    XMMS not working


    Hello,

    XMMS crashes whenever I try to play an mp3 - or anything for that matter. I have the libmpg123.so plugin enabled, but I guess that wouldn't explain why it can't play wav files either (I also have libwav.so.)

    What happens is I will load xmms from a terminal. I get the

    Code:
    xmms
    libmikmod.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    error, which I am told is not important.

    I load an mp3 file (that I am sure is not corrupted, etc.) and when I press play it freezes, sometimes freezing my entire system and requiring a hard reboot.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for all the help!

    And how did you install the mp3 plugin?

    Sorry, should have included more...

    I am using Ubuntu, and the plugin was obtained via synaptic.

    The sound does work (not in XMMS of course, but system sounds do.)

    I also tried re-installing XMMS with synaptic, and nothing changed.
