This is is my first try to rip an audio cd to flac files.

I am using ubuntu 17.10 and rhythmbox opened automatically after inserting the cd.

I did not find much information about this topic online, but it looks like there must be some "Export" button somewhere. Some tutorials mentioned that a right click on the disc opens a context menu with an entry "Import to library".

I cannot find any Export button and when I right click the disc, nothing happens.

How to proceed from here?

Bring up the menu from your screenshot.

Click on "View" then check "Select source toolbar"

Four buttons should appear along the top, one of which is "Extract"


enter image description herer

It may be hided "Source toolbar"

It my be wrong because I use Japanese version.
