Summary0009081: Speedrum Light file requester opens in the Flatpak version - but not in the actual .run version of Ardour 7.1
DescriptionHello, my System: Linux Mint 21 Cinnamon.
Speedrum light has a function to save complete drumsets incl samples. The file requester opens with the flatpak version of linux mint. Today i installed the actual .run version, and with this, no file requester opens. Otherwise this plugin works normal.

I installed the vst3 version here: /usr/lib/lxvst3
Steps To ReproduceClick to load or save a drumset - and you see no file requester. (look to my screenshot)
TagsNo tags attached.

This is not a valid location, please see

try /usr/lib/vst3/ or $HOME/.vst3/

Assuming they use an old version of JUCE, may be relevant.

Tested. Same issue. Also anywhere in the $HOME/.vst3/

btw: in the $HOME/.vst3/presets - Ardour saves the presets of the vst plugins.

And here expects Ardour the plugins:

i have a fully and fresh Mint 21 all updated on my Desktop and my Laptop - and on all 2 machines the same: Flatpak Version works, the .run version not.
Error must be on Ardour (missing rights that plugins are allowed to open the file requester or whatever).

...can not edit my entry so a new....

Where does Ardour expect VST3 plugins via default?
In the manual it's not mentionend. I add the path of course in the VST settings, but that would be useful, if the manual gets here an information.

Additional info: Surge XT (Synthesizer)
has on option "File load from disk" - there is also no file requester window that opens

Works fine in my local build. I will check the official nightly build tomorrow.

Thanks for checking.

I have the normal build installed (not nightly). To be on the safe side, i explain it again: Surge Top middle load / right side "Functions / load patch from file" - i expect a file requester where i can select an sound / patch saved anywhere on my disc.

If on your system all works fine, then the reason in my opinion is the install routine / system on Linux Mint 21 Cinnamon.
As mentioned, the Flatpak version works right and bring the file requester - only the official download version 7.1.0 has that problem.
The issue is on 3 different machines - so i would say a general problem.

I bought now the big brother of Speedrum and the same issue. No file requester windows open if i want to load drumsets.

I use the Redux Sampler and there is a function in the sound explorer inside of Redux called "reveal in file explorer" - that also doesn't work (i expect that the file requester of linux opens if i click on it). So i mean all file requester open commands (to open the linux Nemo file explorer) from plugins, are not running
