Yes, I have checked.

Thanks, I'll try that. I normally avoid irc channels because I am a _very_
slow and typist. But I think that I will get some sleep first in the hope
that my brain may start working again. I'm a lark, not an owl.

Yes, I came to that conclusion when I saw what it wanted to drag in. I have
installed Kaffeine for now, but it isn't really ideal as a music player. I
had uninstalled Amarok, but I'll install it again in the morning and get onto
the irc channel. As I say, I am a long-time Amarok fan and would be sorry to
have to wave it goodbye for myself when Lenny bites the dust.

A lucky escape then!!

By temperament, far from giving up I am usually positively pig-headed when I
start something. But this is for someone else, and I have a time limit. And
I was feeling badly out of my depth! But if you are sure that it is soluble,
I would certainly like to try to solve it - tho' I shall leave Kaffeine alone
just for now.
Thanks for your persistence.
