View Full Version : [ubuntu] Audacity Problems

December 30th, 2008, 11:20 PM

This is my first post here! Im loving ubuntu...

I have difficulty making audacity to work.....

Does anyone have any experience with this?

On the Playback setting I have many ALSA settings and only one OSS setting, on the Recording Setting I only have one ALSA and one OSS.

I have tried various connections and have basically made little progress...any tips?

Ubuntu version? Audacity version?

If ur unable to hear sound, pls go to Edit-->Preferences-->Audio IO. Usually ALSA default for the Device for Playback works, but try other settings.

If ur trying to edit proprietary audio like mp3 etc, GStreamer codec must me installed. Also MP3 LAME library must be installed for export to mp3.

Pls elaborate the issue.

I am still having difficulty - cant figure out why...i think i need to keep playing with it to see what is the correct combination.
