Amarok + Last.fm: Can't connect - How to set up port number? (Debian Lenny)
Whoever it is that reads these endless pleas for help, god bless you.
I recently installed Amarok on Debian Lenny. It's absolutely fantastic! However, I can't connect to Last.fm / streaming radio.
During the installation process, it tried to auto-setup my network configuration for Last.fm, etc - asked which communications port number to connect to, can't remember what number it suggested. It failed to connect, so I skipped it.
Now, I don't know how to go back and set it up (Even if I knew which port number to connect to).
I've *scoured* the internet for answers. I guess I don't know what to look for. Can anyone give me some direction here?
You should be able to setup Last.fm under Settings--> Configure Amarok--> Internet Services. It should then appear under the Internet section on the left hand side.
Thank you for responding!
But... There is no "internet" tab under the configure menu. Perhaps a different version? I have Amarok v1.4. (Under Debian Lenny / GNOME)
My options in the left pane of "Configure Amarok" are:
Geneneral / Appearance / Playback / OSD / Engine / Collection / Last.FM / Devices
Under Last.fm, I only have login options.
Under Engine, I have a likely-sounding "HTTP proxy for streaming", but I think that's related to streaming from a server of my own, right?
I *am* able to get streaming music from Shoutcast / Coolstreams.
But still not Last.FM - So, internet connection is working, but not Last.FM
fields - I have a very similar problem, but using rhythmbox. My problem is basically identical. I can play everything, except anything from last.fm. Any solution here? I have ubuntu jaunty.
Download the Scrobbler to connect your media player to Last.fm
i think you need to go here and get add on. www last.fm / download
i am downloading this add on to amarok to see if it solves my issue
i take that back (above)
i am downloading amarok 2.0 from suse 11.1 and it should work right out the bag! so update amarok of you can.
