Ripping CDs using FLAC format in K3b

After trying to rip a CD to FLAC format with Kubuntu 7.10 I was surprised to find it doesn’t have FLAC as a ripping format option by default.

Getting the ability to use FLAC is simple though, it just requires 2 packages to be installed flac and libflac++6.

To install these just use the following command:
sudo apt-get install flac libflac++6
