Grip- "no write access to write encoded file"


I just installed grip from an rpm and I also installed lame so I could make my mp3's. After it rips a file to a wav, it won't encode. Instead I get the message in the subject. This is a new install of Mandrake 9.2 but I didn't have this problem last time when I was running Grip in Mandrake 9.2 before the new install. Help.

Additionally:

It had no problem with putting the wav's in the proper folder so I'm not sure what the problem is the writing the mp3 to the same folder. Perhaps I've missed something obscure in the configuration or perhaps I somehow have the wrong version of lame?

Thanks for any input you can provide.

it's not going to be the same folder, you 100% definitely have some sort of directory permissions error, check the file paths in the config settings once more.

Try ls -la and make sure you have read/write access to the "." folder.
Also read the manpage for lame and make sure it isn't trying to write the mp3's into another folder where you don't have r/w access.

Turns out I had one little character wrong (~ at the beginning) in the encoding path. It works great now.

That is used for your users home directory. If you had changed it elsewhere, I can see how it was affecting you.

cd ~
pwd
/home/<user>

Cheers.
