The latest version of Audacity is marked as being "beta", yet that's the
version that is in the Ubuntu repositories.
This beta version does not work on my system. Any attempt to play back
audio using any audio device says "Audio device can not be found".
I uninstalled it and got the last stable version off the Audacity web
site, and that seems to work fine.
But now the update manager keeps telling me to upgrade to the beta.
I'm a little confused. I thought the repositories only had stable
I don't think I'm the only one having troubles with the latest Audacity
in Ubuntu. Some Google searching has come up with many people reporting
Did Ubuntu or Audacity make some change that makes the latest version
incompatible? Can it be fixed?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
