    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)
