Hi all,

I'm trying to compile the OMF tool thats included in source code as mentioned in this post:

but I'm getting this error:

g++ -o omftool omftool.o loader.o -L../../build/default/libs/pbd -lpbd -lsqlite3 -lxml2 -lsndfile
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpbd
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [omftool] Error 1

Can any one help me? I think I need to edit the make file to point to the correct pbd location but I'm not a coder so don't really know where to start. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Ignore it. It is not maintained, generated only ardour 2.x sessions and fails to work on many/most OMF inputs. It was based on some Reaper code that I didn't realize till I got it mostly working was known to be completely unreliable.

If you want to handle OMF files, try AATranslator.
