Install Tracktion Waveform on a recent 64bit Ubuntu installation.
Install the Essentials plugins into a directory on your hard drive.
Point Waveform to the plugins directory in the settings tab.
In the main tab of a new project, find one of the Essentials plugins and drag it onto a track plugin area.
Instant crash of Waveform (similar results in Qtractor or Ardour).
For some reason, when run in a VM, the plugins don't get that far because they simply show up red in the plugins page on the settings tab.
Last time around, I was able to momentarily bring up one of the plugins in QTractor in order to register it, but I haven't been able to get that working this time. I've been chopping and changing my machines around of late, so this means that the plugins have failed to get as far as allowing the GUI to be opened in Waveform across two completely different machines (Ubuntu 18.10 in Feb and Ubuntu 19.10 recently) and within three different VirtualBox VMs (Ubuntu 18.10, 19.10 and 16.04). This makes me think that it's a universal problem for all Linux users, but it hasn't been reported yet as no one else has done a fresh installation recently. As before, at the beginning of the year, I can use projects with the Essentials plugins, but the GUI cannot be opened without causing a crash.
It seems that the most recent Ubuntu has versions of Libcurl4 and Libcurl3 installed simultaneously. I have also tried installing cURL itself to see if that made any difference.
