For the 2.5.90 build you can download the unstriped build and run it within gdb, to get gdb download the mingw build MinGW-w64

Snarl/Growl Support

To enable Snarl or Growl support:

  1. In the Amarok settings dialog go to the section about Notifications and enable "Use system notifications"
  2. Start Snorenotify
  3. Then select your notification backend in the snore taskbar menu.


  1. i-pod support, building of libgpod is possible but device is not recognised by solid.
  2. ums recognition, fix solid
  3. upnp, sometimes the upnp collection is found but no tracks are available, most of the time upnp doesn't show up
  4. transcoding, work in progress, compile missing dependencies
  5. audiocd recognition, fix solid
