Amarok 2.2 beta 1

Hm, is it just me or is the integration in Amarok 2.2 missing in the package that’s available in the KDE4 factory playground repo? Or has it been removed from Amarok altogether?

same problem here but i do know it is still part of amarok so maybe try compiling it yourself

I want to try Amarok 2.2 out, how do I get it?

The beta is actually version 2.1.80 and you can find it with openSUSE software search.


Cheers for that.

Thread on the issue - KDE Community Forums • Amarok 2.2 and

Have it running. Downloaded phonon through SVN, compiled and installed that, and…
Now the long awaited equalizer in Amarok works !!! It’s not finished yet, but it does work.

MIND: this makes kaffeine segfault on the phonon-backend…

Good to know I wasn’t the only one…and compiling it myself won’t be necessary. An update came just a little while ago and now it works as it should!

I cant get Amarok to scan my collection properly. It just hangs there doing nothing.

I was having the same problem did an update last night and there was an update for amarok which fixed that problem

All I want to do is use Amarok, it just seems such a bloody annoying program. Frustration is setting in.

rpm -q amarok

Works for me™.

rpm -q amarok

Will this work with KDE 3.5.10?

I currently use Amarok 1.4.1, help/about gives:

Amarok 1.4.1 (Using KDE 3.5.10 "release 21.9" openSuse)

it works great, but due to a fault with my speakers resulting in FAR too much bass, a filter/equaliser would be a great improvement.
must I uninstall my current Amarok before getting the new one?

It does here (even with amarok 1.4 and 2.x installed in parallel).

The equalizer is coming: you can see it in the Amarok settings dialog. Today you still need phonon from git to get it working (and make other things like kaffeine crash…), so just wait a bit, it’ll probably be working in 4.3.2., next month.

You don’t have to uninstall amarok. If you meet problems and want Amarok to start from scratch, so that you can configure it as if it was newly installed:

Exit Amarok
Open a terminal window and run these two commands:

rm -rf ~/.kde4/share/apps/amarok
rm ~/.kde4/share/config/amarok*

Start Amarok and configure to your needs.
