 boy this sucks

Amarok 1.4 was easily the best player I've used, but v2 disappoints and keeps disappointing, even after all this time.

Wasting screen real estate with large unused spots and a non-removable, in your face plasmoid section, awful playlist usability, no drag-n-drop from playlist or collection to a filemanager, and all kinds of other annoyances.

And instead of focussing on usability and reimplementing the small but essential features that Amarok 1 gave us, the devs keep overreaching and re-re-re-implement 'eyecandy' here and plasmoid there.

I switched to Exaile. It isn't perfect, I had to patch it a little to get the drag-n-drop working, but at least it doesn't annoy me like Amarok 2 does.

First of all Amarok2 is not Amarok 1.4 with an increased version number, but a new application.
Don't know which version you're using, but it must be pretty old. I assume buggy Jaunty with 2.0.2.
And don't write us, if you mean solely you.
Can't see any contribution from you on the official forums.
Perhaps the headline contains an error and it should be This boy sucks.
No, I don't want to start a new discussion about A2.

It's still a media player, no?

And if it's a new application, why quote "Easily the best media-player for Linux at the moment. Install it now!", which was an endorsement for amarok 1??!!

You're right, I'm on Jaunty. A while back I made an attempt to compile from source, but the mysql-embedded dependency was a little strange, and at that time to much hassle to satisfy. Maybe I should try again, or find a more polished .deb

I never did. Maybe you should read my comment again?

ad hominem. too easy. Besides, I did contribute an Amarok1 plugin, but apparently being a forum spammer on the official forum carries more weight.

So you're calling me a spammer?
And you contributed a plugin?
Didn't know, that Amarok 1 could be
extended by plugins.
But okay. Your mother is proud of you, for sure.

 I like Amarok 2

Hi,
for my purpose is it the solution I prefer before other project. Some of players I tried even with all their problems without bigger lamentation probably don't exist anymore. :-) Other solutions either must still constantly grow to retreive some usable functions or are looking little slow.

I am interested in one thing: The export of entries in playlist to the editable list of these names of songs. Is there something for it. Or is there any way how to export such a list i a filemanager.

I am looking forward to Amarok 2.2. I am curious on the change in displaying of tabs (Collection, Internet, Playlists, Files) from vertical disposition to horizontal. Really I always had to rotate with my head to see these items before. :-)

The applet with 1) equalizer, or better 2) that vizualizer of spectrum of played music - osciloscope is that word? - this is the thing I would like to see placed in the the context window.

In settings - of course more setting: e. g. Replay Gain: in Audacious are some options to set it correctly.

Thank's for your work.

Finally I can switch to Amarok 2 :-)

Amarok 2.1.1 seems a great app. It's not perfect but seems quite promising.

Thank's for your work, I'm really happy with this.

Read your own forums, KDE User Blogs and the LastFM Forums and you'll see many, many super unhappy users going back to A1 or other media players. A2 until now is just another buggy and ugly player like many, many others.

Maybe.

Even if Amarok 1/2 made probably in the past, I don'k know which one version, some ugly thing with tags 'album'and 'author'of some Johann Sebastian Bach works in ogg, my favourite, Amarok is still my preferred music player.

I admit it caused some psychic lability to me too, but if I'd like to complain, that situation could be my egos much bigger pleasure, than it was. :-)

It just doesn't happen. Remake of Amarok is the killing of a great app, the one that convinced me to switch to Linux.

sticking to 1.4 is a bit like sticking to XP. there doesn't seem to be any reason for it. It is legacy software. There was stiff competition for it. Not necessarily in functionality but in look and feel. There needed to be a change. I think Amarok 2.x has really raised the bar in terms of what is expected from an media application. It's not perfect, but what is?

As usual: great work guys :)

Don't mind about idiots that complain about this and that, as we have seen for kde 4 there always will be some idiots. They will come back with a later release and when they'll realize that are using an obsolete application.

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.
