Using Linux to Record Audio…

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

For years we have been using old laptops at church to record the services. About a month ago I updated Ubuntu to the latest version and lost the audio inputs. I absolutely hate Pulse Audio and the new desktop presentation of Ubuntu has to go.

Today I finally got Linux Mint running on an old Dell Inspiron 5100. It seems lighter than Ubuntu and I love the MATE interface. I am pretty well done with the Unity interface. I don’t think anyone tried harder to like it than did I.

I still struggled to get the audio going. Finally, I followed the instructions here, where JaguarNight explains how he solved it.

You have to be a little intuitive. But when you mess with the ideas in JaguarNight’s post, it works.
