Description Daigoro Toyama 2006-06-21 10:57:19 EDT
Description of problem:

JuK will not retrieve album cover images from the Internet using its Cover
Manager feature. And yes, I am connected to the Internet.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

JuK 2.3.2

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run JuK.
2. Create the playlist of your favourite album (let's use "Jazz" by Queen).
3. Go to Tagger -> Cover Manager -> Get Cover From Internet.
Actual results:

A "Cover Downloader" dialog box pops up saying "No matching images found, please
enter new search terms." The line edit box has the current search time, "Queen
Jazz" in the above case.

Expected results:

A list of available cover images to choose from should pop up.

Additional info:

The feature was working well up to KDE 3.5.2.

the kde packages in FC4/FC5 does not included juk, i assume you have
installed kde packages from http://kde-redhat.unl.edu/yum/fedora/fedora/4.

Please report this bug to http://kde-redhat.unl.edu/yum/fedora/fedora/4.

I installed it from Fedora Extras. Is Extras not covered by Red Hat?

$ rpm -q --whatprovides `which juk`
Comment 3 Ngo Than 2006-06-22 11:44:24 EDT
oh, you have selected wrong product, it should be fedora-extras.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2006-06-22 14:55:39 EDT
FYI, juk in turn uses libtunepimp to fetch tagging information.
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2006-06-22 14:59:57 EDT
I can confirm the juk's cover fetching doesn't work for me either.  
amarok, which uses libtunepimp similarly, *does* work.
Comment 6 Daigoro Toyama 2006-06-22 23:01:51 EDT

Thanks for the correction.

Rex and others,

JuK for FC5 works fine. Looks like the FC5 version uses MusicBrainz, which as I
understand is a proxy to get around the limitation Amazon poses. (Please correct
me if I'm wrong.) I suppose it is not the case with the FC4 version?
