View Full Version : [ubuntu] No mp3 in Sound Juicer

June 29th, 2009, 12:31 PM
I'm new to Ubuntu. :KSI want to rip music with Sound Juicer to mp3 format. The documentation says that mp3's are usually available, but it is not on my laptop. What do I need to do / get / install to let me rip to mp3? Thanks!

Probably just install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Having the same problem as the OP and several others posted in earlier messages. Running Hardy 8.04. Tried to install grip per a Ubuntu How-To and got a Beta version!! LTS indeed.

Attempt to install ubuntu-restricted-extras yields package not found both with Synaptic Package Manager and with apt-get install.

Sound Juicer shows mp3 as an active profile in the Edit Profile window but does not allow the selection of mp3 as an output format.

What was borked was the /etc/apt/sources.list file. Long story not worth relating here. Got a correct sources.list, upgraded and installed all the listed packages and voila! MP3 now in output list. What does it sound like? Next posting...

Sorry for the waste of bandwidth
