Install the Audacity 2.0.4 alpha overnite build on
Slacko 5.5 Precise or Raring distros .


devx file must be loaded for alien2puppy script to fully work ie stripping
alien2puppy script installed in executable path

Make sure that there's lots of room in /root (maybe 150MB free at least)
Put the following in a folder...

from https://launchpad.net/~audacity-team/+archive/daily


CD inside the folder full of debian packages and type in terminal

alien2puppy -p audacity-april8-2.0.4

This creates the folder 'audacity-april8-2.0.4'
When the script stops to adjust the desktop icon,
you can make more changes ---> take libraries out of /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu
and put in /usr/lib .
I put in pinstall script as well(optional)
Proceed to make pet package.

Optional: Make a sfs (if you prefer)


alien2puppy -s audacity-april8-2.0.4


Here's the result of my work.....

Tested on Slacko 5.5, Precise, Precise NOP, Raring.
Doesn't work on Wheezy.

audacity-lib-0.1.pet 10MB

audacity-april8-2.0.4.pet 17MB

audacity-april8-2.0.4.sfs 17MB

Optional foreign language locales:
audacity NLS-2.0.4.pet

Some notes:

1) You must always load audacity-lib-0.1.pet first. It contains the
necessary libraries that I have stolen from other pet packages. Laughing

2) A bug in Audacity version 2 still remains Crying or Very sad
If you open preference window and then close it, the top window menu
is blank. The solution is to resize the audacity window (click the upper
right resize icon)

3) This version of audacity doesn't recognize sound cards very well,
at least it didn't recognize mine. Ubuntu uses pulseaudio driver. The solution
for me was to set the audio so that a sound file will play over the speakers
using 'retrovol'. Then audacity automatically used that setting.

I made pet package too quickly and left out Rox reference folder,
so right click menu item wouldn't launch the app.

I fixed this problem.

Also I made MIME for .aup file
so the file launches with a click. Cool

I put in right click for Thunor file manager if pet version
of package is installed(see image)
