May end-users please have prompt during Amarok install to install recommended packages to get file formats to work?

Asked by rusivi2 on 2009-12-17

May end-users please have a prompt during Amarok install, recommending packages to get commonly used file formats to work (e.g. mp4, mp3, etc.)?

This is asked in response to invalid bugs:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/amarok/+bug/494851
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/amarok/+bug/496811

and after a question/answer search.

This is requested because Amarok is too good of an application for non-technical end-users to not have click, install, and work usability.

Example of this is if Amarok is installed through the Ubuntu Software Center, a prompt pops up right before install finalization asking the user if they want to play mp4/mp3, then suggest packages that are known to work for their distro (no promises, just recommendations ;) Same prompt phenomenon if downloaded through Synaptic Package Manager or download .deb file and installed.

Amarok is approaching iTunes usability and zero configuration (gold standard), implementation of this recommendation furthers this.
