Hi , I am looking for some help with ladspa plugin instalation. I am on a Linux Mint 20 Mate system with Audacity 2.4.2 installed via the Linux Software Manager. I have also installed ladspa plugins from the Linux Software Manager. the files are in the right location @ /usr/lib/ladspa , in Audacity preferences effects the ladspa effects are enabled by default.
as far as I can tell everything is in the right place but none of the plugins are listed in the add/remove plugins “Manage Plugins” dialogue.
I am pretty new to Linux the Audacity documentation for ladspa plugins says Audacity should look in the folder @ /usr/lib/ladspa , but that is not what seems to be happening.
in Windows I would try putting the plugin files into the Audacity Plugins folder but in Linux it is not drag and drop easy so I don’t really know what to try.
the plugin package I installed is listed in the software manager as “Swh-plugins” - Steve Harris’s LADSPA Plugins
I thought I would try the forum in case it is a simple known problem with a simple solution. any help would be appreciated.
