    Default Looking for help with creating music.

    I am a newbie. Have used various versions of Linux over time. I am currently using Leap 15.0 and the KDE desktop. I created a file of tunes using K3B however I need them in MP3 format. My new car doesn't have a CD player but lots of usb ports.
    I been all of the settings on k3b but cannot find so fare where to select the output into mp3. Are there other burners out there that I could install on Leap? or is there a good manual on the k3b burner.
    I would appreciate any guidance on the problem.

    You can use VLC to convert.

    In the menu, under Media, Convert/Save.

    Follow the dialogues.

    Audacity has the widest range of conversion options; just load a file and then File>Extract Audio (it also does lots of other things).

    For midi, timidity will convert a midi file to ogg with
    Code:
    timidity -Ov --output-file=Some_file.ogg Some_file.midi
    You can then use Audacity to convert to mp3.

    youtube-dl has options to output in mp3

    You can do that from K3B, but you would
    - need to add the Packman repo, through YaST - Software - Software repositories. Trust the key and move on to
    - YaST Software Softwaremanager, click View - Repositories, and on the left select the Packman one.
    - Now click the "Switch system packages ....." link on the top right of the screen.
    - Next, search for "k3b-codecs" , "ffmpeg" and iinstall those.
    - Now you can use k3b to convert audio to mp3, flac, whatever
