I opened XMMS and tried to run a few mp3s. They didn't appear in the Playlist after I went add=> dir.
It seems XMMS needs a plugin to run mp3s. Is that true? Anyway I downloaded the rpm here
. However to install the package i go to System Settings => packages - it informs me I need root access. Since i am a user and do not have the root password this is as far as i can go.
Surely there is a way to add a plugin to allow me to listen to mp3s without being the root user?!
I installed linux shockwave with no problem. It installed through the Shell. Is there a similar way for rpms?
