|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0008280: Plugin presets can be saved but not loaded, with default configuration|
|Description||Saving presets for LV2 plugins works as expected (they appear in my ~/.lv2) folder, but after restarting ardour6 none of the saved presets appear in the preset list.|
The forum comment at https://discourse.ardour.org/t/saving-plugin-presets-programmatically-lua-midi-osc/100482/23 gives a workaround: set LV2_PATH to include $HOME/.lv2 before starting ardour6.
It seems wrong that Ardour saves data by default in a location which it doesn't read by default. Can we change the default LV2_PATH to include `$HOME/.lv2` ?
|Steps To Reproduce||Steps I took using Ardour 6.0.0 on Fedora 32, built from the source tarball:|
1. Start ardour6, create a project, create a track and add an LV2 plugin.
2. Save a preset for the plugin.
3. Restart ardour
4. Open the same plugin UI, look in vain for the preset that you saved.

||This can be worked around as described here: https://discourse.gnome.org/t/how-to-set-an-environment-variable-when-starting-an-application/3724/4|
Your problem would not occur with the build of ardour from ardour.org
It is caused by using a version of liblv on your system that wasn't compiled to search in ~/.lv2. The version used in the official build does this correctly.
||Thanks for the information. I'm using Fedora 32 so I guess a change is needed in the Fedora package. I'll open an issue there instead.|
