Amarok updating system configuration forever
To give Obsidian Music a try, begin by creating a database for Amarok.Currently, the player can connect to My SQL, Postgre SQL, and SQLite databases.
New features rarely surface, and some fresh themes would be really welcome.When it comes to playing music in Linux, Amarok is one of the best audio players out there.It offers almost everything you need, from a clean, intuitive interface to a range of useful scripts.I want to say first that this is not the only way of setting up such a system.There are many ways of achieving this goal but this is the way I take.We'll use good old My SQL to create a new database named amarok and grant full access to it to a user called john, also from the local network: Next, download the Obsidian Music package and unpack the files into /var/www/amarok (or whatever Apache root directory you wish). Edit /var/www/amarok/inc/so that it looks something like this: "localhost"); $dbtype = 0; $locked = true; $authtype = 1; $cookielen = 60; $playlist = 3; $gzip = true; $cache = true; $paginate = true; $ressize = 200; $language = "en_us"; $sitename = "My MP3 Collection"; $theme = "default"; $allowchoose = false; $extrainfo = false; $errorreporting = false; $enabled = true; ?
, and when you click on a song link in the Obsidian Music pages, it will be archived as a tar file and sent to your browser.
You should be prompted for a username and password.
Log in with one of the user accounts you made and explore what Obsidian Music has to offer.
As you might have noticed, a few applications are redundant, for example there are two CD/DVD burning applications in my list (Brasero, K3B).
If you know which one you like best, you obviously don't need to install the other applications, however if you like choice, then of course you can install both. The installation of the base system is easy as 1-2-3 because the Ubuntu installer doesn't offer a lot of options to choose from, so you cannot go wrong.
The Obsidian Music package includes a Python script in its /inc/auth subdirectory that you can use to generate SHA1-encrypted passwords.
