Audacity 3.0.3 AppImage Problems

Hi all,

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:

/path/to/The.AppImage --appimage-extract

(An AppImage is essentially just a SquashFS image).

All good, until I try to run it.

./bin/audacity: ./lib/audacity/ version GLIBC_2.27' not found (required by ./bin/audacity) ./bin/audacity: ./lib/audacity/ version GLIBC_2.25’ not found (required by ./bin/audacity)
./bin/audacity: ./lib/audacity/ version GLIBC_2.25' not found (required by ./lib/audacity/ ./bin/audacity: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version CXXABI_1.3.11’ not found (required by ./lib/audacity/
./bin/audacity: ./lib/audacity/ version `GLIBC_2.25’ not found (required by ./lib/audacity/

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.

Any ideas?

Permissions have been set.

Audacity 3.0.3 works fine for me on Debian 10.10 (the current release version).

The AppImage or did you compile from source?


Thanks, exactly same link I used.
Very strange, still complains about the missing files, even though they exist.

After some googling, AppImage problems seem to be quite common
and and especially so.

So calling it a day and sticking with 2.3.1 on Mac and 2.1.3 on Linux.
