playing mp3 in ubuntu


I have recently installed Ubuntu 7.04 and I don't have an internet connection at my place. I need to know that if there is a way to install ffmpeg and ugly plugings for gstreamer by downloading them separately. How should I select between the correct packages?

There are ways to download things via RPM and install them, but I'd save yourself some serious hassles, and just bring your computer to where there's a connection.

you can get some packages what you need in different computer which connect to network, after that you install packages on your computer by dpkg

But Ubuntu, like Debian, uses .deb packages and not .rpm.

So the way to go would be to download the appropriate .deb packages manually, transfer to the machine and double-click on them to start the installer. Or run
Code:
dpkg -i package.deb

Quite true, I stand corrected. Was clear on the concept, but unclear on the execution.

Given the amount of dependencies, etc., though, I think it would be much easier just to lug the system to a net connection....
