Amarok 2 Beta in Fedora 9
Posted: 2008-08-25T14:10:22+05:30

Amarok keeps rocking as always. You can grab the rpm from here (thanks to rdieter).

Amarok 2 Beta splash screen

With another great start , the ui as cool as the KDE4.x itself.

Amarok 2 Beta running

Though missing that blue colour, I specially liked the play menu buttons. Btw, remember to delete/rename the old ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/collection.db file as the db schema changed. Now if you want you can undo/redo tracks added in the playlist. You can use middle click on the system tray icon to play/pause. Need to play around some more time to understand the other new features. A screencast is on due for this.

Going around the problem
Posted: 2008-03-31T11:52:38+05:30

I posted this problem , one month back. This started when qt-copy upgraded to Qt4.x . makghosh told me to console login and do a startx , which helped. I just wrote a new .xinitrc file in my home directory. exec ~/kde/bin/startkde And after doing a console login from Ctrl + Alt + F1, I am just typing : startx – :1

Thanks to Hobbes for the command syntax
