Re: Audacity in XFCE 19.3.

I realize it's a bit late for this, but I just found this: https://www.audacityteam.org/download/linux/ Adding the PPA they mention will give you a newer of version of Audacity than what's in the repo's. I found that while searching for an Appimage of Audacity. Thank you MrEen. I tried the PPA opti...

Re: Audacity in XFCE 19.3 Solved but needs work.

I tried completely removing Audacity, reinstalling it, deleting the lock file...but it still is a mess. My solution was to flash back the image I had taken of Mint xfce 19.1. This tool box allows me to launch Audacity without issue and do everything else I need. Thanks to all for being patient and f...

Re: Audacity in XFCE 19.3 Solved but needs work.

This morning I brought my machine out of suspend to discover that Audacity would again not launch. Sure enough the /var/tmp/audacity-richard/ had the lock file present (plus one other). Deleting them enabled Audacity to launch. I'll monitor that for a while as I'm pretty sure that I correctly shut d...

Re: Audacity in XFCE 19.3 Solved but needs work.

One thing that you might want to do at this point is check for and fix any home folder permissions issues. I don't know why the audacity.cfg was so truncated, but possibly running commands with sudo where they didn't belong could have created this mess. You can find and fix the issues all in one go...

Re: Audacity in XFCE 19.3

If your problem was solved it is because you did what suggested the link I send you. You removed the locked folder /var/tmp/audacity-richard/ and you had the correct configuration file .audacity-data/audacity.cfg. The valgrind is not a fixing tool! It was a joint effort for which I thank you. You s...

Re: Audacity in XFCE 19.3

Removing the lock file did not result in restart of the valgrind process. I then re-ran valgrind from the terminal. This is the tail of the very long report: ==18206== ==18206== Conditional jump or move depends on uninitialised value(s) ==18206== at 0xD203426: __wmemchr_sse2 (memchr.S:293) ==18206==...

Please can you post all your commands inside the code tags by selecting the button </>. It will look like the commands I posted.
the button </> is the one that says "select all" no?

I ran the commands you posted in a terminal and you have the output.

I believe that I did what you asked. I ran the two commands from within the terminal, and posted the output.

Have I missed something?
