Default Hit a snag: Amarok, Rockbox and Album Art

Hey Folks,

Not sure if this should be posted here or in the Linux/Mac forum, but here goes:

I'm in the process of getting my Rockboxed Sansa E250 (running Kugel's build) to play nice with Amarok running in Ubuntu Hardy Heron. I have run into a snag in trying to get Amarok to transfer album art to the player, or more specifically, to my 4GB MicroSD card in a card reader.

As it stands at the moment, Amarok sees the player's file system just fine, and it also treats the MicroSD card as a generic player (due to the file ".is_media_player" on the card). I have all of my album art converted to 100x100 bmp, stored in each individual album file (on the PC), named cover.bmp. In a test case, I have also set the cover.bmp as a custom album art in Amarok's cover manager.

I can use Amarok's drag and drop interface from playlist to device to move music with no problems, but I can't for the life of me get it to move the album art with the songs. I've done a bit of searching here, on the Ubuntu forums, and on Google, but haven't been able to find any info that appears to resolve my issue.

Anyone know if this is possible? Am I going to be stuck manually copying all of my album art to the player? I'm guessing there's probably a way to do a batch copy from the command line in linux, but at this point my linux script skills aren't up to the task.
