My specs are Debian 9, libgtk 3.22, Gnome 3.22 and I got also a segmentation fault.

And yes sometimes a menu opens and quickly moving and clicking on the menu bar will crash Reaper.

I've given up on using wine-devel on my system because of some problems and I'm using wine-stable which is, much more stable lol.

wine-devel had multiple 60 second timeouts occurring at startup which would throw LinVst into a spin, whereas wine-stable has no startup timeouts on my system.
Great, thanks for all your excellent work!

I have taken your advice and installed Wine Stable. To do that in Fedora 25:

1. Removed the default staging version that is default in Fedora:

sudo dnf remove wine

2. Install the official Wine Repo for Fedora

sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/fedora/25/winehq.repo

3. Install the stable version

sudo dnf install winehq-stable

Everything seems to still be working great, and it does load faster too.

I think it's a great move to go with the stable branch! This will remove a lot of trouble tracking down errors with people using different staging/dev versions. Stable will remain the same for a year, so it's a solid platform for LinVST.

PS I think you have a typo on your release page:

"LinVst compiled on Ubuntu Studio 16.10 with Wine-stablel 2.5"

Wine Stable is at 2.0, it's the staging at 2.5

I think it is caused by this commit.

First I was able to make Reaper crash immediately on opening the menu, now strangely the menu opens. But I can make it crash when I move the mouse on the menu bar, quickly creating and destroying menus.
Hoping so much it's not a Gtk 3.10 only bug...
Thanks -- I think I've fixed this.

Now to get copy/paste properly working on KDE, ugh. sigh.

copy paste on kde should now work, and drag and drop (without previews) too!

Awesome Justin! Copy/cut/paste and drag&drop is working just great!

There is one exception, the editbox when renaming a track, which copies/cuts/paste the track instead.

One thing I can't remember, is drag and drop meant to work from within the media explorer too?

In general you should never use sudo unless you need to do something as root (super user). It might change permissions on files that you need, etc.

Yeah, that requires a reaper update (next build)

Rrrroger that, Jack
Then I have another theory in how I managed to screw up the first time but that theory sux so i'll keep it for myself and just learn from it.
Can't wait to be a Linux super duper user.
Thanks Jack.

Just use sudo when you want to install something, edit a system configuration file, etc. Never when just working as a user with normal programs.

I can confirm that after a new compile of libSwell, I can now install themes in KDE Plasma 5.9.4 by dragging and dropping the ReaperThemeZip file onto REAPER. A minor thing (wasn't too hard to copy them into the .REAPER/ColorThemes folder) but still very cool. Couldn't do that a few days ago

Probably a family/health situation arrived, if it were server maintenance,
it would have been announced, if a server failure, the temporary message
might not be possible. Part of the site still works.

Their facebook page is also down, so we'll all have to wait and see.
Hopefully there's not a funeral to attend to.

Final chance to have a look and give input on my epic (and massively updated) article before I finish it and publish it:

How Linux audio works vs. Windows audio in 2017

http://www.learndigitalaudio.com/wp-...io-in-2017.pdf

Maybe it is too long and I should split it into parts?

I had to learn about vector graphics and SVG to make the diagrams, so I hope they are OK. Will all look fantastic online in HiDPI I hope... future proofed against your new 4k monitors

I predict there will be an explosion of people with basic questions about Linux audio when Linux Reaper comes out, this is my attempt to help people who understand windows audio to move to Linux... all part of my 2017 FUN AND FREEDOM mission! It has taken many days solid work, I hope people get something from it.

The great news is that something called USB class compliment audio interfaces - That is USB Audio Class 2.0 compliant interface.
Manufacturers who make their devices class compliment - The same
Just plug in your class compliment audio interface - And again

Thanks for taking the time to write the article!

Hi David,
I just read your well-written article. I think it's not lengthy at all considering the topic. If you want it to stay that way, please ignore the following ;-)

Except maybe for the typo I found: the plural of DAW is "DAWs", not "DAW's".

Also, Firefox and many other applications can talk directly to ALSA. I think I've read that even Ardour can nowadays. ALSA performs just fine on its own with low latency. It's when you need inter application routing, that's when Jack comes in.

Here comes my PulseAudio rant:

I came back to Linux last year as my frustration with Apple had grown beyond the limit of pain tolerance. I tried several Ubuntu flavours but I settled with Arch in the end, mainly for one reason: It comes without PulseAudio.

PA might work for some for general use. It did not for me. Here are a few fun things I remember:

- On my Thinkpad, no sound would work through the headphones, no matter what I tried in the PA control panel. Without PA, with just ALSA, all system sound (e.g., YouTube through Firefox) was also routed through the headphones without any configuration.

