I am wanting to install win32codecs, files for MP3 etc. et al., with an 
initial view to being able to chose MP3 as my filetype in Gnome Sound 
Recorder.  So I found instructions on the net and tried to add the Medibuntu 
repositories to my sources list. 

I now have a Medibuntu entry in sources.list.d, but nothing in sources.list 
and Synaptic does not seem to be using it.

I am new to Ubuntu and Gnome, tho' not to Linux, and a recording and mixing 
n00b and ignoramus.

All advice in sorting this out gratefully received, and by all means ask me if 
I have plugged it in!!  Or tell me to RTFM. ;-(  But if you say the second, 
could you tell me where to find the FM??
