Hi folks,

I've been using tidal for a while now, but thought it was time to upgrade. I'm using Lubuntu 14.04. The problem I have is that I don't seem to be able to install supercollider 3.7 on this setup. I've tried the package manager route - it's an earlier version, and I've tried building from source but there are some complex dependency issues with cmake that afaict the supercollider people are trying to resolve atm.

I'm mainly interested in the midi side of tidal at the moment, and I don't think I need supercollider to do this (although it would be nice to have it all running together nicely). So is there a way to do this? Tidal seemed to install fine btw - but I haven't tested it yet because it's probably looking for superdirt, which I don't have...

The issues with SC and CMake should be resolved. If you still see an error when building from source can you post it here?

thanks! I made a 'build' subdir, and from there did: cmake -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5 .. the error is: CMake Error at editors/sc-ide/CMakeLists.txt:233 (qt5_add_translation): Unknown CMake command "qt5_add_translation". ...and there's lots of warnings before this.

You could start an issue here about your compile problems in Lubuntu, maybe someone has a solution:

Tidal doesn't look for SuperDirt so it should be fine. The worst that'll happen is that if you start it up and try d1 $ some_stuff it'll complain "oops send: does not exist (Connection refused)". The MIDI should work fine without SuperDirt even existing.
