That is correct. (You need to install libmtp.)
Also, look up MTP in Wikipedia. They have a udev config file to add in /etc/udev/rules.d/. Copy the contents to an editor and save the file.
When configuring the player, select the last item in the list "MTP Player". Then after connecting to your unit in Amarok, press the small triangle on the right, to read the capabilities of the Zen player.
