Linux Vst Path...


(Rory) #1

Renoise finds all the plugins found in VST_PATH when I start renoise from the terminal. If I start it from the Applications menu it doesn’t see any of them? Is there a quick fix for this? I would rather not have to fire it up from the terminal each time. Thanks.

Just make sure you keep your VST’s in /home/your_user/.vst

You can also create a symlink to your current folder like this:

ln -s /home/your_user/path/to/vsts ~/.vst

Thanks Suva. I don’t want to keep all of my VSTs inside ~/.vst so I opted for the symlink solution. Works fine now.

You can set VST_PATH each login in your ~/.bash_profile.

Try adding this at the end of .bash_profile in your desired user’s home folder:

export VST_PATH="/blah/bla/vst"  

logout, login again and you should have correct vst path

You should also be able to set this globally but how it is done depends on your distribution.

I downloaded an older version of Renoise awhile back on an Asus, I never opened it, I need to delete it if I donate my Asus.

Where is Renoise located ? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I use Mandriva with the dssi-vst stuff. My vst folder is created by the dssi_vst installation in ~/plugins/win32-vst/ and Renoise finds it perfectly.
The ~/.bash_profile thing would be another sollution.

@00.1: my renoise has an uninstall script in /usr/local/share/renoise-/

try to type “locate renoise”, should show you all related by name files (it if Linux), if windows, use search…

SUPER USEFUL!
