Excellent :)

Now perhaps you can help me and other Linux users of Audacity, and at the same time we can tidy up the breakage that we have just created.

What we've done to get Audacity working, is to remove amsynth_dssi.so from your system, so in the process we have broken amsynth.
Do you recall installing amsynth?
Did you particularly want amsynth?

Which package manager(s) are you comfortable using? How do you usually install software?

I've installed the repository version of amsynth for Xubuntu 16.04, and I don't see the problem :? so I'm trying to determine where exactly your file "amsynth_dssi.so" came from, and which version it is.

Rename the file from "/usr/lib/dssi/amsynth_dssi.so.bak" back to its original name "/usr/lib/dssi/amsynth_dssi.so", (log out and back in to ensure that the system can see it) then try these two commands in a Terminal:

Code: Select all
amsynth -v

Code: Select all
which amsynth


For reference, I get "amsynth 1.5.1 -- compiled Aug 11 2015 06:35:16" for the first command, and "/usr/bin/amsynth" for the second.

now it seems working but I have not yet recorded anything.
On my station there are a Midi-Usb 49 keys keyboard and a cheap microphone (inputs).

That'll do.
I'm guessing that "kxs" refers to kxstudio

In a Terminal window, enter:
Code: Select all
echo | cat /etc/apt/sources.list > ~/sources.txt

This will create a file called "sources.txt" in your home directory. Please attach that file to your reply.

After you have uploaded an image file, there's a button that says "Place Inline". When you click that, it inserts the image at the cursor position in the message composing box.

It looks like this in the message composing box:
Code: Select all
[attachment=0]name-of-image-file[/attachment]


and when you post (or Preview) the post, you will see the image.
