Thank you. I took the time to install amarok-trinity.

What I feared happened: I spent several hours resolving conflicts with
debian-multimedia and wheezy packages. I had to downgrade and remove a
lot of things. But now, it works.

I'll have to install it from sources because there's too much
important packages I had to remove.
