I am having a hard time getting Audacity to work on Silverblue (31 and 32). I’ve tried
- Flatpak Audacity from Flathub
- Flatpak Audacity from Fedora
- rpm-ostree install Audacity
Fedora Audacity does not list Pulse as an available playback device. Trying to play audio results in a “Error opening sound device” message, but the program does not crash.
Flathub Audacity lists Pulse as as an available playback device but plays audio so fast it sounds like clicks. Audacity then crashes after the audio is paused or playback stops.
The only permissions difference I see is device=all for Fedora flatpak.
Layered Audacity lists pulse as an available playback device and plays audio correctly, but the position indicator does not update which make editing difficult.
