One does not scrobble on Libre.FM, but gobbles instead.
It would have all been nice if there wouldn't have been so many issues with clients with poor or no support at all. I discontinued using my Libre.FM account when I switched to Amarok2, which offered no support for Libre.FM. Not any more! It is now possible to submit the metadata in your tracks to your Libre.FM account, even from Amarok2.
Here's a step-by-step guide.
1. Go to Libre.FM and create an account.
2. Configure Amarok: Go to Settings -> Configure Amarok... -> Internet Services -> tick the "Last.fm" check box and click the settings icon next to it. Enter here your Libre.FM username and your Libre.FM password and untick the "Submit tracks" and "Retrieve similar artists" check boxes, then click "OK".
3. Install lastfmsubmitd. If you are using (K)Ubuntu, use this command in a terminal:
sudo aptitude install lastfmsubmitdWhen asked, enter audio as the group.
4. Edit /etc/lastfmsubmitd.conf and add the following:
[server]5. Make these directories accessible:
sudo chmod -R 777 /var/spool/lastfm6. Download the Amarok2LibreFM script for Amarok2 (no need to unpack it, just leave it as it is).
sudo chmod -R 777 /var/log/lastfm
7. Configure Amarok to use this script: Tools -> Script Manager -> Install Script, then choose the Amarok2LibreFM.amarokscript.tar.gz that you just downloaded.
8. Restart Amarok and you should be able to scrobble/gobble the tracks that you listen to.
Don't know about you, but I'm very glad that Libre.FM is "usable" again.
