I’m a longtime supporter of the Ardour project and I have hardly used the software! I remember getting frustrated with the install process several times before and putting my experimentation on the back burner. Here is what I’m getting when I ./Ardour-7.3.0-x86_64.run. I want to make sure I install this correctly from the start. Can anyone let me know what I need to do to get this install going without a hitch?
