If you mean apetags:
Quote:
apetag - A command line ape 2.0 tagger

Apetag is command line tagging tool for music files such as Monkey's Audio and Musepack using the APE 2.0 standard.
Apetag comes with a python script, tagdir.py which will tag all tracks belonging to a given album based on the freedb record. (A simple tool for retrieved such records is freedbtool.) tagdir.py will invoke the appropriate tagging tool depending on the music files present. Currently supported are apetag for mpc files and metaflac for flac files. Also included is a simple script rmid3tag.py which removes id3v1 tags from arbitrary files.
Author: Robert Muth <robert@muth.org>
The level of support is unspecified
you can get it in the normal way via yast. It seems to be in the packman repo, so maybe you don't have that in your repo list.

Normally, another way of attacking the problem is to go via one click install http://software.opensuse.org/search; in this case I didn't see the package that you want in the one click install software database, but this method, when it works, has the advantage of automagically adding to your repo list (well, it asks), if that's what you want.

Apologies - I've put it back in the original post.

There are some rpms out and about - but I'm not sure how well they'll play with opensuse. At least, if you build from source you'll be better able to determine dependencies vs doing a force install from an rpm outside of opensuse's repos.

eg.
Code:
http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/freshrpms/fedora/5/mac/mac-3.99-2.u4b5.fc5.i386.html
cheers,

Just a shot in the dark, since I don't use/am not aware of Sound Converter for kde, but 2 possibilities come to mind.

The first is that during SC's installation process, it would check for available de/encoders and the choices are now hard-coded, thus you'll have to re-install the app.

Second is that the program in looking for de/encoders in /usr/bin, and mac may be installed elsewhere, eg. /usr/local/bin, in which case you'd either have to copy or soft link mac to wherever SC expects to find it.

cheers,

Well i tried to uninstall the programme and install it back but it didnt work!!!
Also i checked that "mac" command is in the path /usr/bin/ in the place where exactly the flac encoder is.

Searching a little more i found the following from the SoundConverter package

"A simple sound converter application for the GNOME environment.
It reads anything the GStreamer library can read, and writes WAV, FLAC, MP3, and Ogg Vorbis files."


So i should try searching for the gstreamer capabilities....
Anything good to suggest?
