Re: Audio notch filter for Linux Mint.

Got it Flemur, thanks. Hey Wompoo, You could also check out some ham radio applications for audio and notch filters. You can find some DSP apps (digital signal processing) that may br tailorable to your needs. Downside--these are mostly written for Windows though. Thanks all. I don't know where to ...

You have to have a file open an part or all of it selected.
There's an actual notch filter under Effects -> Plugins 1-15 -> notch filter; although Effects -> Equalization is probably better.
Thanks for the reply Flemur.
I will try using a mp4 file.

More later............

I think you can do this with Audacity.

Thanks All.
I will look for it.

Edit: Found it. However, the equalization option is greyed out.
I might not have all the add-ons installed?

Re: Workaround

Meanwhile, I have found a workaround. I merely change the destination folder from /opt to my downloads folder. That's the first mention you made of /opt, which is a system directory owned by root and not writable by regular users ( ls -al /opt ) so it's not for non-OS files; your "work around" is a...

Workaround

Meanwhile, I have found a workaround.
I merely change the destination folder from /opt to my downloads folder. Then I can move the file to somewhere else.

That's a different error message: "Please check the permissions" which occurs for some files missing an extension; here the given error message is "Permission Denied".
Thanks for that clarification Flemur.
