err messages on console
Description of problem:
amarok started from cmd line for err messages. attached
Playing a file it err out the following message.
QString::arg: Argument missing: Amarok - No track playing., 0:00
The same runs ok in other applications.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Which DE in use? gnome? kde?
yum update @sound-and-video
install anything that was previously missing?
Kde is in use.
I checked the install with package-cleanup --problems and there was no dependency
Then I did as you told me and yum pulled in two packages:
which solved the problem. yum update @sound-and-video is a new command for me.
I think these packages should have been pulled in automatically or package-cleanup should have reported them missing
Can't add hard deps, as those packages are not in fedora.
In short, you were trying to play nonfree/pantented media files, for which fedora doesn't support out of the box (ie, mp3's, etc...).
Fwiw, it *is* documented at amarok's site
and probably should be @ rpmfusion as well.
That said, amarok's feedback for when trying to play unsupported filetypes can/should be more informative (other than simply not working).
I understand, but actually I never came across this before with amarok,
I mean such dependencies used to get pulled in.
This is the only application I use to listen to music for quite long now and
since the version changed and it was not working and there was no way I could
make out what was happening as I thought I had all rpms installed to listen to
mp3s, also the same mp3s were running in xmms etc
If amarok can inform the user about missing plugins it will become more helpful
to understand its not amarok but something else. Even a message to try 'yum @sound-and-video' can be helpful to fill in the rpm gaps.
Thanks for helping me out and use amarok.
