Album art on iPod via Amarok!

It took friggin’ forever, but Amarok is finally able to transfer album artwork to my beloved iPod Nano! Supposedly, album art support has been in Amarok for a while, but it didn’t work because Amarok couldn’t correctly set the iPod model string.

Well, fortunately, Amarok 1.4.6 has been released. And even more fortunately, it is already in the Ubuntu repositories, at least for Feisty Fawn. One:

aptitude install amarok

..and Amarok 1.4.6 was running on my system. Then, from the Devices tab, clicking iPod -> Update Artwork. A few seconds later, and Amarok said it was done. I said, “Yeah, right,” but disconnected the Nano and pulled it off the dock anyway. I figured, ah, why not give it a quick try. And Huzzah! Artwork! Albums and podcasts.

Huzzah!

New domain name – apt-get.us

I went a little nutso at GoDaddy today and registered a bunch of new domains. There’s one in particular that is related to this bog, a new shortcut to get here. You can now use http://apt-get.us to get here, instead of http://apt-get.biffster.org. Either way takes you to the same place, one’s just a little easier to type. :)
