gigedit builds but linuxsampler can' tuse it

Postby songshop » Tue Dec 07, 2010 11:08 pm

hi guys - long time ;)
always build from cvs - gigedit just can't be seen by linuxsampler. i always use Jsampler btw. I get 'There is no instrument editor capable to handle this instrument'. what could be wrong?

Yeah, I found the same thing so will be following this. I ended up just running gigedit from a terminal then unloading/reloading the gig in Jsampler after fiddling.

I've sold this problem for myself very easily. I had a read through the Gigedit Quickstart guide, specifically the section Trouble With Live Editing.

From this I realised that I had built things in the wrong order -- I had built Gigedit first, then LinuxSampler. By rebuilding Gigedit (just the usual configure/make/make install steps), it found LS and created the plugin that launches Gigedit from within Fantasia and now the Edit button works fine.

It might be as simple as doing what I did, but it might be more complicated -- it's certainly worth a shot and if it doesn't work, go through the guide in detail.

I'm having the same issue here. Have tried the following:

- built linuxsampler, then built gigedit, as Quirq suggests
- commented out the line in Sampler.cpp, as discussed here, then re-built linuxsampler and gigedit in that order
- checked the output when running linuxsampler from the console (suggested in the Quickstart) and saw the below, so it looks fine:

Code: Select all
Loading instrument editor plugins...OK
Registered instrument editors: 'gigedit'

And as turfreijer mentions in the thread linked above, I'm also not sure where to find this lscp file. Is it only used when running in standalone mode or something? I'm currently using Linux Sampler as an LV2 plugin with Qtractor.

I'm running the following:

OpenSUSE 13.1 64 bit
linuxsampler rev 2669 from svn
libgig rev 2669 from svn
gigedit rev 2669 from svn
gigedit install path: /usr/local/bin/gigedit
Jsampler Fantasia 0.9

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Hi all,

the file jlscp.jar is neede. You can compile this. Place the file in map: jre...\lib\ext\

see: https://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html
the part: dependencies.

Also comile liblcsp and install if before libgig

When you work with debian: use dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b
otherwise:
make -f Makefile.cvs or svn(if one if these files is present )
./configure
make
sudo make install


I can not guarantee that this issue is solved, buth it is the correct whay.

For those who want to tray here are links to a very recent builds for debian:

Hi,

I have managed to install openSUSE the latest release. I must say it is very nice, a Linux licid puppy 64 bit. WOW!

It worked to download from subversion.

I managed to install the needed libraries as far as I know using zypper.

I managed tot compile liblscp, but it generates a .deb file.
It is not clear to me, if and how to install a deb package.
It also creates a liblscp.spec file.
And a liblscp..tar.gz file.
I suppose you need a .rpm file.
Then trying to create a rpm it serches in usr/src/packages/sources

So it is not clear to me how to compile and generate a rpm package.

I am missing the overview?

Any one a advice?


Kind regards,

JanFlorijn

Thanks very much for the swift response. I didn't expect anyone to install a new OS just for this, though - sorry about that :-(

I've tried what you suggest and, unfortunately I still can't get it working. I went back and re-installed everything in the order stated on the downloads page and put jlscp.jar in the place that you/its readme mention, but no luck. Unless anyone else has any ideas, I'll just have to run gigedit in standalone mode, which works fine, but is a bit fiddly.

With regard to the rpm issue, I just built everything from svn using the usual configure/make/make install steps. I don't think there should be any need to build an rpm unless you particularly want one (e.g. to make the package available for other people). I've never needed to create my own rpms - have only ever installed others' through YaST/zypper.

Hi,

Be not afraid, I installed openSUSE on a external USB disk. :D I am interested in these things and I have time to do it.

Did you install jlscp on $JRE_HOME + /lib/ext?

Then for my convinience:
When you run make install, what are the next actions to install liblscp, to get the files in the right place?

Kind regards,
