How to install jcgui?

Postby LinMusGuy » Fri Jun 21, 2019 8:29 pm

I like to install this:

https://community.linuxmint.com/software/view/jcgui

But it is not in my repositories (Linux Mint 17). How can I install it?

Configuration fails, it goes wrong here:

Code: Select all

Checking for jack >= 0.109.1             : Package "jack (>= 0.109.1)" could not be found or the found version is too old.

Now what do I do?

Nothing. The chance that you can upgrade jack to a higher version is nil. It might, however, mean that you've got Jack1 installed instead of Jack1 (jack1's version is "below zero", jack 2 is > 1.9).

Anyway, I wouldn't bother. Don't break a working system for a utility. :)

Thanks! The reason I asked this question is because I want to have at least one convolver to play with impulse responses. Now I already installed jconvolver but its hard to understand (for me at least) without a GUI. Perhaps there is another alternative?

I do not know what a convolver is, could you explain?

A convolver is a program that is capable of computing the convolution of two signals. For convolution see:

Not knowing waht a convolver is I did a search in Carla and some came up:
  • Impusle Convolver by Steve Harris (i.e. from the Steve Harris LADSPA plugins)
  • Convolution Reverb by Cabbage Audio (from the Cabbage Plugins package)
  • LV2 Convolution Stereo by Robin Gareus (?)

I've just built this from Git with the Latest Jack2. It recognised Jack2 no problem, and built successfully.

If you're not familiar with ./waf, it's easy to get going.

alex$ ./waf configure
then

alex$ ./waf

it will build, then

alex$ ./waf install (as root, so on an Ubuntu or Debian based system, you'd use Sudo. i.e. alex$ sudo ./waf install and put in your password )


That will install into /usr/local/bin.

if you want to install into /usr/bin, then add the prefix to the configure stage.

alex$ ./waf configure --prefix=/usr

(All the alex$ are my command line. The actual command comes after that.)

See the README in the jc_gui directory for these details.

Alex.


NOTE: Make sure you have all the Jack-dev files installed for your current version. It won't compile without them.

For Jack I get:

Code: Select all

jackd -V
jackdmp version 1.9.12 tmpdir /dev/shm protocol 8


But configuration still fails. What are the Jack-dev files you are referring to?

Do you have something like libjack-jackd2-0, and libjack-jackd2-dev installed?

Well - I have cjgui installed now. :D I had to install some other files along the way, just as you said. I will see how it works later. Thank you very much for the tips!

Thanks! I see them in Carla now. But they seem quite limited programs.

Glad to have learned that jcgui can be compiled from source!

I am still struggling with compiling from source, but sometimes I succeed. It's more luck than wisdom. :mrgreen:

Is there a good book on compiling from source? I always prefer to know what I am doing...
