In Debian (and derived distros, e.g. Ubuntu), libavahi-qt3.so.0 would be in a
package called libavahi-qt3-0. You need to either install libavahi-qt3-0
(which would be part of an older version of Avahi - you should be able
to have both the -0 and -1 versions installed at the same time), or recompile
amarok against the newer version of avahi you now have.

If you installed Amarok from a Debian package, this is a bug in that
package - it should have a dependency on libavahi-qt3-0, so please report
this to whoever supplied you with that package.

If you installed Amarok from source yourself, just recompile it - now that
you have the newer libavahi-qt3-dev installed, this should produce a binary
which links against .so.1 instead.

Hope this helps,
