Well...I've exhausted myself trying to get this to work,
and naturally a new poster to a mailing list should introduce himself etc 

But it's 5:45AM, I've got a wicked cold, my throat's on fire, and because I 
can't sleep...I've decided (unwisely) to keep trying to get this to work. 

I'm using an rpm (mdk) of rosegarden I rebuilt from a source rpm...it seems 
to work fine, and I can get those cruddy "trivial" synths to work fine. I 
guess I should be happy after hoping to record in linux now for 5 
years...but it won't be a studio till I can get my Arturia vsti's, my native 
instruments purring along in time. 

So, How do I get dssi-vst to see my vsti's? I've tried everything I can 
think of, but nothing seems to work.
here's the message from my last attempt: 

[ ~]# jack-dssi-host dssi-vst.so:Pro-53.dll

jack-dssi-host: Error: Plugin label "Pro-53.dll" not found in library 

The things that stand out, of course are: VST_PATH not set & DSSI_PATH not 
set, + the "plugin-scanner mismatch" 

I am at my wits end with this. A few more days and I slog back to my windows 
Any help would be great!
