mp3 ripper for linux


I'm looking for something that will rip my cd's and convert them to mp3's that I can put on my iPod. What's a good linux app for this? Does k3b have an encoder or is there something else I should use?

I've always used 'grip' to rip CD's, stable and pretty quick. http://nostatic.org/grip/

Okay, I'll be the devil's advocate.

I switched from Grip to KAudioCreator because Grip would crash very often on me. I use "lame" as the underlying encoder with both Grip and KAudioCreator, so the frontend doesn't make a whole lot of difference to me.

If Grip works stably for you, I don't see any reason to not use it, though.

To rip one track at a time from CD into mp3 format:
Code:
cdparanoia "n" - | lame - "track-n.mp3"
where n is the desired track.

If you want to do the whole CD:
Code:
#!/bin/sh

count=1
numTracks=$1
destDir=$2

until test $count -gt $numTracks
   do
   cdparanoia "$count" - | lame - "$destDir/track$count.mp3"
   let "count=$count+1"
   done
see "man lame" and "man cdparanoia" for details

I hope this helps

Grip keeps crashing when I try to close it. No biggie. Either way, with Grip and KAudioCreator, I don't have a 'lame' encoder. I tried to apt-get install lame but it said that lame is an obsolete package. I have no manual entry for lame either so I guess it's not there. I'm going to keep looking for it but if anyone can give me a shortcut to finding a .deb or tarball I'd appreciate it.

I've uploaded the tarball on my Web space. Please feel free to grab it.

I tried to use kaudiocreator because it would do the cddb lookup for me, and fill in the tags.
I found, however, that is was really unstable!!!
I tried the command line path, which worked fine, except it didn't set any of the mp3 tags.
Is there a command line solution for doing the cddb lookup?


P.S. I'm using cdparanoia and lame

Which version of KAudioCreator are you using? The version that came with KDE 3.1.5 was really unstable, but it has improved quite a bit since then. I currently use 1.12, which came with KDE 3.4 Beta1, with cdparanoia and lame as the backend apps. I've never had any major issue with it.

IBall,
I like your script! Hope you don't mind, I put a couple of sanity checks in.
Code:
#!/bin/bash
#If you want to do the whole cd, run this script.
#Example: ./test 27 /home/music

usage()
{
        echo "Usage: $0 [NumTracks] [DestDir]"
        exit 1;
}

test "$1" || usage
test -d "$2" || usage

count=1
numTracks=$1
destDir=$2

until test $count -gt $numTracks
   do
   cdparanoia "$count" - | lame - "$destDir/song$count.mp3"
   let "count=$count+1"
   done
