It appears that Debian's K3b can handle 24-bit FLAC files if the libsndfile plugin is included in the build.
I have tested this by: 1. installing libsndfile1-dev (a missing Build-Depends?) 2. adding debian/tmp/usr/lib/kde3/libk3blibsndfiledecoder* to src/k3b-1.0.5/debian/libk3b3-extracodecs.install 3. building then running K3b 4. adding 24-bit FLAC files to an audio CD project, where they appear as Type: "FLAC (FLAC Lossless Audio Codec)" [16-bit FLAC files appear as Type: "FLAC"] 5. disabling the libsndfile plugin and confirming that 24-bit FLAC files are no longer supported 6. burning an audio CD from 24-bit FLAC files then listening to the result, which sounded good 7. and just to make sure: $ strings /usr/lib/libsndfile.so.1.0.17 | grep "FLAC (FLAC" FLAC (FLAC Lossless Audio Codec) $ NOTE... $ ldd /usr/lib/libsndfile.so.1.0.17 linux-gate.so.1 => (0xb7fd9000) libFLAC.so.8 => /usr/lib/libFLAC.so.8 (0x4f826000) libogg.so.0 => /usr/lib/libogg.so.0 (0x410df000) libm.so.6 => /lib/i686/cmov/libm.so.6 (0x4e0e7000) libc.so.6 => /lib/i686/cmov/libc.so.6 (0x4df8a000) /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x80000000) $ ...so, it may still be a K3b FLAC plugin bug and this is just a workaround if libsndfile doesn't do anything special with 24-bit FLAC files. It would be interesting to know if Sebastian Trueg sees "FLAC" or "FLAC (FLAC Lossless Audio Codec)" as the Type in K3b; if he sees "FLAC" then there is likely a problem with Debian's flac, if they are being processed by libsndfile and it does not do anything special then it could be a K3b FLAC plugin or flac problem. I should also mention that my build included the ffmpeg decoder (-dev files from www.debian-multimedia.org) and lame encoder plugins, and I needed to install over two dozen new packages by the time I finished satisfying all the dependencies (I can now drop .wma files into an audio CD project and bug #498767, "Dragging files to audiocd dialog crashes K3b", has magically disappeared [which was the reason I was building K3b myself])--so there is the possibility that something else is having an effect.
