No, fetching covers from amazon does not work either. I get this error.
Could not access http://xml.amazon.com/onca/xml3?t=we...s&page=1&f=xml
. Offline mode active.
And I use KDE, not Gnome; So I really don't know why amaroK isn't paying attention to the global proxy I've configured in KDE Control Centre. Is there any other application that doesn't have proxy settings of its own, but takes the settings from KDE Control Center? That way, I can test whether I've configured the proxy correctly there and stop blaming amaroK unnecessarily.
Thanks for the advice. I really appreciate it, since lyrics is the only part I miss in amaroK compared to Windows Media Player.
