Audacity doesn't launch

Operating System: Linux Mint 19
Kernel: Linux 4.15.0-99-generic
Architecture: x86-64

I have installed the official version from the linux mint repositories, and I’ve tried the PPA here:

they all result in the same error when starting:

audacity: relocation error: audacity: symbol _ZNK8wxWindow7IsShownEv version WXU_3.0 not defined in file with link time reference

I really don’t want to waste time trying to compile it from the source, when is this going to be fixed, or how can I get this working??

You’re asking the wrong people. We don’t run that PPA, we just provide the code. We understand that the PPA maintainer has had difficulty updating their automated systems for building Audacity after the change from AutoTools to Cmake.

Okay, I’ll send the PPA owners an email. I didn’t know if this was the appropriate spot to reach out or not, as the official ubuntu source even had a broken version.
