Installation packages for Audacity on GNU/Linux and other Unix-like systems are provided by individual distributions. The following distributions maintain regularly updated Audacity packages:
- SuSE/Open SUSE
- Ubuntu release packages. Note: Ubuntu 2.0.6 releases are built against an incorrect version of wxWidgets.
- Audacity 2.1.0 release PPA package for Ubuntu 12.04, 14.04, 14.10, 15.04 and 15.10 (also Linux Mint 13 and 17). This is built against the correct wx2.8.12. Uninstall any packaged version of Audacity before installing the PPA.
- rpmseek for legacy Audacity packages.
Otherwise, we recommend either searching the web pages of your distribution for the latest information, or compiling Audacity yourself from source code.
