Amarok knackered

Amarok 1.98, new look.


All been working well but for past few days it's not picking up any new music added to the hard drive. Even specifically selecting the music or folder still no joy.


Anyone come across this?


FWIW Rhythmbox and Exaile are picking the music up no problems.

I get a pop-up window telling me this:


Amarok could not find any collection plugins. Amarok is now updating the KDE configuration database. Please wait a couple of minutes, then restart Amarok.

If this does not help, it is likely that Amarok is installed under the wrong prefix, please fix your installation using:

$ cd /path/to/amarok/source-code/

$ su -c "make uninstall"

$ ./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix` && su -c "make install"

$ kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental

$ amarok

More information can be found in the README file. For further assistance join us at #amarok on irc.freenode.net.


Looks like it's broke.

What's the output of:

rpm -qa | grep amarok


Also try renaming





to anything (or just cut them an put them somewhere else), then start amarok and see what happens.
