You're new to the LinuxSampler world? You don't know where to start and nothing works? Here's the place to ask for help.

Help with installation, please

Postby bbarton1169 » Mon Mar 25, 2013 10:39 pm

Hi All,

I downloaded all the Linuxsampler files from the linuxsampler.org site and tried installing. It looks like it goes through all the way but the button in Ubuntu Software Center still says "Install" like nothing happened.

I also tried Synaptic and choosing everything I could find for Linuxsampler but I don't see any icons to start it.

Can anyone let me know what I might be doing wrong?

If you use Ubuntu I recommend installing linuxsampler (and other music software) from the kxstudio repositories: http://kxstudio.sourceforge.net/

Can you be more exhaustive on what you mean by that Varpa? I looked up the site and don't see any relation: linux sampler is not listed in the application page...

The applications you see listed on kxstudio are just ones developed specifically for kxstudio. The kxstudio ppas have many linux audio applications, such as linuxsampler. My general advice for doing audio on Linux is to use a specialized audio distribution such as kxstudio, ubuntustudio, dreamstudio (all ubuntu-based) or AVLinux (and there are others). As I mentioned the kxstudio ppa can be used by any Ubuntu distro. True, any linux can be used for audio, but you'll saourve yourself a lot of trouble compiling and optimizing your system by using an audio-oriented distro.

Thanks for your reply Varpa. If I understand well we need to install another software, that would set our computer to fit audio needs? is that a sort of operating system or driver? I downloaded cadence from the site you indicate, extracted it to a folder, but could not run any of the icons by double clicking them... Is there something to know about how to install software without the software library or the apt-get command?

Now I started the download of the iso containing kxstudio. Is there an equivalent to daemon tools under windows?

I don't know if something was changed but I made it with the installation.
