[SOLVED] Bitwig Studio on Mageia 7.1?

Postby globetrotterdk » Jul 2nd, '20, 17:25

I am giving Mageia a try after a very long absence. Is anyone using Bitwig Studio on Mageia? I know of a script circulating on Fedora that can install Bitwig Studio and was wondering if anyone had tried to get Bitwig installed on Mageia...

I am running Mageia KDE 7.1.

Why don't you grab that script and adapt it to Mageia? It'll probably not be that much different ...

I’ll give it a try, but my problem as a new user is exactly that I haven’t got a clue as to how many practical differences there are between Mageia and Fedora.

Well, you could post a link to the script you referred to, so others may be able to explain it to you.

You should be fine installing it like this, although you need a 64bit system, as this is only available as x86_64 package, from what I can tell

Code: Select all
urpmi lib64bsd0 lib64bz2_1 dpkg wget


Then download the linux package from the homepage, which is currently
https://downloads.bitwig.com/stable/3.2.4/bitwig-studio-3.2.4.deb

Then unpack bitwig as root
Code: Select all
dpkg-deb -xv bitwig-studio-3.2.4.deb /


Then try to run it as regular user from the application menu or from a terminal as
Code: Select all
/opt/bitwig-studio/bitwig-studio

So far, Bitwig appears to work as advertised. There are few things that I need to sort out with my instrument sources, but none of that appears at this point to be anything related to installing Bitwig on Mageia. Should that change, I will post a new thread. Thanks again for the help.
