Description manu.wagner 2011-01-15 23:39:52 UTC
Version:           2.4-GIT (using KDE 4.5.5) 
OS:                Linux

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
launch amarok
connect an ipod handling album covers (ipod touch 2G)
covers do not appear in the device collection tree anymore

Actual Results:  
no covers displayed in tree

Expected Results:  
covers should be displayed in tree if present on device

there was a previous bug, causing amarok not to send covers to ipods anymore.
This has been fixed, luckily.
However, we would like covers to appear in the collection tree also, as they used to.

I'm suffering from the similar, but not the same problem - when songs are first copied to iPod (nano 4g), the covers are okay, but they disapprear from both iPod and Amarok collection browser if I add new songs to iPod the other day.

Do you see similar effecs, or do your covers stay on iPod forever?

Rework MediaDeviceAlbum cover-related functions, remove "Unset Cover"

There was a logic error in MediaDeviceAlbum::image() method which was
the cause of bug 263268, this is fixed and cover setting functions are

The "Unset cover" MediaDeviceAlbum action never worked, so remove it
from GUI and remove related stub methods. I believe the functionality
is so little used on media devices so it is not worth implementing it
