Problem installing 3.3

Hello everyone. I recently switched over to Ubuntu Mate and I’m very pleased. However, I’m having trouble getting the latest version of Audacity to install on my system.

The software boutique only has the old version. Same thing with synaptic package manager.

The other software installer called ‘Software’ lists the right version (3.3) of Audacity in the package description, but when I actually downloaded and installed it, it turns out that it was STILL the old version. How does this happen? I always thought that the newest available version of any program would show up as long as you keep repositories up-to-date.

The Audacity 3.3 Appimage works, but I’m trying to install Audacity into the file system so that I can manipulate the plugins and custom theme files.

Can anyone help with this? Thank you!

Windows guy here. Did you get the 3.3(.3) splash screen? Or did you use Help > About.

I say that because when you start Audacity it check to see if another copy of Audacity is already running and if so, wakes that up.

You might try uninstalling all previous versions of Audacity before installing a new one.
