Hey Scott et al,
Try these directions to move the folder. I can verify this works correctly and I even installed the Extended and India libraries and they installed in my non-SSD drive without having to change anything. So once you do this, you won't have to do it again.
i get stuck on 4.
cd Shared/ROLI is not taking me to the ROLI directory. i get "No such file or directory"
Seems like you either already moved ROLI folder or something else.
Try this command in terminal and once completed see if you can locate the ROLI folder in the generated file on desktop.
find / -name ROLI -type d > ~/desktop/rolifind.txt
you can ignore any permissions denied outputs.

sorry Amit, i'm not at all familiar with Terminal, so i don't know correct syntax and i have no way of knowing where spaces go in the commands you post from looking at this page.
maybe point me to a Terminal primer? i'm a composer, not a programmer or engineer.
where things are:
i've already copied ROLI to my external HD (where i keep Falcon, Omnisphere, etc)
i suppose i'm now just trying to get my DAW (Ableton) to look for the Equator files on that HD, yes?
- beyond my comprehension why i can't tell the plugin where to look. who designed this anyway?
meanwhile, typing cd .. doesn't even get me to the Shared folder.
copy and paste this at the terminal the command you issues has a . before ~ hence the error.
If you can tell me exact current path of the ROLI folder you copied, I can give you the exact command that you can paste in terminal.
on the external hard drive TravelStudioExHD
that worked. thanks a bunch, mate!
Hi Amit and Marc
Thanks for this installation tips. However, Equator still isn't finding the path. I followed all your steps and even got the Roli alias showing up in the original Shared folder, however, upon opening Equator - no sounds.
I restarted the computer, still nothing.
I've attached the directory for the external drive (Chandra_1T), and one of the Master HD.
If you can lend a hand, I'd great appreciate it!
Hi Amit and Marc
I followed all your instructions, but Equator still isn't loading the sounds. I even have the Roli alias in the previous directory. I've restarted the comp, and still no-go.
Any help would be appreciated!
I've attached 2 screenshots. one of the external drive (named Chandra_1T) and one of the Master HD
Ok - so it's been solved. I copied over the "Users/Shared" part of the directory, which is why the Roli alias couldn't see the Equator library in the new directory.
Have I missed something? Is it not possible to choose the installation path?
Or even better, move it from my C drive to my D drive?
I have an SSD for fast booting on drive C and I didn't get a chance to pick where it installed.
This has caused additional issues for me because I keep all of my VST's on my D drive - Ableton won't allow me to assign 2 places for vst's, So I can't use it so far.
If I'm mistaken, then if anyone can help, it would be great - I'm new to the software, just 2 days of use.
Thanks for your time.
