    How-To: Compile Amarok 1.4.10 in Ubuntu 10.04

    I'm a big user of old Amarok and I still using in Lucid; here the how-to compile from source; based on this post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1307737 (thx Seegorkesolot) with some new hints and modified patches.

    This works on Ubuntu (Gnome version) without the official repository version of Amarok installed.

    INSTALL DEPENDENCIES
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libgpod-common libgpod-dev libgpod4 kdelibs4-dev libxine-dev libdbus-qt-1-dev libtag1-dev libsqlite3-dev libtunepimp-dev libmysqlclient15-dev libpq-dev libvisual-0.4-dev libsdl1.2-dev libifp-dev libxine1 libxine1-ffmpeg build-essential checkinstall ruby ruby-dev libruby libltdl-dev
    DOWNLOAD AMAROK SOURCE
    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads
    wget http://download.kde.org/stable/amarok/1.4.10/src/amarok-1.4.10.tar.bz2
    tar -xvf amarok-1.4.10.tar.bz2
    cd amarok-1.4.10
    PATCH FIX THE CODE (fix for GCC, Cover Manager and Wikipedia lookup)
    Code:
    wget http://yep.it/savedpatch/amarok-1.4.10-gcc44.patch -O amarok-1.4.10-gcc44.patch
    patch -p1 < amarok-1.4.10-gcc44.patch
    Code:
    wget http://yep.it/savedpatch/amarok-1.4.10-covermanager-fix.patch -O amarok-1.4.10-covermanager-fix.patch
    patch -p1 < amarok-1.4.10-covermanager-fix.patch
    Code:
    wget http://yep.it/savedpatch/amarok-1.4.10-wikipedia.patch -O amarok-1.4.10-wikipedia.patch
    patch -p1 < amarok-1.4.10-wikipedia.patch
    COMPILE & INSTALL THE APP
    Code:
    ./configure --without-arts
    make
    sudo make install
    RESTORE ORIGINAL APP ICONS (thx zenkaon)
    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads
    wget http://pprc.qmul.ac.uk/~jmorris/personal/amarok/amarok.icons.__usr.share.icons__.tar.gz -O amarok.icons.__usr.share.icons__.tar.gz
    sudo cp ~/Downloads/amarok.icons.__usr.share.icons__.tar.gz /usr/share/icons
    cd /usr/share/icons
    sudo tar zxvf amarok.icons.__usr.share.icons__.tar.gz
    Done! You can now launch Amarok

    NICE TO HAVE (Install when Amarok is executed)

    Hi.. thanks to dentaku65 and Seegorkesolot for making my fav linux audio app (and it's right version.. lol) available in 10.04!!

    INSTALLATION: I followed instructions as per the first post; I ran into troubles, which i fixed by installing the following:
    1) ruby, ruby1.8 and ruby1.8-dev
    2) libltdl-dev

    REMARKS: I don't know if this case applies to everyone! But better to check if the above packages are installed before installing amarok.

    It will also build and run fine on 10.10 w/ a few minor changes, there's also the pana clone
    Atm have both installed, haven't decided which to keep.
