I use Amarok also. Yes, I can play the m4a (for those that don't know -
m4a are the file you you add to iTunes via some other process - IE: rip
from CD. Whereas the m4p are the AAC files you purchase from iTunes).

No - I did not install Automatix(x) - I was advised to from someone at
work, but after reading the threads here - chose not to.

Ok, so now its now a matter of being able to play those dang encoded
iTunes files - anyone?
