k3b wont burn mp3s

how can i get k3b to burn mp3s. when i try to drag one to the songlist, it pops this up:

Unable to handle the following files due to an unsupported format

do i need a plugin? where do i get it? where do i put it?
thanks for anything

i hear this will work, but i may be wrong (i don't have k3b installed currently to test it out):

1) download

2) decompress the .tar.gz and do a ./configure, make, and as root make install

3) then,
ln -s /usr/local/lib/ /opt/kde/lib/
tell me if it works.

It was not so simple for me-) You will need some libs for installation of id3lib-3.8.3 - you can find all of them on

Hi joeman3429,

Update your yum.conf file. Use the one here...

Replace the old one found in /etc with the one above

Simply become root in a terminal and type yum install k3b-mp3

You should be good to go. let me know if this works for you.
