[Solved] Synthv1 - Ubuntu Studio - installation problem & can't find plugin


I'm using Reaper and Ardour on Ubuntu Studio. Neither can find the version of Synthv1 that comes with Ubuntu Studio, but I think that it's just the standalone Jack version so I'd guess that's why.

I've tried installing the LV2 version, but when converting the RPM to DEB using Alien I got the attached warnings, though it seemed to convert OK. However, after installing I still can't find the LV2 and neither can Reaper or Ardour.

Does anybody know where it could be?

please avoid doing that--using alien to convert a rpm into a deb--you'll probably end up with binaries placed on locations that a debian/ubuntu system will never find them (/usr/lib64 instead of /usr/lib, is the most notorious).

i'm sure you'll get way better results if you get it from my Applications PPA's -- see the repositories or go ahead directly to ...

for instance, if you are on UbuntuStudio 20.04 LTS (focal fossa), you'll be good with the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rncbc/apps-focal
sudo apt-get update

then, to install the synthv1 LV2 plugin:

sudo apt-get install synthv1-lv2

Thanks, that worked!

I'm sorry for the delay replying - I've had loads of other problems which have been fixed after three fresh installations of Mint, Ubuntu Studio stuff and other bits and bobs.

Loads of fun. :p
