Comment 1 Nicolas Dufresne 2016-06-13 18:23:24 UTC
It works if one force the GDK backend to X11

  GDK_BACKEND=x11 audacity

Comment 2 David Timms 2016-09-22 09:14:19 UTC
What lines are printed to the terminal during the attempted start when started from a terminal ?

It's boring, sorry ;-P

$ audacity 
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Comment 5 Scott Talbert 2016-10-12 03:49:13 UTC
It looks like this happens because audacity dlopen()'s libgnome and libgnomeui, which then call X11 functions.  Those GNOME 2 calls can probably just be patched out because it seems to work fine even if libgnome and libgnomeui packages aren't installed.

The new version launches under GNOME Wayland on F25 without the GDK_BACKEND=x11 workaround.
