    why not just use clementine its written in qt4 and is supposed to be an amarok 1.4 replacement

    I’m still just using Amarok14 from the ppa:bogdanb list.

    1) Run
    add-apt-repository ppa:bogdanb/ppa
    2) Open “/etc/apt/sources.list.d/bogdanb-ppa-lucid.list” and change “lucid” to “karmic”

    Hopefully amarok2 is getting better. I’m ready to switch soon. About to test it myself actually.
