So, now I've got Ardour 3.1 running (Along with my MIDI controller). Despite having downloaded a few LV2 plugins, Ardour only detects a handful (from what I can gather, those in the /usr/lib/dssi folder). Any ideas? Should I copy the other plug-ins (all .so files I believe) to that location? and if so, how?

Is this about Ubuntu? –  Richard Aug 11 '13 at 2:06
I'm running Ubuntu 12.04. I assume it is because, though related to Ardour, it's a matter of "How do I copy the Linux VST Files to /usr/lib/dssi?" –  user182929 Aug 12 '13 at 0:10
