Ubuntu comes with a couple of programs which can play mp3 files (on the Applications->sound menu)

Are you getting error messages? If so, what are they?

It is adviced to use a descriptive topic title, that means a topic title that gives some clue about the content in the thread itself...

A generic topic title like "noob here" or "need help" does not help at all. As you may have noticed, just about everyone posting in here has some kind of a problem or issue or question ;)

And it is also adviced to use seperate threads for unrelated problems so that you can mark each one individually as solved.

After installing that, mp3 files should play. VLC is another good alternative which can play almost any (if not all) media formats.


sudo apt-get install vlc
