Harmony Assistant on OpenSuse

by Hawke Robinson last modified Oct 26, 2015 06:56 AM
I have been using Myriad Software's Melody and Harmony Assistant since 1999 for some of my compositions as Synthetic Zen ( www.syntheticzen.com ). Recently they started supporting Linux distros in addition to the previous WIndows and Mac installs. I have used it on a few OpenSuse versions, here is information about 13.2 ...

Their RPM version is only 32 bit:

rpm -i harmony-assistant-9.6.3i.1-2.i386.rpm

So I could add the 32 bit versions of these libraries, or could potentially download the .deb 64 bit versions, and use Alien to convert to rpm.

For now will go with the 32 bit version and see how it does...

 

 

Also, since I have already installed Bitwig, there are always some file conflicts, but I think they are safe to ignore:

rpm -i harmony-assistant-9.6.3i.1-2.i386.rpm 
file /usr/bin from install of harmony-assistant-9.6.3i.1-2.i386 conflicts with file from package bitwig-studio-1.1.7-2.x86_64

 

So:

rpm -iv --force  harmony-assistant-9.6.3i.1-2.i386.rpm 
Preparing packages...
