I am not sure if Rhythmbox is using gstreamer0.8 or already 0.10.
If 0.8 it will play mp3 with gstreamer-mad. After installing that run
gst-register-0.8 in console as normal user.

If 0.10 i thimk you need gstreamer-0.10-fluendo-mp3. The gst command is
not necassary voor v0.10.

I no go, give quod-libet a try.
