afaics, only linuxdsp plugins adhere to lv2 external_ui extension, the one
qtractor supports.

qtractor does not support the lv2 gtk ui extension and i'm afraid it never
will. sorry. there's obvious and technical reasons for just that.

the way to go is asking plugin authors to adopt the external_ui lv2
extension which is gui-toolkit agnostic. the gtk ui extension only works on
gtk based hosts like ardour.
