Audacious not playing Ogg files?


Hey guys, I've recently installed Audacious and I can't seem to make it play ogg files. My OS is Debian Lenny 64-bit. Thank You guys, I'll see if I can get it to work or find any errors.

Do you have audacious-plugins and libogg0 installed?

Yes I do, and I reinstalled libogg0.

I have basically the same config minrich, I checked it and they were no different.

I ran audacious through root, and no errors came up when I tried to play an ogg file.

I'm sorry, I'm don't understand your last sentence, viz.:

"I ran audacious through root, and no errors came up when I tried to play an ogg file."

Does this mean you are running audacious as root? Because I don't have any audacious settings in my /root/.config directory.

Further, can you confirm that your normal sound system is working and that ALSA is set up correctly (don't ask me how - if you are using gnome, because I'm using KDE).

I found out the problem, it seems audacious can't read .oga files. I thought that was the file extension type, but .ogg are the correct ones that it plays. I ripped my cds through rhythmbox, is it ripping the wrong file type?
