Adding VeSTige support in LMMS on Ubuntu 14.04

The Linux Multimedia Studio(LMMS) is one of the widely used synthesizers in the free world. The default installation is straightforward, however, I noticed on my Ubuntu 14.04 64bit machine, the VeSTige plugin(VST) wasn’t loading at all!

The support for 64bit version was luckily found in PPA by IRIE Shinsuke.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:irie/lmms && sudo apt update && sudo apt install -y lmms wine

After installing the packages, one has to create a device node pointing the lmms libraries, this can be done using winecfg command. See the screenshot.

winecfg-lmms

Once done, you may now open your favorite lmms, drag VeSTige from Instrument plugins  to Beat+Baseline Editor and click on VeSTige to load the plugin(dll) file. See the screenshot.

That’s all folks 🙂
