Unable to install Ardour plugin

Hello everyone . I am a hobbyist composer / producer of music and I have just installed Manjaro Qonos 21.2.1 . All looking pretty good so far however I have a favorite plugin the Harrison 32C Channel. This is installing from the terminal no problem however Ardour reports when it scans it :

[ERROR]: Could not load VST2 plugin ‘/usr/lib/vst/32C-Channel.so’: libcurl-gnutls.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[WARNING]: Cannot open VST2 module ‘/usr/lib/vst/32C-Channel.so’

This installs on a seperate machne running ubuntu 20.04 LTS no problem

Is this an issue with Manjaro ? or the plugin or Ardour ?

Any response most welcome , thanks in advance : )


Try installing this package and try again:

sudo pacman -S libcurl-gnutls

If that doesn’t work:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libcurl.so.4 /usr/lib64/libcurl-gnutls.so.4


The libcurl-gnutls package is probably not installed. It’s maybe installed by default on Ubuntu though.
Try pamac install libcurl-gnutls and reinstall your plugin.

thank you cjean and ishaanbhimwal . I have just discovered the Manjaro 10 minute lock out feature whilst attempting to type my password and read your post … :blush: wont be long …
