How to install the latest version of Audacity on Ubuntu 16.04

How to install the latest version of Audacity on Ubuntu 16.04

Today we are looking at how to install the latest version of Audacity on Ubuntu via a PPA.  Audacity offers a nightly PPA but not a Stable one, so we are using a valid unofficial one.  I attached the source code of the PPA below so you can check it out if you like, but I trust it.  After you added the PPA you will receive newer versions via your normal system updates.

For an updated blog, based on Ubuntu 18.04 look here: https://www.linuxmadesimple.info/2019/02/how-to-install-latest-version-of.html
