In this article I will show you how to install WxMP3val on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal and Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin.

wxMP3val is a frontend for the command line tool MP3val.

It scans MP3 files, validates them if they are ok, or repairs them if it is needed.

Before fixing the audio files, back them up first, because wxMP3val deletes the original file, after fixing it.  But, you have a setting for keeping the original file, with the .bak extension.

To install WxMP3val on Ubuntu, we have a PPA:

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:cfgnunes/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install wxmp3val


You can install also, from the same PPA wxMP3gain, which is a volume gainer for MP3s, and wxLame, which is an MP3 encoder:

$ sudo apt-get install wxlame
$ sudo apt-get install wxmp3gain
