to add the plugin (to play mp3's) get this file


untar/unzip it by typing this


tar zxvf xmms-mp3-fc1.tar.gz


Once uncompressed, copy these two lib files (as root) to this folder:




Restart your XMMS and enjoy mp3!





thanks, very useful :)

After I do these steps, the mp3 files play only in super user mode :( When I try to play them in normal mode, the seek bar moves 10x faster than it normally does and no sound :(


Any ideas?
