Amarok - "Uninstall" Magnatunes db?


Running Kubuntu Feisty on a Dell notebook (with compiz...).

Alright, so I was poking around the Amarok UI, pulled up the Magnatunes sidebar, read a little, and clicked "update", just to see what would happen.

'Twas stupid of me, clicking things without knowing what they do

Anyway, the thing spent about one and a half minutes and three "not responding" sessions (where compiz greys out the windows) downloading and installing the Magnatunes song database. After a little more investigation, I've decided I'd rather not have this "database" taking up drive space. Is there anyway to "un-update" (read: remove) the Magnatunes database?

Google hasn't yielded much for me..."amarok remove magnatune database" didn't turn up any promising titles...and sorry if I missed something there >_<

I realize that this may or may not be my biggest space-taker, but, since I don't need or want it, I'd rather it be gone.

Thanks!

although I have never downloaded that database, I'd bet it's located somewhere here - home/you/.kde/apps/amarok, or any subfolder. Just delete it when you found it.
