Hello I have read FAQ and the reply here that solved the installation and use of MP3s in Fedora and tried both. I've listed below both my attempts.

  1. is what happened when I followed the faq instructions.
  2. Is the solved MP3 question here.

After running the following it seemed to install but when I tried to play an MP3 on rythmbox I got the error message.

"Rythmbox requires and additional plugin....
MPEG-1 Layer 3 (MP3) decoder"

It seems it has not worked.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I would use fedora for sure if it was easier or automatic to have the codecs installed for mp3. Ubuntu and Mint do this!
