What makes that obvious to the user that they need to do this to add mp3 support? Especially since the case seems to be that we're not allowed to actually say that.
nothing is ever obvious in life. For a new user, all is obscure, for an oldtimer nothing.
Uh huh. Thanks for your input. It's illuminating.
Lol.... I remember the first time i encoutered 'the' problem..., it was 10.0 or so (?), anyway, after 9.3, many things changed, and some not for the good..., i just thought the players were broken... after looking around, and asking some questions in the lists, i found out what was the cause of the problem... Ofcourse i tried to 'discuss' this and solve it, as so many others did.
No movies and music just sucks!
It is just a way to make linux seem 'a bad os', for those who do not look beyond this..
In 11.2 however, i think it was 11.2, my player asked me if i wanted to install the missing stuff, and took me directly to the 'one click install', which are a lot more clicks, but afterwards it just worked, without me having to find all the missing pkgs by myself and install them, which was very comfortable.. :-)
In 11.3, it was gone allready, and more steps had to be taken to achieve our goal... helas..
What i fail to understand is: What was wrong with that approach?
It was not in the distro at install time, and it was not pulled out of the official repos... What can possibly be wrong at that approach, i just fail to see it. Maybe anyone that knows could explain it to me, please?
