Installing Wired on 64Studio...

Here's a list of how to install Wired on 64Studio (in as best as I can possibly remember) *DON'T INCLUDE THE "" QUOTES IN YOUR TYPINGS* 1) Open a terminal, Type "cd /home/" if not already in your home directory 2) Type "su" and enter password 3) Type "gedit /etc/apt/sources.list" 4) Add "deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free" at the bottom of the editor. 5) Save and Close 6) Type "apt-get update" in the terminal, generally ignore any errors. 7) Type "apt-get build-dep wired" 8) Type "apt-get source -b wired" 9) Wait about 20-30 minutes for the source to compile. 10) Open up Home Folder in a browser 11) You should have "libwired1", "libwired-dev", "wired" and "wired-plugins" as ".deb" packages. 12) If this is the case (which it should) remove the folders and ".gz" packages for wired. You don't need them anymore. To remove them type: - "rm -r wired-0.5.1+dfsg2" - "rm wired_0.5.1+dfsg2.orig.tar.gz" - "rm wired_0.5.1+dfsg2-1.diff.gz" - "rm wired_0.5.1+dfsg2-1.dsc" 13) Install the remaining debian packages in the following order. - Type "dpkg -i libwired-dev_0.5.1+dfsg2-1_i386.deb" - Type "dpkg -i libwired1_0.5.1+dfsg2-1_i386.deb" - Type "dpkg -i wired_0.5.1+dfsg2-1_i386.deb" - Type "dpkg -i wired-plugins_0.5.1+dfsg2-1_i386.deb" 14) For good luck, open up the start menu, go into "Sounds and Video" and they it is! And That's it! Works for me, should work for all other 64Studio users (in theory) enjoy! Iain

wired: error while loading

wired: error while loading shared libraries: libWiredWidgets.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory What did I do wrong? Followed the instructions, but something must've went wrong. :( Got it! Added the following and started flawlessly: export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib

Personal Preference...

Its all to do with what the user feels more comfortable working with... for example, people who use Cubase may use it because they don't like the way Sonar, Logic or Audition may be presented. just as in Linux, we have Ardour, Lmms, Rosegarden, Wired and Jokosher (and many more)... Each program has its own approach to getting the job done. And its not arguable which one gets it done quicker. (That's all down to the end user to decide). Linux GUI also has a very peculiar way of getting users... While the vast majority just use gnome or kde, some use enlightenment or xfce, others will use Ion3 or WMii... and some computer nerds will just use the console... If you are open minded about new software... give it a go! If you play about with it and decide its not your thing. typing "make uninstall" in the wired source directory will make it all go away...

My Question Is...

What makes wired superior to any of the other equivalent programs already bundled in 64 Studio?

sourceforge.net

hmm... downloading the source from (http://wired.sourceforge.net) works for me... extract the tarball to any folder, preferably home. enter the new wired directory. make sure etch main is in your repository list. (minimum) "deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ etch main" (this can be added in synaptic. or in the console type:"sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list" to add it there) update repositories then... apt-get install gettext cvs autotools-dev libxml2-dev libwxgtk2.6-dev wx-common libsoundtouch1-dev libsndfile1-dev libsamplerate0-dev dssi-dev libflac++-dev libvorbis-dev after that its a simple: ./autogen.sh ./configure make su Password: make install exit wired It's infact more stable than using the Debian repository... And less hassle to work with it too... Thank-you for pointing out a new version to me :D Iain

How about with wired 0.6?

How about with wired 0.6? Anyone had any success with installing that? The instructions are only for 0.51. And apparently there's no package yet in repos of 0.6.

Also, to point out...

I've accidently got the deb pack order wrong... It should be LIBWIRED1 before LIBWIRED-DEV if only there was an edit function on the first post... I feel like a right gimp now :) Oh well, what's done is done... Iain. PS: For those who read this a fortnight after its writing... Please bare in mind that wired may of been updated since writing this... and 0.51 may not be the latest version, therefore changing the names accordingly is adviced. And for those who do read this while 0.5.1a is still availiable, please bare in mind that this is still a test release and functions of the audio editor may still causes crashes in the program. What I do hope to acheive is that installing this package now will make it easier in the future for more stable updates. At least, till the repo-men at Debian can make this package easily availiable...

thank-you for pointing out a flaw

"1) Open a terminal, Type "cd /home/" if not already in your home directory" Should be: "cd /home/**your user directory**" else it probably won't work. the only other reason I can think of it installing dfsbuild "apt-get install dfsbuild" That should solve your problem, sorry. I did write this down after doing it. (I should of really wrote as I went along...) Regards Iain

8) Type "apt-get source -b

8) Type "apt-get source -b wired" generates a list of errors

To make Wired compliant with JACK, go into the Edit tab and click Settings... Change the "Audio Output" from "OSS" to "JACK Audio Connection Kit" Same with the "Audio Input" Finally change "MIDI" by clicking the box [ ] for your MIDI box/lead/card Clicking Apply and OK should set everything up for you ;D Iain
