None of those effects work for me with Audacity.
I note that those effects are described as "Early beta versions, use with caution", and also that they are VST effects. VST is not well supported on Linux (it is proprietary software, owned by Steinberg).

I've not tested the plug-ins in other software, but you may have better luck with those effects in Ardour.
