@Spike29 yes, I have that installed already

@ltorvalds024: did you install gst-plugins-ugly? (optional dependency for MP3 recording)

ltorvalds024 commented on 2016-08-07 07:53

the newer version is not recording at all, tried all the options. Getting empty mp3 files. I am running latest arch linux with gnome 3.20

Thanks a lot for your patch and your updated PKGBUILD, goetzc !

I also updated to version 1.6.3 - it's the latest version distributed in the Ubuntu PPA repository.

This fails to build with GTK 3.16.
Please, apply this patch:

updated PKGBUILD:

Unfortunately, "libappindicator-gtk3" is now required (it's no longer an optional dependency) since classic tray icon support was removed from audio-recorder 1.6.0.
audio-recorder won't build without this dependency.

Thanks, I'll update the package later today or tomorrow.

Version 1.6.2 is the current version.

I found out that the latest version is 1.2 and is available on audio-recorder's PPA for Ubuntu Saucy :

Also, namcap considers pulseaudio, gst-plugins-base and gst-plugins-good as "unneeded" dependencies (libpulse and gstreamer should be enough in theory).
But in practice, audio-recorder won't start if pulseaudio isn't running, and gst-plugins-good provides the "" library, which is required for recording ability.
Moreover, gst-plugins-base must be installed alongside gst-plugins-good for true WAV encoding.
