Version: 2.4.3 (using KDE 4.7.3)
Steps to Reproduce:
I try to save my playlist on disk:
1. Click "Save current playlist" icon at the bottom of Amarok.
2. Hold it until the menu appers.
3. Click on 'Save playlist to "Playlist files on disk"'
Nothing happens. No playlists appear in Playlists->Saved Playlists, no files on disk, whatever
I expect a "Save file" dialog to appear, so that I can choose name and location where the playlist will be saved, and a new playlist appearing in "Playlist files on disk"
Indeed, this is a regression persisting in Amarok 2.5, it is no longer possible to save to disk.
I can't reproduce the problem on v2.5.0-105-g8d103cf. Assume closed.
Definitely reproducible here, latest git build.
Let's analyze this a bit.
1) If you save to disk, then restart. Does the playlist show up. Start with an empty saved playlist section to test.
2) is the folder $KDEHOME/share/apps/amarok/playlists/ writeable?
3) disk full?
I'm guessing the file actually gets saved if 2 and 3 are positive and that this is just a view bug.
Started working after upgrading to Amarok 2.5 and KDE 4.8.0, the playlist appears in $KDEHOME/share/apps/amarok/playlists/
It still doesn't work for me. Amarok 2.5, KDE 4.8.
2.) The folder has rwx rights for the owner and owner-group, r-x for misc.
3.) Plenty of disk space, around 80 gb.
Deleted all saved playlists (both database and disk) and the actual playlist. Restarted Amarok.
Added some songs to the playlist. Pressed long the button to save to disk. Multiple times. Nothing happens. The folder stays empty.
Press short to save playlist to database. Works as expected.
Right before sending my comment I played around further and once it was possible to save to disk, even multiple times. One amarok restart later it didn't work again. Tried several times, never happened again :(
How can I help to debug the problem?
Same for me, still reproducible, plenty of disk space, all permissions OK, doesn't show up on restart.

kdelibs and Qt version? Anything else special (like $KDEHOME)
My KDE files are stored at /home/daniel/.kde/, e.g. /home/daniel/.kde/share/apps/amarok. That should be the default path I think?

Saved to disk, updated collection, restarted Amarok, the playlist never shows in the saved on disk section.

Is the file present in $KDEHOME/share/apps/amarok/playlists? If there are some, clear them, start Amarok and check after saving.
That folder is empty and remains empty even after saving and restarting. Permissions are 700 by default, even changing to 777 doesn't change the problem.
Apparently Amarok doesn't write to that folder at all.
