k3b mp3

trying to setup k3b it says it it needs mad mp3 decoder and mp3 mad files but when i go into yast and software manager and packages i cant find them. where else can i find them? i hate being a pest with this new os but but i need to learn the hard way. thanks for any help.

You should be using k3b from Packman with k3b-codecs

What repos do you have?

zypper lr -d

And do tell which openSUSE level and which desktop (KDE, Gnome, other). We are not clairvoyant.

You need the Packman repo added, install k3b-codecs from there. That will do.

sorry, i am running opensuse 11.2, KDE, and have packman along with the other commmon repos., and running on a HP 64bit 320gig hd, 4 gig ram 3800 intel cpu. ill look in paackman again and see if i can find the mp3 codecs. thanks for the help. this newbies just learning.

Hi all,

That was great information, I was suffering from that message ‘mad mp3 etc…’.

Uninstalled k3b & re-installed via Packman & no more messages :slight_smile:

Many thanks!
