Jukebox won't play files

I've just installed Suse 10.0 and most of it is ok, however when I set up a playlist (mp3) with Jukebox, it lists all the tracks but refuses to play them. No error messages, no troubleshooting tips. Is there a dependancy problem here or maybe problems with permissions - it's a nightmare.

Have you installed mp3 support? SuSE doesn't care for mp3s right out of the box. The guide at covers installing multimedia for SuSE pretty good, at least it has worked for me.

Many thanks for that reply - I will try it and see. It's a pity that Suse doesn't tell you things like this up front!

PS. Later update - it looks as if I needed kdemultimedia3-mad. Juk works fine now!
