I've removed the dependency with libssh-gnutls and included a patch to found the mariadb database. Thanks to @ideal for this. Please let me know if you continue having issues with this package.

Thank you for updating the package. Few issues:

  • Lyrics are not working, On a debug console I get (for example):

amarok: BEGIN: void LyricsManager::lyricsLoaded(const QUrl&, const QByteArray&, const NetworkAccessManagerProxy::Error&) amarok: [WARNING] [LyricsManager] No track belongs to this url: " Sky Full of Stars" amarok: END__: void LyricsManager::lyricsLoaded(const QUrl&, const QByteArray&, const NetworkAccessManagerProxy::Error&) [Took: 0s]

  • Activating the Wikipedia applet will shoot CPU use through the roof.

As per another comment the above will be nice to have working but both issues seem to be upstream.

@Tyomix I don't know if the functionality you describe is related to scripting. If you tell me which scripts you are using I can try to fix them, but being not an expert I can't promise anything.

@snack, OMG so complicated.. tried to create such file but still not works. BTW I want Amarok to just show lyrics and wikipedia articles of currently playing song like it works in kde4. Is it connected with scripts functionality?

snack commented on 2019-09-15 10:03

@Tyomix sorry, I forgot to say that scripts needs to be ported. If you start amarok from command line with --debug option you will probably see some error message like:

[ERROR__] [ScriptManager] script.json for "/home/mori/.local/share/amarok/scripts/BurnPlaylist/main.js" is missing!

You need to produce a script.json file like this:

"KPlugin": {
"Category": "Scriptable Service",
"Id": "BurnPlayList",
"Version": "1.0.1",
"Dependencies": ["Amarok2.0"],
"EnabledByDefault": "true"

in order for the script to be loaded. More porting is likely necessary, depending on the content of the script itself. I am not an expert but I can try to provide some assistance if needed. Please move this discussion to the amarok-scripting page.

@snack I've installed your package "amarok-scripting" instead of this one, but still get empty scripts window. Tried to install some scripts via KDE store ("Manage scripts") and "Local script". How to fix?

Thanks @snack. I'll check it out and report on that page. Cheers.

I've been able to restore the scripting functionality, at least partially (i.e. my script now works). I have uploaded a new AUR package amarok-scripting, try it if you need scripting.

For those complaining about scripts: they do not work because the QtScript support has been removed, probably due to the fact that QtScript is deprecated in Qt5 and will probably be removed in Qt6. I've been able to revert the modification and the script engine works again (since QtScript is still available in Qt5 for backwards compatibility). However the Qt bindings previously provided by qtscriptgenerator are no longer available, so all the scripts making use of Qt classes will not work.

FWIW I also can't seem to get scripts working, nor scrobbling. I tried to install some lyrics scripts via the "Manage Scripts" button. These installed, but didn't show up in the main scripts list.

EtiennePerot commented on 2019-05-06 20:49 scrobbling doesn't appear to be working. I have liblastfm-qt5 installed but there is simply no more setting in Amarok's settings about this. Is the library not being detected as installed?
