burning mp3 to audio cd


I am using the gnome toaster to burn cd's and when I try to burn an mp3 to an audio cd i get this message,

the filter program for the suffix .mp3 could not be found on your system.

how to i set it up so that i can burn these cds. I have mpg123 installed which I thought would do this.

Right now mp3 is associated with mpg123. I am able to convert an mp3 file into a eav, but for 20 songs it takes up allot of space. I was wondering if there is a way to make Gnome Toaster do it for me so that I do not need to use this space.

Perhaps you can look at "Precache Audio Tracks" in Preferences. Turning this selection off might just help.

I had the same problem.
I fixed it by giving the fulle path to the mpg123-binary (/usr/local/bin/mpg123 in my case).
