@SpotlightKid, damn we forgot about linking xcb!

I guess we will take care of linking properly in the next release. Thanks.

@stefano_orastron: I updated the package. I also added a patch to the Linux build script to properly link the VST3 shared lib. With this, the plugin loads properly in Carla and Ardour.

New version that is compatible with Reaper and Bitwig just released.

When it comes to Ardour, it seems that it will refuse to load any plugin that has been overwritten, but other than that we see no issues.

W.r.t. Carla... We couldn't manage to load a single native VST3 plugin.

Hello, one of the two authors here. We confirm there are issues with Reaper and Bitwig at least, and we'll try to solve them by the end of next week and make a new release.

@grawlinson: To be honest: no, not really.

It seems to work here in Ardour 6. But I had cases, where, when I reload the project, the plugin sometimes does not load. I can't determine a pattern yet.

Also, it does not load in Carla, even when trying to load it directly with /usr/lib/carla/carla-bridge-native.

It would probably be best to open an upstream issue.

It compiles successfully, but doesn't appear in the VST3 hosts that I've tried: bitwig & reaper.

Can you confirm that this actually works?
