Hi,

when I try to change the connection of a track or bus (i.e. in the "track/bus inspector"), I don't know how!

In ardour 0.99.x I just clicked on an available connection and added it this way. In ardour2 (at least beta7.1 and beta8) I click and nothing happens.

Did I miss a change in the control of ardour2?

Thanks,
Benjamin

wow, idont think that you missed anything, but on my machine i have this issue too since some months, and i dont find anyone else, who can report this!
or, did i misunderstood you?
are you able to make connections in the channel strip of the mixer window?
i can open the mixer, than click on channel-input -- edit -- and i get the "input-connect" window, but clicking on the availibel ports, just nothing happens.
the same with you??

cheers,
doc

hi benjamin, i just got some help in the irc, and finally it works for me again.
looks like a workaround.
try starting ardour from commandline with:

LANG=en_US.UTF-8 ardourvst

or

LANG=en_US.UTF-8 ardour

and report the result.

cheers,

hi,
in rev1130 this problem is solved.

it was having to do with some language situation, but works now for the german keyboard again.

cheers,

ok, but how you tell ardour to use clearlooks?
i have clearlooks in:

$ locate clearlooks

/usr/lib/ardour2/engines/libclearlooks.so
/usr/local/lib/gtk-2.0/2.4.0/engines/libclearlooks.la
/usr/local/lib/gtk-2.0/2.4.0/engines/libclearlooks.so

but starting ardour i get this warning:

...
(ardour_vst.exe.so:3733): Gtk-WARNING **: Im Modulpfad »clearlooks« konnte keine
Themen-Engine gefunden werden,
...

means like: " the theme-engine could not be found in the module-path"?!

any idea?

cheers,
doc
