Hello im having a hard time understanding and installing ardour on my ubuntu system. I tried the terminal typing in the directory and i cant seem to figure this out and I tried extracting the folder to somewhere on my computer and clicking on the ardour program executable file that's in the bin folder but that doesn't work. How is anyone supposed to install this.

So, from the extracted folder, you tried "./install.sh" from the terminal and it didn't work? Can you give more details or else it'll be hard for anyone to help. What was the terminal readout when it failed to do this?

Also, are you sure you've downloaded the binary and not the source code?

It's not the source code. It's in my downloaded folder, I have it extracted and one that is not. How would I get the terminal to make it work. I put the directory in the terminal but I don't know what else to put like I see the instructions but it's just confusing

Just for ease of explaining, i'll assume you downloaded Ardour_64bit-3.5.308-dbg.tar and it is in your downloads folder. You already have it extracted so you now should have a "Ardour_64bit-3.5.308-dbg" folder in your downloads folder. Open up the terminal and navigate inside this folder -

cd ~/Downloads/Ardour_64bit-3.5.308-dbg

Then run -

./install.sh

This should install Ardour without any issues. If are you having trouble at this stage, it might be because install.sh isn't executable. If that is the case and running ./install.sh is giving you an error about permissions, run -

chmod +x install.sh

This will make it executable. Then you can run ./install.sh again. That should cover everything.

Sounds like a possible bad download. Have you tried redownloading?
