Hi there I'm running 64studio 2.1 (64bit) and can't get an external plugin GUI to work in Rosegarden. I've been told (I'm new to linux) that I need to have liblo running. Should I follow the instructions on this site and perform a 64studio upgrade? Would this correct things and give me liblo or am I going to have to build from source (I'm going to need a lot of assistance with this approach!) How far away is 64studio 3.0 - will that have liblo? Cheers for any help! Rich

Have you got an internet connection? If so, it is not a big deal. The system upgrade is a good thing to do in any case. Packages are evolving and getting fixed even in the old Etch, which is the base of 64studio 2.1. You just must have enabled the repositories. See FAQ. Then you go to synaptic, reload and mark all upgrades. This updates all the installed packages. If you haven't liblo installed, you search for it in synaptic and install it. However I can't check right know if liblo is in Etch. Try it, I think so. Installing packages is as easy as that. Even compiling from source is not so difficult as it seems at first sight. You just have to read a bit. A good site lo look at is ubuntu documentation. Well, 64studio 2.1 is not based on ubuntu but on Debian. However, Ubuntu is also based on Debian. Ubuntu is the distro many newbies choose so the docs are very clear and you can apply 80% of it to 64studio 2.1 and almost 98% to 64studio 3.0. 64studio 3.0 will be based on ubuntu. I don't know if liblo is preinstalled. I have it in the Beta, but I can't remember if it was included at first, maybe. Mind you, as long as you have an internet connection and you know which are the needed packages and have your repositories in order, installing packages is like a breeze with synaptic. Cheers! Pablo
