Greets everyone.

 

I'm running Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon 64-bit (Cinnamon Version 3.0.7)

 

I'm having fun and learning a ton but have come up against a new minor issue / problem: which is what is the best / easiest way to make audio cds.

 

I'd like to be able to burn both MP3 discs as well as old school audio cds (songs, mostly).

 

As for software to do so, I've been mostly using Rhythmbox to manage and play my music - I've got thousands of songs - but when it came time to burn a CD, I couldn't find a way to do it.

 

I like Rhythmbox (and it's UI) but I'm not tied to it, so if someone else knows of an app that they like, please let me know.

 

 

I did the usual Google search and, as best as I can tell, I'm missing some type of plug-in in Rhythmbox that should allow me that option.

 

 

I tried making a CD with Brasero - and I was able to do so - but the interface was clunky and once the songs were dumped in there, I couldn't rearrange the order.  :mellow:

 

I found this and this but list in the foss freedom site is so large, I kind of got overwhelmed.

 

 

And as for my plug-in options in Rhythmbox, here's what I'm seeing:

So there you go.

 

Any illumination, always greatly appreciated.

Not a Mint user...but I have used K3b in Ubuntu. k3b - Linux Mint Community

See if it is in the Mint Software Center or whatever it's called. Otherwise, you can download from the link above.

Close rhythmbox, open Software Manager and type in "rhythmbox" and see if this is installed: rhythmbox-plugin-cdrecorder

 

If is isn't, then Install it, Log Out and back in, and re open rhythmbox.  From the menu select plugins and make sure the "Audio CD Recorder" is selected. 

 

If "rhythmbox-plugin-cdrecorder" is already installed you may try installing "mint-meta-codecs" Log Out and back in, and re open rhythmbox and again look for that Plugin.

Hola, buddy215, I haven't seen this app before but I just installed it and will test drive it. Thanks for the info.

:bananas:  Well heck, pcpunk, that worked like a charm!

 

Always like to let people know when a problem is [SOLVEDw00t!

 

Thank you two gents for the quick response as well as ideas and remedies.

 

I love this place. I love Linux. I love Mint

 

And, of course, I love lamp.

 

onward,

Like buddy said K3b is good

 

Which part worked, the first part or the second? did you have to install mint-meda-codecs also?

Hey there, sorry for the delay in my response. Things at work have been crazy & I couldn't stay logged in (or post) the other day while at work.

 

1st part worked.

 

Didn't even try the 2nd option, so I wound up not having to install the mint-meda-codecs.

 

Still haven't been able to test drive K3b but will get to it.

 

I love this place.
