Hi I have built and installed ardour without problems many times.

I am sure this is my problem and not ardour.

The build was good and the install good.

I used "scons VST=1 FREESOUND=1 LV2=1 FFT_Analysis=1" as I always do.

Typing ardourvst in a term yields the following.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Assuming you have installed Ardour in /usr/local, fader_belt.png should be in /usr/local/share/ardour2/icons.
Make sure you have read permission in that directory and the ones above, and that the files exist.

The ladspa errors are benign and due to ardourvst not being able to use libm (the math lib) when opening the plugins.
I don't know if it's fixed in SVN but Paul has mentioned this in one post here so he obviously knows about it.
One workaround is to recompile those and include -lm to the llinker args in the Makefile

Thanks peder.

Read permission was the ticket.

But now after I have played or open a session and go to close the session it does nothing.

I have to force quit or kill ardourvst. It will not close as it should.

Welcome to just one of the many reasons why I am very, very reluctant to declare ardourVST "supported".
