Hmm... what's the path to your local kde directory?
On my distro it is .kde4, perhaps this path is a different one for you?

Ok... it might be because your Amarok 2 version is too old.
I know it might sound strange, but support for fetching the current track art was implemented very recently.

I've got a plasmoid that I wrote for Amarok 2, and this is how I display the cover art. My plasmoid is always displaying a no cover blank cd, and if the album you're listening to has album art it displays on top of that, hiding it. If you're listening to last.fm, it displays a generic last.fm cover. It also doesn't depend on any absolute paths since it gets all paths directly from Amarok. Hope this helps.
