k3B - Missing 'K3b MAD Decoder'

Postby lazza727 » Sat Nov 28, 2009 6:34 pm

I am a relatively new user of Mint and when I installed Linux Mint 7 K3b worked a treat.

I have now installed Linux Mint 8 and K3b and I have discovered that I can no longer burn new CD projects when I download any MP3 files (such as BBC podcasts or MP3 files).

It appears that the K3b 'MAD Decoder' Plugin is missing. I have spent a couple of hours trying to research this fault with no resolution.

I am lost without K3b - can you please help?

the package you need to install is libk3b6-extracodecs.

from the terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libk3b6-extracodecs



ps, this question would have been better suited for the support section of the forum under software and applications.
