What other apps and distros do you use to round out your studio?

Bristol synths crashing when launched from Claudia

Postby Max Littlemore » Sat Sep 26, 2015 7:15 am

I'm having an issue where Bristol synths launched from the Claudia GUI crash. They open an appropriately sized window with black contents and then disappear with a crash notification. I'm running Linux Mint 17.2 with kxstudio repos.

When I start a bristol synth from the CLI (e.g. $bristol -b3 -jack) the synth behaves as expected.

This has been mentioned here http://linuxmusicians.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=13993&p=62600&hilit=Bristol+Claudia#p62600.

Is there a way to edit the default startup of apps? Does it even go through the shell? I know I can launch a custom application, but I would really like a quick and easy point and click to start these synths when I'm experimenting.

Sorry if this is addressed somewhere else and I missed it.

Hi, same for me... I have 0.60.11-2

If I copy the command line from claudia launcher and paste in a terminal, it works. If I copy it in a "run custom" launcher with session level 0, it doesn't.

Yes, that's exactly what is not working... the command line I used comes from the claudia generated launcher.

Bristol v.0.60.11-2
I copied the command line in a terminal to get debug informations, but unfortunately it works in that case. Then I thought it was a session problem, that's why I created a "custom" launcher level 0, but it's not working. Jack just says "client xx has disconnected". The bristol window appears in black (no gui), then disappears.

Yes, I may be of some help here. This bug was annoying my head off, just like you, and so I went out to debug what was going on.

It turns out the Bristol synth references libasound.so when launched from Claudia. This file is often symlinked on many Ubuntu distributions, but on my distro (Debian) this was not the case. So here is the solution that worked for me, and will hopefully solve your problem.

1. open a terminal
2. change to your library directory (example below is for 32-bit systems)

Code: Select all

cd /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/

3. check if it contains libasound.so.2.0.0

Code: Select all

ls libasound.so.2.0.0

4. create a symlink from your libasound library file to libasound.so

Code: Select all

sudo ln -s libasound.so.2.0.0 libasound.so


Now your Bristol synths should work from within Claudia.

Ok,
This file is often symlinked on many Ubuntu distributions, but on my distro (Debian) this was not the case. So here is the solution that worked for me, and will hopefully solve your problem.

didn't work for me, but after installing libasound2-dev it's working!

in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/, I had:
-libasound.so.2.0.0
-libasound.so.2 (symlink)
and I added
-libasound.so

libasound2-dev didn't add any libasound* file/symlink.
