After installing ardour 5.11.0 I don't get the gui with guitarix LV2 plugins. I can use generic controls. Any idea what could be wrong? It did work in Ardour 5.5.

Where did you get the Guitarix plugins? Where did you get Ardour?

I also have this problem. Ardour and the Guitarix LV2 plugins are installed from the KXStudio repos following the instructions here: http://kxstudio.linuxaudio.org/Repositories

My self-compiled 5.11 on Ubuntu 14.04 shows the correct lv2 GUI for the guitarix-0.35.2 Gx plugins.

Do other LV2 plugins show the proper GUI or are you only seeing the generic ones there as well?
Maybe KX forgot to compile Ardour with the proper lv2 ui libs (suil probably)?

Note that only the Gx plugins are LV2 GUI ones.
There are plugins like "Guitarix Amp" and "Guitarix Stereo Flanger" that are old LADSPA plugins with generic UIs

KX doesn't compile Ardour, they are stripped Ardour bundles wrapped in a Deb package.

Bumping this as there are still problems with the 5.12 64-bit build via ardour.org/download.html

Starting with a fresh install of Ubuntu Studio 17.04 (Ardour 5.5.0 ; guitarix 0.35.2-2 ; glibmm 2.50.0-1) the LV2 GUIs are working.

After completely removing the distro version of Ardour and installing from Ardour-5.12.0-x86_64.run the following error appears:
[ERROR]: failed to instantiate LV2 GUI

Note that this time, I'm not running with the KX-Studio repos.
Any further suggestions on fixing this are welcome, but you might need to explain like i'm 5!

glibmm 2.50.0-1

This is the same problem as the one outlined in the bug report above. The distro version of ardour will be build against this version of glibmm but the official ardour binaries use an older version. If this is coming to ubuntu in the future then it looks like the ardour team are going to have to address this problem at some point.
