K3B and Brasero won't burn MP3's to DVD's Mint 19 cinnamon

Post by mhbell » Mon Nov 19, 2018 1:18 am

I have tried to burn MP3's from my hard drive collection to a DVD in mint19. It won't do it using K3B I get the following error
MP3 Audio Decoder plugin not found.
K3b could not load or find the MP3 decoder plugin. This means that you will not be able to create Audio CDs from MP3 files. Many Linux distributions do not include MP3 support for legal reasons.
Solution: To enable MP3 support, please install the MAD MP3 decoding library as well as the K3b MAD MP3 decoder plugin (the latter may already be installed but not functional due to the missing libmad). Some distributions allow installation of MP3 support via an online update tool.
I have tried Brasero and it don't work either, I also tried using K3B and Brasero in Siduction, Fedora, and others. Did not work. does the Burning software in linux no longer support burning MP3's to DVD's Never had this problem before. I can burn them as a data disc but not as a music disc.

Hi mhbell,

You can use "xfburn" to do burn mp3 audio/music files to a CD. You cannot burn music/audio files to a DVD, but you can copy them to a DVD using the "Data" option of the various DVD/CD applications.


To get "K3b" working well in Linux Mint 19.x see post below.

Hi, I had a similar problem trying to write .ogg files to a CD-R with Brasero. My brasero-session.log file contained this:

Checking session consistency (brasero_burn_check_session_consistency brasero-burn.c:1739)
Unsupported type of task operation
Session error : An internal error occurred (brasero_burn_record brasero-burn.c:2856)

Based on posts in other forums, I made 2 changes:

1. From the Synaptic Package Manager, I installed "brasero-cdrkit". This caused Brasero to generate more entries in brasero.session.log before the next fatal error. I don't know if this step was necessary or not.
The next time I tried to burn to CD-R, my brasero-session.log file changed to this:

Checking session consistency (brasero_burn_check_session_consistency brasero-burn.c:1739)

...but still could not burn a CD-R.

2. I set the file permissions of the files /usr/bin/cdrdao, /usr/bin/wodim, /usr/bin/growisofs to (octal) 4711, and verified that owner id and group id were both "root", i.e.

sudo chmod -v 4711 /usr/bin/cdrdao
sudo chmod -v 4711 /usr/bin/wodim
sudo chmod -v 4711 /usr/bin/growisofs

Brasero was able to burn my specified files to CD-R after that. I think that would have taken me a while to figure out by myself.

brasero has always been problematic at best...just use xfburn...i do and have never had these kind of problems.

Code: Select all

sudo apt install xfburn
