That looks normal.

You did not tell us where you got Audacity from. If you built it yourself you may not have built it correctly.

I would shut down all other applications that are using your sound card. Open System Monitor and shut down any audio daemons that may be running. Then Audacity should be able to use the sound card.

Or backup your data to a USB drive or similar and reinstall Ubuntu into a fresh partition on your computer. You said it was a fresh installation, but I can tell you that a few people have had messed up audio in 16.04 when they upgraded directly over a previous Ubuntu version. Ubuntu no longer recommend overwrite installations.

@gale I SAID it's pure installation. Again, after shutting all apps that might using audio nothing changed. Should i reinstall it? I'm using apt package manager to install it.
Also I'm using cinnamon 3.0.

Theres a warning
(audacity:16023): IBUS-WARNING **: Unable to connect to ibus: Could not connect: Connection refused

It's up to you if you reinstall Audacity. I doubt it will make any difference, from your description. "Something" is preventing Audacity accessing any devices so you need to find what that something is.

If you do reinstall the 2.1.2 package supplied by Ubuntu, first delete the ~/.audacity-data/ folder so that the new installation has clean settings.

If there is a glitch in the 2.1.2 package supplied by Ubuntu, remove it and try the 2.1.2 Ubuntu Handbook PPA instead: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntuhandbook1/+archive/ubuntu/audacity.

The IBUS-WARNING is "normal". IBus a multi-lingual input method not related to audio.

Reinstalling after removing this repo didn't change nothing.

Exactly what did you reinstall? You could uninstall the Ubuntu 2.1.2 repo version and install the 2.1.2 Ubuntu Handbook version.

You could open a terminal, type:
Code: Select all
aplay -l

hit ENTER and post what that says. See aplay man page.

You may be better asking on the Ubuntu forums. There is a reason Audacity sees no devices. There may be a sound daemon we don't know about which you enabled by accident.

What version of Audacity did you reinstall, exactly?

You have playback devices.

And
Code: Select all
arecord -l

should show you recording devices.

If Audacity still does not see those devices, type this in a terminal and hit ENTER
Code: Select all
ps -A > ps.txt

This saves a list of your running processes to the file "ps.txt" in the folder the command prompt was at.

Post the file "ps.txt" on the Ubuntu forums and ask if any of those processes would prevent pulse accessing the sound device.

I found this old thread when trying to find solution to my problem which seems to be the same as
"dracconi";s. All the details are the same on my set up too.
Is there any further info in this matter?
