I'm new to Linuxsampler, but excited to use it with my old gig-library with my Windows 10 based DAW. I've got one big problem with it, though.
When starting Fantasia 0.9 i get a cannot open instruments database error both in Fantasia and in Linuxsampler console. Interestingly enough, my username in Windows is "Yngve Selén" (yea, acute accents in system variables is never a good idea, but this is the way it is now....) and from Fantasia I get "Cannot open instruments database: C:\Users\Yngve Selén\.linuxsampler\instruments.db" and from the console "Cannot open instruments database: C:\Users\Yngve SelÚn\.linuxsampler\instruments.db" <-- note the difference, SelÚn vs Selén... not sure if it makes any difference, but it is a bit interesting...
...anyhow. Following nice online instructions ("linuxsampler --create-instruments-db instruments.db") I was able to generate a database file. I copied this file to the directory where Fantasia is searching (and to the console directory as well, just to be sure). I know that this file now is there!
...still the same error message. And I'm not able to do anything in Fantasia with any database, e.g., I cannot create a new file.
This is quite frustrating. I can load individual instrument files, but this is a bit messy. Is there any friendly and capable windows Linuxsampler user who has any idea how to fix this?
