Help, i have installed linux on my old lenovo t520 to create a tidal and hydra live performance computer. I can not get tidal up and running and i have a gig next friday. So i need some help to make it run. hope someone can help me
also i am new to linux mint.
can you detail what steps you've taken so far to install tidal?
I just followed the linux guide Linux | Tidal Cycles
From the error message, the ghc-pkg ( the haskell package manager), cannot be found. If you installed via "apt install haskell-platform", that should solve the problem, though i'm not sure why "apt install cabal-install" didn't automatically install haskell as a dependency.
Did you try the automated method (ansible works on mint)?
Huh, interesting - I did a fresh install on ubuntu 22.04 last night, and ghc-pkg had difficulty with the same command you've screenshot (
ghc-pkg field tidal data-dir)
I'll have a lookin into it today, but in the meantime you may find that vscode works - try that playbook from ansible instead
OK it looks like there might be some complexity due to having installed manually first.
I'd recommend moving (deleting) the following folders, then running ansible again:
~/.cabal ~/.ghc ~/.ghcup
