This article describes how to rip music off an audio CD in acceptable shape with a moderate bitrate and in MP3 format on Linux Mint 11. There are are numerous ways of ripping a CD on Linux, but not all of them provide the standard comfort one should have, for instance a fairly high bitrate for your music, so that it does not sound like hammering on a trashcan with an iron spoon, or automated fetching of disk and track information from the internet, so you do not have to do it all manually. The way I describe should provide all these things, however it may be that if you are ripping a rather unknown audio disk, there is no data about it on the CD database.
