64studio 3.0 software wishlist

  • skullnotions
Posted: Tue, 01/06/2009 - 16:45
Hi, 64studio 2.1 = 800MB DVD 64studio 3.0 = 600MB CD (at present) There are packages still to be added to the new 64studio 3.0 alpha. Free would like to keep the ones on 2.1 but would also like to know what packages we would like added to the new release. These are the ones I've found need to be re-added. linux-headers lilypond rosegarden seq24 meterbridge If you post here any you would like included, there's a good chance the version release will contain the software you want. Cheers! dave.

Why not checkout puredyne's package list: http://puredyne.goto10.org/about.html ? One thing I'd like to see included is PiTiVi: http://www.pitivi.org/ . Aside from that, LuxRender (www.luxrender.net), Sunflow (http://sunflow.sourceforge.net/), Aqsis (http://www.aqsis.org/), Kerkythea (http://www.kerkythea.net/joomla/) and DrQueue (http://www.drqueue.org/cwebsite/) would make welcome additions to the package set.

I have installed and tested the packages: "Bristol"(0.40.6) and "Monobristol"(0.40.5) on 64studio 3.0hardy. Everything works fine. You need to add the packages: libasound2-dev, jackd, libX11-dev, libjack-dev, mono-gmcs, download the sources: bristol-0.40.6.tar.gz, monobristol_0.40.5.orig.tar.gz than: sh ./configure, make install Enjoy

Stop concidering about Bristol! The version included in ubuntu-karmic works fine with Monobristol, so inclide it both. I will suggest Jajuk for default audio player. it's perfect for large audio collections. Rosegarden 1.1.7.x does not play sounds at all. It's practicly unusable on both 2.1etch, 3.0hardy and 3.0lenny versions. I use the original hardy 1.1.6.x version and it works just fine. So please reconfigure/downgrade Rosegarden to make it usable. You can add Freebirth and make it with more user-friendly interface if it's possible! Thanks, you are the BEST, Biser

Just recently i reinstalled my wife's system with a 9.04 MINIMAL ubuntu disc. after the install she had virtually nothing for apps. COOL! i hand picked just what she needed (what she uses the most) and her system is sweetly clean and unbloated. MY wish...the same option for 64 studio. Sure most of us are running dual cores, speedy machines...not the issue but having extra software that has never graced the desktop because they're just never used is the issue. If i had my wish...would be virtually nothing in graphics, JUST what i use in sound and whatever i pick for office. ONLY a browser in internet... Just a wish...or a clean cool way to remove all that i do not use without damaging my current install. cheers

Hi, I would like to request some tools for using 64studio as a slave box for orchestral scoring, or processing over a network. Netjack support seems likely, but including VLC or some tool to remotely access the GUI to make changes to a headless computer would be helpful. The idea is to use 64studio as a replacement for expensive receptors aqnd have some of the equivalent tools they include, that are useful. Composers sometimes farmed boxes for playing instruments connected to a central MAC or Windows computer running DP, Logic or Cubase/Nuendo. Having a way to easily add and maintain 64studio boxes would be handy in this application.

My request is probably out

My request is probably out of the ordinary. I'd like to see a separation of the one distro into 2 separate spins -- one for musicians, and the other for graphics/video artists. I'm a musician, so most all of the video stuff (aside from a simple video player) is stuff that I have to manually uninstall. I suspect that the video/graphics guys likewise don't need some of the esoteric music stuff.

Apparently, SuperCollider sclang in svn trunk can now build against ia32-libs, rather than having to be run in a 32-bit chroot! I have tried to do this and failed, but I will try again. I think this would be a great addition to 3.0, we could just sudo apt-get install supercollider-*. I already tried to turn an SC user onto 64 Studio but this was an obstacle. He wanted an easy install, and he wanted 64-bit. -- Michael Pacey

rt2x00 drivers

  • Mon, 06/22/2009 - 17:08
Ok, I learned more about my WLAN USB card: 1. It's not one with rt2570 but with the rt73 chipset 2. It should be supported out-of-the-box with the kernel because the rt2x00 drivers have been included since kernel 2.6.24. I'm a bit confused at this point. (rt2570-source is a legacy package and therefore discontinued) Edit: According to the rt2x00 tem the realtime kernel developers excluded rt2x00 because of compiler errors which they didn't reported to the rt2x00 team. These compiler errors have been fixed in the meantime.

