As a corollary, make sure you can actually use the functions from
libmtp. If the command-line functions won't connect to your device,
Amarok won't be able to. Usually this is a problem with udev
permissions -- make sure you get the rules from libmtp and pop it into
/etc/udev.d or wherever is appropriate.
