system settings->multimedia->phonon->backend is... what?

If it isn't GStreamer, those packages will do nothing...

This happens to me every time I install or upgrade my Slackware. I always keep forgetting to write down what I have to do to be able to listen to mp3's (I use audacious but I believe it also makes amarok work).

Make sure mpg123 (or is it mpg321?) is installed...or just install both - won't hurt anything as both small packages, heh.

Try that and see if it helps.

What does that mean: does it start and you are able to select a ogg audio file but there is no sound? or amarok won't start at all?

ogg should work out of the box with a default Slackware installation. So it's possible that you have an issue with your sound hardware

Do you have any error/warning message relating to sound card configuration when KDE starts (it could happen if you have more than one sound card)?

These are the gst packages I have and play mp3 without issues in amarok... Maybe it will help.

I thought it was bad or ugly that had the mp3 codec:

gst-ffmpeg-0.10.13-x86_64-2_SBo
gst-plugins-bad-0.10.23-x86_64-3_SBo
gst-plugins-base-0.10.36-x86_64-2
gst-plugins-base-compat32-0.10.36-x86_64-2compat32
gst-plugins-good-0.10.31-x86_64-5
gst-plugins-good-compat32-0.10.31-x86_64-5compat32
gst-plugins-ugly-0.10.19-x86_64-2_SBo
gstreamer-0.10.36-x86_64-2
gstreamer-compat32-0.10.36-x86_64-2compat32
phonon-gstreamer-4.6.3-x86_64-1

green_vein,

I have mpg123.


gegechris99,

Amarok starts but can't play audio files.
I also have audacious and vlc, both play audio files.
Obviously, I have sound in my system.
I do not receive any sound message error.


WhiteWolf1776,

I have all these packages except the "compat32".
My system isn't multilib.

Thak you all.

Never had any luck with Amarok, either. It's always audacious for me.

Maybe you could check if a working audio device is selected in the phonon configuration.

System Settings -> Multimedia ->Audio and Video Settings. Go to tab "Device Preference" and select "Audio Playback->music". On the right side, test each audio device that appears and if one is working move it on top of the list.

I am also having problems with "amarok" not playing mp3-files. After compiling and installing the package above and installing "lame" I got "XMMS" to play mp3s. Playing ogg-files in "amarok" works fine for me though but playing mp3s in "amarok" doesn't. (Slackware 14.1 - 32-Bit)

One further problem that I have is that I can't play radio-streams in XMMS. I would like to listen to this radio station: http://www.slayradio.org

@Mankind75

Just to make sure: did you install the 32-bit edition and not the x86_64 one?

The safest way to build the package (it will automatically detect your Slackware architecture) is to use a Slackbuild script.

Here's the link for gst-plugins-ugly

I am using the 32-bit version of 14.1. I came across the slack-build script but then eventually decided to build it from source. I used the same version numbers as the newest version wouldn't compile.

I tried again tuning into the stream with KPlayer. This one works fine.
