To export mp3 files in audacity we need a special mp3 library called lame. To install this, it is very simple follow these procedures to export mp3 files in audacity and enjoy a great mp3 experience.

  1. Open the “Synaptic” software-package manager.
  • In GNOME (the default desktop environment for Ubuntu and many other systems), you can find it by clicking on the “System” menu at the top of the screen, and then choosing “Administration”.
  • In KDE (the desktop environment for Kubuntu and many other systems), there will be a similar menu accessible from the bottom-left of the screen.
  • In all desktop environments, you can open up a command-line terminal and type “gksu synaptic” or “sudo synaptic”.
  • Enter your Ubuntu user password when asked for it.
  • In the Synaptic window, choose “Settings”, then “Repositories”.
  • In the "Ubuntu Software" tab, check the box for Software restricted by legal or copyright issues (“multiverse”), and then the Close button
  • Back in the main Synaptic Window, type “lame” in the "Quick search" box
  • The search results will show the packages “lame” and “libmp3lame0” at the top of the list. Mark both for installation (by double-clicking).
