Juced Plugins Crashing Under Renoise Linux


If your computer throws a wobbly trying to get the VSTs @ http://code.google.com/p/juced/ trying to work (specifically when loading the GUI) under Renoise linux try this -

  • Press Alt-F2 (assuming Gnome as WM, if not load up a terminal emu instead)

  • Type - gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

  • Don’t get a text editor? Try sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf, or try get the file open under root via your preferred method.

  • Comment out the following lines with a hash e.g.

# Section "Extensions"  
# Option "MIT-SHM" "no"  
# EndSection  
  • Restart X11, either by logging out of restarting

  • Launch Renoise, open the VST, hopefully tweak…

Can’t actually vouch for the stability of your system by performing this step. The Intel drivers on my Ubuntu 9.04 are a steaming pile, so much so they required upgrading - but my PC hasn’t fallen over yet and hopefully this is of use to someone else.



EDIT - In retrospect this probably shouldn’t be in tips and tricks, but somewhere techie instead. Sorry.
