Because I recently switched my PC at work from Fedora to Ubuntu Lucid Lynx I also started packaging for Lucid.

Hi Guys

A old friend of my comes for a visit at my home, indeed he is a musician to, he was on the search for a decent Guitar amp for live purpose, play Acoustic Guitar together with a Piano, but he was unhappy about what he found. I told him about Linux audio and what it possible with that, he wone get it.
So I install ubuntu10.4 on his (old PIIII) Laptop and add your ppa's to Synaptic. Run a update and a upgrade, set permissions and were done. He use a Tascam 122 for Guitar input, so I add a ~/.asoundrc, connect every thing , plug in the guitar and go.
He was surprised by the sound witch was now possible, and also surprised by the DAW's, Synths and Virtual Keybords,. . . .

All this need to be done fast, so "thanks for your ppa's" , this way it was just to easy to setup a Pro Audio Studio :)

I have tried to add this repository to a machine with Ubuntu Maverick and there are some dependencies problems with Lucid PPA. There are plans to make a Maverick falk PPA repository?

Hi falktx.

There seems to be a problem with Hydrogen and the version of liblash that your ppa proviodes. When I try to run Hydrogen, I get this:

Code: Select all

hydrogen: error while loading shared libraries: liblash.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I actually have liblash installed from your ppa. I believe there's a problem with the symlink to liblash. Right now, the solution seems to be reverting to the liblash version on Ubuntu's repo, or fixing the symlink, according to this source: http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.audio.users/70311. To fix the symlink, I just issued the following command:

Code: Select all

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/liblash.so.1.1.1 /usr/lib/liblash.so.2
That seems to correct the problem. Could you take a look at that, and fix the symlink creation? Thanks.

Sorry for taking so long in answering, I've been a little busy lately.

Yeah, my Hydrogen is running fine, even after the last update. Did you solve the problem?
