ripperX starts from the command line but opens a GUI and works really good

I guess I didn't take L.A.M.E. very seriously, when I went to their website and it reads ->

GRIP

You should try Grip...works good with a nice GUI that you're looking for and it runs through cdparanoia and lame.

dekagen is another good one...uses a variety of ripping/encoding tools.
It's a terminal application, but still interactive.

i know your saying you want a gui, but seriosuly, look at that command, its probably easier to use that, or even simpify it further and put it in a script if you really wanted to ......
i know i am just throwing in my two cents, but remember GUI is not always better ...

is there a way to do more than one file or maybe a whole directory without having to do each file individually. or is there a way to make k3b use lame instead of its encode because i cant get k3b to burn mp3's.

yes. there is. just create a menu item in your kmenu called "lame" and use the command "lame --decode" without the quotes and enable run in terminal. now in your filemanager, go to where you keep your mp3 files and multiselect all the ones you want to convert. right click on one of the selected ones and choose open with. choose the lame menu item you created. a shell window will pop open up and begin converting all the mp3s to wav files. the filenames will be the same except for the file extensions. caveat, this works for kde. not sure about other desktop environments or window mangers.

he didn't ask that. he asked if he could create a wav file from an mp3.
