Linux, Windows VST and wine

Write guides and how-tos about LMMS for other members.
Not sure if this the right place to post this, but I wanted to share something.

I am on openSUSE tumbleweed, and to keep it simple, this means I get ALLOT of updates.

One of those updates is wine.

Because of all the issues related to wine, I will tell what should happen, and how you should let wine do his thing.

I am pretty sure this is not opensuse specific but for all Linux distro.

The Fist time you start lmms, you see wine config running,
( or maybe the first time you use an vst)

Let wine do his thing. After this wine might come with a message, that wine mono is not installed.
Click accept so wine will install wine mono.

Then LMMS is ready to go,

Today after a wine update I loaded an LMMS project I am working on, and boom, wine config, and then wine telling me wine mono was not installed. So I let wine install it.

When the project loaded LMMS complained about not being able to load some vst.
I listened to the project and some vst were not working.

I then did not save the project and quitted lmms.
Then started the same project and all was fine. :P

Computer logic , don't ask me, I only work here.

The part were it does get confusing is that I am 100% sure, I already had wine mono installed.
I decided to not argue with wine though, and let it install wine mono.

What I suspect is that wine mono does not really get installed, but some links get fixed, at least in my specific case. :)

When I install wine on opensuse I always also install wine mono.

From my package manager:
Wine mono = A .NET replacement for use by Wine.

Good stuff!
Especially in relation to the warnings about staged wine destroying output!
I would like to add this in wiki -Is that ok?
Off course ;)

Hey, thanks for all of that info Gps.
This will come in handy, for when I use lmms on Linux one day. :)
And bear put it on the wiki, nice. 8-)
I'm not sure if this is the correct thread for this, but I have lmms installed in ubuntu.
I have wine installed because I tried and failed to install FL 20.
so the problem I'm having is;

I downloaded plugins for dexed, which was an exe file
I used wine to extract it, and put the .dll file in the vst folder
But when I go inside lmms and click on the file, it says "plugin not found"

Please Help!
