I've been experimenting ---> trying to get audacity 2.0.3 and 2.0.4beta
to work in puppy. Note that these are very big pet packages.
You need 3x the size of package available in free space to install!!

Here's the method I've devised.
First install a package full of necessary libraries
This first step is very important!! Then install the audacity2.0.3
pet (or SFS). The order of the installation is very important, since the
operating system must be fooled. Apparently Ubuntu installs libraries in
different locations than Puppy linux.

Note on method:
audacity-lib-0.1.pet was made from libraries stolen from other pet packages.
I made audacity-2.0.3.pet package from downloaded
debian packages and assembled with alien2puppy script.

Tested on Slacko 5.5, Precise, Precise NOP, Raring.
Doesn't work on Wheezy or Carolina because they
have older glib.

audacity-lib-0.1.pet 10MB

audacity-2.0.3.pet 18MB

audacity-2.0.3.sfs 18MB

Optional foreign language locales:
audacity NLS-2.0.3.pet

Some notes:

1) 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)

2) 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.

Improvements to pet package:

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)

Thank you for this - I have just installed Audacity in Slacko 5.6 without any problems whatsoever, and sound playback seems OK on the default settings.
