Error when installing

I get the following error when installing :

cp: cannot overwrite non-directory '/home/mevla/.u-he/ZebraHZ/Tunefiles' with directory
'ZebraHZ/Tunefiles'

Which is because I have Tunefiles in only one directory, the ACE directory, and instead of cyping them many times, for every other synth I have:

Tunefiles -> ../ACE/Tunefiles/

The question is, does that error prevent any other subsequent operation in the installation ? Since the -e switch is used in the script, any error is not handled and it exits immediately (not nice). The end notice of the install script is certainly not shown. Anything else missing ?

Cheers.

Hi, mmmh good question.
What was the exit code from the script?

Got the same error with the installation of Hive 2 a few moments ago:

Do you agree the license's terms? [y/n] y
cp: cannot overwrite non-directory '/home/mevla/.u-he/Hive/Tunefiles' with directory 'Hive/Tunefiles'

And then right away doing this:

echo $?
1

In addition to the Tunefiles/ being shared as shown above, the whole ~/.u-he directory is a symlink:

.u-he -> /B3/Plugins/u-he/

Cheers.

Hive 2 installed fine on Mint 18, using the default path.
I moved the earlier Hive folder out of the vst path
before running the Hive 2 install script.

Thanks Abique, for having this ready to go on launch day!!! :party:
It's a brilliant instrument, with some great new sounds, one of which
I'll be playing for hours and hours and hours :hyper: thankyou Howard!!!
Thankyou Urs, and all involved in making a great V2 :tu:
Cheers

Do you share Tunefiles between u-he synths ?

I've never used Tunefiles, probably a learning curve
I should attempt at some point. It would be surprising
for something in standard paths to misbehave,
but if music were all from standard paths, we'd just be
a bunch of drummers :hihi:


(bad joke from someone who can't keep a bongo in 4/4 time :( )

Had time to look at tunefiles, so I loaded the 'gamut'
file in a reaper session with Hive2, Zebra HZ, Repro 1, and Repro 5,
and all 4 played on the same scale.

It appears changing presets turns off the tunefile for the next preset.
I would hope that to be an option, not the default behaviour.
What are the odds you'd choose a tunefile for one preset only,
while composing or practicing, especially as a tunefile beginner like me?
Cheers

Feature request: Having a full duplication of the tunefile widgets
on each instruments tunefile selection panel would very nice, especially for those with loads of such files.

I notice the virtual keyboards are active across
multiple different U-he instruments, all showing keypresses
from the midi controller, could a config option allow the tunefile selection be active globally for all u-he synths discovered in a session?
Some parsing of the daw tracks from the U-he side?

(my technical knowledge is surely lagging :( )

Cheers

About tunefiles being part of a patch and not a global setting: the concern does not exist since the parameter (at least on the current Zebra2) can be locked.

Cheers.

Thanks for pointing this out! Now I can search more accurately,
and am finding lots of good info and links. Putting all the
U-he manuals in one folder will help my curiosities.
Cheers
