I am running Ubunutu 8.10 32 bit. I installed amarok with synaptic. When I chose the context tab and artist, I get a list of a languages or nothing at all.

I have searched google etc but have not found a solution.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. This is my favorite feature in amarok

I've got no solution either and exactly the same problem. Only since a couple of weeks. Before I never had that problem. The only difference is, I'm using 64 instead of 32.

Same problem here, and I'm using a dell mini 9 8.04 default install.

I found a possible solution, install amarok 1.4.10 from here (http://janitux.boaboa.org/etc/amarok_1.4.10-0ubuntu3_i386.deb)
http://janitux.boaboa.org/etc/amarok_1.4.10-0ubuntu3_i386.deb

And do


echo amarok hold| sudo dpkg --set-selections

In terminal to avoid future updates that might damage it again.
