I installed Audacity through the usual apt-get repos in Ubuntu 17.10. But when I run it I get the error below. So I tried installing from the community repo on the forum and I get the exact same error when trying to launch Audacity.
It seems that it is looking for libwebpmux2 but Artful now only has libwebpmux3 in its repos.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I notice on my machine ('buntu 16.04) there is a symlink from libwebpmux.so.1 to libwebpmux.so.1.0.2 (both in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu).
Making a symlink from libwebpmux.so.1.0.2 to whatever version you actually have may work.
