Looks like w2lvst got moved from git+https//github.com/usrmusicman/ArchStudioUtils.git to git+https://github.com/usrmusicman/LinVST-Linker,git by the maintainer of w2lvst.

It just needs the source changed to the new repo on line 13 of the PKGBUILD, and the install command on line 25 updated to install -Dm755 $srcdir/LinVST-Linker/w2lvst/w2lvst3 $pkgdir/usr/bin/w2lvst3.

Once that is done, You can install plugins by running w2lvst3 ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Common\ Files/VST3/. Obviously, you'll have to point it where your vst files live, but once you do that, you will find your plugins all nicely located in $HOME/.vst3/windows-bridged/ where most DAWS will find them by default.

I would have tried to submit an update to this; however, I am too dumb to figure out how to do it. Sorry for the lame instructions.

I'm trying to install but got this error:

install: cannot stat '/home/user/.cache/yay/linvst3/src/ArchStudioUtils/w2lvst3': No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting... error making: %!s(func() string=0x563ce2014bb0)

I think the ArchStudioUtils git maintainer deleted the w2lvst2 and w2lvst3 files.

@usrmusicman: This PKGBUILD only repackages a binary release.

You need to rename it to linvst3-bin if you're not building from source.

Version structure hopefully should upgrade now.

Please adjust version structure, 1.7 is considered a downgrade from 1.66

I thought it is eaiser to look at linvst2 as the VST2 Support variant and linvst3 is the VST3 variant. I like my w2lvst3 script more as it automatically does everything in the current directory to convert the vst3 file to so. Also, my script makes a link to the .so file and puts it in the $HOME/.vst directory for all mainstream daws to pickup automatically. You can easily create a nautilus link to the script or add the script to thunar's script manager for use that way. If you reall want it though just add this line inside the package() statement. cp $srcdir/LinVst3-1.6-Debian-Stretch/convert/linvst3convert* $pkgdir/usr/bin Hope this helps.

what is the difference between all the linvst and linvst3? Also how does it work? I can't find linvstconvert.
