Amarok 1.4 on Ubuntu 9.10


Keywords: ubuntu 9.10 amarok 1.4

I still don't like Amarok 2, so here's how I installed Amarok 1.4 on Ubuntu 9.10.

wget 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/bogdanb/amarok14/ubuntu/pool/main/a/amarok/amarok14-common_1.4.10-0ubuntu3~ppa4_all.deb'
wget 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/bogdanb/amarok14/ubuntu/pool/main/a/amarok/amarok14-engine-xine_1.4.10-0ubuntu3~ppa4_i386.deb'
wget 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/bogdanb/amarok14/ubuntu/pool/main/a/amarok/amarok14_1.4.10-0ubuntu3~ppa4_i386.deb'
aptitude install ruby libtunepimp5 libqt3-mt libnjb5 libmysqlclient15off libifp4 kdelibs4c2a libtunepimp5-mp3
dpkg -i amarok14-common_1.4.10-0ubuntu3\~ppa4_all.deb
dpkg -i amarok14-engine-xine_1.4.10-0ubuntu3\~ppa4_i386.deb
dpkg -i amarok14_1.4.10-0ubuntu3\~ppa4_i386.deb
apt-get install -f

Amarok and SPDIF output


To get amarok to use the SPDIF output, first use alsamixer and unmute the IEC958 output.

Then in the Configure Engine section of amarok, use the xine engine, the alsa output plugin, and change the alsa device configuration from:

Mono:        default         4 Channels:       plug:surround40:0
Stereo:      default         6 Channels:       plug:surround51:0

to

Mono:        plug:spdif      4 Channels:       plug:spdif
Stereo:      plug:spdif      6 Channels:       plug:spdif
