[SOLVED] Install libqt4-phonon without removing anything?

Postby Deleted User 2764 » 15 Nov 2014 23:23

I wanted to install libqt4-phonon to see if that will get amarok and dolphin to finally play audio files. I can't though because it wants to uninstall practically the whole distribution or at least uninstall all of KDE! Why is that? And is there a way to get around it so I can safely install (and if it isn't the solution, safely uninstall) libqt4-phonon?

Found out I don't really need this as I got amarok working. But, just for discussion, can anyone come up with a way to install this (in case someone does want to install it) without losing half of KDE in the process?

is its rich set of widgets that provide standard GUI functionality.
The Qt Phonon module provides a cross-platform multimedia framework that
enables the use of audio and video content in Qt applications.

is built from the phonon source package. Therefore it's only useful when
bootstraping new architectures or rebuilding the whole archive from scratch.

I was hoping you'd reply with some useful info and you did! 8-)

Confirmed. libphonon4 is in fact installed by default.

Thanks for all the info!
