Duh, I'm sorry -- I dozily misread which thread you were asking about, 
and thought you were asking about DSSI plugins generally rather than 
dssi-vst specifically.

dssi-vst is a DSSI plugin, so what I just wrote does apply to it.  If 
it's properly built and installed (which is generally the tricky bit!) 
then it will scan the VST plugins found in $VST_PATH (defaulting to 
$HOME/vst/) and make them all available to any DSSI host as DSSI 
plugins.  So they should show up automatically in e.g. Rosegarden.

To run them in a standalone mode, one can say something like

  jack-dssi-host dssi-vst.so:Reaktor4.dll

to run a particular wrapped plugin using the reference host.  This is 
pretty much equivalent to using Kjetil's vsti program (from vstserver).
