I’ using Netbeans to build the Audacity package from its makefile (another fine way is the kdevelop environment, as suggested me Steve in a previous post).
The project is built with success.
However, when i run the executable file from the netbeans environment i receive the message:
“It can not find a place to save the temporary files; Specify a folder that suits your preferences”.
Then a window appears that show the path “var/tmp” but the problem persists.
Please, can yo suggest me tips ?
The temporary directory should not be create automatically from the netbeans environment or not ? Maybe i need to specify it in the netbeans options ?
Thanks in advance.
What happens if you just double click on the Audacity executable?
Hi Steve !
If i use the command line to start Audacity all is right.
The problem happens when i try to launch Audacity from the run command inside the Netbeans environment (after building it, of course).
I apologize with you because I forgot to specify this particular in my question. I have done this test.
Please, help me. What happen for you ?
Thanks in advance
Audacity needs read / write access to its temp folder. By default this is a folder that Audacity creates in /var/tmp/
For example, if your user name is “vince”, then the temp folder will be, by default “/var/tmp/audacity-vince”
The location of the temp folder is set in “Edit > Preferences > Directories”.
If you require more help. I think you may need to ask on the NetBeans support channel as this appears to be more of a NetBeans problem.
I’m agree with you. What you wrote to me confirm what i understood. So I’m sure i’m not doing wrong.
Yes, I’ve just sent a question to the netbeans forum … however i’ve not a reply until at this moment. It seems a netbeans problem; however i’ve not found how to set the /var/tmp directory in the netbeans environment.
Please, can you tell me if Kdevelop by-pass this problem ?
I’ve not seen that problem in kdevelop.
i fixed the problem.
I launched netbeans as root. The /var/tmp directory has been created also with the right permission and Audacity starts fine lauching it inside the netbeans environment.
Thanks very much !!!
