The best place to ask programming/development questions, imo. UPDATE: stackoverflow is the *worst* place to *ask* questions (if your first question/comment doesn't get any up-rating/response, then u can't ask anymore questions--ridiculously unrealistic), but a great reference for finding answers.

ubuntu precise 12.04 - how to install lmms with vst support

UPDATE 20130205: How to install LMMS 0.4.14-rc1 with VST support on Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin)


by installing lmms the normal way in the normal ubuntu package system:
sudo apt-get install lmms

there's no vst/vestige in lmms, so i ran this command:
sudo apt-get install lmms-vst

but got the following message:
Unable to locate package lmms-vst

NOTE: the ubuntu 12.04 lmms version is 0.4.10

TO GET LMMS WITH VST SUPPORT DO THIS:


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:irie/lmms


after running this you'll get the following message:
To use the VST support with Wine, you have to assign /usr/lib/lmms to some drive letter using Wine configuration (winecfg)

winecfg

drives > add (a drive--it suggested D: for me)
click D:
path: /usr/lib/lmms
ok/save

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lmms


NOTE: the irie/lmms PPA will install lmms version 0.4.13!

  1. Thank you so much - we searched a lot to get synth1 loading into lmms, but with no luck, and this advice fixed it! We are on Ubuntu 12.10 LTS.
