Better if you put the error message you are getting when you run those 
applications from command line.

Yep... I've got "nvidia" driver installed.

sm01@stt008:~$ dpkg -S libGLcore.so.1
nvidia-glx: /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.173.14.09
nvidia-glx: /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1

Let me check:

sm01@stt008:~$ dpkg -l | grep nvidia
ii  nvidia-glx   173.14.09-5   NVIDIA binary Xorg driver
ii  nvidia-kernel-2.6.26-2-amd64  173.14.09+3+lenny1   NVIDIA binary kernel module for Linux 2.6.26
ii  nvidia-kernel-common    20080825+1  NVIDIA binary kernel module common files

But I have installed those just because my VGA card is nvidia-based.

Hmmm, I don't even have that package installed. It seems that library can 
come from different sources.

For what I see, "libgl1-nvidia-glx" depends on "libgl1-nvidia-
alternatives". Check if you already have it installed.

Well, before going further on this, I would first ask myself if I 
really need that library for running amarok or chronium. For me it looks 
like the error can come from another place >:-?
