First problem is that my ladspa path is not set-up, so I have to remedy that, but I also get a gui error which crashes PD.  Can any one offer guidance?  I have lots of LADSPA plugins that I installed with DMG packages along with ardour.  (Also, I'm not sure where to set the path to  access these.)  I'm new to mac, but familiar with linux/music apps...

If I remember correctly, the Ardour installer doesn't put the plugins
under the  /usr tree, but rather under /Library/Frameworks, is that the
case? Do you actually have plugins in /usr/local/lib/ladspa
or /usr/lib/ladspa?

You said you set the environment variable, is it really set? What's the
output of 'export | grep LADSPA' ?
