The newly added section might be a bit cryptic to som users. In

'If you find that most of your music is recognised by Amarok, but some folders are not properly picked up, 'touch' those folders, and the next scan will index them.',

I would suggest that the last two subparagraphs (from 'touch') are replaced by something like

open a console and type touch folder where folder is the path to the folder, and then restart Amarok.

(or whatever it takes to force a rescan). Is that too much detail? --Claus chr 18 September 2009

fair comment. I was in a hurry to get the information down before going to a meeting, and afraid that I'd forget to do it if I left it until later. I'm not sure whether restarting Amarok is the best advice, so I've put in a compromise statement :-) Feel free to alter it if you know Amarok better than I do. --annew 16:18, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
I was just guessing. It turns out You are right, though. There is an option in the settings dialog to rescan the collection. I added a line to explain that. --Claus chr 20 September 2009
