Re: [SOLVED] Amarok bug

Welcome to #! smile

I honestly have no idea how to fix this, but I'll ask the powers-that-be to repost it in the 'support' section.

Re: [SOLVED] Amarok bug

Create a file named .asondrc in your home folder. Paste this in:

pcm.dsp {
    type plug
    slave.pcm "dmix"
}

Run

sudo service alsa-utils stop
sudo alsa force-reload
sudo service alsa-utils start

That should be it.

Re: [SOLVED] Amarok bug

I think you might have to use something called dmix.  I'm not exactly sure how to use it, but it's basically a software mixer.  Either that or use PulseAudio.

Re: [SOLVED] Amarok bug

edit the file ~/.asoundrc and change it to:

pcm.pulse {
    type pulse
}

ctl.pulse {
    type pulse
}

pcm.!default {
    type pulse
}

ctl.!default {
    type pulse
}

then reboot or
sudo service alsa-utils stop
sudo alsa force-reload
sudo service alsa-utils start

and check if pulseaudio is running (pulseaudio -D)

Is there a reason you want to use Amarok including all the KDE-dependencies?

Re: [SOLVED] Amarok bug

banshee
clementine
exaile
rhythmbox

these are full-featured players with iPod support. Rhythmbox is rather big, though.

listen
songbird

don't know if they support the iPod

mocp
audacious
deadbeef
mpd (+ncmpcpp/gmpc/sonata/...)

'light-weight' players

I think right now, with Amarok, your pulseaudio doesn't work perfectly because of phonon (in the KDE packages), so it is possible that changing to a non-KDE-player will already solve your playback problem. That's why I asked if you really need the KDE stuff.
