I uninstalled the 10.19 one and still mp3 playback doesn't work. When 
trying to remove the 10.20 one and keep 10.19, I was warned by my 
package manager that the action would downgrade a lot of gstreamer 
packages. I guess I'll have to try that anyway right?

I installed it and I cannot run it. Output error in the console is:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<string>", line 25, in <module>
   File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/libchristine/Christine.py",
