Thread: Amarok does not see IPod after upgrade to 12.3

  1. #1

    Default Amarok does not see IPod after upgrade to 12.3

    Amarok no longer recognizes my IPod Nano since I upgraded to 12.3 and KDE 4.10. In 12.2 and KDE 4.95 it worked flawlessly. I have IPod support enabled, and the diagnostics panel under help shows that IPod support has been enabled. I'm fairly sure that this is an Amarok problem since all the proper IPod support libraries, like libgpod, are installed. As proof, Banshee sees my IPod without any difficulty.

    In addition, a mysterious Nepomuk Collection has appeared along with my Local Collection with about half the local collection's tracks. It is not the IPod as it contains tracks that are not on the IPod. This collection does not show up on Banshee.

    I could use Banshee, but I've gotten used to Amarok and would like to see it work at least as well as it did in the past. Any clues as to how to get it to work correctly?

    Can you test it under a new user?
    Just create a temp small music store for the test.

    I don't have a ipod but I have a customer who I just moved on to 12.3 and they have no issues with their device

    Oddly enough, I went into .kde4/share/apps and renamed the amarok directory amarokbak. I then opened Amarok, loaded the IPod and it showed up without issue. Now here's the odd part. Since I lost all my podcasts and playlists which were in the old amarok directory, I wanted to see if I could export them somehow. So I erased the new Amarok directory, renamed Amarokbak, the old directory, Amarok, restarted Amarok, and there was the IPod. This strikes me as exceedingly odd.

    I still have the mysterious Nepomuk collection with about 1/3 of my actual collection. I have no clue what this is or what to do about it. I had Nepomuk turned on in 12.2 and this never showed up there.
