I'm fairly new to Linux and RG, but recently managed to move from 64studio 2.1 to the new 3 beta, but now I can't see the Fluidsynth plugin in RG. I've also posted this to the 64studio forum - http://www.64studio.com/node/1138 - not sure if it's a distro or RG issue. Apologies if this is the wrong place!
When I left-click an empty track in RG, choose "synth plugin", then go to "Instrument Parameters" and click "no synth", I used to be able to choose Fluidsynth from the drop-down list. Now I only see Oscilloscope, wsynth, xsynth, hexter and nekobee.
Could someone please point me in the right direction to help get Fluidsynth added as a plugin again in RG ??
Many thanks for any help!

The most likely explanation is that the plugin is not installed on your
system. Do you have a package called "fluidsynth-dssi" installed? If not,
there's your answer.
Another common problem is that distros have been releasing Rosegarden packages
without liblo support built in, so you can't run the external plugin GUIs.
If that happens, you get no "editor" button That is a real problem for
Fluidsynth-DSSI, because it's totally useless without its external GUI.
I'm not sure what would happen for an external-editor-only plugin where we
couldn't display the editor button. It *might* not show up on the list of
available plugins in that case, so you *might* have a broken Rosegarden
package built without liblo support.
You can test for this by running (from a command line):
$ ldd `which rosegarden`|grep liblo
It should return something like:
liblo.so.0 => /usr/lib/liblo.so.0 (0xb7423000)
If it doesn't, your package is broken. If we should happen to establish that
to be the case, we'll discuss what to do about it in more detail.
Finally, another common DSSI problem involves not having localhost
If it's none of the above, then I'm stumped.
