[SOLVED] - Audacity won't start - except from root

Audacity is installed, but will not start. If I try to do it from konsole no explanation is revealed. I have tried to open it from root and then it works?

Well, what do you see in konsole when you run it as regular user?
Also, what does your ~/.audacity/audacity.cfg contain, what Mageia release is that and is that a fresh installation or using old settings?

Ah... that was it. I had an old folder called .audacity-data - renaming it made the program run! Thank you so much!
