I'm trying to install K3B. The install looks okay except that when I run it, I 
get the following an error message that states:

> Mp3 Audio Decoder plugin not found.
> K3b could not load or find the Mp3 decoder plugin. This means that you will

I have installed eveything with even a vague reference to MAD but no change. I 
can't find the "MAD Mp3 decoding library" nor the "K3b MAD Mp3 decoder 
plugin". Can anybody tell me how to find these things?
