Having issues where linux “Could not open the file /home/patrick/Downloads/Ardour_64bit-5.5.0.run.”…
“xed has not been able to detect the character encoding.
Please check that you are not trying to open a binary file.
Select a character encoding from the menu and try again.”
it gives me two Character Encoding settings
1] current local (UTF-8)
2] Western (ISO-8859-15)
what can i do?
running Linux Mint 18 64 bit
mine didn’t come with “how to install” just a file. Double clicked it because it came with no instructions and it ran. But it was worth mentioning not everyone is getting the same packages.
" Follow these steps to install the latest version of Ardour:
Download the latest release from ardour.org.
Right-click the downloaded file and choose properties.
Click the Permissions tab and check the option "Allow this file to run as a program".
Close the dialog and double-click the file.
Follow the prompts"
**choose run in terminal
I am experiencing this issue as well
I assume you double clicked on the file you downloaded?
See ‘How to Install’
You will need to use the command line.
