Hi abourke, Welcome to LQ. I think you need the Multimedia codecs package.
Good luck. ;-)

Hi, thanks for your response Peacedog.

I turns out I needed to get the mad-plugin to work for mp3 support. Unfortunately I couldnt find an rpm anywhere. http://www.mail-archive.com/lxde-lis.../msg00555.html Apparantly its not allowed.
So, I went ahead and compiled xmm2 and libmad myself. And now its working.

Then I discovered Amarok supports command line arguments. Doh!
