@all: I'm aware this package is out-of-date. dexed >= 0.9.5 requires JUCE 6.x to build, which Arch does not yet provide. When it does, dexed will be eventually be moved into the community repo, which is now possible because VST2 support was droppped.

So this AUR package will probably not be updated anymore. If you want the latest dexed, you can use the dexed-git package. Be aware, though, that it drops the VST2 version and provides a VST3 plugin instead.

Notice: the updated package version (0.9.4-4), which I put out last week, now has a functioning plug-in and stand-alone version again!

@io7m: hmm, that's odd, I get an immediate segfault. I'll try to contact via e-mail, maybe we can sort this out.

I am using JACK, yes. The version I built from GitHub (as opposed to this AUR package) says:

$ /usr/lib/carla/carla-bridge-native vst build/Dexed.so Dexed
libjack.so.0 loaded sucessfully!
JUCE v5.2.1

The instrument comes up and I can play notes, load patches, etc. When I close the window, I do see a pile of JUCE assertion errors, but these have always been there as far as I'm aware.

@io7m: are you using JACK? have you tried the carla command I specified in the Github issue? The command assumes that you have installed the plugin version you want to test under /usr/lib/vst. If you want to test without installing, use:

/usr/lib/carla/carla-bridge-native vst build/Dexed.so Dexed

Suspect I may be missing something incredibly obvious, but if I clone the official Dexed GitHub repository (specifically, git commit 73a266dd70e58e7def14a52bf2a53b5486d083dc) and run:

$ cd Builds/Linux
$ make

... the build succeeds and I get a working VST plugin. I don't use the standalone version. I don't see the JUCE error and I don't seem to get the segfault noted in the GitHub ticket...

Unfortunately I'm stuck on this. I opened an issue about the underlying issue upstream: https://github.com/asb2m10/dexed/issues/132

io7m commented on 2018-05-25 20:05

'ello. Any progress on this?

SpotlightKid commented on 2018-05-02 08:40

@io7m: I was finally able to reproduce the problem building in a chroot. Now to find the cause and a solution ... stay tuned.

I've tried but I'm having trouble compiling juce in the container. I need to research this more thoroughly.
