Bug#509787: please suggest the installation of an mp3 encoder package to enable mp3 ripping

Stefano Zacchiroli
Package: sound-juicer
Version: 2.22.0-2
Severity: wishlist

According to random posts on the net, ripping mp3 with sound-juicer is
difficult, which is way far from true.

AFAICT, the needed gstreamer pipeline is already enabled, but will not
work untile lame/gstreamer*-lame are installed. This is quite
misleading for the user because in the sound-juicer preferences the
tick "active" associated to the mp3 pipeline is enabled, even when it
cannot be selected (to to the lack of lame).

Can you please suggest the installation of lame somewhere, so that the
user has a hint of what is missing to rip CDs as mp3 files? Currently
there is no clue whatsoever ...

Cheers.

PS yes, I know that there are no lame/gstreamer*-lame in the official
   Debian archive, but I believe that for several users knowing that
   lame is missing will be enough to know where to find it

Isn't it against policy to recommend a package which can't be installed
on a standard Debian install?

Right. Joss has mentioned them in the long description, and added them to Suggests.

Cheers,

I think I wasn't clear enough. I didn't mean to "Suggest" in the sense
of inter-package relationships, but in some more user-oriented
sense. I was thinking at a pop-up, a plug in the documentation, but
now that I think of it even an entry in README.Debian would do.

Cheers.

 I guess we would need gstpbutils-0.10 support in SJ, just as in totem
