Hello together,

pamac shows me only the version

audacity-2

Thanks and regards

audacity package is inherited from arch linux … Dave will, probably, take care of it soon.

Well, it depends. It was flagged out-of-date on 2020-06-27 …

AUR (en) - audacity-git
Arch Linux - audacity 1:2.4.1-4 (x86_64)


EDIT: Corrected link

But we are talking about an official package here, isn’t it? Also usually AUR’s git packages can’t be out-of-date by definition…

Actually it is the official package that is flagged out of date since 2020.

I guess with the link Phil meant to say that there is a git package in the AUR in case you’d want to install the latest version…

Yes, I would prefer audacity as an official package. I try to install V3.02 from AUR.

Thanks for your support :+1:

Ok. That’s make more sense :smiley:

I tried to install audacity-wxgtk2 3.0.2-1 from AUR with pamac, but the installation dosent work.

Now I installed " audacity-alien 3.0.2-1" from AUR with pamac and it works fine:

audacity-3

Maybe we should try the PKGBUILD from KaOS …

Unless they fail to build, which was the case until minutes ago

I have copied the flag that I was missing from KaOS pkgbuild, while also enabling to build against Gtk3 instead of Gtk2 Update audacity-git · FabioLolix/PKGBUILD-AUR_fix@56c2ddd · GitHub

2 more options are Snap and Flatpak:

Snap: Install Audacity for Linux using the Snap Store | Snapcraft

Flatpak: Flathub—An app store and build service for Linux

Arch repo not getting updated due to upstream build issues apparently…

audacity is stuck on 2.4.1 for months now, due to upstream build issues
