  1. The GPG Key part code seems to be not properly formatted..

    sudo apt-key adv –recv-keys –keyserver 0×1d7e9dd033e89ba781e32a24b9f1c432ae74ae63

    Can you please tell us the correct Code one or the GUI Alternative…

  5. Cool. Thanks for sharing. I couldn’t get the new amerok to work, but 1.4 works like a charm.

  6. Thank you so much! Amarok 2 has done nothing but give me problems and made me wish for dropped features, but now I have my old Amarok back! Thanks!

  7. Fantastic, it worked for me. Thank you very much.
    I have stopped playing music in my Ubuntu machine because I couldn’t deal with the interface of Amarok 2. It was just

    How did it happen that such a good program did so badly on its big upgrade?

  8. Hi! Everything works fine, but some time ago my Amarok stopped playing mp3 files… I do not know what’s the problem.

  9. Beautiful!!! I loved Amarok, but they just killed the poor thing (bloated to death) in version 2. I’ve been using Rhythmbox and suffering through it’s podcast problems … it will be so nice to have a working, full-featured (podcasts, music library, etc) music player again.

  10. Thanks man!!! this worked like a charm^_^
    @ Pete Nelson – rythmbox is a real pain in the ass… i actually started coding my personal media player, now that amarok is baq i can rest a bit and think bout nice features for it

  11. Now, if someone could come up with a way for Amarok 1.4 Handbook to be accessible from the F1 key or the Help menu while running in Gnome. Better yet, how about a version of Amarok that is ported to Gnome and uses the Gnome “Yelp” help browser? I’ve tried various media players available for Linux and they all fall short of Winamp 2.78 on Windows, and that program was released about 10 years ago! Pathetic.

  12. Thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you are my personal hero now XD
