Ok. I have no sound or playback from Amarok when I try to use it. Now when I try to get information from the sound Icon on the trayit shows me that there is VLC and Amarok, I am assuming that only one of them can run at a time. How do I shut down the VLC? just Kill it? Then I can run Amarok?

thanks,
ohjrson

You should be able to run both at the same time, just make sure you have the right sound device selected for Amarok in Sound Settings (tray)

Yes Valtam I thought that too, in previous  versions I have had to do nothing. It would just work. But this version for some reason will not play anything, so no sound comes out of Amarok. VLC works fine. But when I try to play something in Amarok it just won't play. So no sound from Amarok. Why will it not play?

If you need to kill vlc, do

Code: [Select]
pkill vlc

You can do

Code: [Select]
ps -ef

to see what processes are running and use the kill command (or if you know the executable command, use pkill command).

Amarok is a media player for the KDE desktop environment, this means when you try to run it on another desktop environment (LL uses XFCE), you will run into issues as you have here, not to mention the nearly 100mb of dependencies Amarok requires. Have you considered other players like https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/index.php?topic=956.msg5671#msg5671

Hello!

As for myself, I try to avoid KDE apps unless I need several of them - enough to justify all those dependencies. Of course, GNOME has its own share of apps that pull down many dependencies...

Well as I have already said, I have had no issue with it before on this machine. And it has worked beautifully and I preferred it to Clementine or VLC or some others. It just suited my needs. I have Clementine installed now and it worked right away. I think I might uninstall and try it again.

However did anyone see anything unusual in the diagnostics I posted from Amarak Diagnostics? I'd like to know if there was anything that seemed off or something.

Thanks
