    Hi Community:

    I upgraded to 20.04.

    How do I install audio-recorder? I can find it at . However, I don't know how to find it with synaptic.

    Thanks,

    Re: audio-recorder

    Maybe not interested in a PPA addition, so go here: https://launchpad.net/~audio-recorde.../ppa/+packages
    Under " audio-recorder - 3.1.3~focal" click the dropdown.
    Next download the "audio-recorder_3.1.3~focal_amd64.deb " and install it.
    Code:
    cd /to/donwloaded/.deb
    Personally, I prefer gdebi over the software center for installing deb files. It is a lightweight application so the installation seems quicker
    install "suggestion" dpkg command
    Code:
     sudo dpkg -i path_to_deb_file
    If you want to use the apt command for deb files, use it like this:
    Code:
    sudo apt install path_to_deb_file
    If you get a dependency error while installing the deb packages, you can use the following command to fix it:
    Code:
    sudo apt install -f
    Good Luck Old Jimma I aslo included a screen shot to help if needed
    If you followed this you won't receive automatic updates as you would with the PPA.

    OK, I don't know what you want to do with the recorder, but note that sox offers two utilities called play and rec, which make recording and playback from the command line very easy indeed.

    Re: audio-recorder

    Thanks to fallen1 and HermanAB for their replies!!

    I had luck with fallen1's suggestion of downloading the deb file and using
    sudo dpkg -i path_to_deb_file
    Fallen1, will the amd version work with a computer with intel architecture? I have one of those that is being repaired now and will want to install audo-recorder on it.

    Thanks!

    Yes, it will. The 64 bit extension to the x86 architecture is called amd64 because both Intel and AMD had different ways of expanding x86. The Intel way of doing this (Itanium) failed in the market, so most x86 processors available today - even those made by Intel - use the extensions by AMD. I think you would know about it if you had a system based around an Itanium processor, those are very unusual and AFAIK only ever used in servers.
