Amarok GUI isn't loading completely

Asked by johny on 2009-06-02

I've got a Wubi install. I installed Amarok and at the moment of launching the GUI loads fine, but as soon as I go to the Configuration --> Internet Services and choose lastfm or magnatune plugin by clicking their configurations "panels", a new configuration window pop out with no input fields to put any text in it - So, it's impossible to login to lasfm neither magnatune.

I'm attaching a screenshoot here : http://img2.imageshack.us/img2/3994/amaroklastfmservice.png

Close amarok completly then try this:

mv ~/.kde/share/config/amarokrc ~/.kde/share/config/amarokrc_old; mv ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok_old

Then rerun amarok, you will need to resetup the player but you will have a default config. If it works then we know the config is bad. You can then either keep the new profile and rebuild, or rename the files back (you will need to close amarok first again) and work out whats going on.

If the rename achieves nothing then rename back and then you know its the app which I suggest you then uninstall (make sure youpurge old configs too) then reinstall

sudo apt-get --purge remove amarok; sudo apt-get --purge autoremove; sudo apt-get clean; sudo apt-get install amarok

Can you help with this problem?
