    MP3 tag editing


    Since I upgraded to openSUSE 10.3, or maybe at an earlier reformat, I don't seem to have the abilty to edit tags. Before I could right-click in Konqueror on an MP3, open properties and the tags would show in editable format.
    I don't recall installing anything special to do this - it just seemed to be there. Well now it's not.
    Anybody know what I'm missing?

    I like the Amarok inline editing the best. Mostly because you can do multiple entries at once in the playlist, edit entire playlists or just edit individually.

    Amarok is awesome. I have a huge library so I that multi-tag editing as well as the automatic organization comes in real handy. Not to mention the nice GUI.

    I like it too. It is just so damn slow on my old lad (as many KDE programs).

    Thanks for your responses. I've looked at Amarok and I've got Kid3 (similar to EasyTag, I assume). I miss that ability to do it with the context menu in Konqueror, though.
    I'm sure I had it by default before and just can't find it now.

    I'd prefer to use eyed3 forediting the mp3 tags.
