Yesterday I did a fresh install of Ubuntu’s newest release, Edgy Eft on my desktop. Getting a fresh install back to the way I like it generally a long process of remembering what I actually had installed. Firing up my music player of choice, Amarok, made things a bit easier though.
I tried to play one of the songs in a playlist, only to have Amarok tell me I didn’t have the codec to play .mp3s. However, what was nice to see was an option to install it.
Much to my delight, Synaptic opened up, and proceeded to install the two packages I needed to listen to my music.
