Ardour cannot open FLAC files

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ardour

As far as I know, the version of Ardour included in Ubuntu does not support FLAC files, though it can be compiled to support them.

See "Ardour and flac" Ubuntu Forums thread:


"How Do I Import FLAC Into Ardour 2.0 Rc1?"

They're supported fine in Audacity and Adobe Audition, so I converted all my .wav files to .flac long ago and saved several GB. Now that I am trying to use Ardour, of course, they are useless.

Ardour supports FLAC only with 1.1.2, but Ubuntu >= 7.10 has 1.1.4 versión of FLAC (hardy, intrepid and jaunty have 1.2.1 version)

Then, this is a bug of upstream
