Copying an Audio CD to MP3’s (a.k.a. Ripping) can also be done quite easily under Linux. Applications like iTunes and Windows Media Player do not exist under Linux, but that doesn’t mean that the Linux community is without means …
In this article I’ll show you, based on Ubuntu and ASunder, how to copy Audio CD’s to MP3 files.
So I wrote an article for Windows and MacOS X users, time to add one for Linux users as well – how to create an Audio CD.
Granted, most Linux users will not have a need for this article, but maybe it will be helpful for those of us that recently switched to Linux and do not really have an idea how to get started. Since there are so many variations of Linux, and this article not being focused on the die-hard Linux fan, I’ll be basing this article on Ubuntu (12) running a graphical user interface (X Windows) and using the program Brasero.
Audio CD’s are still being used. Either to protect the original CD you bought when it’s laying in the car, to compile a CD with your own favorites, or to make a CD from MP’3 you bought legit at Amazon.com for example.
