@etXzat Yes Ubuntu has some quirks when it comes to installing some packages, that is why I build from source and installed in manually.
I want to avoid installing from the official repository since they have outdated versions, see: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/faust
latest current stable is 2.41
make all && sudo make install solved my issues! Thank you very much.
@d-healey I had to specify the custom font in each instance of text, as "default" settings would not render any text, even though the default font was set in the script.
This is a quirk that didn't exist at first, but then got introduced at some point. Not sure if it is still present.
Yes that blur algorithm is super unperformant - I had to remove the blurred overlay on our latest project too. The problem is that it can‘t be done on the GPU without including other graphic frameworks so your precious bitcoin miner is sitting there idle...
