Audacity i486

Post#1 by Jack » 18 Aug 2015, 18:31

Well I use USM for the first time to install a program. Here is my question. Can these error be fix or not?

I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

What audio output do you want to use?

I manages after manual work to get alsa and HDMI to run, but that was some 2.x version or Port.

Now, with 3.1 or 3.11 I was NOT able to get it running at all, even when using the same ports as previous, even when trying all available ports I get no sound via HDMI.

But the "jack" error sounds like you also need the jack audio frame work. Do you have that installed / the jack and dependencies module(s) installed as well?
Cheers!

Hi all
pure xfce-3.1-32bit (+ nvidia Driver)
I use the audacity modules from
viewtopic.php?f=51&t=4045&p=29131
(you need all 3)
and afaics it works
I didn't test much, but I have sound and playback wav, mp3, ogg,
also converting wav -> mp3 works.
All settings in audacity are the defaults.

When I start audacity from terminal I get these messages:

Code: Select all

I like to use alsa if it will.

Try it with ASLA only, please. Jack is not just an alternative to ALSA, it is a sound server/client system and much more complex than ALSA.

Well, mp3 is more to handle, if it can read and handle mp3 most probably it also can handle wav. (Depending on filetype, not all wav are just plain audio-cd files, could be highly compressed voice recording as well)

Try to get a wav and ogg online, at least ogg files you find on wikipedia. Wav files are to be found where the specialist talk about more complex sound software than audacity, e.g. drum or synthesiser programs.

I use FLAC music files most of time. I just had a MP3 close by.

Please post the heads up when you checked out FLAC files, and all the converting and stuff you want to do top them.

So that we - and all the lurkers as well - know it works fine now. :)

I'm Playing Hey Jude is a 162.3mb FLAC file. And it is playing great. It was recorded at 96000Hz and 24bit stereo. I would like to post a screen shot but I don't know how.

EDIT the link to it

If you run XFCe, then search for "Screenshot" in its start menu. :)
