I was playing around with
apt-get install source --compile
And I used audacity:
sudo apt-get install source --compile audacity
However, I am getting a dependency error:

Unmet build dependencies Makes me believe
dpkg is the one with missing dependencies, but I'm really not sure. Installing audacity with
sudo apt-get install audacity
Works just fine, so I don't think this is audacity's issue.
I've seen this question: How do I resolve unmet dependencies?, but I'm not sure if that applies to this or not.
