[Qutecsound-users] problems with stk opcodes - hopefully solved
Well, I have been
very slow understanding the stk plugins problem... But I think I wrote
now a kind satisfactory work-around (mostly based on ideas of Joachim)
was not an Ubuntu/debian specific situation but the crashes happened
when libstkops.so was installed but RAWWAVE_PATH was not set (like when
using ubuntu Csound installer. Maybe this should take care of setting the environment variable somehow?) - talking about Linux
real problem is probalbly somewhere in Csound code that in some point
gets NULL as the value of the raw_wave path and does not continue from
that point on (the "basic_string::_S_construct null not valid") . I don't know where it happens exactly yet.
the good thing is that I added now a bit of code to CsoundQt that
checks for the RAWWAVE_PATH if libstkops.so is amoing csound plugins.
If it is not set, it tries first to find the raw wave files from /usr/share/stk/rawwaves/
success, it sets necessary environment variable and everything should
be OK: If not found, displays a warning dialog to notify about possible
Now committed to the develop branch.
Please try out, if it works for you!
in some Linux system the rawwaves are isntalled by default to some
other folder than /usr/share/stk/rawwaves/ please let me know! It is
easy to add to the search path in the code.
