I was very excited to see ver 3.0.3 available as an AppImage, despite the jack and ffmpeg
problems, thought I would give it a try.
Debian 9 (64 bit).
It turns out that the Appimage is dependent on FUSE, which my distro has a problem with.
No problem (so I thought), will just extract the AppImage with:
(An AppImage is essentially just a SquashFS image).
All good, until I try to run it.

Why bother creating an AppImage or flatpack or anything else that does not contain
every file needed, kind of defeats the object.
It’s not like those files are 100’s of MB’s.
Anyways, be it as it may, found them on my system and copied them to /lib/audacity.
Still refuses to see them.
