Ok… i know you guys probably ALWAYS get this question… but no matter what i look at whether it be a Thread or another website… for the life of me i can’t figure out how to get MP3’s to play on my Linux… if i can’t get it to play. how do i convert the files to a format that i can use… i am desperate… cause so far that is the only thing that i am having problems figuring out… HELP if one can help… i am a noob… i know it…

click the section you need kde/gnome under mutlimedia
1-click-collection - openSUSE-Community


Restricted Formats/11.0 - openSUSE-Community

ok… so it ran… installed everything… but yet it doesn’t work… right… so what is wrong with my system if it doesnt work?

Have a read here
NEWBIES - Suse-11.0 Pre-installation – PLEASE READ - openSUSE Forums

Packman repo is your friend

another question… how can one convert MP3.s to a file that linux can use?

there is no problem with using mp3

that may be… but i still enjoy knowing how to do things… if that makes since… its the way i learn how to use the software…

btw… thanx man… for the help…

If you want to play with converting there is a very useful application (service menu) for KDE users audiokonverter If you are using Gnome, then take a look to GTK+ Applications Repository -, and search for something similar.

jRipper from packman repo, I think does the converting you require too.

ok… this may sound like a stupid question… but how do you use those programs

i mean how do you open it and use it or is all done threw commands?

Install the application
eg: jripper
it’s in Packman repo

Start the program from the Start Menu - Multimedia - Media Editing - jRipper
(that’s from kde anyway - not sure about gnome)
