mp3 - mpg123 works; amarok doesn't?


I am running slackware 12.0, and just copied all my *mp3 files from my window's partition to linux. I can play mp3 files using mpg123, however, I can't listen to them in Amarok?

I have one solution to this, which isn't the preferred method. I could use the ncurses library to make an interference to browse the music files, and then use the system() command to play them.

Hmm, you're likely to be missing a package. Post back with any *xine*, amarok*, and w32codec* packages you have installed and available for install.

I have made a "full install" when I installed slackware, so every package listen in slackware 12.0 was installed. http://packages.slackware.it/

I will however post slocate and whereis:

slocate *xine*
whereis *xine* - no wildcard (*) support?

slocate amarok*
whereis amarok* - no wildcard support?

And no w32codec* in slocate or whereis. I can play wmv videos in xine though, if that matters.

I hope that helped.

Hmm, the package I have in opensuse 10.2 is amarok-xine-1.4.6-12. I think this is needed in addition to the other packages to get MP3 support in amarok, but this situation might only apply in opensuse. Beyond that I have no other ideas.

My slackware install was working pretty much out of the box with amarok, though I don't remember if there was a package like amarok-xine or not. If you did a full install you might have multiple engines for amarok, if so maybe take a look to see if any work better. You can change this under Settings>Configure Amarok>Engine. The xine engine has worked well for me.

Heh...that was a stupid problem. The permissions where set to root, because I copied them over from my windows partition while logged into root, and not my user. So I changed them, and it works perfectly.

Well thanks for the effort anyway.
