GtkPod Fails to Convert ogg to MP3

Written by James McDonald

May 11, 2009

Just tried to install some oggs onto my wife’s iPod Shuffle 1G and using the add Files button from within GTKPod I get an error similar to:

/usr/share/gtkpod-aac/scripts/convert-2mp3.sh exit status 5

I had to install the following to make it work.

sudo apt-get install id3v2 lame vorbis-tools

    Thanks for the tip — now my wife can jam the Korn on her shuffle! 😉
