Could not rip Cd to MP3

Asked by Froy on 2007-10-16

When I try to rip my CD's to MP3 format with KaudioCreator it would give error message and would not rip the songs. It would do it Wav though.

If you could provide the error message it would probably help.
My guess would be that you don't have the mp3-libs installed and that's why you can't rip to mp3. Like you say, it seems to work to convert to wav.

I'd also recommend opening "konqueror" and in the location-bar type "audiocd:/" (without quotes obviously).

When I installed kdemultimedia using synaptics package manager here is list of files that it installed:
juk
kaudiocreator
kdemultimedia
kdemultimedia-kappfinder-data
kdemultimedia-kfile-plugins
libarts1-mpeglib
mpeglip

I did some more research and found that in the configuration window where you choose the type of encoding, for mp3, the command starts with:
"lame --preset standard --tt%{title} --ta%{artist}"... and so on which I think that's how lame should format the file names.
But according to synaptics package manager "lame" is not a mp3 encoder and it is not even installed in my computer (per synaptics).
If i choose "wav" the command configurarion starts with "wav" followed by the same formatting "wav--%{title}..." and so on.

So I wonder what library should I install.

Thanks,

Please disregard the question about kdemultimedia. I was not able to find the libraries needed for it, but was able to configure "Sound juice extractor" to rip CD's to mp3 format. I found an old link in the Ubuntu site. It told me exactly what library was needed for Sound juicer. I installed the gstream0 lib and when I started Sound juicer extractor it has the choice to rip to mp3.

Thanks,
