Problem with lame and konqueror


Am running KDE 3.2 under Mandrake 10.1
Have lame installed to decode and encode mp3 and works fine under audacity.
An option in konqueror is to right mouse click and get an option to change a wav file to mp3 or visa-versa, however when I try to do this I get an error message that konqueror cant find the lame file (error message 'lame %f `echo %f | sed 's/\\\\.wav$//'`.mp3')

How do I get konqueror to find the correct location of lame ?

There is an option as well to code to ogg format and this works fine so I guess its nothing too difficult.

Do I need to recompile or something ?

I have asked this question on the KDE forum but no response, maybe someone can help here ?

Thanks for looking.

hm.. does lame work by itself from the command line line when you type 'lame'?

If YES, then Perhaps Konqueror doesn't have write permissions (just a guess )

if NO then lame isn't working properly. you can also try to run lame from it's install location, but I doubt this is the problem. anyhow if you type 'whereis lame', you should get '/usr/bin/lame' as one answer!

Lame is in usr/bin/lame

I just posted about this last week. Check out http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...highlight=lame for more. But basically there's a bug, which you've discovered as well. Lame is included in the encoder list, but isn't actually installed. Run 'rpm -qa | grep lame' in a terminal to see for yourself. If lame was installed, it would show up. Simply urpmi lame, or download it from rpmfind.net. Once you load lame you'll be off to the races.

Thanx for that iggep, but guess what I have lame installed
Output from rpm -qa | grep lame gives following response

liblame0-3.96.1-1plf
lame-mp3x-3.96.1-1plf
lame-3.96.1-1plf
liblame0-devel-3.96.1-1plf
liblame0-static-devel-3.96.1-1plf

Not off to the races yet, then !!!!!!!!!

You should have lame-3.96.1-1mdk installed, which I don't see on your list. Did you install the .plf files from a contrib site?

What happens if you try doing a urpmi --media main lame? I'm assuming your main is called main btw. Substitute your name for main if its different.

The files were obtained from the plf site as lame has copyright problems and cannot be part of the main distro, therefore if you do urpmi --media main lame then you get answer "no package named lame".
However if you do urpmi --media plf lame then the response is "everything already installed"

Anyone else an input into this problem ?
