To Steve: You were so kind as to help me with a problem with using Audacity for transferring music from audio cassettes to compact discs several weeks ago. I looked for our correspondence and could not find it. If you can locate our exchange, I would so appreciate your send your replies to my g-mail account [Email address removed by moderator], if you can, since they contained really valuable information for me which I may need again in the future. In the meantime, my computer crashed last week-end, so that I am having to reload programs such as Audacity back on to it. I believe that I have downloaded it from the internet, but am uncertain where to go from there. I have attached the files that appear as part of the download–could you advise as to which ones I need to activate to be able to use Audacity again? Thank you again for your patience and your help. Tommy Richardson I tried adding the list of files from Audacity, but was told the file size was too large; however, you probably do not need it, since you work for Audacity. I am just not sure how to begin using it.
Unfortunately as a free application we don’t have the resources to provide one-to-one support by private e-mail.

Please note that none of the Audacity Forum staff use Zorin. I would suggest you visit http://zorinos.com/faq.html and look at the FAQ “How do I install software for Zorin OS?”. In that FAQ, click the blue text for more information. Zorin is apparently based on Ubuntu, so I assume Audacity is in the Zorin “Software Centre” and so the easiest way to install Audacity would be to install it from there.
This may not give you a recent Audacity version, but if you want a recent version it gets more complicated. I would stick with the “Software Centre” if I were you.
