Ubuntu – Sound converter on Ubuntu Gnome offers no option for converting audios to mp3


I often use sound converter to convert my audio files to mp3 and It works perfectly on Ubuntu Unity but when I move to Ubuntu Gnome there is no option for mp3 format.

Sound converter does show how to install a codec to enable the function but the codec has been already installed on my computer.

How can I enable mp3 coverting, or is there any other software that works?

It might be late, but still for others who are still looking to encode into mp3 using Sound Converter, install gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly .
