linuxsampler lv2 saved presets do not load.

Postby alex stone » Tue Mar 05, 2019 11:09 am

Tim, i think we had this once before.
i create a preset, save it in a specified location (/home/alex/muse-presets).
Muse creates a folder with symlinks to all the gig files loaded, plus manifest files, in /home/alex/.lv2.
I load a new linuxsampler.lv2 instance and select the preset i want.

This error message comes up:

Loading gig file 'file:///home/alex/.lv2/LinuxSampler_LV2_1vl-test.lv2/V1 Effects Preview Instrument.gig'...gig::Engine error: Failed to load instrument, cause: Can't open "file:///home/alex/.lv2/LinuxSampler_LV2_1vl-test.lv2/V1 Effects Preview Instrument.gig": No such file or directory

The directory is there, but Muse/lv2 plugin doesn't seem to recognise it.

If i attempt to use Muse's generic gui to load the preset from a directory window, that fails too. The folder at /home/alex/.lv2 contains no .pre file. (obviously)

Any clues?

Alex.

This is an LV2 problem.

You need the git versions of the lv2 suite including especially lilv
because Dave put a fix in there which I don't think has made it into a release.

Tim, what was the date of the commit by Dave? January 11th?

"Use a clearer name for state directory and improve documentation" ?

Is that what you're referring to?

Tim, thanks for the heads up, that worked, and it was the Jan 11 commit that fixed it.

Onwards and Upwards.

I checked, it was October 1st when Dave notified me of the changes in his git.
But the official lilv release is still at July.

Hmm, that's weird. The version i was using that didn't work was from kxstudio dec242018.

Anyway i've removed all those versions and have Dave's git versions instead.

Hi, just a heads up:

Official Lilv 0.24.6 has been released in November 2019.

It appears to contain the required fixes for this problem, hopefully no more compiling from git.
