Hello, My OS is unbuntu 5.1. In the Sound & Video application ( sound juice CD ripper ) to record mp3 format it says that I need to download a Lame mp3 encoder but for some reason I cannot. Can you please inform me what to do.

regards. Walrus.

Dear Sir,

Please specify which reasons you can't have LAME encoder??

system>admin>software sources, check all boxes,

Please check : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu

and install repositories.

then you should be able to find LAME in synaptic package manager.

Thanks

As Realiser says just work through the medibuntu worksheet

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu

and then go up to the top taskbar and click on

System - Administration - Synaptic Package Manager

it asks for your normal user password, not your SuperUser/Root one. Use either search tool but i prefer the "Search" button because it looks in package descriptions as well as in titles so it lets me be a lot more vague about what type of thing i'm looking for, try searching for "lame" (lower-case). Everything that's already installed on your system is marked by a green splodge, to download & install something new just right-click. When you have finished choosing everything click on "Apply" and leave it to get on with doing all that.

Good luck with that!
