    Re: HOWTO: Install Rubyripper on Ubuntu

    For some reason I get this (see below) when I run "make install" any ideas? I have installed all the required and suggested dependants from the Readme. and followed the ./configure steps.

    Install GNU Gettext then set PATH or MSGMERGE_PATH correctly.
    	from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/gettext/utils.rb:94:in `msgmerge_all'
    	from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/gettext/utils.rb:147:in `update_pofiles'
    	from configure:84:in `update_lang'
    	from configure:169
    	from configure:147:in `each'
    	from configure:147
    make: *** [all] Error 1

    Well something's not right. Maybe post your configure or compare to this one I just did with 0.5.7
    ( encoders aren't required to install

    doug@doug-desktop:~/Desktop/rubyripper-0.5.7$ ./configure --enable-lang-all --enable-gtk2 --enable-cli --prefix=/usr
    Checking the NEEDED dependencies....
    cdparanoia found...

    Checking the OPTIONAL dependencies...
    Testing support for the graphical frontend...
    ruby-gtk2 bindings found

    Testing support for freedb metadata fetching...
    cd-discid or discid found...

    Testing support for ejecting the disk tray...
    eject or disktutil found...

    Testing support for different codecs on your system...
    flac found...
    oggenc (vorbis) found...
    lame (mp3) found...

    wavegain NOT found.
    vorbisgain found...
    mp3gain found...

    Testing support for normalize...
    normalize NOT found
    Creating the Makefile...
    A summary of your settings:

    Using the following locations for install:
    * Executables: /usr/bin
    * Localization files: /usr/share/locale
    * Icon file: /usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/apps
    * Desktop file: /usr/share/applications
    * Ruby library: /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8

    Gtk2 frontend will be installed
    Cli frontend will be installed
    Languages to be installed: nl, de, fr, hu, ru, es, se, bg

    You can now run make install
    Make sure you've got the writing privileges

    Otherwise I've posted a 0.6 beta deb in post 86, it's good for any ubuntu release 8.04 thru 10.04

    ( doesn't install encoders, if used install them yourself, after install you can search rubyripper in synaptic, right click on the package and the install recommends and suggests will show you what's installed (greyed out) and what's not

    1) how do you parameter the bitrate for MP3 (the test with VLC I did renders me a file at 128 kb/s and in Nautilus it's 51 kbps !!!) Personnaly, I would like to rip at 160 kbps.
    2) what is "cuesheet" and is it important ?
    3) is it important to parameter "Cdrom offset" because I didn't find how to.

    I'm very sorry for my poor english I hope you can manage with it (you know I'm french !!!).

    Thanks for your answers...

    Best Regards

    Not sure about 2 & 3, but I think I've managed 1!

    OK, so, by default LAME encodes at a constant bitrate, but rubyripper passes in the '-V 3' parameter, which sets it to a variable bitrate (the '3' is to do with the quality). If you delete the '-V 3' part and replace it with '-b 160' then that will encode at a constant bitrate of 160kbps. Try typing 'man lame' into a terminal, that'll give you all the options you can pass in.

    That seems to work for me

    @duralex69 (Post #83)


    man lame
    or here*checkout*/lame/lame/USAGE

    Personal note: I would rather chose 192 VBR than 160 CBR. File sizes will be quite similar but the former will give a better sound quality.

    You can rip track by track - 1 track = 1 file, or as a single file + CUE sheet (text file with the album, track, track duration, etc. information)

    Single file + CUE is the best audiophile format for archiving music collection. beware Linux players do not (some exceptions) handle CUE sheet yet, at least on GNOME. There is no point ripping with a lossy codec on a single file, but this is me.

    The" audiophile" way is: copying the album with a lossless codec (WavPack, Flac, etc) as a single file/CUE - that's the source. Then split the album or songs you like and encode them with lossy codec (.ogg, .mp3, etc) according to need (portable player, car player, etc.).

    Here for CDrom-offset

    There is a link to click on the Rubyripper to click. That brings you here: Just check your cdrom, see the offset setting (+n) and report it in the Rubyripper setting field. If you don't find your CDrom, either the model has not been reported yet, either you don't need to set anything.

    Re: HOWTO: Install Rubyripper on Ubuntu

    I can't get RubyRipper to read from CDDB, and can't get Juicer to accept MP3 as a profile. So it's either no MP3 or no CDDB for me.

    Can't anyone make an audio extraction program that just freakin' works?!?!

    Obviously people have had very little trouble in those regards, -
    for gstreamer mp3 encoding either install the fluendo gstreamer plugin (search gstreamer in synaptic) or
    sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse
    You haven't said how you got, installed, RR, whether from building, ppa or otherwise. For cddb you need
    sudo apt-get install cd-discid

    I got juicer working great, and it is amazingly fast, too. Regrettably, RubyRipper still fails to query CDDB, and I had the dependency you mentioned installed all along. I've installed it from PPA. A plain and current step-by-step to get it going in Karmic would be a nice find!

    RubyRipper still fails to query CDDB
    I've never had an issue there, it you wish maybe try the RR beta I attached to post 86 ( could use updating

    If so make sure you remove the ppa packages first

    also maybe delete or rename the config folder in your home dir.
