I’m trying to install Redux for 64-bit Renoise 3.0.1 on Linux.
I defined an environment var VST_PATH, placed the Redux files (the 32bit and 64bit folders) in that folder, updated my resourced my profile files, and loaded Renoise.
I get a popup message with this:
Failed to initialize the audio plugin server: Failed to resolve the font file for font DejaVu Sans.
I have DejaVu Sans on my machine. It’s also part of the Renoise 3.0.1 installation.
I have no other VSTs or plugins.
To be sure that the message came from Redux I closed Renoise, cleared my VST_PATH folder, and started Renoise again.
It gave me a message about a previous issue and said it would not be loading Redux (though the Redux files were no longer in the VST folder).
I closed Renoise, then reopened it. No messages, all looked good.
I closed Renoise and copied just the 64bit folder contents to my VST_PATH folder (since I’m only running 64 bit Renoise)
I get no error messages, but I see no sign of Redux.
The Redux quick start manual says “When launched, the plugin will be in Compact Mode, …” but says nothing about how you actually launch it. There’s nothing to let you know if you’ve installed Redux correctly.
I just checked my Renoise log, and found this:
VstPlugs: Trying to instantiate /home/james/VST/64bit/renoise_redux.so
VstPlugs: Instantiate FAILED (failed to open the DLL: ‘/lib/libm.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.15’ not found (required by /home/james/VST/64bit/renoise_redux.so)’) !!!
But there was not error message show to me. I found nothing on the Redux Web page mentioning system requirements.
Renoise 3.0.1 runs just fine on my admittedly older Ubuntu (10.10) so I assumed Redux would too.
I understand (i.e. gotten used to) not being able to run more recent software because of assorted system library requirements, so if I really can’t run Redux on my version of Ubuntu I can live with it.
However: Is there a way for me to get this to work (aside from updating my OS)?
Can these system requirements by made known on the Redux sales/download page?
I suggest adding a decent error message for such Redux loading errors as well.
