Thanks Skerit! Worked like a charm!
I noticed one thing though: After doing an uprgade, libqt3-mt_3.3.8-b-7ubuntu3_amd64.deb was replaced with libqt3-mt_3:3.3.8-b-8ubuntu3_amd64.deb, which makes Amarok crash right after it starts. Installing the older version again everything is fine again. Is there a way to use the newer version or should I try and pin the older version of the package?
This post is a lifesaver. Not a single player available on the repo could do what Amarok 1.4 could when managing my iPods.
Totally made my day! I had to make three minor modifications though: In addition, I needed to download libfftw3-3_3.1.2-3ubuntu1_amd64.deb and libofa0_0.9.3-2ubuntu2_amd64.deb which might be somewhat related to the fact I still had amarok-utils installed for some reason… After getting rid of that hangover it just seems to be working by now, so I guess you really did it again skerit!
Works for 32bit with i386 packages (in the same directory). Thanks a lot!
PERFECT!!! THANKS A LOT!!
It works perfectly on miy 32 bit Ubuntu 12.04 system. For those who wants to run amarok 1.4 on a 32 bit system, just change in the command line the ….amd64.deb on …..i386.deb and it will works.
I LOVE AMAROK 1.4, YOU SAVE MY LIFE (from pressing of my daughters….)
Thanks a million for this page. Had been holding back upgrading to 12.04 just because of lack of support to Amarok 1.4. Now finally took the plunge after going through your post. Though my system is i386 and not amd64, I still found all relevent packages and changed the commands as reqd.
I’m almost there, but ran into a problem right at the very end. After installing Amarok 1.4 as per your instructions, when I ran ‘amarok’ from the terminal to fire it, I got the following error message:
“There was an error setting up inter process communications with KDE. The message returned by the system was : Could not open network socket. Please check that the ‘dcopserver’ program is running.”
Can you please help me get over this?
Thanks in advance,
Prior to libtunepimp5_0.5.3-7.4ubuntu1_amd64.deb I had to install libfftw3-3_3.1.2-3ubuntu1_amd64.deb and libofa0_0.9.3-2ubuntu2_amd64.deb, in order to install kdelibs4c2a_3.5.10.dfsg.1-3ubuntu2_amd64.deb I needed to install libilmbase6_1.0.1-3build2_amd64.deb and libopenexr6_1.6.1-7_amd64.deb. Again: Kudos, Skerit!
great! many thanks skerit
Amarok 1.4 is running well now ( just a little problem remaining into the menu with some english instead of french but I will manage) and so it’s quite better than amarok 2.5 than I feel not too much friendly-user
I tried in Ubuntu 14.04 but it gives me a lot of errors (that I resolved) but I can’t resolve the last one:
kdelibs-bin have conflict with kdelibs4c2a
And I don’t know how to follow. I will try to uninstall “kdelibs-bin” and then install from precise.
Alberto, the tutorial is for a few versions back. The conflict between kdelibs4c2a and kdelibs-bin is built into kdelibs-bin. Appears two files are affected and to keep your modern kde apps working, you want the kdelibs-bin versions. And, to keep your apt world consistent, you need to resolve this.
What I did is a nasty hack, but it worked (as of 3/18/2015). I uninstalled kdelibs-bin, installed kdelibs4c2a, then amarok (there were some other dependencies my system needed – sorry, my terminal buffer was short, but for any missing deps I either got them from apt-get or found them manually).
Then I edited /var/lib/dpkg/status – which in theory is *very* dangerous. I opened it from the terminal with ‘ sudo gedit /var/lib/dpkg/status ‘ then did a CTRL-F on ‘ kdelibs4c2a ‘ , ‘ amarok14 ‘ , and ‘ amarok14-engine-xine ‘. I removed the entire entries – and saved them to another file. Then I saved my changes to /var/lib/dpkg/status. You need to be alert through this operation. To understand the way the entries work, here’s one example:
Status: install ok not-installed
Status: install ok installed

Description: core libraries and binaries for all KDE applications
This package contains all the shared libraries and common core binaries
used by all KDE applications. You need these libraries and binaries to
run KDE applications.
Several scripts included in kdebase-bin, related to the handling of SMB
and NFS shares, require the perl-suid package to work properly.
If you are working with remote filesystems, you may find that fam
is helpful in tracking filesystem updates. If you work only with local
filesystems, then avoid fam (and gamin), since if they are not installed,
KDE will use its own more efficient inotify (or else dnotify) system
So delete (and save elsewhere) entries that look like that.
Then I was able to install k3b, which depends on kdelibs-bin. When the new kdelibs-bin installs, it overwrites two unrelated files that were in kdelibs4c2a and as long as dpkg isn't screaming about them, or about the two packages that depend on kdelibs4c2a (which you just installed), all is well. Apt-get just no longer manages them. If you want Amarok 1.4, which is ancient but still useful, it's not a big deal.
I've so far only tried it in sqlite mode and it works fine. No telling what will happen if you try to use it with mysql.
I also had to grab some files from a different mirror since some links were dead. For mirror.pnl.gov I substituted the tds.net ubuntu mirror – a decent one in Wisconsin, US – and most everything was there in the expected folders. I googled a few other files and found reputable ubuntu or debian mirrors that had them. Some of the notable ones are in the 'arts' family – old kde sound support packages. Remarkably, they still work for me on 14.04, many years later.
Good luck. Hope this helps.
