It took ages and effort to get Kdenlive work in the first place. Now having paused for ~4 weeks and wanting to continue I am stuck agin ... trying to Add Clip gives the error message "FAILED TO CREATE PROXY CLIP":

Unknown encoder 'libmp3lame'
In the log we see that ffmpeg is rather recent (6 Nov 2012) and the problem is perhaps related to a Package Manager software update? At the end it says "unknown decode libmp3lame" therefore perhaps this issue can get fixed by just finding libmp3lame package and installing it - but before I mess things up even more, does anybody know what happened and any advise about fixing this issue?
Thank you very much in advance...
