Installing MP3 support for amaroK

Unfortunately amaroK doesn't come with MP3 support in Ubuntu. But that's easy to fix.

1. Check, if you have included the Universe sources in /etc/apt/sources.list

2. Type "sudo apt-get update" in the shell (or use the Update Button in Synaptic)

3. Type "sudo apt-get install libxine1-ffmpeg" (or select and install it in Synaptic)
This will install the needed libmad0 library as well.

4. Start amaroK and play your MP3 files :)

if this does not work in the first go then restart the computer and it should work.

If you have any better idea please do add it as a comment.

  1. Thanks for your info; this is exactly the problem I'd like to fix. Trouble is, I don't know how to do this on an Asus Eee PC.

    Best, Abel
