In general yes, but not specifically to the new Ubuntu SDK. Thank you though Mr. Carvalho. – EzzatA Feb 20 '13 at 13:49

You could try installing the newest amarok version from their ppa:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install amarok

If you're lucky it will work and on top of that you have the new Amarok 2.7 which I think has some nice new features :-) You might have to do a sudo apt-get upgrade before trying to install Amarok.

If it doesn't work you can easily remove the ppa again:

sudo apt-add-repository --remove ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
sudo apt-get update
