo tab is missing. Apper will find updates. Before the install, I find the repo tab do right-click, "update if newer version available."

    I'll try MMcheck, but again. Playing MP3's with Amarok. Restart amarok. "Do want to install mp3 support?" Why do I need to install mp3 support when i'm currently playing MP3's????

    Another Amarok can play mp3's. ??

    Yast->software "kde-amarok" looks like it comes from an opensuse repo.

    So I am not sure how you produced the code output but I note one entry that says "obs://build.opensuse.org/KDE:KDE3". Unless you are using only the KDE3 desktop, I would not load amarok from the kde3 repository. I have installed KDE3 stuff into openSUSE 11.4 before, but one must be careful just what you mix together and now everything I ever got from KDE3 is there for KDE4 in Packman including Kaffeine-kde3 when using openSUSE 12.1. But, I would make sure amarok was intended for use with KDE4 and not for kde3 or from a KDE3 repository. This is something you can see on the Versions tab when running YaST from KDE4.

    I have suse 12.1-kde, latest updates. Select "kde-amarok". Click versions tab.

    "kde-amarok" KDE3
    "amarok" KDE4

    I can just click "don't show this message again.", but do I report this as bug on "amarok"? Also, I'm not doing another username and password.

    Email the developers to help out?

    In openSUSE 12.1 I open YaST / Software / Software Management and search on amarok. Once found I open up the versions tab and this is what I find:



    I have installed Amarok version 2.4.3 and I am just not seeing anything combining kde3 and Amarok together.

    I found out that when I installed klamav-kde3 front-end, I added the KDE3 repo which has "kde3-amarok". That's how.

    I see "kde3-amarok". I don't see "kde-amarok".

    For amarok itself, there's a version in the opensuse repos and there's a version in the packman repos.

    Yes, I got that notification form amarok when I first used it. I told it to go ahead, though I had already installed the multi-media stuff. Using amarok again, no additional notice. Possibly it is looking for something that was missing. Or maybe it is just confused.
