if your player uses USB mass storage protocol (in other words, if you can mount it as an USB mass storage in KDE), then you can use it in amaroK right now. Just open "Files", type media:/ and you can select the player.

Or you could use this. http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=26850 You can install it directly from the script manager using the Get More Scripts button. Another thing, we are aware of the fact support for only iPods sucks. We plan on supporting more devices in 1.4 so please be patient and keep an eye on our website for developments.

I really like amarok, and i like even more when 1.3 version came out. That left menubar is much better than older 1.2.x version. I hope that style would come to konqueror and other KDE software too.

First i used Mandriva, then i tryed Kubuntu and i noticed it is much faster. But problem with kubuntu is that it dont have so many packages than mandriva has, even when all multiverse and universe etc sources are selected.

And now big thing why taked Mandriva back is that it has amarok 1.3.x while kubuntu has only old 1.2.4 version.

your arts is compiled with a different version of gcc than amarok itself.

Hello,

thanks for this fantastic application.
But I'm not able to compile the new version 1.3.1 with konqueror integration. Is it broken?

I dont know why, seeing as no error message is shown, but every time I try to play something with the latest version amarok simply quits. Regardless of what engine or any settings it always crashes the second I try to play a song.
All my other audio players work fine, so I would assume this to be something wrong with amarok...?
Any ideas?

Simply the best music player in my humble opinion... Do you consider adding support for Creative players (like Zen Xtra), just like you support iPod now? This could be (easily?) done with libnjb library (have a look at kzenexplorer project). This is the only thing missing in Amarok for me! Thanks for this great project!

I am running Mandriva 2005 LE and cant get Amarok 1.3: - compile from source completes successfully but no command exists named amarok - URPMI from custom URL (http://www.gkmweb.com/amarok/2005LE/) fails due to problems with CURL - download/install from custom RPMs fail because of unsatisfied dependencies Help! I am getting music withdrawal jitters owing to prolonged lack of amarok music! :)

* The tyranny of deleting covers every 90 days is over. Instead, amaroK now automatically downloads the covers every 80 days to comply with Amazon.com requirements.

Thank good. This was so annoying, that I stopped using this feature. Hello Covers again!

There's a script called copycover. It copies covers from cache to the directory with the songs.

... but I can't resist to state that the screenshots as presented here make amaroK look worse than it actually is.

They are seemingly done in fullscreen and even on a 1280x1024 screen (which I assume is the resolution of the screenshots) I have to scroll to see everything.

It's just that I assume most people wouldn't ever want a music player that *has* to be used in a fullscreen mode. Normal operation for most music players and what most people expect or like seems to be a rather small window - maybe 1/4 of the whole screen.

The shots make amaroK look like it's not usable in such a way. Which I think isn't good at all.

Cheers :o)

When it comes to screen realestate, amaroK has what is quite possibly the smallest footprint of all players out there. A fully working interface to most of the application's core functionality in 22 by 22 pixels. Yes, this is of course the systray icon. Scroll wheel and such is truly your friend here, it's usable for switching tracks ([ctrl][wheel]), scrolling through a track ([shift][wheel]), volume change ([wheel]), viewing track information (hover), show/hide application ([mouse1]), actions menu ([mouse2]).

So... yeah :) These screenshots were made to show off all the functionality, but this particular part of it does not do well for showing this particular stroke of genious (i can't even remember who came up with this functionality... but a brilliant idea it certainly was ;) )

Hi,
I'm using Amarok for some time now, and I'm very happy with it. It's one of the best for the desktop IMHO.

Keep up the good work!
