I have just installed Amarok media player from synaptic package manager. It downloaded 115 files of 105 mb. It opens, I can add music files but the files don't play. What should I do?

Thanks
Shaquille

Hi shaquille.

You may need to add two things from synaptic.


libxine1-ffmpeg



gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly

See if they are installed.

There is a new release of amarok on may 31. It probably won't be in synaptic for a while.

I put this code in terminal to get Amarok to play music:


sudo apt-get install libxine1-plugins

When I installed 64 bit Karmic Koala and Amarok wouldn't play any music files.
Put above code in terminal and Amarok plays music files again as it did with Jaunty.
