really is a lot less farting around to do it in a terminal

Code:
for i in *.wav
do
  lame $i `basename $i .wav`.mp3
done
sooooooooooooo easy.

How about Konqueror. Open the directory with the wavs, highlight what you want, select 'Open With' then enter
mpg123 <Desired Options>
and it will convert all the files.

I don't use MP3, so the encoder name above might not be right? I am now an ogg man, but I simply 'Open' groups of wavs with oggenc, or to convert back to wavs, oggdec.

mpg123 isn't an encoder, just a player.

script

What is the name of the encoder in /usr/bin. That is what you would type in as 'Open With'. I really don't know because I use OGG. mp3enc. Putting in 'lame <options>' will work if it is installed.
