Launch Audacity from your normal log-in account, then look in "Help > Diagnostics > Show Log". Anything in there related to the module?

Hello,
I have a quite similar issue. I have mod-script-pipe recognized in Preferences > Modules, and enabled, but it doesn't seem to be loaded. The pipes are not created. Though it worked the first time after installation, it did not work anymore after the computer restarts.

Do you have an idea of what is going on ? :?:

Are you looking in "/tmp"?
On Linux, if mod-script-pipe is enabled (as can be seen in "Edit > Preferences > Modules", but only after restarting Audacity), then you should see two files in "/tmp":
Code: Select all
/tmp/audacity_script_pipe.from.1000
/tmp/audacity_script_pipe.to.1000

The number at the end may be different (that depends on the logged-in user ID).

Yes, that is where I look for the pipes. I have this issue on two computers (Ubuntu & Linux Mint). No specific message related to mod-script-pipe in the logs. If I choose 'ask' for the module nothing shows up when Audacity starts.

Ixnay, If you launch Audacity and then open the Preference page for modules, does it say that the module "mod-script-pipe" is "Enabled"?

Yes, it does. (if I choose "Ask", then if I start again I can read "Ask" in the preferences but actually it asks for nothing)

Oh I got the thing... It's a problem of PATH too, it does not find the module but as the first time I started audacity from the installation folder, he found it the first time and saved it in the preferences. It works again when I start audacity from the installation folder. But now I fall into the same issue as the author of the thread...

"Modules" and "Plug-ins" are different. "Plug-ins" have to go in the plug-ins path, and "modules" have to go in the modules path.
If Audacity is properly installed at:
Code: Select all
/usr/local/share/audacity

then Audacity should be able to find files that are in:
Code: Select all
/usr/local/share/audacity/modules/<name-of-module>.so

However, I would recommend putting the module into:
Code: Select all
~/.audacity-files/modules/<name-of-module>.so

as this is a "per user" installation and is independent of the installation path of Audacity.
