Ubuntu 12.10 x64 + LMMS 0.4.14-rc1 with VST Support

Ubuntu 12.10 x64 + LMMS 0.4.14-rc1 with VST Support

May work with other versions:

sudo apt-get remove lmms
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:kxstudio-team/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine
sudo apt-get install lmms

Solution?  Install the new version of Wine and the KXStudio version of LMMS.

This will prompt for all the usual Wine stuff (MSCore Fonts, etc).

When the first VST plugin is loaded, it may say "Preparing wine configuration, please wait".  Just wait for it to finish and VST should work.

This is the quickest way I could find to get LMMS working with VST under Ubuntu 12.10 x64.

Problems with other methods I've found:
  1. Some mirrors of 0.4.14-rc1 don't include the VST plugin binaries
  2. Some methods seem to install an incompatible version of Wine

This was way easier than the way I did it with ppa:dns/sound. Thanks Tres! :)
