[SOLVED] How to install a Nyquist plug-in to Audacity?`

Post by ES44AC8102 » Fri Jan 19, 2018 5:13 pm

It sounds simple enough, d/l the one you want and install it in the usr/share/audacity directory. I am trying to drop the file into that directory and it won't allow me. Neither will copy & paste. Other than making 2 new directories for the one plug-in is there a way to use the terminal to do it?

Thanks,

"ES"

Just type the command as is. It install the recommended extras for audacity, presumably including a bunch of plugins.

Hello and thanks,
this is what i get when I use that command

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
audacity is already the newest version (2.1.2-1).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

No mention of the plugin I want to use.. I already have it but can't seem to import it using Audacity's menu or pasting it in the correct folder. the Nyquist page makes no mention of how to do it, they just say ' do it" lol.

thanks

I am trying to add the one called Pseudosterro.ny ... to help with some mono recordings I have.

As root, copy the pseudostereo.ny file to /usr/share/audacity/plug-ins. Start Audacity. Click Effect, Add/Remove Plugins... Scroll down the list of plugins to the pseudostereo plugin and click it to select it. Click the Enable button. You're done.

I have the nyquist directory (as in my prev post), and 17 "addons" in audacity, but don't have any "*pseudostereo*" files anywhere.

Hi Flemur,

I got the file here: http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Nyqui ... udo-Stereo

I got the file installed and recognized by Audacity.

Thanks to all :!:

Here's an attempt at documenting this extremely simple process:

http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Downl ... t_Plug-ins
Installing plug-ins

To install a Nyquist plug-in, place its ".NY" file in the Audacity "Plug-ins" folder. In Audacity 2.1.1 or later, use Effect > Manage... or Effect > Add / Remove Plug-Ins... to open the Effect Manager. Select the plug-in(s) you want to install, then click Enable and OK.
On Linux, the "plug-ins" folder is in usr/share/audacity [No, it's "/usr/share/audacity"]

if you installed an Audacity package supplied by your distribution, or usr/local/share/audacity if you compiled Audacity from source code. Alternatively, create a directory called .audacity-files in your home folder and then create a plug-ins or plugins folder inside that. Audacity can currently load Nyquist plug-ins from other locations, but it is recommended to use the Linux locations listed above. In particular, ~/.audacity-data/Plug-Ins is now deprecated as a location for Nyquist plug-ins, but at the moment can still be used for these.

For further details please see https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/eff ... st_effects in the Manual.
FWIW, all my .ny files are in /usr/share/audacity/plug-ins, NOT where they said to put them above ^^^^.

I originally had mentioned that the folder wasn't correct, but thought better of it and didn't post it.

For whatever reason using the Effect | Manager to IMPORT them did not work for me. Better yet for some reason initially, I couldn't simply drag & drop them into the /usr/share/audacity/plug-ins but they reside there now with all the others.

I agree with you that the page gives improper information, hence my frustration. But rather than call it out as being wrong, I let it alone figuring everyone knows more about it than I do.....<sigh>

Yes it IS simple when it works!
