A Free, Cross-Platform Digital Audio Editor

Edit Package audacity

Audacity is a program that manipulates digital audio wave forms. In
addition to recording sounds directly from within the program, it
imports many sound file formats, including WAV, AIFF, AU, IRCAM, MP,
and Ogg Vorbis. With Audacity, you can edit wave data larger than the
physical memory size of your computer.

Audacity Is Now A Possible Spyware, Remove It ASAP https://fosspost.org/audacity-is-now-a-spyware/

What About The Future of Audacity?

For the time being, you can use Audacity versions up to 3.0.2 guaranteeing that they have no network capabilities.

Further I disabled any update checking a long time ago

Version 3.0.3 is out! Maybe the package isn't updated because of privacy concerns? They updated their problematic policy to be better and by default, if you compile it, it compiles without telemetry.

It's requirement for Conan which appears to be a package manager will hold it up while I ask why it's there. Also any network connection will have to be disabled.

Dave Plater's avatar

Looks like audacity isn't going to be updated until the conan requirement is fixed. The fork tenacity is only on 3.0.3RC2 so far but if nothing is done by audacity-3.0.4 I'll create tenacity and send to Factory. https://github.com/audacity/audacity/issues/1522

3.0.4, heavily patched has an option to disable network access

3.1.3 is broken: error while loading shared libraries: lib-screen-geometry.so

Dave Plater's avatar

A work around is "sudo ldconfig -v /usr/lib64/audacity"

How to request a build/release of 3.3.2? It fixes critical bugs to allow Audacity to function correctly. It's basically inoperable currently.

Write me next time please. As I mainly maintain this package.
