I tried that, in fact I again moved everything Amarok-related to one
side, logged out and in again, and fired up the app. It asked me where
my music collection was, rescanned it, and *still* doesn't find the new
material I added the other day. Which BTW is simply a CD ripped to MP3,
as are many of my other files which do work.
One handy related tool in amarok is the commandline
amarokcollectionscanner (see end for usage)
You could try running:
and see what happens. this tool should be fairly verbose in it's
findings and listing any possible errors or problems it encounters.
$ amarokcollectionscanner --help
Amarok Collection Scanner
Scans directories and outputs a xml file with the results.
For more information see http://amarok.kde.org/wiki/Batch_Mode
Usage: amarokcollectionscanner [options] <Folder(s)>
<Folder(s)> : list of folders to scan
-h, --help : This help text
-v, --version : Print the version of this tool
-r, --recursive : Scan folders recursively
-i, --incremental : Incremental scan (modified folders only)
-s, --restart : After a crash, restart the scanner in its last
--idlepriority : Run at idle priority
--sharedmemory <key> : A shared memory segment to be used for
restarting a scan
--newer <path> : Only scan directories if modification time is
new than <path>
Only useful in incremental scan mode
--batch <path> : Add the directories from the batch xml file
batch file format should look like this:
<mtime>1234</mtime> (this is optional)
You can also use a previous scan result for that.
