Is there any way to record audio on Ubuntu server? I've got Ubuntu on an old Acer Aspire 5520g but I'm not sure where to start with recording audio on it.
Of course - there are lots of programs out there which do this - most are fairly minimal - but Audacity has lots of features, and works almost everywhere.
(If you can't get sound output working then you'll probably have problems with recording too)
Or if you need a command line tool - arecord comes bundled in the ALSA package
