cheers Pablo, I found it at the end (Ubuntu forums) : you need to install this : sudo apt-get install libasound2-dev, so from the beginning for using dssi-vst from a original 64studio 2.1 : 1) install wine and wine-dev, from winehq repositore (add « deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/ etch main » dans /etc/apt/sources.list) 2) run winecfg (as anormal user) 3) checked etch-backport respositorie in Synaptic enabled 4) install dssi-dev, then un checked etch-backport respositorie 5) check liblo is setup and install liblo-dev 6) download ddsi-vst 7) unzip vst_sdk2_3.zip 8) copy vstsdk2.3 indossier dssi-vst folder 9) install linux headers and curses librairies : sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev ncurses-term 10) install libasound2-dev : sudo apt-get install libasound2-dev 11) compil dssi-vst - make - make install 12) Once you have compiled, make sure your VST instrument (.dll file) doesn't have spaces. Rename it if needed. You can put it in /home/user/VST or as you like. rem : some plugins work with dssi-vst but not with vsthost and some plugins work with vsthost but bot with dssi-vst

I'm scratching my head here.

I'm scratching my head here. I'm sorry I did this a long time ago and maybe my instructions are not complete. Please try again installing dssi (./configure, make and sudo make install) from the sourceforge site. Also, I'm not sure if you need to upgrade to jack 0.109 as explained in the ardour 2. 5 install howto. When I did so, lots of packages were uninsalled but installing them again was quick and easy. someone else to help compiling dssi-vst? Cheers Pablo

I had tried this 1) Install

I know about dssi-vst, I tried two weeks ago, but in order to installed dssi-dev, I had to check the "ecth-backport" repository.. And at the and, after upgrade, my Qsampler used to bug.. so I turn back to a re-install of 64studio... so what do I need ? I guess : 1. prepare for compilation : sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev ncurses-term 2. compile dssi-dev ? I notice in my repository that dssi is on "0.9.1-3~etch1" version but the dssi-dev only on "0.9.1-2~etch1", even if I can't get it* * the pb is about the "libjack0.100.0-dev" dependancy, itself depending on "libjack0.100.0-0" which is said not install, even if it's already installed

dssi-vst

Hi To launch VST instruments I'm successfully using dssi-vst, by Chris Cannam I discovered it thanks to thorgal from linuxmusicians and ardour fora and I found it much more easy to install and use than VSTHost as explained in 64studio tutorial. You don't even need wineasio. So, I can't be of much help regarding to VSTHost but if you want to try dssi-vst, you have to proceed as follows: 1) Install wine and wine-dev, from the winehq repositories (http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/ etch main) 2) Run winecfg and make sure you have a windows-like drive for "/" (it can be D: for example, while C: is /home/user/.wine/drive_c) 3) Download ddsi-vst and compile it following the instructions on the README file. You will need at least the dssi headers (dssi-dev from 64studio is OK) but check the README and be patient. 4) Once you have compiled, make sure your VST instrument (.dll file) doesn't have spaces. Rename it if needed. You can put it in /home/user/VST or as you like. Launch it with $vsthost /home/user/VST/your-vsti.dll By the way, according to the README file, the last version of dssi-vst (0.8) has support for 64bit linux. I'm running the 32 bit version just because you couldn't run VST instruments otherwise. But look at this!. Cheers Pablo
