Stopping amarok amazon prompt


Sometime when I was trying to get the audio working amarok got strarted. Now, every time I log on it wants info for amazon.com. I don't want to use amarok.

Where is this getting started from and how do I keep it from starting?

I don't know what you're talking about.

Can you post a screenshot?

I am not o that system, but the thing is when I log on via xdm amarok is started, and since I never set it up, it asks me to complete setup. The bottom line is. I don't want it started at log on at all. So, where would it be started at? Which file. I looked in .bashrc, etc. There is no .xinitrc or xsession in user home.

Depends upon what DE you're using. I use xfce, so autostarted stuff is here:
Code:
james@tardis:~$ ls .config/autostart/
blueman.desktop  hplip-systray.desktop  nm-applet.desktop  wicd-tray.desktop
I don't used KDE on this machine, but it puts Autostart stuff here:
Code:
james@tardis:~$ ls .kde/Autostart/
james@tardis:~$
I found these subdirectories because I remembered that autostart directories are used, so I did this from my home directory:
Code:
james@tardis:~$ find . -name \*uto\*
./.kde/Autostart
./.kde/share/config/kded_device_automounterrc
./.kde/share/apps/konqueror/autosave
./.config/autostart
EDIT: After doing a 'man find', this works better:
Code:
james@tardis:~$ find . -iname autostart
./.kde/Autostart
./.config/autostart
james@tardis:~$

I vaguely remember getting annoyed by the same thing. I also remember it can be deactivated in the settings. Somewhere...

I would just uninstall amarok completely and install clementine as a replacement (which I've done). I think clementine is better anyway.

You could probably also prevent this by removing amarok (.desktop) from /usr/share/kde4/services... but I don't have it installed to verify.

Exactly how I deal with Amarok also. Uninstall the bloated thing and install Clementine, which is quite a bit better IMO.
