[SOLVED] Amarok startup error

After installing Amarok (pacman -S amarok ), it give following error on startup.

Amarok could not find any collection plugins. It is possible that Amarok is installed under the wrong prefix, please fix your installation using:
$ cd /path/to/amarok/source-code/
$ su -c "make uninstall"
$ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` && su -c "make install"
$ kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental
$ amarok
More information can be found in the README file. For further assistance join us at #amarok on

Any suggestion ???
Thanks in advance.... smile

Re: [SOLVED] Amarok startup error

I had this error recently, following a system update.  My solution was different, so I thought I'd put it here in case someone else happens upon this thread via search engine.

I ran "amarok --debug" and found the problem was "( cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)".  I hadn't yet replaced MySQL with MariaDB, which is why Amarok broke for me on my last major upgrade.  Now that I've installed MariaDB, Amarok is working perfectly again.

Re: [SOLVED] Amarok startup error

I had the same problem today after an update.

I I start "amrok --debug" I got :

QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave.
unnamed app(1122): KUniqueApplication: Cannot find the D-Bus session server:  "Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."

unnamed app(1121): KUniqueApplication: Pipe closed unexpectedly.

Any new suggestion ?


1) Remove AMAROK
2) Delete all reference in /home/user/.kde4 of amarok
3) Reinstall AMAROK

Now works!
