Having trouble configuring synthv1

I have attached my config.log file. I am using a Cinnamon version of Linux Mint. Please let me know if there is any other information you need.

it seems you don't even have the gcc compiler installed...

please, instead of trying to build or compile it yourself, use the repos ... as I believe Linux Mint is based on on some Ubuntu flavor, please use the one of the Applications PPA from


OK, I think I'm making some progress on getting synthv1 installed. I am attaching another config.log file - it appears now there is a problem with LV2 and Jack. Here are the error messages:

No package 'lv2' found
configure:6527: WARNING: *** LV2 header files not found.
configure:6529: WARNING: *** LV2 plug-in build will be disabled.
configure:6550: WARNING: *** LV2 X11 UI support will be disabled.
configure:6761: error: *** JACK and LV2 build options disabled.

remember that for you to build any software from source you need to have all the development dependencies installed: on debian packaging systems, this is about the corresponding "-dev" suffixed packages.

for synthv1, these are mainly the following: libqt5-dev, libjack-dev or libjack-jackd2-dev, libasound2-dev, lv2-dev, liblo-dev.


Where should I store the presets, so that synthv1 will see them?

anywhere you like?

one good idea would be creating one special directory/folder for just that, but you're in charge of your computer :)

just remember this: once created, *.synthv1 files must not be moved around.
