Apparently the Sound Juicer Help is wrong for dapper ( used to work on
breezy) : Try instead...

1.- System > Help > Ubuntu Book

2.- Select Chapters > "Using Ubuntu on the Desktop"

3.- Search: "Ripping Songs as MP3s"

" You should first install the gstreamer-10-ugly-multiverse package (from
the Multiverse repository). Next, in Sound Juicer click Edit > Preferences
and click the Edit Profiles button. In the dialog box that pops up, click
New, call the profile MP3, and then select it from the list and click Edit.

Now fill in the settings with the following information:

Profile Description: MP3 Encoder
GStreamer Pipeline: audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc
File Extension: mp3

Check the Active box, and click OK. Now close the Profiles dialog box, and
click Close to close the Preferences box. Restart Sound Juicer, and you
can now select MP3 from the Format combo box in the Preferences box. "

Sorry for the misinformation...

The approach above appears to work fine here...
