Amarok - missing info

Postby impeteperry on Wed Oct 21, 2009 11:48 pm

I am running Mint 7 on 2 computers. both computers play the music fine through a Bose wave radio

on one, when playing a stream (otto's opera house) I get the name of the opera and the composer and the stop/start work fine.

on the other one, playing the same stream, I get only the URL and sometimes with stop/start I loose the Amarok installation and I get a long message . see Attachment.

Any suggestions?

Which version of Amarok?
Seems there are problems with 2.0.2 that is in the normal repositories so you should install 2.1.1
Probably best to uninstall the existing version first
Code: Select all
apt remove amarok

Enable the jaunty backports repository
I find the easiest way to do it is by editing
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Find the line
#deb jaunty-backports main restricted universe multiverse
Uncomment it and update
Code: Select all
apt update

To install the new version
Code: Select all
apt install amarok

This will now install 2.1.1
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
