K3b: no mp3 support

Got this message when opening K3B:

Mp3 Audio Decoder plugin not found.
K3b could not load or find the Mp3 decoder plugin. This means that you
will not be able to create Audio CDs from Mp3 files. Many Linux
distributions do not include Mp3 support for legal reasons.
פתרון: To enable Mp3 support, please install the MAD Mp3 decoding
library as well as the K3b MAD Mp3 decoder plugin (the latter may
already be installed but not functional due to the missing libmad).
Some distributions allow installation of Mp3 support via an online
update tool (i.e. SuSE's YOU).

So, how do I fix this? I can play mp3 files with mplayer. Thanks.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
