I faced a problem with mp3 !!! That is:
   I double click the mp3 icon, and it will play the music automatically without any multimedia program activate, how can I stop the music/mp3 ?

Something must have loaded in order to the PC to be able to decode and play the MP3 file - you could try using a "ps fax" command from the shell to try and work out what - then kill it to stop the sound.

You could even write a script to do this when you click a particular icon (I'm not sure how though).

look at the properties of the icon you use to start the music, in the "execute" box you will see the name of the program... then open a xterm, and type the following command line:
"killall -9 <the_name_of_the_program>"
music must stop...
I recommend U to download the "XMMS" program in order to play your MP3 with more freedom...

is the kill signal to STOP the procedure...
it's like alt-f4 in windows....
or clicking at the "X" on the right-top corner of the window...
"killall" is the command to send a signal to ALL process with a specific name... instead of  "kill -signal PID", where PID is the number of the process running...
also try the online manual:
man kill
man killall
