gcc5 repos

i’ve hit this problem before and found out i had not enabled the gcc5 repos … well - my HDD crashed and i’ve had to reinstall Ubuntustudio (17.04) from scratch. I’ve done as I’m sure i did before, following these instructions: http://kxstudio.linuxaudio.org/Repositories but am unable to get guitarix plugins to work this time.

Preparing to unpack .../guitarix_2%3a0.35.6+git20170910v5_amd64.deb ... Unpacking guitarix (2:0.35.6+git20170910v5) over (0.35.2-2) ... dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/guitarix_2%3a0.35.6+git20170910v5_amd64.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/libgxw.so.0.1', which is also in package libgxw0 0.35.2-2 dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe) Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/guitarix_2%3a0.35.6+git20170910v5_amd64.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) Any help would be most appreciated, thanks

… running Ubuntu Studio 17.10, Ardour 5.11.4

… i installed Ardour from https://community.ardour.org/download and the error persists:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/guitarix_2%3a0.35.6+git20170910v5_amd64.deb: trying to overwrite ‘/usr/lib/libgxw.so.0.1’, which is also in package libgxw0 0.35.2-2

I think you need to remove the version provided by the distribution first, as it’s interfering:

$ sudo apt remove guitarix
$ sudo apt autoremove

Does the original version not work though? You seem to already have a relatively recent version of the package. If you want to update that to a newer version, you can just run sudo apt upgrade.

solved, sort of: completely removed then reinstalled from the zesty repos (0.35.2-2) … the latest version available is 0.35.6 but this seems to conflict with libgxwmm0

well it was fixed - I added one of the plugin packages and now i’m getting:
[ERROR]: failed to instantiate LV2 GUI
Gonna stop pulling hair out and try again tomorrow.
