Smile amarok won't play MP3!

HI!...All!...Have installed amaroK 1.3.8 on my SUSE 10 System BUT
so far have been unable to make amaroK play MP3 files(either with the GSTREAMER or XINE Engine)....After building collections and/or importing tracks I am getting following messages:'local file does not exist', 'gst-engine claims it cannot play MP3', and 'some media cannot be played/loaded'....Is there a simple way to solve this problem!...PS: I have no problems playing/opening MP3 files/tracks with REAL-PLAYER but REAL has limited features!.....THANK YOU!....

I have the answer!

Go here:

Then go to the question why it won't play mp3s and there'll be a link to follow. Then choose the version of Linux you have and it'll walk you through the process.
