Kontakt 7 Full - black screen issue

Post by Linux_Voivod »

Hi there,

Maybe some of you can help me out. I installed Kontakt 7 and get a black screen in Reaper, running yabridge 4.02, wine 6.03, wine-staging 7.20.

On NI's website it says:
KONTAKT 7 requires a graphics card that supports Direct 3D 11.1 (Feature Level 11_0) rendering or above. If your graphics card does not support this requirement, KONTAKT will open with a black window and will not function.

How to do that Direct 3D 11.1 (Feature Level 11_0) thing? (assuming that this will solve the black screen issue)

Maybe DVXK is what you need?

Thanks for the suggestion.

Not yet working, but running the setup gives me this: please install wine-development as wine-stable does not currently support DXVK.
I'll get to that first

The installation of dxvk leads to yabridge-host.exe errors making reaper crash when I want to start Kontakt 7 or EZ drummer 3

Ugh, sorry about that! I don't use it myself, but just found it while googling around for 'linux "Direct 3D 11.1"'.

This guy made it work.
On a question he said: "I use wine. I install add-ons and extensions through playonlinux and winetricks. There are sometimes problems with graphics, especially in new versions of programs." ("add-ons and extensions" ?).
