Default How do I access the Wine - C drive VST folder?

I have installed the VST, run LinVST and now I want to add the VST folder to Reaper (for Linux). However it does not give me the option to access either the Wine folder, or the C drive in it?

Can anyone advise how I can do this please?

Thanks

cd ~/.wine/drive_c

It's a folder in your home dir.

Thanks - yeah I knew where it was when I write it into the folder bar though Reaper will not scan it.

You can't just type it in, you have to click the "Edit" button on the right, then click "Add", and navigate to the folder you want to add. (you may be able to just type in the folder location from that add window, but you *must* click edit and then add)

Not very intuitive...

Linux Reaper reads it's vst list from a line in the text file

/home/you/.config/REAPER/reaper.ini

As it can be a long line, I save it as a text file where it's
easier to edit, and handy to paste in a reaper on a separate
linux setup.

For linvst, I have a copy of of the VstPlugins folder
without any .so files. If I need to change linvst version,
it's faster to delete the folder with all .the .so files,
and copy the 'fresh one', then run the new linvst.

No big deal with just five plugins, but with 55,
or 83, the minutes and tedium opening folders to delete
each .so file, adds up!
Cheers
