Erste Schritte

Starting Amarok

If you already know your way around your operating system, you probably also know how to start Amarok, and you can continue. Else, continue reading.

From Plasma

If you are running the Plasma Workspace, you can start Amarok by either:

  • pressing on Kickoff and then Multimedia -> Amarok.
  • running KRunner (Alt+F2 by default), enter amarok and then press Enter.

If you select "No" in this dialog, you will be presented with another which allows you to select your music folder:


See Setting Up a Collection

Once you have selected the folder where your music is, Amarok will scan the folder and sub-folders, creating the collection. Depending on the number of tracks and the speed of the location this can take some time.

Closing Amarok

If you want to close Amarok:

  • Type Ctrl+Q when you are in the Amarok window, or
  • Select the Quit option in the Amarok menu, or
  • Right-click on the blue wolf icon in the System Tray at the bottom of your screen. You will be presented with the following:

If you close the Amarok window by clicking Close on the window border, Amarok will continue to run in the background and only show the blue wolf icon in the System Tray:


If you log out of your session or shut down your computer without quitting Amarok, some of your settings will not be saved.
