MAC OS X 10.10.2
Used the .dmg installer
Even though this has been posted before, I’m not very technically savvy at code. I’ve tried entering people’s code responses from earlier resolved questions into terminal, but with no success. The error message, “Audacity is already running” says that “another copy of Audacity is running” even though I have restarted my computer multiple times, while having also removed and re-installed Audacity. I do know that after Audacity crashed and froze my computer, I was forced to shut down my computer. Since then, the error message has appeared every time. If someone would be kind enough to tell me in simpler terms what to look for in terminal and step by step solutions, that would be lovely. I appreciate any help on this matter. Thank you!
You’re welcome. By the way, “Safe Mode” that SHIFT puts you into also does the verification of the startup disk, plus some other actions like deleting old cached Kernel and system files: Use safe mode on your Mac – Apple Support (UK).
