please add zenity to the dependencies, otherwise export dialogues will be broken

If anyone does not get its vital.desktop entry installed, I suggest save this as vital.desktop in /usr/share/applications and make your own icon in /usr/share/pixmaps

@abique, the software author doesn't authorize automating downloads from the home website. I just get it from there and host it on github. Besides I think the sha512 hashsum keeps changing everytime you download the package from the home site, which wouldn't work in our case (unless the shasum check is disabled).

I've been on their discord server and they don't seem to have an issue with this so far. I'll take it down if they do.

This package seems wrong.

Why isn't vital downloaded from the official website?

Is it even legal?

Vital 1.5.1 has been out for weeks and this package hasn't been updated.

@joshpetit, vitalium has no standalone unfortunately

You can try this instead - This is essentially the original (vital) with the firebase dependency severed.

@jackreeds after installing distrho-ports what's the method to get vitalium to run as a standalone from that? Thanks :)

For vitalium, install distrho-ports from the official Arch package repository. distrho-ports does not conflict with vital-synth.

The build instruction can be found at fork: maxaudron/vital, and lv2 modified version can be found here. Official repo has missed something, so do following things:

curl -LO -o ./
unzip -d third_party
pushd third_part/VST_SDK
make -j32
sudo make install

Yes, but certain functionality is missing. I don't think it is even compile-ready. It will be like the chrome vs chromium situation.
