    amarok 1.x backport?

    I hope I don't offend anyone with this....

    Anyone know if it exists or whether it's possible to get the 1.x series of amarok on jaunty?

    Though I like where amarok 2 is going, some of the lack of features will make it somewhat difficult to run a radio show from my laptop.

    Open up Software Sources under System>Administration and on the Third Party Software tab> Add...

    Type or Copy/Paste the following two lines(one at a time)into the 'APT line:' input box and 'Add Source' for both.

    Code:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bogdanb/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
    Code:
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/bogdanb/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
    Close the Software Sources window and 'Reload'.

    Add the key for the PPA by pasting the following into the terminal:

    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com \
    0x1d7e9dd033e89ba781e32a24b9f1c432ae74ae63
    Now update your sources, remove Amarok2 and install Amarok1.4(Paste one line at a time into the terminal):

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove amarok
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install amarok14
    Xine error fix: Settings>Configure Amarok>Output Plugin(drop down menu)>Alsa

    You are done.

    Enjoy Amarok as it should have(in my opinion)remained!!

    This is working for me as I type on Jaunty x64. and also Jaunty x32 on a secondary machine.

    Respect to the original poster/hoster of the sources, I have no idea where on the net I got them from now but they still work (I just used them now) so gratz.

    Doh, I thought I had subscribed to this thread, and I guess I haven't. Thanks so much for the info, I'm setting things right, right now. I thought I could manage with 2.1 but it started pissing me off again yesterday, and this morning I saw it was using 625M of ram, that's just not right.

    Doesn't work on Kubuntu 9.04 AMD64 with KDE 4.3 Beta 2.

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    amarok14: Depends: amarok14-common (>= 2:1.4.10-0ubuntu3~ppa3) but it is not going to be installed
    E: Broken packages

    I was using the packages in this ppa just fine up until tonight. I upgraded the packages on my computer and suddenly it uninstalled amarok14. Trying to reinstall it gives me the same error about depending on amarok14-common, even though I have the exact same version of amarok14-common that it wants already installed. I'm wondering if they tried to update the packages and broke something? Can anybody confirm this?

    For now I have to use Amarok 2 or Exaile to play music...

    Re: amarok 1.x backport?

    Did something I should have done from the get go: I looked at the maintainer's page (https://launchpad.net/~bogdanb/+archive/ppa) and sure enough, the amarok14 package was changed changed 9 hours ago. So for now it seems like the amarok14 package is broken. So unless somebody knows how to obtain the old version (if that is even possible) or fix the install issue themselves, we're stuck without Amarok 1.4 for now. Hopefully, it is fixed soon.

    Thumbs down Re: amarok 1.x backport?

    I had the same problems after updating today

    Luckily I still had the old amarok14 *.deb files in

    Code:
    /var/cache/apt/archives
    I could install them manually with
    Code:
    dpkg -i
    You will have to look for the following filenames or similar ones:

    amarok14_2%3a1.4.10-0ubuntu3~ppa2_i386.deb
    amarok14-common_2%3a1.4.10-0ubuntu3~ppa2_all.deb
    amarok14-engine-xine_2%3a1.4.10-0ubuntu3~ppa2_i386.deb

    I have uploaded my files here in case you can not find them:

    http://www.2shared.com/file/6223745/.../amarok14.html

    I have put them in a tar ball for convenience so you will have to untar it before you can install them:

    Code:
    tar xvf amarok14.tar
    Please keep in mind that installing those packages manually is a quick and dirty workaround, so no guarantees!!!

    It brought back my beloved amarok14 but that does not mean it will work for you.

    Smile Re: amarok 1.x backport?

    kili9r, thank you.

    I extracted the tar and then ran "sudo dpkg -i amarok*". I now have a working Amarok 1.4.
