# easyMP3gain on ubuntu 18.04

Submitted by Nicola Rainiero on 2018-06-18

After the installation of the last version of Xubuntu, I discovered that easyMP3Gain doesn't function for this release. However with a little of research I found the correct way to install it and it is very easy!

The program is a graphical interface for MP3Gain, which analyzes and adjusts mp3 files so that they have the same volume. I use it a lot to normalize my music playlist, making some video and it works very well.

Probably I used this process even with the 16.04 release, but I am no sure. Anyway the software is simple and powerful, once imported the MP3 files and after making an analysis, you can set the target volume (default is 84 dB, but I use 95) and then apply this volume gain to them.

## Installation

The trick consists in the installation of the mp3gain binary first and then the GUI, in this manner:

1. Add a repository and install mp3gain
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flexiondotorg/audio
sudo apt install mp3gain

2. Download the correct version for your system from Sourceforge for ubuntu or xubuntu, I suggest the gtk2 version (instead of the QT one, preferred for kubuntu)
3. Install it with:
sudo gdebi easymp3gain-gtk2_0.5.0-2_i386.deb (32 bit version)
sudo gdebi easymp3gain-gtk2_0.5.0-2_amd64.deb (64 bit version)


That's all folks!
