Problems with Grip & KAudioCreator


I'm having multiple problems ripping tracks with these two programs. Both are the newest versions available through Apt, first of all.

The smallest problem is with Grip. Whenever I encode an .ogg file, the track number tag is blank. I'm guessing that something is keeping the track number from getting passed to oggenc, but I really have no idea. Encoding to .mp3 with lame works fine. I've read through both Grip's help files and the oggenc man page and, frankly, oggenc's command line options are just too confusing for me. The settings in Grip haven't been changed from the original presets: "-o %m -a %a -l %d -t %n -d %y -G %G -b %b %w". Any ideas what to do to get it working?

I'm having more trouble with KAudioCreator. First, using oggenc, I get even worse tag problems than with Grip. Neither the album field nor the track number field resolve to their actual values. They just show "%album" and "%tra". The oggenc settings in KAC are "oggenc -o %o --artist %artist --album %album --title %title --date %year --tracknum %track --genre %genre %f", but I have a feeling that the problem isn't in these settings, because of the error message I mention below.

The second problem with KAC is that lame doesn't work at all. Ripping works fine, but as soon as it gets to encoding I get an error: "The encoded file was not created. Please check the encoder options.". It also gives me this lame error output such as:
Code:
lame --preset standard --tt 'Flying' --ta 'Beatles' --tl
%album --ty '1967' --tn %track --tg 'Rock' '~/music/working/temp/beIJic.tmp'
'~/music/working/Beatles/Magical Mystery Tour/Beatles_-_Magical Mystery
Tour_-_03_-_Flying'

ERROR, unknown --preset profile: dm-standard
For more preset details, refer to --preset longhelp.
As I mentioned above, I notice that the album and track info don't seem to be getting passed on here either.

The lame settings in KAC are again, the normal presets: "lame --preset standard --tt %title --ta %artist --tl %album --ty %year --tn %track --tg %genre %f %o"

Well, that's it. I'm not sure what else to mention. All the other settings seem to be ok. Can anyone help me with these three problems? Overall, I prefer using Grip and I don't like using .mp3, so the last problem is actually the least important to me, but I'd like to get them all working if possible. I'll take whatever help I can get. Thanks.

Oh yeah, a final question. How can I use .ogg's 1-10 preset settings in either of these programs, instead of setting the bitrate?

I am having a problem with KAudioCreator, too. Mine is mostly regarding the command-line parameters to pass to lame. I add "-b 160" to let lame use a fixed bitrate of 160 Kbps, but the added option does not get saved at all. The config file (~/.kde/share/config/kaudiocreatorrc) does not have the command-line option there either. Is this a bug with KAudioCreator?
