    Default Question about wine and LMMS

    LMMS - Linux Multi Media Studio.

    In this program you can load software synthesizers / drum computers.

    These plugins are called vst(i) and are .dll files.

    LMMS uses on Linux, wine to load these .dll files.

    Some work some don't, I am used to that.

    But there is one plugin I would really like to use.

    To test if this plugin works, I also installed LMMS on Win 7 pro.
    No problem there when loading the .dll file.

    Back to Linux, openSUSE 12.3 64 bit and wine.

    The plugin loads but then wine and LMMS both freeze.

    Now my question:

    When I encounter problem on openSUSE, I usual start a program from the command-line, and see if there are errors or something I understand.
    But it seems you can't start wine this way?
    When I tried, the commandline told me, I have to type wine and the program I want to start.
    That's were my problem starts. Wine does not run lmms, lmms runs native on Linux, but I want to see the output from wine.
    And a .dll file is not a program? or is it ?

    And wine Rhytmus.dll gives me
    Code:
    XXXX@linux-n2go:~> wine Rythmus.dll
    wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\Rythmus.dll"
    I am totally confused. I do understand wine can't find the .dll file in system32, because its stored in a folder in lmms, like all the vst I use, and which do work.

    It's a shared library, you can't run it.

    Thank you for the confirmation.

    But isn't there a way, that I can see why wine crashes ?

    With other programs on Linux its as simple as starting it from the commandline, but wine does not work in this way.

    If it actually uses wine you can try setting the WINEDEBUG environment variable ( http://wiki.winehq.org/DebugChannels ) before starting the program from the command line.
