How to Install Audacity 2.4.2 in Ubuntu:

As the building system has changed, the PPA package (v2.4.1) does not fully work on Ubuntu. So it’s recommended to use Audacity Flatpak.

1.) If you’re first time installing a Flatpak package in Ubuntu, setup your system by running commands in terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T):

  • Install flatpak framework via command:
    sudo apt install flatpak

  • Add Flathub repository via command:
    flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo

2.) Then you can install Audacity flatpak package by running command:

flatpak install flathub org.audacityteam.Audacity

If you’ve previously installed it, run flatpak update org.audacityteam.Audacity command.

Uninstall Audacity flatpak:

To remove the flatpak package, simply run command in terminal:

flatpak uninstall org.audacityteam.Audacity
