Audacity quit unexpectedly

Help for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X.

ImageThis forum is for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X 10.4 and later.
Please state which version of macOS you are using,
and the exact three-section version number of Audacity from "Audacity menu > About Audacity".


Audacity 1.2.x and 1.3.x are obsolete and no longer supported. If you still have those versions, please upgrade at https://www.audacityteam.org/download/.
The old forums for those versions are now closed, but you can still read the archives of the 1.2.x and 1.3.x forums.

yes, that was exactly what happened. The system runs quite good actually, the only thing going on is that some applications do not run. A lot of them are (by coincidence?) open source applications from Sourceforge, but some are also by Apple itself, like Xcode.

oops, that will the end of an era then.
I have a regular Mac, but what frustrates me is that lack of freedom to choose your own hardware (which is needed for a studio computer) and also the price. I get that they want to offer the best stability and they succeed in doing so if you compare to Windows, but it's policy is limiting.

This is maybe interesting: when I launch Audacity from a terminal (after having deleted everything Audacity related), I get:

iMac:MacOS bcnx$ ./Audacity
18:35:29: Error: Impossible to get permissions for file '/Users/bcnx/Library/Application Support/audacity.cfg' (error 2: No such file or directory)
18:35:29: Error: Impossible to get permissions for file '/Users/bcnx/Library/Application Support/pluginregistry.cfg' (error 2: No such file or directory)

Hi,

for posterity: I installed Audacity by means of Macports. This is the 2.2.0 version, but at least it works!
