On Ubuntu 10.10, if you get an error message as the following when trying to create audio CD from mp3:
“Unable to handle the following files due to an unsupported format:
You may manually convert these audio files to wave using another application supporting the audio format and then add the wave files to the K3b project.”
Check if you have
libk3b6-extracodecs installed, if not just;
$ sudo apt-get install libk3b6-extracodecs
It fixed my problem.

Banshee just crashed on me with the following error message:

I think this is how it happened. My computer hanged while Banshee was running, and I had to force reboot it. Hence, the Banshee database file was corrupted. Thanks to boombox1387 from Ubuntu forum, this problem can be fixed as the following:
sudo apt-get install sqlite3
Dump the database in an SQL text format:
sqlite3 banshee.db ".dump" > dump
Backup the (corrupted) database:
mv banshee.db banshee.db.backup
Create and restore a database from dump file:
cat dump | sqlite3 banshee.db
Banshee started up again. Both files: dump and banshee.db can be removed.

Ever since I upgraded my Ubuntu desktop from 9.04 to 10.4, I have been having problems with Amarok dropping sound randomly. For example, if Amarok is playing the music and another program requires to use sound, Amarok will become silence.
One solution to restore sound in Amarok is to kill pulseaudio and restart Amarok. It works, but very annoying.
Fortunately, installing libxine1-gnome and configure Amarok to use Esound (ESD) instead of PulseAudio fixed the problem.
Thanks to this bug report https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/amarok/+bug/176332

You can do many things, but one of them has to be:
