Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: amarok

In Ubuntu 10.04 (and other versions) Amarok places an icon on the top
task bar on the left hand side after it is installed. When you click on
it creates another icon on the right hand side. This occures once Amarok
is up and running! Normally if you click on the icon Amarok will ether
minimize or maximize. If you hover the mouse pointer over it, it should
show the artwork and the song that is playing.

My problem is that it is not doing any of this for me! If I click on it
all I see is the drop down and on it I see "Amarok" (Always greyed out)
on top, below that, "Previous Track" below that, "Play/Pause" below
that, "Stop" below that,"Next Track" below that, "Add Position Marker"
below that, "Restore" and last, below that, "Quit"

The application broke after a 10.04 update at some point or another, I
think! I also forgot to add that I did use synaptic to do a complete
removal and then reinstalled it but that also did not help!

I have spoken to the KDE guys and they tell me it is not an issue on
their side that my OS is responsible for the error.

The Amarok package is: 0ubuntu4
