|Summary||0008423: Ardour VST3 support should honour VST3_PATH|
|Description||Tested with Ardour 6.3-95-g751db481a6|
Ardour should also look for VST3 plugins in VST3_PATH.
Indeed, the VST3 specs says, for Linux
> On the Linux platform, the host application expects VST 3 plug-ins to be located in:
and then list some directories.
But reading it, I don't see anything prohibiting for having extra path to look for, that would have the lowest priority, and that could be specified by VST3_PATH like it is done with LXVST_PATH and LV2_PATH. Even if it is only for the first run.
The use case I'm looking at is Flatpak, but this solution is nothing specific to it.

Example of apps (that I tried) that supports VST3_PATH on Linux:
I stand corrected, BitwigStudio doesn't support it. But they support adding custom path (and I hadn't cleaned the settings when re-testing)
BTW filed an issue with the SDK
