Linux Mint 16

I’m not sure what’s going on tried more then once to install and run Audacity This is what I’m getting

audacity: error while loading shared libraries: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32

I’ve tried everything including purge and re-install

Please note that Audacity Team does not supply Audacity packages for Linux distributions.

Is this your question ? If not, others have the same problem.

The error indicates that 64-bit libraries are expected. Audacity builds as I understand it should be 64-bit on a 64-bit Linux system. Do you have a 64-bit computer, and did you install a 64-bit version of Linux Mint?

If you think this a Linux Mint bug and get no answer on their forums you should report it here: .

You could also try compiling Audacity yourself with the libid3tag libraries that ship with Audacity:

./configure --with-libid3tag=local

It should be fairly simple to compile Audacity on Linux Mint. See: .
