Thanks for this, definitely a great find. I'm relatively new to Linux/Ubuntu so appreciate any patience with silly questions I might have. I'm trying to get EAC 1 beta 3 to run under Wine on Ubuntu 12.04. For some reason, the installer would not go under Wine, I would always get the NSIS error. I've tried to Google some solutions to that without any luck. I reinstalled Wine and all the packages that I read about but nothing changed. I succumbed to what may have been an easier solution, PlayOnLinux and this time, the installer worked like a charm. At launch, however, I got the same exception error that was solved in this thread. I tried the registering DLL trick as outlined here in the directories where PlayOnLinux installed EAC but I always got the message that the dll failed to load. I'm guessing that the virtual directory structure of PlayOnLinux is somehow interfering with Wine's regsvr32 command, but not sure. I also tried going through the PlayonLinux console and despite some error messages, it did say that it successfully registered the DLL but unfortunately the program still crashed. If Wine would just run the installer I wouldn't have to mess with PlayOnLinux but if anyone can help with either problem, that would be highly appreciated. Perhaps I did something wrong in the Wine install?
By the way, I'm running Ubuntu on a very old Compaq Pentium 4 desktop. Sometimes a little sluggish but overall running fine. Thanks in advance for any help. I noticed that PlayonLinux now officially supports Mp3Tag, another Windows favourite, so perhaps EAC is coming soon....
well feelfreetoblameme [cool moniker ] personally readin what you have written i would remove and purge PlayonLinux [it probably i am guessing places bits and pieces in different places] if you do not use it for other software and start again from scratch with earlier guide
I am not saying it will work for absolutely all setups on all types of machine but with the latest version of wine you should be fine here [i first did this on 12.04 now using it on 13.04]
best of luck and please tell us how you fare

Thanks for the quick reply (and the compliment!). I think I will probably end up wiping this 12.04 install altogether and start from scratch to try and solve the NSIS error. Redo Wine and go from there without messing with PlayonLinux. I'll post back, see if it works. Great guide on Hydrogen audio, by the way, thanks for that too.
thanks your guide works wonders under 13.04
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64bit Gnome 3.10 ~ AMD FX-6200 3.8GHZ ~ 32GB DDR3 1866 ~ AMD Radeon HD 7750 1GB ~ 1 120gb SSD (Linux) & 1 4tb HD (Media)
if any of you want to install EAC on Saucy you will likely require this
Just my experience: Under Mint 16 x64, I have to update wine to 1.7 (development) using the oficial ppa.
Using the stable version 1.4.1, i was not able to install EAC 1b3.
Now, with 1.7 it works.
Then i got a disc i wanted to back up in Flac for my personal use on my computer and found that my eight-year-old computer's cd drive NEC DVD_RW ND-3550A
could not handle it; so since I had always wanted to add a bluray external to my setup I just did that and got a spanking new Samsung SE-506BB
So far very nice...
But EAC only seems to want and see the 'in house' piece of kit
Then readin around it appears that one needs to go to the Interface section in EAC options and click on ASPI instead of the default Native
And voila! [the Note is probably from earlier times no longer an issue ASPI is in modern versions it seems]

I think it's very interesting to read this (especially the table at the end): https://thomas.apestaart.org/thomas/trac/wiki/DAD/Rip
That said, I'm not about to redo my CD collection with EAC (originally used Audex, which uses cdparanoia). I really doubt I'll be able to hear any difference.
What would happen if your hard disk died right now?
Temüjin i hear no difference myself i just like to play ::]] but i do hear difference between lossless and lossy since i play all computer music through stereo PS Morituri can now do ALL that EAC does but you need to be a Python coder to get all the settings right .... ouch ,,,, but see even more info in the log

PS2 a great way to do a rip is this here:
[adjust number to number of tracks of course]Code:cdparanoia -d /dev/cdrom -q -v --output-wav --batch 1-13
IF SCRATCHEDCode:cdparanoia -d /dev/cdrom -Y -v --output-wav --batch --force-read-speed 1 1-10
also good if ripping twice and comparing both rips like EAC Morituri and Rubyripper sends one to yawn and sleep
RIP FROM WODIM===================
To copy an audio CD in the most accurate way, first run
and then to write runCode:icedax dev=/dev/cdrom -vall cddb=0 -B -Owav
Code:wodim dev=/dev/cdrom -v speed=2 -dao -useinfo -text *.wav
