Could you please test with Amarok 2.4.1? Could you also please run Amarok from a command line with -d --nofork as options and give us the part when you try to check for covers?

This is the output:
marok: BEGIN: virtual void Playlist::PrettyListView::contextMenuEvent(QContextMenuEvent*) 
amarok:   BEGIN: void Playlist::ViewCommon::trackMenu(QWidget*, const QModelIndex*, const QPoint&) 
amarok:     [CoverFetcher] "Adding interactive cover fetch for: 'Scantraxx Radioshow 8 Sampler WEB' from Google" 
amarok:     BEGIN: CoverFoundDialog::CoverFoundDialog(KSharedPtr<CoverFetchUnit>, const CoverFetch::Metadata&, QWidget*) 
amarok:     END__: CoverFoundDialog::CoverFoundDialog(KSharedPtr<CoverFetchUnit>, const CoverFetch::Metadata&, QWidget*) [Took: 0.013s] 
amarok:     [CoverFetcher] "Queueing cover fetch query: 'Scantraxx Radioshow 8 Sampler WEB' (page 0)" 
amarok:   END__: void Playlist::ViewCommon::trackMenu(QWidget*, const QModelIndex*, const QPoint&) [Took: 1.4s] 
amarok: END__: virtual void Playlist::PrettyListView::contextMenuEvent(QContextMenuEvent*) [Took: 1.4s]

I can't try Amarok 2.4.1 because I can't find any repository for Ubuntu 10.10 with Amarok 2.4.1

The problem with Google was fixed in ebe78a46acc6ae42e1472b0d7f837eacb29b5bd3 (not tagged yet), also reported in Bug 274569. Though it seems just today some futher changes on Google's side broke the search again. I've another patch for it and I'll push it in a few days hopefully.

I have not experienced any problems with the Yahoo fetcher though, ever since it was added. Also I can't recall any code changes to it since then either. Sometimes it may be some characters that should be encoded into the url but somehow isn't. Can you try with just searching with some simple texts and see if that works?
Comment 4 Emanuele Cisotti 2011-06-09 14:38:07 UTC
I never used Yahoo before today, so I think it was broken. I tried with simple words and it worked.
Will it be any way to patch the Google search or I have to wait to upgrade di Ubuntu 11.04 and install Amarok 2.4.2
