Audacity can't open in Endless OS

Post by buga123 » Fri Nov 02, 2018 11:09 am

Hello. I use endless os in my Acer Aspire 3 laptop, I can't open it while I install it. I use Endless os 3.4.8.

When I launch it the terminal say: audacity: error while loading shared libraries: libmp3lame.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I need help how to fix it.because Audacity is important software for me.

libmp3lame.so.0 is the optional LAME library and is not part of the Audacity application. It is only required if you want to export from Audacity in MP3 format.

I think you will need to ask Endless OS support about this. We don't make binaries (executable files) for Linux, and Endless OS installs programs in an unusual way that I am completely unfamiliar with.

If you do manage to get it going, please do write back and let us know what the solution was.
Also, if you need help "using" Audacity (once you have a working version), then we probably can help with those kind of questions.

I can try, but I'm not sure how much I can help because if Audacity does not launch at all, then that is most likely a problem with the build (the Endless OS App package) rather than with Audacity itself.

What happens if you open a Terminal window and enter the following:

Code: Select all

./audacity
