Re: to decompress ./Ardour-5.12.0-x86.run (555644 KB)

I did run sudo apt-get install ardour and it did download. It played back audio well but the problem is when I reopen a saved project the tempo is never in the place I left it and it doesnt let me change it either?

to decompress ./Ardour-5.12.0-x86.run (555644 KB)

I'm trying to run Ardour on the raspberry pi running the pi top OS but it says

to decompress ./Ardour-5.12.0-x86.run (555644 KB)

then says

consider setting TMPDIR to a directory with more free space?

Does this mean I just need to delete other programs? Or is it to do with ram?
