Hi
For Rhythmbox to play mp3 files it needs a codec to be installed using Synaptic Package Manager.
The one to install is:-
gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3

What I always forget is that Karmic always is initialized with the volume control set to zero. I've been chagrined with that several times already.:P

Do not use the Fluendo codec. Use the unrestricted MP3 Lame. Fluendo is a Linux sell out company who has signed proprietary agreements with the companies who do not want us to have the "Right to Free Use" guaranteed until recent years under most countries' laws.

Fluendo's goal is to have everyone of us need to purchase our codecs from them and only them if running Linux. Keep Open Source as the dominant supplier of codecs to Linux and keep the man out of our operating system.
