Amarok 2.X proxy settings

Author: | Posted in howto 1 Comment

I’ve been looking for a workaround for quite a while since Amarok developers didn’t put this on top of their priority list. As of version 2.1.1 the player still doesn’t have a proxy setting option in the Settings menu and this can get really annoying when you deal with multiple machines and play music on all of them behind a proxy server.

The only (reliable) solution I’ve found was to manually add the proxy settings to ~/.kde/share/config/kioslaverc:

[$Version]
update_info=kioslave.upd:kde2.2/r1,kioslave.upd:kde2.2/r2,kioslave.upd:kde2.2/r3
[Proxy Settings][$i]
ProxyType=1
httpProxy=http://username:password@proxyserver:port/

I found this workaround on a very useful Ubuntu forum. If you have other solutions please share.
