Awesome! Installs no problem and no problem with sound either, which was a problem for me in the past. Great job.

Awesome!  Thank you so much kc1d1!!

Um... okay the beginner comes out here... I've got the tarball opened and the folder is sitting on my desktop.  How do I install it?  Do I need to open up a root terminal and do it on the command line?  Sorry but I've never installed a Linux download before.  I don't even know the first step.  :-[

The download link is for sources.  That isn't how you install the package.  Go ahead and delete what you downloaded :)

Go into gslapt, enable the testing directory by clicking Edit -> Preferences and clicking on the Sources tab (third from the left).  Testing is fifth from the top.  Just click on the box next to that listing.  Then click OK.  Then you have to click on the Update icon to add the testing repo to your package list.

Next, type audacity into the search box and hit enter.  Click on the box under status to select it for install.  Click on the Execute icon to actually install the package.

This is how you install ALL software in Vector Linux, BTW.

Last step:  Go back to sources and disable testing.  You don't want to do automated system upgrades with testing enabled.  That can cause breakage.

HTH,
Cait

I downloaded this package via gslapt

it installed and opens..and I can record but at the end of first playback the file freezes..I can drop the menu and exit but no current file functionality...attempted to alter settings but none of the typical stuff worked...not sure if it is hardware...the card is not an issue otherwise..thought it worth a mention as I have been waiting for audacity...OH..this is vl-lightb3...audacity is also installed to vl-std-gold and seemed to function with initial tests.

I only tested it against VL-6.0 Standard,  So not sure what may be missing in Light B3. try running it from a terminal and see if there are any error messages that give a clue as to what is going on.. I never could get Audacity to work on VL-5.9.
