    [SOLVED] Re: *.* In Ubuntu

    ls -aR *

    Will list everything (and I mean everything) under the current directory.

    ls -aR /*

    Looks like a problem with lame.
    Asunder uses this as it's mp3 backend.
    See if you have lame installed NB NOT the gstreamer plugin thing


    aptitude show lame

    If it's not installed install it

    I gave up reading when I came to this bit ...
