Try this command in a terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install calf-plugins
That should include the Fluidsynth wrapper and all of the other Calf goodness.

If Calf is already installed, then maybe it is installed to a nonstandard directory or something

Thanks for the idea.

I tried it out, and it says:
Unable to locate package calf-utils

I tried updating with: sudo apt-get update

No luck after trying to install again.

Thanks fo rany way to move forward.

"calf-plugins" or "calf-utils"? Should be plugins.

Another place to check is Synaptic package manager, which you should find in your system menu somewhere. Search for "calf" and tell us what you find.

Try:

apt search calf

and tell us the output

Hello,

I have some news.

I finally tried installing the plugins, not the utils, and it did nto fail.

But it turns out, it is already installed, the newest version. 0.90.3

But, it mad ea comment I have never sene before:

It is set to calf manually installed.

What might this mean?

The output sowed the the installed calf 0.90.3, as well as a few other unrelated files.

Thanks for any feedback.

Hello again everyone.

just want to follow up on the results I posted earlier this week.

Calf is already installed. But, this does not help me since I still can not select it from with the software.

Thansk for any feedback/.

It if helps, I remind you all that I just installed Ubuntu Studio, which seems to have a lot of the common software installed.

Thanks

Try running

calfjackhost

from the command line. Does it show CALF?

Hello,

Thanks for the feedback.

When I run calfjackhost, the command line displays about 20 lines of comments and CALF JACK HOST opens up in a new window.

I can then open files or add a plug in.

Thanks
