Ok, I stopped using Fedora after the version 9. Today for a change I installed Fedora 12. And now I am in an endless world of troubles.At first I was able to video call friends on msn. But it wasn't working. And then I found this guide and did everything it says. Now it's even worse, audio and video call buttons are greyed out?
Amarok is a critical software for me. No Amarok, no Linux. I installed the amarok's latest version through yum. But amarok can't scan my collection. It keeps giving this error "[ERROR!] Tried to query an uninitialized m_db! ".???
3 o 4 days ago I installed KDE 4.6 from KDE 46 repository and I upgrade my OS and some applications like Amarok. I had some problems so I erased .kde folder and reboot my computer. KDE 4.6 works fine and fast (in my opinion, faster than KDE 4.5) but I have problems with Amarok 2.4. When I try to scan my music collection Amarok don't find any song. I have a NTFS partition in my computer and I have all my music there. I mount the partition since fstab and in 6 months I didn't have any problem. I can use Clementine for exmple and scan all my songs perfectly, but not Amarok.
I have removed an album from my hard drive and yet Amarok shows that album in my collection. Neither right-click > delete, nor rescanning library helps. What to do to remove this obsolete data from the collection?
I was using amarok fine with 10.04, upgraded to 10.10 alpha, still worked fine. Decided alpha had a few bugs I didn't like so I completely removed it, installed 10.04 from scratch again (I have two partitions, / and /home, only formatted /). Now I can't get amarok to build for me at all. It plays mp3's no problem but when I try to build my collection it pretends to (takes a few minutes but goes relatively fast compared to what it should take to build) then shows 0 songs. I've already tried deleting amarok inside of /home/user/.kde/share/apps/amarok
I have 2.3.1 on ubuntu lucid and every 20-30sec it scans collection (or updates it) but only to 52% and it stops. I am not changing watched folders fyi. When I start it from terminal I get these messages code...
Ok, it's TagLib's fault, but how can I know what files are causing this and how can I fix them? I suspect it may be some flac albums that I've added to my collection not long ago.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a Dell E6410 and I am not seeing my Local Collection. I went to Settings > Configure Amarok > Collection and chose the folder that has my collection in it. It scans it but when I try to view the Local Collection in the left bar, it's empty. I have Amarok on another computer in the house and it sees them fine. I can also use Rhythm Box on the 6410 and it sees and plays them fine.
After upgrading from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 (yes I'm a bit slow on the update), Amarok no longer displays or plays my itunes collection.
the Itunes collection is on a separate drive in a dual boot configuration (Win XP Pro). Drive is mounted and I can navigate to the music directory in the file browser. Also Amarok can see the directory when I try to rescan my collection.
When I rescan the collection - drilling down to the correct directory - amarok appears to be scanning the diretory. However when it is complete, the collection header (in the local music view) shows the music share with a track count, but the sub directories (album, artist, etc.) is empty.
I have removed and re-installed Amarok, and cleaned up the itunes directory - no change in the behavior.
Amarok reliably played the itunes collection in previous ubuntu distros (9.01, 9.04, 8.10, etc...).
What do I need to do to get the collection visible?
I am running KDE from the unstable repos and am having an issue with the Amarok included... output of rpm query on amarok
When I import my music folder into my amarok library I come up ~3000 songs short. When I load the same music folder into songbird 1.4 I am able to see the full library.
There appears to be no rhyme or reason to which songs' ID3 tags are not being read properly by Amarok and therefore are not appearing in my collection. I have tried removing my collection and rescanning, removing and re-installing amarok.. removing all amarok related folders from my .kde folders and reinstalling... yet I am still unable to get my full collection read by Amarok..
I was just using Amarok 2-3 days ago and everything was working fine. Now every time I launch Amarok it shows 0 songs in my collection. Under my collection properties, it still shows I have the correct folder selected. When I try to rescan my collection, absolutely nothing happens. Also, when I quit the program, it stays in the top gnome bar. When I click on it, the exit option is gone and I have to manually kill the process.
I have been using Linux close to 2 years now. One thing that always bewildered me is audio support in Linux. These days I login to windows only for listening to music. After reading various blogs, i decided to give it a try in Linux with Amarok. There again I am facing a problem.
while i try to scan for music files it is not finding any files.
I have tried with mp3 .wma format files. While I try to add these files individually, Amarok is able to play those.
I am using Amarok 2.3.2 with KDE 4.4.5. Fedora - 12 is my flavor.
