Carla does not find windows vst

Postby tavasti » Sat Jun 30, 2018 2:42 pm

Hi!

After getting stuck on using VST on lmms, tried carla. Loading single vst works with carla-git (for some vst), but scanning does not, none of the windows VSTs appear on the list. And for 'carla' without git, even loading windows vst with carla-single does not work.

Tried running /usr/lib/carla/carla-discovery-win64.exe vst ~/vst (and also win32 version, siminar results)

And getting plenty of like this:
err:wincodecs:PngEncoder_CreateInstance Failed writing PNG because unable to find libpng12.so.0
fixme:ole:CoCreateInstanceEx no instance created for interface {00000103-a8f2-4877-ba0a-fd2b6645fb94} of class {27949969-876a-41d7-9447-568f6a35a4dc}, hres is 0x80004005
err:menubuilder:convert_to_native_icon error 0x80004005 creating bitmap encoder


On Carla Refresh window it shows carla-discovery-win32 but no win64 althou both are present.

This all happens in Ubuntu 18.04.

Installed carla packages:

ii carla 2:1.2.4-1kxstudio2 amd64 audio plugin host
ii carla-bridge-linux32:i386 2:1.9.8+git20180628v i386 audio plugin host (linux32 bridge)
ii carla-bridge-linux64 2:1.9.8+git20180628v amd64 audio plugin host (linux64 bridge)
ii carla-bridge-win32 2:1.9.8+git20180625 amd64 carla win32 bridge
ii carla-bridge-win64 2:1.9.8+git20180625 amd64 carla win64 bridge
ii carla-bridge-wine32:i386 2:1.9.8+git20180625 i386 carla win32 bridge (wine DLL)

Ok, fixed those libpng errors, installing old package: https://askubuntu.com/questions/966757/ ... -for-17-10

And sure, I was calling discovery with wrong arguments, it expects to get dll filen, not directory :oops:

Now I got carla scanning win32 vst's but none of them work, on adding getting 'Plugin has crashed' error.

Does kxstudio carla win vst work for someone in Ubuntu 18.04 ?
