• Unable to install ladish


    I’m a fresh newbee arh linux user
    On my antergos distribution I try to install ladish to manager music production sessions.
    Linux protes 3.19.2-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Mar 18 16:21:02 CET 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    I’m running gnome-shell with version : GNOME Shell 3.14.3
    In the package manager GUI I get the following :
    ==> Downloading ladish PKGBUILD from AUR…
    x ladish.install

    Is anyone maintaining this package?

    I’m after new releases and wrote the page over ladish.org, but left it orphaned so you are free to adopt or improve it, if you wish.

    if anyone is having problems getting this to compile. before installing this package make sure you install libgnomecanvasmm and libgnomecanvas. maybe the maintainer could update the build. A system with the gnome shell desktop installed may not have these packages by default in 3.10

    ladish.org has been down for some time, are there any alternatives for the PKGBUILD?

    Does anyone can help me in getting through this installation. I would like to use ladish for the KXStudio Claudia Tool

    I’m not familiar with audio editing software, but from what I can tell it appears that Ladish is no longer maintained upstream. I did find two alternatives that might work for you:



    I hope it helps. Cheers!

  • It’s a bit weird that ladish is heavily used in KXStudio (which I abandoned due to stability issues. in fact I decided to go for Antergos to create my music production distro)
    Sad that Ladish is not working in Antergos. Could it be that KXStudio made a fork of the original project which seems not to be maintained any more?

  • That’s a possiblity, yes. Try installing it with this:

    yaourt -S ladish-fixed-git --no-confirm

    Let me know how it goes!
