Installing Amarok

Amarok can be installed by installing the amarok package. For example, using apt-get:

  1. apt-get install amarok

Amarok versions currently in Debian

Phonon Backends

Amarok plays media via the Phonon multimedia framework. You can choose either VLC (recommended) or GStreamer Phonon backend.


apt-get install phonon-backend-gstreamer


apt-get install phonon-backend-vlc

Please note that some Amarok features might not be available with this backend. See /usr/share/doc/amarok/README.Debian (2.8.0-1 or later) for details.

Xine (Debian oldstable only, deprecated in later versions)

apt-get install phonon-backend-xine

For more on Phonon, see the Phonon page.
