CALF effects, they do not work.

Help for Audacity 2.x.x on GNU/Linux.

ImageThis forum is for Audacity 2.x.x on GNU/Linux and Unix-like operating systems.
Please state which version of Linux you are using, the exact three-section version number of Audacity from Help > About Audacity... and whether you installed your distribution's release or daily version of Audacity or compiled Audacity from source code.

Audacity 1.2.x and 1.3.x are obsolete and no longer supported. If you still have those versions, please upgrade at https://www.audacityteam.org/download/.
The old forums for those versions are now closed, but you can still read the archives of the 1.2.x and 1.3.x forums.

I've looked in Ubuntu package search, and I can't find Calf Studio Gear 0.90.0, only the 0.0.60 version (https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keyw ... ection=all).
How do 'normal users' install Calf Studio Gear 0.90.0?

Either via KXStudio repositories or build from source/git. There's a copy'n'paste walk-through on our website.

I've built the plug-is from source, and can reproduce the problem.
When running a debug build of Audacity, I see these errors:

Does that mean anything to you?
Any idea why / how is it seeing the calf plug-ins twice? (and this is only happening with the calf plug-ins)

Great, thanks a lot for the findings. As soon as I'm back from my trip I'll take a closer look.

I pushed some changes to Calf git for the RDF file generation which will most likely not influence this issue. I also tested some other hosts (ecasound, carla, lv2file, ardour) which are all able to launch calf plugins.

I don't see the duplicates you posted above on my machine. Is it possible that things are mixed up somehow in your /usr/local/lib/lv2/calf.lv2/ ?

I don't think so, but not impossible. I previously had the older Calf plug-ins installed, and told Symantic to do a "complete uninstall". Then, after rebooting, built and installed the new Calf plug-ins, which appeared to go smoothly without a glitch. I've (briefly) tested with Ardour 4, and they appear to work fine.

I do a bit of C++ programming, but I'm out of my depth with this, and unfortunately within our small team of developers, there are currently no Linux specialists.
I think it would be terrific for Audacity / Linux users, if these plug-ins worked in Audacity. To a lesser extent it would probably be good for Calf too. If you'd like to talk to the Audacity developers about the Calf plug-ins, the mailing list is here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/audaci ... city-devel

Yep, I'm willing to help you guys out, probably I'll get some information on the devel list to lower the getting-started-hurdle, thanks for the hint/link.
