Amarok glitch, suse 12.1-kde-64bit

I used the one-click multi-media installer. I can play mp3 files, but
it's asking to install mp3 support on boot.  ??

How to fix it?   Thanks.

So in message #6 here: http://tinyurl.com/7ajs53g

Did you make the suggested changes as pointed out by mmcheck?  I do use
Amarok, follow the mmcheck suggestions of course and its not asking to
install anything.  I just add in the Packman repository, allow YaST to
switch Vendor to Packman and update all files as suggestion by mmcheck. 
You have got to be missing something here.

Thank You,

I had another idea. I uninstalled then installed "amarok". I restarted
it and still received the same error. I noticed another amarok in
yast->software, "kde-amarok". So, I unstalled "amarok" and installed
"kde-amarok". I started it and didn't get the error. It appears "amarok"
has a bug.

I am only loading the file called amarok.  When I serach through
openSUSE 12.1, I find it is in Packman, but for 11.4 it is not, but I
did not find a kde-amarok in my repositories.

Thank You,

"Amarok" plays MP3's, but asks for MP3 support. "kde-amarok" is in the
packrepo. I can find it with yast, not on a repo tab.

Before the last os install, all the repos are listed in yast. Now, the
repo list in software isn't there. Upgrade or bug?

Yast-> Software Management  ->  --repo tab--

The repo tab is missing. Apper will find updates. Before the install, I
find the repo tab do right-click, "update if newer version available."

I'll try MMcheck, but again.    Playing MP3's with Amarok.  Restart
amarok. "Do want to install mp3 support?"   Why do I need to install mp3
support when i'm currently playing MP3's???? 

Another Amarok can play mp3's. ??

Yast->software  "kde-amarok"

So I am not sure how you produced the code output but I note one entry
that says "obs://build.opensuse.org/KDE:KDE3".  Unless you are using
only the KDE3 desktop, I would not load amarok from the kde3 repository.
I have installed KDE3 stuff into openSUSE 11.4 before, but one must be
careful just what you mix together and now everything I ever got from
KDE3 is there for KDE4 in Packman including Kaffeine-kde3 when using
openSUSE 12.1.  But, I would make sure amarok was intended for use with
KDE4 and not for kde3 or from a KDE3 repository.  This is something you
can see on the Versions tab when running YaST from KDE4.

Thank You,

I have suse 12.1-kde, latest updates. Select "kde-amarok". Click
versions tab.

"kde-amarok"  KDE3
"amarok"  KDE4

I can just click "don't show this message again.", but do I report this
as bug on "amarok"?  Also, I'm not doing another username and password.
:p

Email the developers to help out?

In openSUSE 12.1 I open YaST / Software / Software Management and
search on amarok.  Once found I open up the versions tab and this is
what I find:

'[image: http://thumbnails53.imagebam.com/16857/8ad6c5168568846.jpg]'
(http://www.imagebam.com/image/8ad6c5168568846)

I have installed Amarok version 2.4.3 and I am just not seeing anything
combining kde3 and Amarok together.

Thank You,

I see "kde3-amarok".  I don't see "kde-amarok".

For amarok itself, there's a version in the opensuse repos and there's
a version in the packman repos.

Yes, I got that notification form amarok when I first used it.  I told
it to go ahead, though I had already installed the multi-media stuff. 
Using amarok again, no additional notice.  Possibly it is looking for
something that was missing.  Or maybe it is just confused.

Then I suggest that the problem is loading Amarok from your KDE3
repository and not from Packman or even the default openSUSE ones for
your version of openSUSE.  It you try to play Amarok before you do your
first openSUSE update and including Packman, you can see a request to
load MP3 support, but it does go away after that update is performed and
its not normal to use Amarok from the KDE3 repository.

Thank You,

In yast-software, I noticed two amarok icons when I selected amarok.
So, I removed the kde3 repo. I uninstalled amarok. I installed amarok.
Still see the double icon.

"Phonon claims it can't play mp3 files".  This mean something to you?

So I am using Amarok 2.4.3 under KDE 4.7.2 and when I go to Tools /
Equalizer, I can make it work.  If you can't get the Equalizer to work,
you have the wrong version of Phonon-backend and mine is at 4.5.1.  I
can attest to the fact that mixing Amarok, KDE desktop and Phonon
versions can cause Amarok to not work and in fact I had to switch to
Clementine 0.7.1 in openSUSE 11.4 for a while until I got KDE upgraded
to 4.7.2 which was not part of the original release but this is standard
in openSUSE 12.1 right now.

Thank You,

First, Amarok CAN play MP3 files. I can go to the Tools / Equalizer. I
get the message at startup(before do not show again). The phonon message
in small window in Amarok. I used the multi-media one-click install.

Amarok installation problems (KDE 4.2, SUSE 11.1)
