[SOLVED] No GUI GX pluguin LV2 in Carla

Postby Shupacabras » Wed May 09, 2018 3:33 pm

Hi all
I try to open plugins gx lv2 in carla
I get error in gui
log message:

Code: Select all

Carla assertion failure: "fLibFilename.isNotEmpty()" in file CarlaBridgeFormat.cpp, line 107
Failed to load UI binary, error was:
(null)

I'm missing something?

S.O. Kubuntu 18.04 amd64

Translated it means "missing file" when I remember right.
Maybe you need to rescan your plugs?

I cannot reproduce this..
are you able to run gx plugins with their GUIs in jalv.gtk?

How did you install carla, and the gx plugins?

@tramp this specific error is about the path to the UI binary being empty.
So perhaps gx plugins were installed without UI support.

GxPlugs could be build in two fashions, support MOD UI, or, support GTK UI.
When build with MOD UI support, no GTK UI is mention in a ttl file, nor elsewhere, so it will be for Carla, just a plug without GUI, I suppose. When build with GTK GUI, well the GUI library is installed in the bundle and mentioned in the ttl file.

I ain't understand what you mean by "the path to the UI binary being empty", if it means there is non path given, then, in case were GxPlugs been build with MOD UI support, that is true, and I ain't understand how that could be a assertion failure (plugs don't necessary needs a GUI, or?) If it means there is a path given, but no file found (eg. file missing, it may be a bug in my makefile)

However, I guess we've simply a misconfiguration here which could be solved by rescan the plugin folders.

everything installed from kx repos

I will investigate jalv

I drag this problem from 17.10
I install ubuntu and the first thing I do is
install dependencies
and compile Ardor
I install some packages manually
as the case of libglibmm2.4-1v5

I will try everything again without compiling

Sorry for my awful english

Sorry, I was wrong
add-ons that I can not open belong to the guitarix-lv2 package
only generic interface is shown
here "qtractor log"

Code: Select all

suil error: Unable to open UI library /usr/lib/lv2/gx_w20.lv2/gx_w20_gui.so (libgxw.so.0: can not open file of shared object: File or directory does not exist)

guitarix-lv2 package does not come from kxstudio, it comes from debian.
I have not synced the kxstudio package with the debian one, so there might be conflicts with the upgrade.

Remove guitarix-lv2 and make sure to install all updates.
(I will push an update to the kx repos now that makes guitarix-lv2 being removed automatically...)
