> The most likely cause is that you don't have 32 bit libmgp123 installed and/or your Wine package was compiled without mp3 support. This will affect any apps (like Powerpoint) that rely on Windows Media Player codecs to play sound. Apps that install their own codecs, like Winamp or VLC, are not affected.
> Check that you have 32 bit libmpg123, and if you don't, install it. Also check that your Wine install includes winemp3.dll.so; if it doesn't, your Wine package lacks mp3 support. I've posted a workaround for that in the AppDB entry for Powerpoint 2003.
THANK YOU so very much!
The work around with the symbolic link did the trick.
Again, Thank you!
