This is my first post, my apologies in advance if I break the forum’s etiquette
using ubuntu 20.04 LTS
ardour version 6.9.0
plugin in question: cardinal (https://github.com/DISTRHO/Cardinal)
So I did something quite dumb. I downloaded the wrong binaries of cardinal (arm64 instead of x86)
copied the files over to ~/.lv2 directory and tried bringing the plugins (there are three) into ardour. It didn’t work, so I quickly corrected my mistake by downloading the proper binaries and installing per the installation instructions (ln -s $(pwd)/*.lv2 ~/.lv2/). restarted ardour and re-scanned the plugins a bunch of times. one of the Cardinal plugins errors out, the other two are fine (see image). My suspicion is that when trying to install the wrong binaries somehow it left the plugin manager in a bad state, is there a cache or anything similar that can be cleared? Perhaps it’s another issue?
thanks for reading this, and thanks in advance for any insight you might be able to provide.
