Binary package hint: amarok

1. Open Amarok
2. Menu: Settings

6. Enter both file and directory in the text area, e.g. '%directory - %file'.

8. Switch song or press keyboard shortcut to show OSD.
9. Note how only the path of the directory is displayed in the OSD, and not the file.

This is not a bug. You're just not using the right arguments. It's %filename, not %file.

%file works in some cases due to the way the regular expression parser works. But %filename will work every time.

If you need help figuring out which arguments are available, hover your mouse over that field.

Changed in amarok:
status: New → Invalid

Ok, but then the documentation is wrong cause there it says: "filename = %file".
