If you want a prebuilt ready-to-run version with support, then yes. You are
free to build it yourself or find some other user of your distro and use
that if you prefer, but I just ask that you don't ask me to support it if
you make that choice.

In a terminal window, change directory to wherever the downloaded tar file
lives, and type:

             tar xf Ardour_64bit-3.3.1-dbg.tar


            cd Ardour_64bit-3.3.1

and read the file named README that you find there.

I only offer support for the version downloaded from ardour.org. The
version you got from Launchpad - that is for Ubuntu people to support.
