running updpkgsums in the PKGBUILD's folder seems to fix the problem.

LinVst 4.5.1 doesn't appear to exist anymore and I believe 4.5.2 is getting fetched, which has a different checksum and is therefor failing the validity check:

==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Elmario commented on 2021-06-20 14:07 (UTC)

OK: osxmidi changed the filename, so the AUR is working again, nothing left to do here! :)

Hello! Currently the update/setup doesn't work, because the link has changed:

this does not exist:

But this does:

Yeah thanks for taking over @silksow! I switched to using yabridge myself and no longer have time to maintain the linvst packages but very cool to see others pick it up.

Nocifer commented on 2021-03-22 09:16 (UTC)

Hello @silksow, I see that you've claimed maintainership of this package along with linvstmanager-git. Seeing as @madskjeldgaard has apparently also orphaned the rest of the linvst packages (linvst3-bin, linvst-x-bin & linvst3-x-bin), would you consider becoming their maintainer as well?

Btw, in this latest release there is a small disparity between the PKGBUILD (where the version is reported as 4.0) and .SRCINFO (where it's reported as 4.0.0).

@slavikator I see your issue on GitHub, thanks to you for your advice to downgrade to 6.2.

slavikator commented on 2021-03-04 14:54 (UTC)

Had to downgrade wine from 6.3 to 6.2 to get it to work.

slavikator commented on 2021-03-04 11:10 (UTC)

On fresh Arch install, this doesn't work. Vst plugin is trying to load, it times out and doesn't appear in the list of plugins. Tried it on Manjaro and it works like expected. How can I find out what's wrong with the Arch installation?

madskjeldgaard commented on 2020-12-09 08:39 (UTC)

@kflak @silksow

Whooops. Thanks for reporting. Should be fixed now :)

kflak commented on 2020-12-09 08:33 (UTC)

Validity check fails for me too...

silksow commented on 2020-12-08 22:41 (UTC)

Thank you so much for maintaining - 3.2 fails MD5 validity check for me

madskjeldgaard commented on 2020-11-06 10:38 (UTC)

@daniel.appelt thanks for pointing that out. Had forgotten to update checksum on this one. It should be correct now.

daniel.appelt commented on 2020-11-06 10:32 (UTC)

For me, the package does not build. The MD5 sum does not seem to be correct. Could you please check?

madskjeldgaard commented on 2020-10-10 21:18 (UTC)

@eathtespagheti sorry, just seeing this now. Looks like I didn't need to do anything for the merge request. Let me know if otherwise.

eathtespagheti commented on 2020-10-01 10:36 (UTC)

Since this package it's basically the same as linvst-bin I've submitted a merge request

FabioLolix commented on 2020-08-30 20:29 (UTC)

Hello, making this kind of duplicate pkgbuild is not welcome, upload a 'linvst' pkgbuild that build from stable release and link it on linvst aurweb page, then sort out things with linvst maintainer

eathtespagheti commented on 2020-02-01 16:19 (UTC)

Hi I've updated to 2.8, check the new PKGBUILD here

teetest commented on 2019-06-20 14:35 (UTC)

Missing "linvst-stable.install" file. I downloaded it from prev commit. And it works.

deezid commented on 2019-02-28 15:51 (UTC)

Thanks. Works as expected! :)

capoeira commented on 2019-02-24 18:28 (UTC)

thanks. I was looking in /usr/share/vst. the path wasn't in the tool (might be because I had anther version installed before)

The dummy '' file is located at '/usr/share/linvst/'. Use the 'linvstconvert' GUI utility to convert your .dll plugins.

Sangeppato commented on 2019-02-24 15:19 (UTC)

@capoeira the file is located at "usr/share/linvst/". You can use the gui linvstconvert tool to convert your .dll files, it should already be in your path

capoeira commented on 2019-02-24 00:56 (UTC)

sorry. but where do I find
