MP3 Problem For K3b
« on: November 15, 2013, 07:49:27 pm »
I keep getting the same thing pop up every time I run K3b telling me I can install MP3 encoding package but it doesn't do anything.
What can I do to stop it from poping up every time I run K3b or can I check to see if it's already installed and K3b can't see it.

You can stop that notification from popping up (see here):
Quote
Once the notification appears, click the X to close it. This will leave an icon in the system tray (blue world w/arrow).
Right-click on it and you have the option to 'Never show again'.
Check that and it won't ever appear again when you launch K3b

But check if lame is installed:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install lame

OK, go to in k3b:
Settings->Configure K3b->Plugins
and see if K3b Lame Mp3 Encoder is present and enabled.
If not the you may need to install libk3b6-extracodecs
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libk3b6-extracodecs

Looks like it's not installed, so I'll install it.

I know sod all about K3b (it starts with a K, so I immediately consider it evil ;) ), but is the lame package installed ?
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep lame

[EDIT]

If it's mentioning a licensing issue .. have you got the ubuntu and kubuntu restricted-extras packages installed ?
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep restricted-extras

Doesnt come up with  install the mp3 stuff now, don't know whether it's due to telling it not to notify me or what I've just done in re-installing the restricted extras but the mp3 plugin is not there in the list as in the post where I show the list of plugins...

What are the settings of the "K3b external audio encoding" plugin ?

I have been using K3b for a long time and find it to be the best CD burner software around. Although I had no problem like this on my Debian Testing based SolydX install, i did come across some reports that there seems to be a bug affecting K3b shipped with K/Ubuntu 12.04
