How to choose what wine prefix to use with Carla?

Post by srjosepz »

I have some windows VST plugins installed in a second wine prefix that isn't the default one, because I have one prefix for games, one for music production, etc. How can I config Carla to use the right one?

I am getting the guiboot error on all the vst, because it seems to be searching the wrong prefix. If I execute directly the standalone exe applications files with the right prefix with wine, all works fine.

Running your DAW with
WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix /path/to/dawexecutable
doesn't work?

Or, use yabridge

"It is also possible to use yabridge with multiple Wine prefixes at the same time."

That's the idea. Preceding the Reaper executable with "WINEPREFIX=/path" just sets the environment variable WINEPREFIX to /path. You'll not run anything with wine.
