"Amarok was my favorite among Linux media players, until Amarok 2.0 series started coming in. I totally understand that Amarok 2.0 series is a complete rewrite and I really appreciate the effort they have put on upgrading Amarok. But the bottom line is, Amarok 2.0 series is not yet there. And so I settled down with Songbird and I loved it. But had to remove Songbird for reasons you must have already been all too familiar with.

"* Amarok 1.4 series was just perfect. And I wanted it back so badly. And when I finally managed to install Amarok 1.4 in my Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 desktop, I was so damn happy. Here is what you need to do to get the old Amarok 1.4 installed in Ubuntu Lucid, Karmic, Jaunty. "
