As of upgrading 14.04 I've had a problem with RipOff (i.e. 0.8.3). I get
"No valid RipOff encoding plugin could be found"
Under Preferences/Plugins lo-and-behold no plugins - not even the free ones! The Preferences and About buttons under the empty plugin list are greyed out :( Presumably there I could configure where to find any plugins.
The Software Center says I have RipOff Installed (which I do), the Synaptic Manager says I have it installed, including the MP3 ripoff library in the hope that that might work.
I've completely uninstalled, including removing the mp3 library using the Synaptic Package Manager, and reinstalled with no success.
I presume the plugins are somewhere, just not where ripoff is looking for them? Anyone had this problem? I've not done anything fancy with this machine (I rely on it!)
Incidentally, I've tried extracting tracks from my CDs from Rhythmbox, and I get something about the operation is not supported by the back end. Does something get removed on upgrading? On upgrading, Rhythmbox seemed to rewrite the track titles for the CDs I have in my collection. This is a separate problem, but may indicate some other symptom?
