Kubuntu Default CD Ripping Software
There are two methods of ripping an Audio CD in a default installation of Kubuntu.
One is using Konqueror’s audiocd:/ KIO-slave and the other is
KaudioCreator (KMenu->Multimedia->KaudioCreator). On inserting the Audio CD, you should be presented with the KDE Audio CD Daemon.
To use the KIO-slave method, select the ‘Open in a new Window’ option.
Or, if you prefer using
KAudioCreator, select the Extract and Encode Audio tracks option.
RubyRipper has been recommended in many forum threads and seems to be one of Linux’s best ripping solutions. Also, many feel the closest to EAC in quality of rips.
RubyRipper is not included in the default Ubuntu install and is not included in any of the repositories. Fortunately there is a DEB package available.
