Windows 10 home, Audacity 2.1.2, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
First problem I had was when I downloaded Audacity from the site. I tried to run the installer for the file type “AppImage” but got the message “Archive type not supported”. I then did a CLI to install and v. 2.1.2 downloaded and installed ok. Then I noted that under “Effect” it shows the option for “equalization” [not the newer curve type] which I guess is due to using 2.1.2, it being an earlier version. But, almost all of the options under “effect” are greyed out, including “equalization”.
My questions are:
How do I get the latest version - 3.1.3 - installed?
If I cannot install v. 3.1.3 on Ubuntu 16.04, how do I get they equalizer and other greyed out option to function?
Moderator note: no need to shout. I resized this to normal size.
