  • You shouldn't run sudo apt-get -f install unless you get messages about missing dependencies or broken installations. This command is not part of a normal installation procedure. – Stormlord Aug 2 '16 at 15:27
  • audacity is in universe repository. You don't need to add a PPA for that. And add PPA only you are aware of the risk – Anwar Aug 3 '16 at 4:43

Is there a reason you are not using the Ubuntu main repo? If not:

sudo apt-get install audacity

    sudo apt-get install audacity worked well. – archeiz Aug 7 '16 at 10:40

    I can't believe this isn't written down on the audacity page. It's so simple and functional. – sarki_roka Apr 8 '20 at 20:34
