    Missing Edit Profiles button in soundjuicer

    The searching I've done shows that soundjuicer should have a button to edit profiles and allow setting the quality of ogg encoding.

    I don't have that button in the version on my system. Is this a bug, or has the application changed?

    apt-cache policy sound-juicer
    sound-juicer:
    Installed: 3.4.0-3
    Candidate: 3.4.0-3
    Version table:
    *** 3.4.0-3 0
    500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal/universe amd64 Packages

    Gnome3 changed the way it handles audio profiles. See if this command helps:
    Code:
    gnome-audio-profiles-properties

    Though I don't think it will matter. It's likely S-J is locked into the Gnome default which is a now a crappy quality of 0.3 for vorbis

    I'd use any 3rd party ripper instead or even rhythmbox which can use custom quality settings thru presets (in 12.10, for 12.04 a little setup required for Custom in RB
    (the default preset for RB should be 'ubuntu-default' which has a q of 0.6 or you can set a Custom q
    See here for a short explain as there is a small no nothing bug

    Doug/mc4man, thanks for pointing that out. I just did a test and you're correct that sound-juicer won't even look at the media profiles anymore. I tried editing the CD, lossy profile to different quality settings and s-j still produced the same file.

    Oh well, you can always use s-j to rip to FLAC and then use the oggenc command to convert or you can use a non-gnome ripper that doesn't assume you're too dumb to be playing around with vorbis quality settings. Audex is my favorite in that regard, though if you don't want Qt/KDE stuff on your system, there are others (rubyripper, asunder, ripperx).
