Amarok not working right or at all.

Hi there i've had Linux for probably 6-7 months now and until recently I had been using Gnome but now I have switched to KDE. Now to my problem whenever I try to start Amarok (my favorite audio player it used to work) I get the splash screen to come up for a split second and then it goes away and Amarok never starts. Please help me with this it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds like you have a corrupted Amorok file somewhere. Have you tried uninstalling, then re-installing?

Or if not corrupted, there is a permissions problem.
