    Locating libmp3lame.so for Audacity

    I'm trying to export a sound clip as mp3 so I can use it as a ringtone on my phone, but I can't locate the "libmp3lame.so" to do this. I've compiled and installed the lame-3.97 package, and I was just wondering where I could find the file. Thanks!

    You could use these command lines to find the file :
    Code:
    sudo updatedb
    locate libmp3lame.so

    I had the same issue. Here's the pathname:
    /usr/lib/libmp3lame.so.0

    Actually you should use
    /usr/lib/libmp3lame.so

    True, that's what Audacity's asking for. But in /usr/lib there's ONLY libmp3lame.so.0
    How to fetch the one without 0?

    Re: Locating libmp3lame.so for Audacity

    Just place a link to that file. A library named libxyz.so is usually only a link to the most recent version of the library libxyz. So this should solve your problem:
    Code:
    ln -s  /usr/lib/libmp3lame.so.0  /usr/lib/libmp3lame.so

    That file is part of liblame-dev package, but symlink soname from liblame0 is the proper solution I guess.

    Use apt-file to find out what package provides the files you need.

    You do need liblame0 as well as liblame-dev.
    After installing both of them, I found the libmp3lame.so.0 in the /usr/lib/
