Description Dotan Cohen 2012-10-21 17:11:42 UTC
When updating my music collection, I got the following error:
"The collection scanner reported the following errors:
When commiting track /home/music/ללא שפה/Camille_Saint-Saëns_-_The_Carnival_of_the_Animals.ogg with uid amarok-sqltrackuid://ae4fd10635a1059004c286e93596b0e7 we detected that the same uid is already commited. This means that you most probably have duplicates in your collection folders. The offending track is /home/music/כניסה/Saint-Saens_Carnival.ogg.
In most cases this means that not all of your tracks were imported.
Further errors will only be reported on the console."

I suggest rewording this:
"Possible duplicates found:
/home/music/ללא שפה/Camille_Saint-Saëns_-_The_Carnival_of_the_Animals.ogg

ScanManager: better dialog on collection scanner errors

We now link to http://userbase.kde.org/Amarok/Manual/Various/TroubleshootingAndCommonProblems#Duplicate_Tracks
and format the message much more nicely.
