In my quest for a Raspberry Pi 3B setup that can act as a Roland MT32 & SC-55 emulator I came across Patchbox OS.
I got Munt, the MT32 emulator, running with shell and x binary, following this tutorial https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/12549/tutorial-installing-munt-mt-32-emulation-on-rpi-3
While the x binary did show me some “LCD” screen, nothing much was to be seen on it. So I want to try the Qt version.
But my limited knowledge of linux got me stranded building the mt32emu_qt binary. I basically installed Qt 5.7.1 (latest available via apt-get), IIRC I also added portaudio and changed one of the cmake parameters to -Dmunt_WITH_MT32EMU_QT:BOOL=ON but ran into problems
Something with: fatal error: QtWidgets/QAction: No such file or directory
Hopefully someone can help me out?
I also saw somebody made a LV2 out of Munt https://linuxmusicians.com/viewtopic.php?t=12937
So I thought, maybe this can be added to MODEP. But I have no clue how to do that. And given that the lv2 github is rather old I wouldn’t know how to have it use the latest Munt 2.3.0.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and hopefully this can lead to have MT32 running on Patchbox OS and/or MODEP.
