Linux Burn MP3 CD On the Fly using

I finally decided to look into some utils that did this, and the first one I found is "mp3burn".  It is unbelievable simple and perfect. *2017-11 update and mp3burn is still available in standard repos such as Ubuntu 14/16 so this is a current and working project.

Just install the package and it gets all required libraries to convert and then burn's on the fly.  And you won't believe how simple it is.

I just want to a directory that had the MP3's I wanted to burn to an audio CD and typed "mp3burn *"

As you can see below, it detected my DVD burner and did the rest, it couldn't have been quicker or simpler.  This is one amazing utility that impressed me.  The author really thought things out here.
