[SOLVED] help with installing GStreamer
Im quite new using Linux. Now, i would like to know the version about the GStreamer that is currently installed. The rhythmbox is 0.11.*, and i would like it to be able to play .midi and .mp3 files. I downloaded the lastest GStreamer*version*.tar.gz from gstreamer.freedesktop.org, but now i need to install it. And i don't know in which directory i should do that. if you can help.

youi can install gstreamer and many plugins via apt the debian package management system.
use aptitude to search and install packages
aptitude search gstreamer
aptitude install "packages comes here separated with space"
aptitude show specific-package-name
the last command will give you detailed information about a package
But , if you want install gstreamer from source , unpack it
tar xfz gstreamer*.tar.gz
True, i never think about the readme / install files.
Next time, i'm gonna try not to forget it.
Thanks again, iwanbeguru

Hi, markharding557 (pretty long name to type...anyway).
Thanks for answering me, but i already solved that 'problem'.
The problem wan't really the GStreamer itself, it was the Mp3 plugin. It wan't installed. I downloaded one and installed it manully. Currently, i'm listening some music while typing those sentences.
