http://packman.links2linux.org/package/286 installed it
and have edited a few songs thru it and it seems to be working. [as in it puts the .mp3 extension on the edited song. I don't know what 'bugs' were in 2.1.0 but they don't seem to be effecting my work yet. So as much as I would like to carryon solving this problem, I think I will leave it here and get some work done. I will keep my eyes open for any file name discrepancies or files that don't show in the selection window. and post back here.
openSUSE Leap 42.2 64-bit, KDE Plasma 5.8.3, Audacity 2.1.2 installed thru Yast
Here I am starting a post as suggested from my other post: http://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=95221&p=324160#p324160
It isn't known about. And I don't see it here: https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/buglist.c ... h=audacity.
Do the files that are missing or mis-spelt always contain accented characters or symbols?
3 part issue with File>Import>Audio
Sometimes when I try to import a song [File>Import>Audio] and the import selection window opens I cannot find the file I am looking for.
I can see it in my file manager[Dolphin], but not in the Import selection window. [It is in my files in the correct folder]
My only means of getting the file into audacity is to drag & drop, whereas I usually do the File>Import>Audio method.
Being a creature of habit I like to do things using the same method.
At times the file names I see in the import selection window do not look the same as in the file manager[Dolphin], sometimes they are mis-spelled or add extra letters where they are not this way in the file manager. Characters/Symbols I commonly use in my file naming are ( - , & [ ] )
[e.g.] Amber Digby - Heart, I am ashamed of you 007-.mp3 would Look like Aamber Digby - Heart, I am ashamed of you 007-.mp3
There were other but I didn't write them down.
I guess this [Part 2] could be caused by Characters/Symbols in the file name, but [Part1] the file simply isn't listed.
This may not be anything but different sorting order, but the file names in Audacity aren't always sorted the same as in Dolphin file manager.
File>Import>Audio is on the left.
Bennys come before Bens
Dolphin file manager is on the right.
