Amarok is very-very good, and gets better every release!

Smthng else: I spot that to edit id3 tags, pressing F2 works not in most circumstances. Other problem is, that only title of song can be edited with F2. Could it be improved somehow?

 amarok menu wish

 
 by jojolecastor on: May 25 2005

Amarok is great and his playlist manager too.
But would it be possible to have a menu like the konqueror "copy to" and "move to".

A small example :

"move to playlist" :
->"myPlaylist rock.m3u"
->"maPlaylist 60's.m3u"
...


I think it could be an easier way to create and manipulate playlist !

thanks

I've had alot of experience with it trying to figure out why it keeps crashing.

Boy does it crash. It crashes with almost every breath I take. It is that crazy.

Well, actually, it is a problem with the coders feeling it is not their responsibility to 1) identify exactly which libraries, etc they were using when they developed it, 2) a lack of responsibility when it comes to trapping errors when those libraries don't match the version they were using to develop it.

The problem with the crashes are exactly that. The developers are NOT taking the time to trap the errors that may be generated by 3rd party sound systems. For instance, the user may choose gstreamer and they may also have alsa and arts installed. Choosing any one of those 3 will cause amaroK to crash wildly if it isn't the right version of gstreamer. Yes, you heard it correctly. If you are using arts or alsa but have the wrong version of gstreamer and you choose to not use gstreamer instead choosing arts or alsa, the program will wildly crash.

This is caused mostly by not documenting and trapping the errors or the lack of proper data structures being sent back by the external sound engines.

The problem that makes this 1000 times worse is that the admin on the amarok.kde.org are inpertinent and tend to attack the users, almost reminding me (and others it seems) of meglomania.

They are rude and will attack you when you report the problems and as of the majority of problems listed, even in their specific forum for asking for help, they don't actually help instead they act contrite and attempt to ridicule and demean you.

This is my experience and my opinion.

The answer to most crashes is to go to the gstreamer home page and download the appropriate gstreamer engine. Keep it up to date.

My suggestion for the developers is to get off your butts and to add the proper trapping for these errors. Otherwise people will be extremely unhappy, and alot of us have been unhappy for a very long time. Posting that you have happy people is disingenuous as there are alot of unhappy people and it all centers around the fact that you won't trap these errors because you don't think it is your responsibility.

There's nothing like passing off the song to be played to these engines and then not watching to ensure that you are reading the right return values so you can properly play/display the song data.

Markey - maybe we should just stop developing amaroK, catmandu isn't happy about the way we run things...

Catmandu - I'm not sure when you first used a computer, but it is not our responsibilty to make sure your hardware is compatible. We don't have all the hardware and time in the world. We code and give you amaroK for free.

amaroK provides a sound engine frame work in an attempt to allow the user to choose the backend they would like to use. This is the users responsibility.

It is ridiculous to state that we, as developers, have to integrate the sound system you choose with the hardware that you have. This should be the job of either you, or the developers of the multimedia backend.

Uhm, do you think you are doing anything other than make yourself look like a bitter, vindictive fool. Whatever got your undies in a bunch over amaroK is not nearly as important as the freedom you will enjoy when you let go of your pain and anger.

On the other hand, since you are such a coding genius, maybe you could jump into the project and help out, perhaps by trapping a few of those errors you speak so fondly of. A 1337 coder such as yourself must have a few library routines for that sort of thing just sitting there waiting to get integrated into a cool app like amaroK.

Last release, when mxcl responded to your criticism so harshly, I felt a little uncomfortable, like he wasn't being fair, but seeing your ignorance displayed yet again in such a grandiose fashion makes me change my mind. He was spot on.

Please get rid of the amazon cover retrieval. Although it's nice, it's very annoying that covers are deleted after 90 days. What about Google images? Juk is handling this better.

Agree. The Amazon lookup seems slick, but in the long run I find it mostly irritating since it does badly on non-American artists.
A combination of Amazon and Google would be great, but if I had to choose, I would prefer Google.

Add --disable-amazon to your configure options, it's that easy.

Don't use the Suse-rpms (they disable musicbrainz support (at least with their Suse 9.2 packages) , use the RPMs from Guru (http://linux01.gwdg.de/~pbleser/ )

I installed it from the source... I'm using a portuguese distro based on suse 9.2 and KDE 3.4. In guru's RPM site there aren't rpms of amarok-1.3 for kde 3.4 and suse 9.2 :(
I'll wait for the next builds :p

Thanks

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
