Does anybody know how to compile Amarok in a way that it provides the Helix-engine? Right now it always ends up with:
=== Amarok - PLUGINS ========================================================
= The following extra functionality will NOT be included:
= - NMM-engine
= - Helix-engine
= - yauap-engine
= - MySql Support
= - Postgresql Support
= - MP4/AAC Tag Write Support
= - iPod Support
= - iRiver iFP Support
= - Creative Nomad Jukebox Support
= - Rio Karma Support
= The following extra functionality will be included:
= + xine-engine
= + libvisual Support
= + Konqueror Sidebar
= + MusicBrainz Support
= + MTP Device Support
= + DAAP Music Sharing Support
I tried to find the Helix sources or devel-packages but no success...
Hello, I assume you are using Suse. Not sure which package manager you are using yast, apt, smart but as I remeber it amarok plugins were in the repos simply install plugins and then go to the configure amarok menu and choose helix-engine.
Thanks for the answer, but that was not was I asked for.
The rpms you pointed me to (amarok-helix-1.3.8-34) are far to old and not supported anymore. Amarok is now at 1.4.5. As far as I know, there are problems with the helix-community or something like this.
So once again: What needs to be installed (and how) that after "configure" of Amarok the Helix-engine pops up under extra functionality? TIA!
I have done this (./configure --with-helix)already with no positive result.
I don't know, why the system here calls me a "NEWBIE", whereas I am working with Linux and UNIX since 1990. I am pretty much a commandline-crack...
Back to the topic: This option does not work if the helix-headers or sources are not installed. But I don't know where or how to get them. If it was so simply as you said, why is "guru" not providing these packages anymore for SuSE?
Everyones a newbie here if they don't post-whore. https://helixcommunity.org/downloads/
You should be able to compile helix first, then use the --with-helix flag to get it to build in Amarok. I have had success with this, on opensuse 10.2 .
