Description Shamajotsi 2011-11-05 14:35:22 UTC
Version:           2.4.3 (using KDE 4.7.2) 
OS:                Linux

As strange as it may sound, since I installed Kubuntu 11.10 on my computer and moved all my music to my new Home folder, with Amarok I can only scrobble and like the music that I already have. When I listen to music that I have added to my collection since then, my scrobbling history does not change and the list of liked songs does not change either.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
I haven't done anything specific that may have caused this. All I did was just to freshly install Kubuntu 11.10, which comes with Amarok, update it when it says that I should, and edit the settings for the Last.fm plug-in.

Expected Results:  
I expected to be able to scrobble and like songs that are recently added to my collection with Amarok.

OS: Linux (i686) release 3.0.0-12-generic
Compiler: gcc

Hi there, 
Can you please elaborate by the term "like the songs", perhaps what you meant was to rate them starwise?

To "Like" a track is to click on the heart button, this is independent from rating and an option of last.fm. You need to check if a track you liked shows up in your list on last.fm

Thanks, for the info. I was unaware about the "like" functionality. I shall test it accordingly.

StatSyncing: ChangeLog and BUG: tags for the final merge

This is a cummulative ChangeLog for my GSoC 2012 project, statistics

Individual commits responsible for the changes are earlier, but under
the same git merge.

  * Track dragging support in Unique Tracks tab of the Synchronize Statistics action;
    allows you to do a "diff" between collections and transfer missing tracks.
  * Amarok now scrobbles tracks in streams if the stream correctly updates
  * When scrobbling to Last.fm, Amarok announces suggested tag corrections.
  * Ability to scrobble recently played tracks from iPod (and the like) to Last.fm.
  * Synchronization of labels and rating between Last.fm and Amarok collections;
    play count can be synchronized one-way from Last.fm to Amarok.
  * Statistics synchronization between collections, supports rating, first / last
    played time, play count and labels.

  * Configure Amarok dialog gets new Metadata tab to grab some weight from the
    Collection tab and to configure statistics synchronization.

  * Better Last.fm scrobbling behaviour and error reporting due to rewrite,
    should fix long-standing problems.
  * Update stream meta-data correctly even with phonon-gstreamer back-end.
