I have Linux (ubuntu). And I would like to record a sound. Does anybody know how to do it? I tried to use "Sound Recorder" program which I found in "Sound & Video" menu. First I press "Record". In several seconds I press "Stop". After that the whole window becomes dark and program does not respond. Does anybody know why it happens and how this problem can be solved?

You could try install Audacity.

If Sound Recorder does not work, maybe install Audacity and try to record from that?

mhWaveEdit is another one you can try. It's less featureful than Audacity, but more reliable in my experience.

I don't know why Sound Recorder would hang. I've never experienced that before.
