Ok so... having compiling issues with ArdourVST 2.18 when compiling with

# scons VST=1 FREESOUND=1 GTK=1 SLV2=1

output is.....( after thousands of lines of compiling code)

libs/ardour/vst_plugin.cc:33:27: fatal error: glibmm/string.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
scons: *** [libs/ardour/vst_plugin.os] Error 1
scons: building terminated because of errors.

------------------
I have installed (to my knowledge) all required packages and compiled glib and gtk from source.

Any help would be much appreciated. I've been banging my head against a wall for days over this......

Thanks

Instead of compiling a very old version of Ardour, why not just run a pre-compiled version which you can download here:

actually, he really did not say what version he was trying to build. "2.18" is not any version of ardour that i recognize.

and to be fair, we don't make VST-enabled builds available. this may change with ardour3 (not sure yet).
