Slackware 13.37 + XFCE : handle audio formats with Brasero ?


I'm running Slackware and Slackware64 13.37, with the XFCE desktop, enhanced with some stuff from On the multimedia side, I have MPlayer, ffmpeg and transcode without any restrictions. They work well and digest about any format I throw at them.

I just built Brasero, and it won't decode any of my audio, which is mostly MP3, but also the odd OGG, MPC, WMA, WAV or FLAC.

I vaguely sense some library is missing here, and I suspect something like gstreamer-plugins-{good,bad,ugly,whatever}. Now before I start building some stuff haphazardly, I thought I'd rather ask the more informed among you. Any suggestion what I need to have a fully working Brasero with Slackware?

Aside: when using Brasero on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, it's what one gets when installing the ubuntu-restricted-extras metapackage from the restricted repos.

Any suggestions?
