Installing effects

I work in Ardour on Mandriva Linux,64bit,Intel Pentium…
How to install caple effects.?
Installations depend on the version of Linux(Distro)?
I have 2 pc,with Mandriva Linux 32bit and Mandriva Rosa Marathon 64bit.
The Ardour version is the same,but i have different effects on the two pc…!!!
So,if i change Mandriva Rosa with Mandriva Linux,is no big deal,but i have for example “Autotalent”,a great effect but…only in Rosa!?
What can I do?
Thanks in advance.GS.


The recommendations are a bit out of date.
