Help for Audacity 2.x.x on GNU/Linux.

ImageThis forum is for Audacity 2.x.x on GNU/Linux.
Please state:
  • which version of Linux you are using,
  • the exact three-section version number of Audacity from Help menu > About Audacity,
  • whether you installed your distribution's release, PPA version, or compiled Audacity from source code.

Audacity 1.2.x and 1.3.x are obsolete and no longer supported. If you still have those versions, please upgrade (see 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.

2.2.0 bug

In ver 2.2.0 and previous versions, audacity will crash when I use shift-right arrow to move the cursor while playing.
It only happens when I hold those keys down for quick movement through a large file. Single hits will work normally.

I use linux arch (xfce4).

Are you using PulseAudio for playback?
Try selecting the appropriate "hw" option in the device toolbar as the playback device.

I do use pulseaudio. It plays ok. Pressing shift-right arrow works if pressed once, but crashes if I do multiple shift-right too quickly.

additional info:
When run from a terminal I get the error:
audacity: src/hostapi/alsa/pa_linux_alsa.c:3641: PaAlsaStreamComponent_BeginPolling: Assertion `ret == self->nfds' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

Also, if I change the output stream, I get no audio, but the crash doesn't happen.

I get the same crash message using Audacity 2.2 on PCLinuxOS but only when recording with software playthrough of input set to on (Preferences, Record Tab). I've got separate installations, with and without pulse audio, and the same thing happens in both cases. I found this forum when I put the error message into a Google Search.
