Install Asunder in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, A Powerful Audio-CD Ripper/Endocer for GNU/Linux!

If have all the proper codecs installed then ripping an audio CD (not ripping it apart, you know the software version, ...just kidding :P) in GNU/Linux is pretty darn easy. In that sense for most of us, installing another dedicated audio-CD ripper like the Asunder may not be necessary. But...

... once installed, Asunder will let you do almost anything with your audio-CD. For instance, out of the box, it can be used to convert your large in size audio-tracks to a lot of both lossey and lossless, proprietary and open sources codecs with ease.

Main features...

*. Supports re-encoding WAV to WAV and MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, Wavpack, Musepack, AAC, and Monkey's audio files.

*. While the encoding goes on, Asunder automatically search an internet based audio CD database called CDDB (a standard method actually, not a brand) and fetch album information, etc automatically. 

*. Manually add Year, Title, etc.

*. Automatically creates M3U playlists for the encoded files.

*. Rip and encode at the same time.

*. Although it's written in GTK+ but does not depend on any desktop environment either.

So if you have installed Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal or 10.10 or 10.04... then you can easily install Asunder by entering the below command in your Terminal.
sudo apt-get install asunder
If that does not work under 11.04, then simply download the .deb file from here and double click on it. That should do it.
