Convert MP3 to AAC [ solved ]

Postby 8andsand on Wed Jan 06, 2010 5:41 am

Hello I recently broke free from windows. Im loving Linux Mint. The only thing I cant figure out how to do is convert MP3 files to AAC. I need to convert them so my phone will recognize them properly. Im using Linux Mint 8 Helena. I have tried searching google and keep coming up empty.....Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Run this command in terminal [Menu-->Terminal]
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install soundconverter

This will install soundconverter which will allow you to convert between many formats.

Thanks for the quick reply. I tried putting that in the terminal and this is what I got.

Hey I got soundconverter to work. After some sleep I got some of my google-fu back and found and downloaded the deb file. Thanks again for the suggestion it works great and does exactly what I want. Now I just wonder why it wouldn't load from the terminal?

Hi

Your source list may be outdated.Run the commands suggested
and your lists should be updated.

Run these commands in terminal
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update

and then
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update --fix-missing

If you still have a problem after running the commands let me know.

I ran the code and everything worked great. I ran the original code again and it told me I already had the newest version of soundconverter installed. Thanks again for all the help soundconverter does exactly what I needed.
