Finally the new Amarok is out. I just got it and it's working great! Thought I'd let everyone know. It's in the repo's so you can apt-get it. Enjoy!

I did run into one problem being after the upgrade, my collection dissappeared and after rescanning, it was still blank. So far I am the only one with this problem but thought I would post the solution just in case. After trying everything, I discovered that by moving the ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok directory to a temp one and restarting amaroK the problem was fixed. I then exited and copied back over my albumcovers and themes directory and also the streambrowser_save.xml file. Starting amaroK back up again everything worked perfectly. Sehr glücklich Enjoy the new version, it's definently nice!

Update: This seems to be if using sqlite, mysql does not seem to be affected by this (to my knowlege)

my collection is blank as well... all the artist and album names, but no files. Rescanning doesn't help. do you mean rename ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok to soemthing like ~/.kde/share/apps/amaroktemp then restart and rescan? are the album covers and themes in that dir?

ok, did my first remote dist-upgrade! (I am not at home, and am using the computer using vnc and ssh), and amarok works. Must have needed a shove to remember to change things!

Thanks for the heads up, MikeShepard! I'm getting it now!

EDIT: I got it, and my lyrics weren't working. The aforementioned folder renaming fixed my collection, but not the lyrics fetching. After evaluating the error code, I realized that the lyrics scripts relied on ruby. A simple "apt-get insall ruby" solved the lyrics fetching problems. amaroK 1.4 is SEXY.

Thanks for the post! I upgraded and love the new version. I have been amazed by this app since I first tried it a few months back.

BTW - my collection was intact after the install... Yay!!

EDIT: Oops... I thought they were there but had to do the trick in order to see the actual individual files and not just the folder names.

What's that about the mood bars? And: did the points system changed? All tracks stay at 0 and when I manually set a song to a higher value it is reset to 0 after playing...

Hey Jesseman! Thanks for the lyrics solution, didn't even notice it but same problem here. Ruby fixed it. I'm just trying to figure out now how to get the gapless playback working, I don't see an option for it anywhere. But fear not, I will post a solution when I figure it out.

Also I'll figure out the rating problem in a bit, it seems to be another problem with sqlite, running mysql instead does fix the problem. It seems the rating/score for sqlite is stored in a file at ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/current.xml . I'm not sure yet why sqlite doesn't add the info to the file, but I am still working on it. Mysql stores the info in it's data base under amarok -> statistics -> song which would explain why one works and the other doesn't. Haven't given up yet Smilie

FYI: I am also posting all these solutions on the amaroK forum for the developers to know, so no need to repost there.

-Mike

If you turn on Mood Bars in the settings dialog and then show a mood column in the playlist you get a weird colour representation of the music.... not sure how its calculated, but its interesting...

theres no dynamic shuffle either Traurig is normal shuffle the same? I liked that mode!

right click on columns in the playlist part of the window, where it says title, artist, year etc and select mood. But makes sure you haev turned it on in the settings dialog first.

The "moods" is a change to the song position bar. Instead of a single color and a pointer showing where you are in the song, this changes it to sheme of different colors on both the player window (if enabled) and on the bottom of the playlist window. It can be enabled under Settings -> Configure amaroK -> General -> Use Moods (check box). It's kinda cool, try it, you might like it Smilie

You can also do it in the way mentioned above post, which will add a column next to every song with a mood bar next to it, but I prefer just having it on the position bar. Sehr glücklich

-Mike

Rick,

Struggling here! Tried right-clicking just about everywhere and don't get the list you mention. Mood ticked in preferences.

In the playlist window where your songs are displayed. On top of them is a row which says: Title, Artist, Album, Length, etc... Right-click on there and go to Show Column and then click Mood at the bottom. That should add a column to the far right of your songs which will show a mood bar for the song playing and others.

ok, in answer to the whole mood questions. It tries to determine what songs you would like to hear based on your mood, so you play one song and click the column it would group others in that row with similar colors, allowing you to easily make a playlist. This is determined by how often you listen to a song, what songs you listen to in that same songs list, ratings, scores, etc.. How often a song is skipped seems to play into this also. There does not seem to be a clear answer yet but that is what I gathered. It is there to help you build a playlist according to your mood, hope this helps. I have to play with it more to give a better answer but that is the basic idea.

It's a cool idea though, I'm going to have to mess with it. I really like the idea. Sehr glücklich

-Mike

@Mike Shepard,

i'm sure you already figured it out, but if not: you can enable gaps between songs or song2song-fadings in the options ...
