works here ootb. (opensuse12.1 32bit)

note that you must install on one of the configured vst plugin search 
paths (View/Options.../Plugins/Paths/VST); default are 

i'll also remind you that VST_PATH is conventional for native windowsVST 
plugins (.dll) as indeed searched by dssi-vst; it's not used as a 
default search path for native linuxVST plugins, from qtractor pov.

the DigitsVST install script suggests that you set 
VST_PATH=/usr/share/digits; might work for renoise but then you should 
also add /usr/share/digits to the above VST path list on qtractor
