Finally figured out what the heck was causing the behavior below. My
~/.ardour2/ardour.rc file was NOT being overwritten by the ones in
It WAS being overwritten by /opt/etc/ardour2
Apparently when you do a scons --prefix=/opt (In my case to keep program I
compile and install by hand separate from those handled by package
management) it moves the /etc files into /opt as well, was not aware of
that. So out of curiosity, can that be changed to keep the location of the
system wide configuration files in /etc instead of moving that as well to
/opt? Or is that an option in scons I completely missed? For the moment I
created a link from /opt/etc/ardour2 to /etc/ardour2 to compensate, but
would love to not have to do that.
