How to record an SPX file?

This seems like it should be simple, but I've already spent half the day on it. :roll:

I tried gnome-sound-recorder, but it lacked a "pause" feature. If the phone rings while making a recording, there's nothing you can do except end the recording and begin a part 2 later on.

Audacity still can't export in SPX.

How do I create an SPX file?

Thanks,
Bob

Sounds like you want the Gnac application. http://www.addictivetips.com/ubuntu-lin ... nac-linux/

Hmm, can't seem to add the PPA.

Code: Select all

bob@lmde ~ $ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:gnac-team/ppa
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/apt-add-repository", line 65, in <module>
    if not sp.add_source_from_line(line):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 630, in add_source_from_line
    (deb_line, file) = expand_ppa_line(line.strip(), self.distro.codename)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/softwareproperties/ppa.py", line 47, in expand_ppa_line
    sourceslistd = apt_pkg.Config.find_dir("Dir::Etc::sourceparts")
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'Config'
Any suggestions? Thanks!

p.s. I'm using LMDE/Gnome/Latest if that matters.

Moved here by moderator

LMDE (and Debian) doesn't support PPAs. You will have to look for an alternative way to install Gnac. Perhaps the homepage has pointers on this: http://gnac.sourceforge.net/

You can always choose another recorder program

  • That's usually my first looksee when something isn't quite working..
And there are choices for conversion programs as well..
