    Hi all

    We've got a new user group for hardware forums over at last.fm which you can view here

    A bit about last.fm:

    Whoo! 4 members so far

    The idea of the HWF LastFM group is that we can see what the most listened to music is and share tastes etc.

    Linux users can use AmaroK (KDE) or Banshee (GNOME) with LastFM, which is easier then downloading LastFM's software

    Log out of root (you cant run graphical programs as root) and instead use sudo.

    BTW, why don't you just use AmaroK for Last.fm? In the settings you can set up last.fm support

    Yes, Amarok 1.4.1 and later all support Last.fm natively with no other software necessary.

    Hey just thought I'd pimp this thread as we need 7 more members before we get an official Hardware Forum's music chart! :D

    Our group is here

    Anti-Trend is the new group leader because I am too lazy to run it properly!

    I use Amarok for Last.FM but not regularly as the skip option does not work.....
    Apparently a known bug...fixed in 2.0.

    I prefer to to be able to skip here and there.....

    Now listening to AT's library..... :D :cool:

    The Last.fm player is great for discovering new acts. I generally type in a tag and let it play away. Anything I like I buy