I have a WLAN USB stick with rt2570 chipset, so it would be nice if the corresponding drivers would be including in the Kernel. The source package is this one: http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/net/rt2570-source Including rutilt would also be nice: http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/net/rutilt

I would love to see BRP-PACU implemented as a package within Studio 64 (granted, I'm not certain about what exactly that entails...I'm a bit of a newbie). It's not terribly popular, but my experiments with it have been positive, and I can't imagine anyone who does serious audio work not benefiting from a powerful and lightweight replacement for SMAART...even without the need for tuning live sound systems, it can be a great tool for analyzing microphone placement and looking at plugin phase smearing.

I would like a ready to go version of OpenOMR. I got it working once but never again. I don't know of any other OMR softeare for Linux, but I would give anything a go. Also the latest version of Muse Score. Its everso stable unlike the older on; although MIDI is a bit hit and miss. It would be nice to have a nice selection of soundfonts, but I spose that would be a copyright issue. Must admit I do prefer open office Glad to see you included Evolution; I love it! QAmix is a nifty little tool which makes life easier (for me anyway) As for the rest of 64Studio. I Love it!! Rob

Ardour 2.8vst

Could it be possible to have Ardour 2.8vst, wineasio and Qtractor ? Tried to download it from getdeb, but the Hardy 64 bits doesn't exist yet. Otherwise, everything works fine, again, with nvidia drivers and the only problems for now, Ardour crashed at startup one time ;) Another questions, certainly not the good post, but Im' here so : Does anyone have a emu 0404 ? What latency do you have ? Thanks... Again... http://www.nocode.fr

If we could have the dssi-vst, it would be so great, with rosegarden, what a perfect solution ! My dream, use "independance free"-vsti in Rosegarden. And again, congratulation, I spent a lot of time to search the perfect distrib. Stable, easy to install with raid, using my HDA soundcard to listen flash and my emu 0404 to work with good latency and after : Ubuntustudio 8.04, mandriva, fedora+ccrma, no one was completely good and 64studio arrived ! You don't imagine how happy I am, and I'm not very often happy. I make music non-stop this last days, instead of searching how to use and configure my distrib.

The upcoming Ardour 2.8 will have everything included to make the LV2 and Vestige dream a reality. The moment Paul Davis releases the new maintenance release, we should have it soon after. On the topic of Ardour, Paul has now decided to work full time on Ardour, so your donations are very important to get the momentum going for version 3.0 and beyond. Subscribe and give a little bit each month. There are various options, and choose one that would suit your budget. Paul and his family needs our help.

As I can see, the other posters talks about everything I've think about, think the heart will be Ardour with LV2 and Vestige included, just to wait Ardour 3 with MIDI !! Thank again Free and Team.

A big thanks to the team for your commitment and dedication to this project.

It would be cool if the 3.0 release could include the Sun Nimbus Theme. It is available for download all over the web but requires a bunch of dependencies that would break 64Studio 2.1 While there are many good themes for Gnome, I think Nimbus is really well designed and easy to the eyes. Libglib, libpango etc? I tried with Lenny, even not up-to-date enough and it attempted to remove 64Studio. If it's not a big deal, please include. Nimbus cannot be installed by dragging a zip file. Cheers, Thomas PS. I kept trying and after the first installation, everything accept "Controls" works. After installation run the following:

$ make clean

$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/

$ make

$ make install

Got it to work :-) ignore all other errors. But again, would be nice if included!! OK: It turned out that Jamin won't work with this, doesn't even start. Also some applications (in Wine) won't run stable. So, it better should be included correctly in the installer DVD.
