View Full Version : [SOLVED] Audacity-freeworld fails to launch as user in Fedora 22

Edit: I found a bugzilla report which suggested that I remove the .audacity-data folder and contents. That worked and now it launches as user again. I have marked this thread as solved.



I wanted to record some audio, so I clicked on my icon for Audacity, which is audacity-freeworld from rpmfusion. It won't launch. :dis: I checked, and it is indeed installed as well as the documentation. I tried the command line with a similar failure to launch. Finally, I tried from a root command line and got the following:

Audacity did finally launch, but I can't seem to get it to record anything, even though pavucontrol shows that the microphone is active. I already tried reinstalling Audacity as well as uninstalling and then installing it again. Nothing I have tried so far has worked.

:confused: What is going on? How do I solve this so I can use Audacity again? I'm off to check bugzilla after we run some errands.
