Version: 2.4.3 (using KDE 4.7.3)
It UI there is a hint that says the "Moodbar generator" external package is needed for the feature to function. However it's non-obvious, that .mood files have to be generated manually. For a user it appears as he checks the setting and NOTHING HAPPENS. If moodbar cannot be set run automatically, it would be just better to put a notice in the setting menu.
Steps to Reproduce:
Enable Moodbar in the setting dialogue.
Nothing (even no error output) happens until I google, read documentation, download and run generator script.
Moodbars are shown.
OS: Linux (x86_64) release 3.0.0-14-generic
Thanks for reporting.
This seems more of a "wishlist" bug. Please tag accordingly.
Indeed, Amarok only displays the Moodbar, it doesn't generate it.

We are currently in string freeze, this will have to wait for a few weeks as 2.7 is around the corner.
Should I just add a line in UI saying " .mood file must be generated manually " and give the following link for further reference :
