I'm using a Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5300 @ 2.60GHz × 2, with GeForce 210/PCIe/SSE2 graphics. 32 bit.

I have been using Audacity fine in 10.10, and 11.10 but since upgrading to 12.04 precise, it fails to load. Same experience with Openshot and Ardour.

The other media players; totem, rhythmbox work as normal.

I've tried uninstalling and re-installing. No Luck.

Trying to open Audacity from the terminal ('cause nothing happens when clicking the icon), I get this message:

(Audacity:2236): Gnome-WARNING **: Accessibility: failed to find module 'libgail-gnome' which is needed to make this application accessible

With Openshot, I get:

------------------------- ERROR 1 ------------------------------
Failed to import 'from openshot import main'
Error Message: cannot import name main

With Ardour, I get:

WARNING: Your system has a limit for maximum amount of locked memory!
     This might cause Ardour to run out of memory before your system runs
     out of memory. You can view the memory limit with 'ulimit -l', and it
     is normally controlled by /etc/security/limits.conf

I'm a musician with several projects on the go in these apps, especially Audacity. I NEED them!

Linking external sites as an answer is never recommended, preferably you should copy the important information that you think might be helpful and leave a link to the source. One link answers are not good answers, specially if they are in another language other than English. –  Bruno Pereira Jun 9 '12 at 9:42
