Exporting to mp3

Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon 64 bit, Audacity 2.2.1 downloaded via software manager

I made a recording using Audacity. When trying to export as an mp3 I get “Unable to open target file for writing”. Does anyone have any "why’s?


Probably because you are trying to write a file to a location where you don’t have write permissions. (See: File-system permissions - Wikipedia)
