On my machine (I7 Intel, 16 GB RAM, Nvidia GTX 950) with Xubuntu 16.04 LTS, Audacity this mornig doesn't work and has created a zip debug file (that I allow to this post).
I need help for this. Please read the file zip and contact me.
Thanks and regards.

When did it last work?
Have you installed any LV2 effects since then? (or any other effects or media software)

I don't remember when I used Audacity, sorry. Have you read the zip debug file that I attached to my first post?
Thanks. I'm very new in Linux and I need assistance for doing things like configuration of the system and of the applications. I'm sure that in this Forum I'll find an answer for playing Audacity soon.

I'm not an expert with those debug logs, but it suggests to me that a bad LV2 plug-in is interfering with Audacity loading.

I don't know if this will work, but it is a simple thing to try:

Find the file "audacity.cfg" in "~/.audacity-data" (.audacity-data is a hidden folder in your home directory).
Replace that file with this one (this disables plug-in support, except for Nyquist plug-ins, in Audacity).
audacity.cfg.txt
(138 Bytes) Downloaded 12 times

Note that you will need to edit the name of this file from"audacity.cfg.txt" to "audacity.cfg"

Then try to launch Audacity.

I've changed the cfg file as you suggested and restart the pc. After the restart I have launched Audacity but the window of creating the debug report appears. In the attached zip debug file there are the results. It still doesn't work.

Could you try launching Audacity from the command line:

1) Open a terminal window
2) Enter the command:
Code: Select all
audacity

Copy and paste the output that appears in the terminal window into your reply.

Something else for you to try, and I'm quite hopeful that this will fix the problem:

Locate the file:
Code: Select all
/usr/lib/dssi/amsynth_dssi.so

and rename it:
Code: Select all
/usr/lib/dssi/amsynth_dssi.so.bak


Then log out and back in again.

OK, thanks. Audacity is crashing too early for that to tell us anything useful.

Please try the suggestion that I posted here: https://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopi ... 78#p333478

After renaming the file, log out and log in, I've launched Audacity via CLI:
