trying to install nomalize-audio
#1
I have tried to install normalize-audio from the Mint  software manager numerous times on 2 different computers.It supposedly installs,according to the software manager,but I can find no trace of it.If I go back into the software manager,it is there.I am running Mint 19.2 cinnamon on both machines.What gives?

Is "normalize-audio" an application or a service? Because if it is a service you might need to manually enable it. If it is an application, are you sure it actually provides a graphical user interface?

Don't know and don't know.I searched in the Mint software manager and it came up.I installed it and nothing happened.I tried to install it again and it says it is already installed,but it doesn't show up anywhere.If it is a service,how do I manually enable it if I can't find it?While I was Messing about I found PulseEffects and installed it.The Auto Gain setting seems similar to normalize,but it seems to also reduce dynamic range quite a lot.(using default settings)Lots of other settings to play with.....

Normalize-audio is a command-line program, so it is unlikely to have a menu item listed for it in your typical desktop environment. You can find instructions on how to use it here... http://normalize.nongnu.org/README.html

Note: normalize-audio has not been updated since Sept of 2005.

hello,

To see the working services you have to type in your terminal "systemctl status" to enable a service you need to type in your terminal: "systemctl enable [service name]". But nomalize-audio is a package, i can tell it because of this link: https://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package_me...age+Search

now we know it is a package, try to type in your terminal "man normalize-audio" if the man page are loaded it means your package is correctly installed. An other command you can try is "which normalize-audio" the command returns the application path. If  you don't find it, maybe the software center have not installed it properly? If, big if, it is the case, than try uninstall it and install it again through terminal this time.
If the man page appears you will see the content of this page: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/cosm...dio.1.html 

I like to mention i found in the ubuntu forum (fr version) some thread with someone asking from a "normalize-audio" app with a graphic user interface. So i assume your package is a CLI app.

 I hope this helped.

OK,Thanks.Just discovered MIXX.It has an on the fly,non destructive normalize setting,and can be used as as audio player.Sort of like shooting a mosquito with an elephant gun,but it works.
