Introduction

Although, Amarok is one the most well-known KDE application, it can run on other desktop environments too. This section shows how Amarok can be used on non-KDE desktops.

GNOME

To configure the proxy for Amarok on GNOME, modify and add this

[Proxy Settings][$i]
ProxyType=1
httpProxy=http://username:[email protected]:port/
httpsProxy=http://username:[email protected]erver:port/
ftpProxy=http://username:[email protected]:port/

to ~/.kde/share/config/kioslaverc

Enlightenment

The Amarok systray icon does not work by default with E17. So, one should disable the Show tray icon from General Options in Preferences.

XFCE

To launch Amarok faster, enable Launch KDE services on startup by going into Settings -> Advanced and checking the option.

Fluxbox

LXDE

In case Amarok starts slowly in LXDE, you can add kdeinit to the startup applications using the lxsession-edit command.
