install AcidRip


Want to install Acidrip. Couldn't find it in the 'package installer" and tried command line "sudo apt-get install acidrip" but it said "Unable to locate package acidrip"? So, is this software still available? See, it's been about 2 1/2 yrs. since I've used AcidRip. Now that i'm back to Linux, I'm setting up LM 18.2 and would like to have this package. If not...could you reccommend another good DVD ripper compatable with LM. (BTW...yes I searched "net")
Stay Sharp:

TBH, the last time I looked into this was around 03, and back then I decided that tccat (part of Transcode) was actually the best solution.

Here are some alternatives. http://ubuntu-install.blogspot.com/2...linux.html?m=1

Isn't this what you're looking for? https://packages.ubuntu.com/uk/trust...idrip/download

It might be in the Debian Multimedia repository.

Unless there are 2 different ones, it is in the Mint software manager.

OK, next...tried the Ubuntu designated line and got the same thing. Something fishy going on! How/where do I get/install the Ubuntu repository in mint? Didn't you say it was located there? And lastly...I'm looking for a good CD ripper that encodes .ape as well as many other formats. You know of any? Tell you, goggling isn't doing me any good.

THANX:

Did you try to download the .deb file from one of those links and see if any of those install. Mint uses the Ubuntu repo for the most part.

Question

TO: Miil J

Ahm... awhile after I posted last evening, I did go to the second link and YES...there I did find and install "AcidRip". THANK YOU Still baffled as to why I couldn't find the website or it being in the repositories, nor could it be 'found" by the 'terminal" process. Oh, well... would you know of a good opensource program for ripping CD's to .ape format? I previously used FAIRSTARS, but couldn't find it adaptable to LINUX. Went through a multitude of programs in "google search" but didn't find a one that could rip .ape.
I know, your thoughts are probably...well just rip to FLAC. Could, but would prefer .ape Hey, THANKS for all the good info!

You're Welcome

I don't much about dvd rippers. I'd suggest mark this thread solved than start a new one with that question.

But this site might help http://alternativeto.net/software/fairstars-cd-ripper/

Hey Mill J

There's no need to consider getting/finding me a CD ripper. I just wondered if you knew of one you might recommend. BTW, Acidrip is a DVD ripper...FAIRSTARS is a CD ripper. From what I've found, FAIRSTARS does not configure their product for any O.S but Windows. Didn't see nor could find anything pertaining to Mac either. One would think MSWin has paid off these folks? And, MSWin did not develop Fairstars. It's too bad the folks a Fairstars can't "see the light" and open their product to the Mac/Linux market, for their "ripper" is one of the best I've used!!! But, I digress...so I'll keep searching and maybe I'll find someone(a program)that meets my requirements. Appreciate all your help.

If you rip to wav, you might be able to convert wav to ape.

TO: AwesomeMachine:

Thanx for responding. Ahmm... no thanx, that's just an extra process I don't want/need to do. Besides, I do my best to avoid anything associated with Micros*%t!!! I did find "Asunder" and it claims it can rip .ape. Although, when I downloaded it, I could not find the "tool" for doing so. Did some checking and it claims (once again) that it can rip .ape(?) I found version 1.9.3 and ...supposedly version 2.8(I believe) that are supposed to rip .ape and I will, again, D/l and explore them for I must have missed something. Yes, I'd love to have Fairstars, however, I cannot find where they configure any of their products for Linux or Mac. Too bad for I found it to be the best CD ripper I've ever used! The reason for .ape is simple, it's lossless (EAC) and just a bit smaller than a FLAC file. Otherwise, FLAC is just fine.

To seasons

Thanx for replying. I reinstalled Asunder and took some time to look it over. I DID find the menu for using/ripping to .ape!Haven't used it yet, but plan on doing so soon. Thanx for the "link".Quite a bit of info there. Also, I did finally find/install AcidRip. Can't say why it wouldn't/didn't load from the "terminal" commands nor why I had to go to Ubuntu repositories to get it. Anyways, all is good now.

Stay Sharp:
