Some music players are unable to read CUE files. A solution to this can be to split single lossless audio files into multiple FLAC or MP3 files. Split Lossless is an open source Nautilus script to split lossless audio files (APE, FLAC, WAVPACK) by CUE to FLAC and MP3 (320kbps or 192kbps) formats. It automatically adds tags to the split files, however, you can also manually edit tags for artist, album, date and genre. Using Split Lossless, you can also trash input files after conversion, and receive bubble message notifications after the process is complete.

You can install Split Lossless Nautilus script using the following commands, which includes the developer’s (CokiDVD) PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cokicd/split-lossless
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install split-lossless 

Once installed, right-click a single lossless audio file and select Scripts -> Split Lossless.

In the window that pops-up, select a format from the drop down menu, i.e., MP3 (320kbps or 192kbps CBR, and VBR~245kbps) or FLAC. If you do not wish to use the default tags (which Split Lossless automatically detects), then click Edit Info and enter your desired tags.

A NotifyOSD message is displayed below the app-indicator menu when the splitting process is complete.
