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.
