Whatever the default is, it may not be the right choice, so this really
needs to be an option, which was kinda my point.
Yes, sure, see my previous post. In KsCD in 4.1.4 there was an switch option.
But this is not even the worst point of suckage in the new KsCD, the
system is horrible and the use of the deprecated libtunepimp stack instead
of either current MusicBrainz or FreeDB (Why did they switch away from
that? It's the best option as it also allows submitting your own data!) or
both (but in that case too they need to use the *current* MusicBrainz
stack!) will make it a problem for long-term maintainability. (Basically,
the old libs are in Rawhide just so KsCD keeps building.)
Maybe its not the right answer, but I've to admit that the current version of
KsCD is working better for me than the previous one. Now - with MusicBrainz -
I get songs and artist titles. Since KDE 4.x. I have never seen them. Only
Gnome apps and KDE 3.x - e.g. k3b - showed any titles.
