K3b installation of the MP3 codec

December 2016

Issue


I want to burn a MP3 with k3b, but I can not activate the following package: libk3b6-extracodecs

Yet I think it's installed, because when I did a search, it is found here:
/usr/share/doc 
/var/cache/apt/archives 
/var/lib/dpkg/info 
/var/lib/dpkg/info 


If I run the following command, the result is:
jp@jp-Precision-WorkStation-470:~$ sudo apt-get install libk3b6-extracodecs 
[sudo] password for jp:.... 

Solution


Make use of « sudo dpkg --configure -a » to correct this issue.

Thanks to zipe31 for this tip.
