abGate in Debian

I have looked a little more into the issue here. As abGate was
developed using Qt and gtkmm libraries, hosts that support any of those
should load it fine. This is why somebody mentioned that it works in
Qtractor but not in Ardour. 
jalv actually supports many libraries and it seems to load abGate's UI
as it supposed to look like. You can try loading it with jalv.gtkmm and
With jalv.select it is possible to choose which libs should be used so
it can be loaded there correctly. Too bad jalv does not detect the
correct one itself.
With jalv.gtk3 plugin's UI is not loaded but instead host provides the
default one and in my opinion it is quite usable in this case.
So what I will try to do is to make abGate display the UI with jalv.gtk
which is default in jalv.select