Given below is the log obtained with amarok -debug option
TagLib: MPEG::Header:arse() -- First byte did not match MPEG synch. TagLib: MPEG::Header:arse() -- Invalid sample rate. TagLib: A frame of unsupported or unknown type 'TSC' has been discarded TagLib: A frame of unsupported or unknown type 'TSC' has been discarded TagLib: A frame of unsupported or unknown type 'TSC' has been discarded
the issue i am having has been narrowed down quite a bit through various posts from here and on google. the set up is amarok 2.3.1, kde 4.4.5 and fedora 13. when i am scanning my collection amarok crashes. the music is on a second mounted hard drive with an ntfs formatting. i have copied the same folder to a ext3 formatted second hard drive, my main linux partition (ext4) and its location on my third ntfs drive. from my linux partition and from the ext3 partition the folder is scanned fine but on the ntfs partition it fails to complete and crashes.i tried amarokcollectionscanner stand alone it scanned the entire ntfs partition fine but when scanned from amarok through the rescan collection button, it crashes. it is about 200 gigs of music so i am not really keen on moving the entire collection. i have been working on this for a while and have not figured out a work around or how to fix this
i'm on a ubuntu machine and i installed amarok, because i like it more than rhythmbox, so i configured the collection but the list doesn't show.. i click the option "update collection" but it does nothing i can play mp3 files if i right-click on them and open with amarok..., also when i'm using amarok i dont get sound on my web browsing lets say in ..... i get no sound. what can it be? by the way i'm using UBuntu not Kubuntu.
After installing slackware 13.1 I start up amarok and when I go in and configure the settings and it starts to scan the folder and it either hangs at 10%, stops responding all together or crashes, the library is about 130 gigs of mp3s. I do not know where to start on this one. Amarok version 2.3.0
I have most of my music on my hard drive in one big "Music" folder, and in Amarok this is seen as the collection. Everything is imported, works fine.
Until i change the ID3 tags of a file/album. Amarok refuses to load the new tags, and keeps displaying the old tags.
I have over 200 GB of music in that folder, some of it is badly tagged. When i realize that, i retag the files with Musicbrainz. And unless i scan the entire collection again, the new tags wont be loaded. Needless to say i can't listen to the respective album/file for hours, as the rescanning of that whole folder takes at least one hour.
I just started messing with the networking tools in Linux, and I've discovered that when I run an intense scan in zenmap on 192.168.1.1-254, the network crashes. By network crash I mean - All clients on the network lose connectivity.
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
Suse 11.3 KDE 4.4 Amarok - Standard version that comes with 11.3 I start Amarok, which still worked fine yesterday and this morning. I get the Amarok splash screen and then it disappears and the Crash Handler with the following message appears.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and having trouble with Amarok. It crashes on on startup. I have read that the issue is not with Amarok but rather phonon. Is there a solution? Application: Amarok (amarok), signal: Segmentation fault [Current thread is 1 (Thread 0xb68cb950 (LWP 13047))]

I use to use amarok a lot back in the day and loved it. Saw that I could install it on ubuntu (which was a great suprise, since I though amarok was a KDE application).
Anyways, EVERY time I load amarok, I see it pop up for about 1 or 2 seconds and then my xserver (is that what it is called? the GUI portion of linux) crashes and restarts. EVERY SINGLE TIME. Open amarok, xserver crashes and restarts.
When I try to start amarok, I get a splash screen, and then it crashes with a segmentation fault. I have tried removing the amarok rpm's, and reinstalling it, but that didn't work out. I don't get enough information from the backtrace, but I also can't figure out which packages I need to get more debugging information. I have been subscribed to development repositories, so I guess I have some unstable packages on my system, but don't know which ones. So this is what I get: After starting amarok from Konsole, I get the following output:
The other day I fully updated (by updating all in repository unconditionally) to KDE 4.4 final. After that it seems amarok crashes when I try to start it. Here's the "Developer Information" from the crash.
My amarok crashes everytime. I saw an similar problem posted at OpenSUSE 11.3: Amarok crashes on startup. And I suspect this is because of the nvidia drivers that I installed, just as is the case in the above mentioned thread. What should I do to overcome this now? Is there a solution posted? After I read the above thread, I deleted all the repositories except for the four. I had these following repositories prior:
When I attach my MP3 player (a Sony S series Walkman), Amarok crashes. It is a problem with libmtp, but I don't know how to resolve it. The player can connect as mass storage or mtp (note that connection mode is not selectable on the device), but Amarok automatically claims it as mtp and promptly crashes, if I connect the player without Amarok running and mount it as mass storage then start Amarok, it still claims it as MTP, crashes and blocks the device so it is no longer accessible as anything. I would just uninstall libmtp as I have no use for it, but Amarok requires it. The options as I see them: 1) get a version of libmtp that doesn't screw up with this device 2) stop Amarok claiming mtp devices (no settings for this - anything in config file?) 3) stop linux recognising this as an mtp capable device so Amarok doesn't try to claim it.
I'm on Ubuntu 10.04, Amarok version 2.3.0, Using KDE 4.4.2 Whenever I start Amarok and try to play any song, amarok crashes, smetimes a few seconds of the music can be heard even if the Amarok window is no longer there. This is my yakuake code from starting Amarok to the crash, I don't really know where to start looking for an answer.
I've recently been using amarok and liked it a lot. I unchecked the show system tray in configuration, restarted amarok and then checked it again. Now amarok crashes whenever I go into configuration or browse through local files. I have tried reinstalling and deleting the directory ~/.kde/share/apps but no use.
