    Re: [How-To] Install Amarok with MTP-Device Support

    mtp-detect finds my Creative Vision M fine, but the MTP plugin option does not show up in Amarok. I have the latest version (1.4.4). Any ideas?

    Talking Re: [How-To] Install Amarok with MTP-Device Support

    Finally I have managed to install Amarok with MTP Support. Make sure you have all the deps installed. Open a terminal window and copy paste (step by step) each line. Here it is:



    Installing MTP from SVN:

    (Gathered from many sources here and there)

    Start Copy
    cvs -dserver:anonymous@libmtp.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/libmtp login
    cvs -z3 -dserver:anonymous@libmtp.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/libmtp co -P libmtp


    cd libmtp
    ./autogen.sh
    ./configure --prefix=/usr
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo cp libmtp.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
    sudo bash hotplug.sh

    End Copy

    (Answere No when asking "Do you also want to install the old hotplug support (y/n)?
    ")


    Start Copy

    make clean

    End Copy


    Installing Amarok from SVN:
    (http://amarok.kde.org/wiki/Installat...ing_SVN_Amarok)

    Start Copy
    svn co -N svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/extragear/multimedia
    cd multimedia
    svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/KDE/3.5/kde-common/admin
    svn up amarok

    make -f Makefile.cvs
    ./configure --with-libmtp --enable-debug=full --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
    make
    sudo make install
    make clean

    End Copy

    I encountered some errors my self at the end of my make install but i did not have any problems later on. Hope this helps !

    The 1.4.4 version offered up on kubuntu.org for Edgy users wasn't built with MTP support, so you'll need to build Amarok.

    Re: [How-To] Install Amarok with MTP-Device Support

    libmtp-0.1.0.tar.gz is not a directory.


    libmtp-0.1.0/ is.


    So,

    Code:
    cd libmtp-0.1.0/

    Accordingly fixed in the first post. A rewrite of this script is coming by Christmas Day.

    I tried it using the script since last time, this is where I am at. I am new to Ubuntu only about 4 days so I might be in over head.

    ./amarok-with-mtp
    Welcome to my script. This bash script uses a few simple commands to build a recent version of libmtp, and then install a recent version of the Amarok media player so that you may use Amarok with your MTP device, such as a Creative Zen.

    maebe - The scripts are bugged out at the moment. Use the manual instructions starting at "3. Obtain the files."

    Re: [How-To] Install Amarok with MTP-Device Support

    I still doesent get it to work here. I am using Feisty on this computer, and when I try to start Amarok I get this message

    KLibLoader could not load the plugin:
    libamarok_mtp-mediadevice

    Error message:
    libmtp.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    When I try a mtp-detect I get the following message:
    Code:
    andreas@baerbar:~/.amarok-with-mtp_dir/libmtp-0.1.0$ mtp-detect 
    Found non-autodetected device "SanDisk Sansa m240" on USB bus...
    usb_claim_interface(): Device or resource busy
    Connection error.
    No devices.
    andreas@baerbar:~/.amarok-with-mtp_dir/libmtp-0.1.0$
    Is the message I get in my terminal right? And do anyone know what the problem with Amarok is?

    Re: [How-To] Install Amarok with MTP-Device Support

    The terminal message seems a little odd.


    Since you're on feisty, libmtp 0.1.0 is in the repos now.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libmtp2 libmtp-dev
    sudo aptitude reinstall amarok

    Re: [How-To] Install Amarok with MTP-Device Support

    When I connected my Creative Zen micro, mtp did detect it, (even though it is broken) and I got a lot of output with info about the device. But now Amarok has stopped working on my computer. when I start Amarok, it just wont start (and when I start it in a terminal/konsole, I get no output). I've tried to reinstall Amarok many times without luck... I would preffer things to work on that computer... I am almost thinking about moving back to dapper were everything I wanted worked (I am not sure if that will help my MP3-player much since I got that after updating to Feisty) =P

    Anyhow... Do anyone know what could make this happen? Any help is appreciated.

    EDIT: I've tried to just install it from the repos, but things stil doesent work (looks like I can see a bit longer too I can format my c:\ drive with windows xp and replace it with dos and windows 3.11)
