You'll need the GStreamer lame plugin from the Multiverse repository.
I'd go ahead and enable Universe and Multiverse by uncommenting them in
your sources.list (assuming they're not already). Invoke this in a
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Enter your user password when it asks. There's comments in sources.list
to guide you. Just remove the '#' marks from the beginning of the
appropriate lines. When that's done and saved invoke this in the same
sudo apt-get update
From there the gstreamer plugins should show up with an appropriate
search in Synaptic. If I search for 'lame' it's #10 on my list...