- The PA / Jack bridge consumed about 10% of my cpu cycles idle. Now, with just Jack, it's about 0.something%.

- I would constantly get strange audio artifacts. No xruns but strange hickups nonetheless.

Of course, I did all the usual "audio optimisation magic" suggested online. It didn't help PA.

My conclusion from this was: if you want to do pro audio on Linux you have to disable PA or better: purge it completely. It offered me exactly nothing but only caused problems. I think incorporating Jack into ALSA to achieve something akin to Core Audio in macos would be the most solid long term solution to the still existing audio problems on Linux. Sadly, I doubt this will ever happen.

Having written all that, I want to add that I'm generally very happy with the OS I have now. It is super stable, it doesn't try to be smart but does exactly what I tell it to do, and as soon as Reaper Linux is ready for production, I'm pretty confident that I will have a computer with a wonderful "general purpose" _and_ "pro audio" OS.

PS: Maybe I should try out the alpha version now :-)

Thanks Jack and X2theL! I have made those corrections, cheers! Glad you like it

Regarding pulse. the only bug I ever found was on Fedora 24 that sometimes all the audio stopped, and opening the Gnome audio preferences and clicking on the audio interface made it come back again... weird! It's not done that on Fedora 25.

I would ditch Pulse if I could, but i need sound in other apps, especially Firefox.

Afraid Firefox does not work with ALSA anymore since March 17:

http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/03/f...dio-alsa-linux

I would LOVE to get Firefox outputting to Jack, then I could jam to music videos on Youtube. Seems recently it WAS built in, then out again, gets confusing:

https://linuxmusicians.com/viewtopic.php?t=16567
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=783733

Maybe there is a solution I am not aware of to let other applications get routed to JACK so they can play as well as Reaper... without messing up the latency and creating mass x-runs of course.

I read about Firefox requiring PA, too. Strangely I'm running Firefox 52.02 and I still have sound.

Firefox has been my main browser for many years now. As soon as audio stops working for me I'll switch.

This article explains how to create a loopback device to be able to route ALSA applications to Jack and vice versa:

http://alsa.opensrc.org/Jack_and_Loo...to-Jack_bridge

I haven't attempted that as I'm still using my Mac for "pro audio" ;-)

But all that doesn't help if the whole Linux world seems to be eager to make a buggy software the new standard.
*sigh*

I don't think that pulse is buggy these days, it's perfect for what it is.

That article you linked is 10 years old, and my brain started to freeze half way through reading it I am not investing that much energy to do a simple task, life is too short. There must be a simple 2017 solution to route pulseaudio or alsa into Jack?

I think pulseaudio-module-jack seems like the solution?

https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US...with_JACK.html

Having found that, it is going to the back of the TODO list, must do some actual work LOL

Good luck with it. As I wrote, when I tested it about 6 months ago, I found its performance unacceptable.

It works pretty well and is what I use now days (have tried all the other solutions), I just connect it when I need it. Haven't looked at the code in a long time, but IIRC it doesn't implement a ring buffer which is the recommended way when connecting to jack as a client. This probably means higher dsp load for jack (similar concept to reaper's rt cpu), and possibly occasional xruns.

Are you using Gdk2 by any chance (GDK2=1 set on make)? There is no issue with Gdk3 afaik. The newer stuff needs to be ported to Gdk2 (maybe I'll try my best over the weekend..)

If not what system are you on?

EDIT: Hm should have read the log first.
So the problem indeed seems to be that you are compiling against Gdk2 (just remove GDK2=1 for now if you are able to compile Gdk3).
EDIT2: Double-Doh! It's all in your signature too!

Pushed some more changes to swell, the Z ordering handling should be improved (though not perfect, sigh).

GDK doesn't (or more likely, KDE/Xfce/etc don't) seem to be respecting GDK_WA_X/GDK_WA_Y for the window attributes... sigh. Anybody have any ideas?

Oh also, in case you missed it, you can now select text in the edit boxes...

Thank you, Z-ordering works much better now as far as I could test.

You mean newly created GdkWindows don't get positioned properly? I think this works almost always correct here on Xfce except for the top-level(?) window, the Reaper main window (on restart).
I'm 100% sure you thought about that: move the window immediately after creation. You probably even implemented that, I'm seeing a gdk_window_move_resize() in swell_manageOSwindow() but that does not work here with the main window unless I move it after gdk_window_show() is called: https://github.com/veto-gh/wdl_v/com...ca5f2036cd91b7
Maybe we could add a check for top-level(?) windows too?
Other than that I'm afraid I have no clue.

I saw that, great work! Also it is themeable already, thanks!
Also loving the new application icon

EDIT: I see, the problem is also with file open/save dialogues and my suggestion makes it even worse for these lol. Let's just pretend this never happened..
