I tried everything mentioned in there, but to no avail. :-(
Thank you for your help though, and I'll be very grateful for any other
useful information that you or anyone might possess. One of the biggest
reasons I moved my collection onto the server was to be able to more
easily reach it throughout the network, and Amarok being my favourite
player, I of course want to be able to use it.
