tried to rip an audio cd to mp3 file part2

Asked by Bubulle on 2009-01-02

I have the same problem as follow:
I'm fairly new to linux and I love it. So far I've had this problem when I try to rip an audio CD into a mp3 file with k3b, it tells me there's an error:
 command failed: lame -h --tt
 and after that the track information, and the only other thing it tells me is
 error while encoding track 1
Any idea what I'm doing wrong or not doing at all???
Thanx!

I did that as suggest:
Then open a Terminal from the menu Applications->Accessories->Terminal and type:
sudo apt-get update
 sudo apt-get install lame

But i still got the same error message. What should i do???

You can try to install libmp3lame0

I actually found a real simple mp3 ripper called ripoff. It drops the ripped mp3s in your home directory. It can do CDDB lookups as well.

Actually, you might need toolame for k3b instead of the other package I mentioned now that I think about it.

I've been using grip (apt-get install grip) for years, works great for me.

Thank's i will try another program. Where can i get the 'ripoff mp3 package' the version available trough adept does not support MP3. I will try grip before.

Just for you to know: it work once with k3b, i was able to rip 1 single track when i tried again for a CD or another track the error message reappear. I have reinstalled Kubuntu and did the procedure again but it didn't work?? Weird isn't it?

Thanks for the help i will keep you posted!

Thanks for the help, Grip work perfectly. I will use this program. I have the 3.3.1 version. Is there a newer version? Can you suggeste a program to manage the name of the album?

Best Andy Ruddock (andy-ruddock) said : #6

I know of no other version, it's always best to stick with software from the repositories unless you have some overriding requirement for newer software.
In what way do you need to manage the name of the album? It's configurable within grip.
When you load grip and insert the cd you get a track listing under the "Tracks" tab - if you then click on the "Disc editor" at the bottom (looks like a pencil) you can edit the artist and album details.
You can also select "multi-artist" for those compilation albums you may have.
If you're looking for something to edit the tags, you could try something like id3v2 or easytag.

With ripoff, you need this too: ripoff-mp3-plugin
So, sudo apt-get install ripoff ripoff-mp3-plugin should do it.
