Is it possible to install Amarok without KDE?


The package in the Ubuntu repositories requires the kubuntu-desktop metapackage -- but I assume that all of that stuff isn't actually necessary for Amarok to work. Is there some way to install Amarok without all of the rest of KDE?

Sure it's possible - Amarok doesn't need the whole KDE desktop to run, just some KDE libraries. 'sudo apt-get install amarok' should resolve dependencies without installing the whole KDE.

Very true. You can also install from Synaptic and the necessary libraries will automatically be included.

Cheers

Well, shit, I guess I should have checked rather than assuming. I feel dumb now. Thanks for clearing that up, it's installed and working fine.
