Ubuntu: How to “Rip” music with 16.04 LTS


I just upgraded from Ubuntu 12.04 LTS to 16.04 LTS.

I have a music CD that I wanted to add to my hard drive and I cannot find a tool to convert / "RIP" the music.

Sound Juicer is recommended and considered the "official" tool, however it is not available from the software catalog.

Searching for help on this finds results one year or older.

Has this functionality been removed or omitted for some reason?

Thank you,



It's there on 16.04.3 LTS:

$ cat /etc/issue  Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS \n \l   $ apt search sound-juicer  Sorting... Done  Full Text Search... Done  sound-juicer/xenial 3.18.1-1 amd64    GNOME CD Ripper  

I prefer a cli tool like cdparanoia, but I'm old-fashioned that way :)
