What sound recorder is provided by Xubuntu 11.10 or is lightweight and would be a good candidate for the XFCE desktop?

If you are talking about a package that comes with the standard installation of Xubuntu, we need to know which version of Xubuntu you are using. – iglvzx Dec 1 '11 at 7:34
Have you tried going to the Software Centre and typing "sound recorder" in there? – Mokubai Dec 1 '11 at 16:58

Xubuntu 11.10 does not come prepackaged with a sound recording utility. If you are looking for something simple, I recommend the Sound Recorder utility (as Mokubai suggested), which is installed with the gnome-media package.
