Introduction

Although Amarok is one the most well-known KDE applications, 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 to ~/.kde/share/config/kioslaverc

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

Enlightenment

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

XFCE

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

Fluxbox

If Amarok is taking to long to load, add

exec kdeinit

to ~/.fluxbox/startup.

LXDE

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