Greetings, I have been running every version of Bitwig on my OpenSuse system successfully. Even the RC of 1.3.0 worked. But for some reason, the full release I can not get to work. I know you don't officially support rpm version of your product, but if you can please point me in the right direction, it would be very much appreciated (and I will help the number of others I know using rpm based distros using your products.

This is the error I get when trying to start it: bitwig-studio JRE Path: //opt/bitwig-studio/lib/jre Could not de-obfuscate stack trace: /home/bofh/.BitwigStudio/4624c1b52c2a9f8fa33f537c791263cfa064dd5f-Linux-release.txt not found.

I am running 64 bit OpenSuse 13.2 It seems to be looking for this:

And I have libbz2-1-1.0.6-29.2.7.x86_64, which contains:


Thank you for your great work, and continued support of the Linux community, it is greatly appreciated!


Many thanks to Bitwig's responsive and helpful technical support through email!

It was just a simple symlink issue (because of being on a different platform than officially supported). I had already tried this under /usr/lib/, but it actually needed it in /usr/lib64 since I'm on a 64 bit version of OpenSuse 13.2

To summarize, on OpenSuse 13.2 64 bit

First made certain that libbz2-1-1.0.6-29.2.7.x86_64 was installed (confirmed). Then add symlink to /usr/lib64/ for /usr/lib64/ ln -s

ln -s

ln -s

Works for me on Fedora 23 as well.

I had to not only do that link, but also install libbsd.
