amarok does not connect to ipod anymore

Bug #215160 reported by Oliver on 2008-04-10
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
amarok (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: amarok

I'm running hardy, after todays update amarok (1.4.9-0ubuntu1 0) can fetch album art again, it recognize my ipod nano 3. Gen (attached Pic)
but hitting the "Verbinden/Connect" button does not connect it anymore.
By the way rhythmbox works like a charm ;)

I am experiencing the same behavior (8.04 Hardy Kubuntu fully up to date as of 04/10/2008 @ 10:30AM EDT).

Amarok 1.4.8 would not auto mount the ipod, but I could manually mount it then "connect" it in Amarok. "Disconnect" from within Amarok worked perfectly to unmount the device.
But now w/ 1.4.9, Amarok will not connect at all, I can mount the ipod manually, and click "connect" in Amarok and nothing happens.

This happens to me too. 8.04 Hardy Ubuntu. Amarok 1.4.9, I cannot get Amarok to recognize or manage my iPod, even when explicitly setting the mount point.

It also appears that Gnome is ignoring the System > Preferences > Preferred Applications > Multimedia Tab as it always launches rhythmbox when plugging in the iPod Video 5G. I have this set to Custom > amarok and it appears to be reflected in the gconf setup yet amarok is never launched.

Kind regards,
