Since upgrading to *buntu 16.04 I am unable to run Audacity:
audacity: error while loading shared libraries: libavcodec.so.54: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I can’t install that version of libavcodec:
$ sudo apt-get install libavcodec54 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package libavcodec54 is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'libavcodec54' has no installation candidate
LibAV is installed:
$ sudo apt-get install libav-tools Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done libav-tools is already the newest version (7:2.8.11-0ubuntu0.16.04.1). libav-tools set to manually installed. 0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 0 not to upgrade.
I have tried purging and re-installing Audacity to no avail. Any ideas?
