I am new to SUSE Linux just installed a week and half ago. I have posted this question in another thread, but thought this would be more relevant here.
I have amarok installed on KDE 3.5 with the following engines Helix, Xine, gstreamer, Arts, and <no engine>. Each time I want to pla a streaming audio channel it plays but no sound comes out. All volume settings on system are NOT mute. Systems sound works fine.
If I try fidling around with the engine settings, amarok crashes. I have even tried updating the packages and checking for dependencies, but it still giving me problems.
How do I get amarok to play sound? Alternatively tell me what audio player to use to play streaming audio without actually going to e.g. shoutcast website. Real player 10 plays *.pls files so that is cool. But what I want is something with all the stations in one place, much like Winamp Media Library. Any such thing in Linux?
Once again thanks for the great help I get here!
Sorry this is the error whne I choose Helix: amaroK could not initialize the helix-engine. Please check the paths in "amaroK Settings" -> "Engine"
And this when I Choose aRTs engine: There was an error loading libamarokarts. First try:
killall -9 artsd && amarok
If that does not work then amaroK was probably installed with the wrong prefix; please re-configure amaroK using:
./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix` && su -c "make install"
I had to download other packages like Kaffiene, Totem and with their dependencies...seem to have fixed whatver was the problem. The way I did this in YaST2 was to search for "media" and download ALL media players and checked for dependencies. It worked.
