Are you ready to amarok?
Sure but why can't I play mp3 files with amarok?

How to Play mp3 files with amarok in Ubuntu Linux 9.04


Amarok 2 in Ubuntu 9.04 doesn't come with mp3 support. In order to play mp3 files with Amarok in Ubuntu 9.04 we need to install the libxine1-ffmpeg package.

Like any other package in Ubuntu, we can install it using synaptic or using the apt command.

Installing amarok mp3 support using Synaptic package manager


  1. Open Synaptic package manager (System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager)
  2. Insert libxine1-ffmpeg in the Quick Search box and press Search.
  3. Press the check box near the libxine1-ffmpeg package and select "Mark for Installation". If you get a message about required additional packages press the mark button.
  4. Press the applay button and follow the rest of the installation steps

Installing amarok mp3 support using apt

Installing mp3 support using the apt-get command is much simpler. All we need to do is open a console window and run the following command:
sudo apt-get install libxine1-ffmpeg


That's it, we are done. All you need to do now is to open Amarok and play the music
