Why not just use Banshee (if in Gnome) or Amarok (if in KDE) to play your MP3 files? And really if you load both desktops (gnome and kde), you can play either application in either desktop. Did you know that not every program works in every desktop configuration and when you already have more than one option for playing MP3 files, I would stick with the ones that are known to work better. I don’t really know anyone that recommends Totem for playing MP3 files as a general rule. This is just my opinion of course and others may disagree.
Thanks for the reply,i used to use totem to play mp3 on opensuse 11.0/gnome version of totem,but the latest totem version is crashing,and i am now using banshee and gnome mplayer to play mp3,it is just that i like totem’s interface
Any help to fix the crashes would be much appreciated
Installing the codecs did not help,guess there is no codec problem,the software itself may be buggy
I tried preferences for one last time while making this post and turned off the “GOOM” Visual effect and viola it works now,no more crashes,I should have guessed this sooner.The player crashed only while playing audio files and not while playing video files like avi.
Can we safely delete all the hidden files under our /home/<UserName> folder whose name starts with a dot or “.” without causing any complications other than losing application related setting.
Is there any chance that these files will contain any library files ?
The only real hidden user data files are te .evolution and .mozilla folders. You can safely delete all the .g* files and folders relating to gnome without a problem. All that happens is that the next time you login a new set of default files is loaded.
