Ubuntu on Thinkpad X41 - Working With Amarok

Filed under
HowTos

This is one of a number of posts detailing how to install Ubuntu 6.10 (codename Edgy) on a Thinkpad X41. This post focuses on using the amazing music player Amarok. Rather than me going into the many reasons why no other music player even comes close, have a look at it’s website, or read here.

Installation:

Installing couldn’t be easier. Although Amarok is techically a KDE application, and I’ve installed Gnome on my Thinkpad, it will run perfectly fine.

1. Click Applications->Add/Remove
2. Choose Amarok from the list on the right and click OK

Working with Sony Ericsson w810i Walkman:

I own a Sony Ericsson w810i Walkman phone which I’d like to use with Amarok. However, it doesn’t directly support this device, so some slight configuration has to take place.

Full Story.
