I copied a sessions folder from my Linux Desktop (L1) to Google drive and then downloaded the whole folder onto another Linux machine (L2), but when I open the session in L2, Ardour complains that it cannot find the source files (both wav and mid) in the listed folder. Yet they are there, in the “audiofiles” folder.
I tried reselecting the guilty “audiofiles” folder from the drop down menu, to no effect.
I also tried opening the session without the source files then reimporting them, but Ardour actually copies the file in the same folder and appends a suffix to the filenames, so the tracks are still without the proper sources.
Any idea? Everything worked fine on the first desktop. The only thing I can think of is that the audiofiles folder path has spaces.
