Amarok - collection - scanning is not finding any music files


Hi All,

I have been using Linux close to 2 years now. One thing that always bewildered me is audio support in Linux. These days I login to windows only for listening to music. After reading various blogs, i decided to give it a try in Linux with Amarok. There again I am facing a problem.

while i try to scan for music files it is not finding any files.

what I did is as follows:
Quote:
Setting --> configure Amarok --> collection --> scan
I have tried with mp3 .wma format files. While I try to add these files individually, Amarok is able to play those.


I am using Amarok 2.3.2 with KDE 4.4.5. Fedora - 12 is my flavor.


Given below is the log obtained with amarok -debug option

Hi greplinux, welcome to LQ. Looks like this may be a bug and it appears there is a solution here:

Hi Peacedog,

That doesn't solve the problem. What more data should I furnish, so that you can guide me out?

Thanks,

Could you please post the ~/.kde4/share/apps/amarok/collection_scan.log ?

Good luck. ;-)
