| The "monitoring" issue unique to linux was something noted in the docs that led me to believe that it might not work with other distros either, being a "basic editor." |
From the audacity site:
Windows and Linux
With most Windows and Linux audio devices, it is possible to record whatever sound the computer is currently playing, including internet radio streams.
In the drop-down menu on Audacity's mixer toolbar, choose “Wave Out” or “Stereo Mix” as the input source. (The exact name may be different, depending on your computer's sound drivers.) When you press the Record button, Audacity will capture whatever sound is playing on your computer's speakers. Note that on Windows Vista, the “stereo mix” option must be chosen in the Audio I/O tab of Preferences, in the “Recording Device” dropdown.
If this doesn't work on your computer, you can instead use a cable to connect your computer's “Line Out” (speaker) port to its “Line In” port, and use Audacity to record from Line In.
