I'M trying to edit the mp3 rip settings in rhythmbox in order to increase the quality to 320 kbs, but the edit button is locked in Ubuntu 12.04

Any help please?

The current solution specific to this question was answered here along with the general idea of how it will be done. Any relevant answer here should likely wait till the SRU upgrade to see how it is applied, if a ~/.gstreamer-0.10/presets is created, ect. – doug Apr 26 '12 at 15:04

In the meantime, just use Asunder. sudo apt-get install asunder. It works out of the box with fixed (up to 320 kbps) and variable bitrates. Though, I did have to go to preferences and change the CD-ROM device to /dev/sr0.
