    Did you try with xmms?
    Code:
    apt-get install xmms
    If you did, run xmms from console and see what's the output you get trying to play the mp3 file

    With
    Code:
    apt-get install amarok-xine
    And related plugins:
    Code:
    apt-get install \
    faad libfaad2-0 libfaad2-dev libmp4-0 libmp4-dev \
    faac libfaac-dev libfaac0 \
    xmms xmms-mp4 xmms-cdread xmms-skins \
    toolame \
    lame lame-extras \
    w32codecs \
    given that you have:
    Code:
    deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ sarge main
    (for sarge) in your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

    Of course the faad (for decoding) and faac (for encoding) ones are AAC files related (mp4).
