    Just wondering if Amarok used to play .rm files on its own without any codecs manually downloaded and installed .With Hardy , I had trouble playing rm files with Amarok and it used to get – in layman terms – STUCK. I will have to kill the app and re-launch for any mp3’s. But with Ibex , when I clicked an rm file ( i had kept the file association .rm to be opened by some other player .. i guess totem) Amarok started playing it flawlessly. They added something ?

    Amarok is not installed in your Intrepid Ibex. It’s an optional application. After install Amarok, you should download and install plugins automatically when run Amarok so it can play any multimedia file…
