|Summary||0008572: Failed to instantiate LV2 plugin GxTuner|
|Description||When I try to insert GxTuner on a track from the plugin manager, a popup appears that says :|
"The plugin "GxTuner" could not be loaded".
If I try to insert it from the favorites plugin, nothing happens.
|Steps To Reproduce||Right-click on a processor box to open the plugin manager. Double click on GxTuner and click on "Insert Plugin(s)" button.|
A popup appears that says :
"The plugin "GxTuner" could not be loaded"
|Additional Information||The log shows this line :|
[ERROR]: LV2: Failed to instantiate plugin http://guitarix.sourceforge.net/plugins/gxtuner#tuner
This is what appears on the terminal when I try to add the plugin :
lilv_lib_open(): error: Failed to open library /usr/lib/lv2/gxtuner.lv2/gxtuner.so (/usr/lib/lv2/gxtuner.lv2/gxtuner.so: undefined symbol: _ZN4Glib10Dispatcher7connectEON4sigc4slotIvNS1_3nilES3_S3_S3_S3_S3_S3_EE)
The plugin could be loaded on Adour 6.5 from the UbuntuStudio backport repo. The issue only appeared after I installed Ardour from the official binary. GxTuner also works on Carla.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Nothing we can do here. The plugin needs to be statically linked and not rely on system-wide libraries (otherwise they can conflict with other plugin or host libraries).
Recent versions of guitarix are moving in that direction.
PS. You can work around by compiling ardour and the plugin with the same system-wide libs, but that's only a temporary workaround, until the next update.
Thanks for your answer. I lack a bit of knowledge to fully understand your post so I had to do some research but I couldn't find all the answers.
Do you mean that Ardour's official binary uses static libraries (I couldn't find this in the Ardour website) and that GxTuner uses dynamic libraries ?
I presume that the Ardour binary from UbuntuStudio also uses dynamic libraries which would explain why GxTuner works in this version.
I don't use the most recent version of guitarix but the one from Ubuntu 20.04. Do you mean that I'm likely to experience this kind of issues later with other guitarix plugins, like amp simulators ? Do you discourage using this suite in Ardour ? These question are important because Ardour is the most advanced Linux open source DAW and guitarix is a must have open source LV2 guitar plugin suite so it looks like a major problem for the Linux FOSS users community if Ardour and guitarix don't match.
Thanks for the workaround suggestion but I won't compile Ardour (I'm a musician, you know) so I think I'll use GxTuner standalone app connected to Jack. In the worst case, I still can use Ardour from the UbuntuStudio repo.
> I don't use the most recent version of guitarix but the one from Ubuntu 20.04. Do you mean that I'm likely to experience this kind of issues later with other guitarix plugins,
Recent guitarix should not have this issue. Looks like Ubuntu still ships an older, incompatible one.
Thank you very much. I just misunderstood this sentence :
"Recent versions of guitarix are moving in that direction."
I thought you meant the direction of system-wide libraries. I'm reassured now and I think I can close the bug. Thanks again.
