Enable Moodbar in Amarok Music Player
Moodbar in amarok it shows you the "mood" of a track, which you can then use to figure out when something interesting happens in the song.
Preparing your system
You need to install all the compilers using the following command
sudo apt-get install build-essential
Now you need to install the libraries and required program
sudo apt-get install fftw3-dev libgstreamer0.10-dev gstreamer0.10-plugins-base gstreamer-editor gstreamer-tools gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly
Install Moodbar in Ubuntu
First download moodbar using the following command
Now you have moodbar-0.1.2.tar.gz file you need to extract using the following command
tar -xzvf moodbar-0.1.2.tar.gz
Now you need to go in to the directory and compile
./configure --prefix=`pkg-config --variable=prefix gstreamer-0.10`
sudo make install
This will complete the installation.
Now you can open Amarok and go to “Settings -> Configure Amarok” and from “General“, select “Use moods“. There are three different colour moods to choose from.
Worked a treat, thanks.
Now if you could post how to reliably rip mp3’s from a CD seeing as Sound Juicer has an annoying bug where things freeze and don’t save when trying to edit profiles in Feisty.
I followed the instructions, but then moodbar would not work for mp3s, but would work for other types such as ogg. I then installed gstreamer0.10-plugins-good as well, and it worked.
