ffmpeg and if you need a graphical version, WinFF.

I agree with the recommendation for Sound Converter. It's super easy to use and converts basically anything to anything.

be sure to get soundconverter and not soundkonverter. soundkonverter is unable to convert to mp3

Thank you sooo much! Sound converter works perfectly and it is extremely simple.

Excuse me if I`m wrong about this, but I take it you want to convert flac to mp3 so that you can put the song(s) on an mp3 player.

If you load your mp3player with banshee, it will convert it for you.

This saves you having 2 copies of your music library. Actually I mean 3 copies because you have a backup.

@nothingspecial

Is it me or ubuntuforums are having problem? It seems last new thread was created 8 hours ago in absolute beginner section and my user Control panel is not updating Subscriptions. Are you having the same problems mate? Thanks

Indeed, it seems only existing thread may be responded to.. and new posts aren't visible, even though they do exist, I guess.
Pretty strange.

And the quote button doesn't work either.

Maybe they created a new thread to announce it, and it isn't showing up.

yeh same is happening to me. Forums gone bonkers...

I posted a new thread in Forums & help section, it is not visible either.

Only thing seems to be working is reply to already created threads.

You guys should not even be online, according to the frontpage there is only one active member and that member is me. :confused:

Another thread we've hijacked (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1350934).

Yeh! This was gnome screensaver deb package with malicous bash script.I have seen that script someowhere on forums - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1349678. Someone had screensaver installed with this invisible bash script running which deleted .gnome from user space and changed permissions to 777 for user shell and bashrc to ping own server and run bots to spread spams or some sort.

gnome-look has removed it now! Nothing is trusted outside repos

This has nothing to do with forums behaving abnormally though.

Thats interesting, since I have converted flac-> mp3 with soundkonverter.
