comment How do I import Amazon MP3s with Banshee and the new Amazon Cloud Player?
I find it hard to believe that the user agent switcher solution didn't work, what error/problem are you encountering? On the other hand, I would be very interested to hear more details about how you installed the Amazon MP3 downloader. Theoretically they have stopped supporting the downloader for Linux, so it shouldn't work at all, period. If you've managed to make it work though, I'd love to hear how...

Like I said, I used to do it this way, so I know it works, it just stopped working at some point. I wonder if our feedback actually caused them to revert to the old behavior... I will check this out next time I buy an album. Do you know if you can purchase from within Banshee and if the Banshee hook on that link will work?

Hi Carlos, thanks for your answer. Are you sure that this method still works (in the last couple months) with a Linux user agent? I ask because this is exactly how I used to download the music, but now I get a Linux not supported dialog both using this method and downloading from cloud player.

comment Why is the google PPA reenabled after an upgrade to a new release?
I just noticed that something went wrong with this process in the last month and the Google distro was unauthorized and for some reason hasn't reauthorized itself. I'm hoping manually reinstalling the package will reset things.

Good point, I had forgotten to mention that you can still download the files one by one. I usually buy music a couple albums at a time though, so downloading each song individually would take forever. In regards to your original commentary, I should point out that when I called them they were pretty responsive to my concerns and said they would pass them along to the developers and get back to me.

I got a preliminary email back from a customer service rep. saying that he would need 1-2 business days to look into the matter. Already a much better response than I've gotten from certain other companies, who see the word "linux" and take it as an excuse to stop providing customer service regardless of what the problem is.
