I'm currently using Debian 11 with KDE plasma desktop, and while using the appimage version of audacity, I can't seem to configure it to record system audio, or in other words, I'd like to be able to record any audio playing through my soundcard. From the online documentation, it tells me to set pulseaudio settings to monitor mode, and then set Audacity's audio input to pulse. But when I do this, I still don't get any input when trying to record the sounds my system is playing. Is there something that I'm overlooking?
 


on a side note, I found that the program Kwave was able to record system audio successfully
