Too bad Ardour won't display Guitarix's plugins UI anymore, I've just updated guitarix to version 0.37.3 by building it from source, and yeah it's true, unfortunately.

When you ain't use ardour6, and I guess you ain't, but using ardour5, it's more likely you fail into this issue:

Problem is that ardour, when download from ardour.org or from kxstudio, use older gtk/glib library's then the ones installed on your system.
So when you build guitarix yourself, you need to build ardour as well, in order to be able to use the guitarix LV2 plugin UI's.
Or, when using ardour from KxStudio, you must use guitarix from KxStudio as well, in order to use the UI's in ardour.

Alternative you could export the guitarix LV2 plugs with carla and use the exported versions, which then use the UI's as a external UI.
On the road again.

I fully support ardour's decision here, this is really showing being "courageous" ;)
It wont be a rose-garden. :lol:

never mind. it's going to reach its EOL just in half a year. and everyone should be aware of it.

at the moment, 16.04 is super stable, so there are no real reasons not to migrate to it.

and 18.04 will become really usable in just a few months too (as it always happens with any Ubuntu LTS release)
