It is not a sub-map of JDK
Actually, I have a few versions in there, including openjdk and they're all linked (should've mentioned that), so putting the .jar in the location I mentioned means it's also in (among other places) /usr/lib64/jvm/jre-openjdk/lib/ext/. So yes, I did compile it myself, along with trying the latest .jar downloaded from sourceforge (they're the same version), but neither of them worked.
probably modify /etc/profile is the best way and just wath you need.
I've just tried this, but it's still not working, I'm afraid. I did the following steps:
- added the info to profile (FYI, on openSUSE, you use profile.local)
- rebooted and confirmed the path with "echo $LINUXSAMPLER_PLUGIN_DIR"
- recompiled/installed libgig, linuxsampler, gigedit in that order
Just in case, I also checked with linuxsampler running in standalone mode, rather than LV2, but that didn't work either. Anyway, like I say, it's not a huge issue so please don't spend too much time on this
