This may be a silly question, but did you check the package manage to see if any additional components need to be installed? I didn't realize you needed to install other components to get Rhythmbox to play mp3 in Ubuntu. USed the Synaptics package Manager, selected the needed packages, and now I have sound.

...hi RealGomer...and...thanks. You've set me thinking here. It seems like one of three (now two, before I read your answer I saw only two) options:
- a security problem - JRE is not allowed to play sound because of the sandbox thing
- something was not (properly) installed.
- annother program/module hogs the soundcard...

For the JRE to work as needed, I guess more must be done than unpack the thing somewhere centrally and make symlinks...



java, jre, sound
