Audicity recording botton block all computer

Im using Ubuntu 12.04 and was using Audacity 2.0.0
wery fine recording and all

did get to my self external audio card alesis iO4 that works Cubase LE5
cont run in on my Linux so did continue to work in Audacitey

something strange happend (no mic detected- and if it is so…was recording me 2 sec- and then would block)
somehow did fix that- sometimes could record sometimes not
until now when
after giving comand record- my cursor block on rec botton
and computer have to be turnd off violently

did knew I did not fix my problem before- becouse- no resnebel explanation why sometimes Audacity records for 1 or 10 seconds external card mic- and then stop- and warns you on shifted time…you shuld fix- by CTRL T - but you cont do that- or no reaction on comand

did try all tips and tricks

now Im on 2.0.5
and my ploblem is even bigger

ok if audacety do not wont to detect my external audio card mic…that is on USB port- o man was so happy to get that equipmant working properly
but- if does blocking on internal mic- makes big problem to me

and pleas escuse my gramar or speling mistakes

Thanks in addvance

That’s a rather old version.

And that is a very new version. Where did you get it and how did you install it?

If you are still on Ubuntu 12.04 you may do better to go back to the Ubuntu repository version of Audacity.

Ubuntu repository version of Audacity.

did instal


so was automaticly 2.0.5

whot should i done?

or what would be repository version?
