Jovie

+apologies+ This is KXStudio-related, but not connected to music production. Has anyone successfully got sound from Jovie? I installed it in order to have Okular read to me. I believe the installation brought Festival with it. As I run Jovie, there is no language option, no choice of synthesizer, no...

Re: Guitarix - Can't update or re-install

firefox issue is sadly something that will be there until the next major release ISO. the "fix" is to change the gtk3 theme within systemsettings -> appearance -> GTK. A 'fix' that is working well so far is the use of Vivaldi instead of Firefox. Incidentally, I'm enjoying and appreciating Vivaldi i...

Re: Guitarix - Can't update or re-install

I gave up. I offloaded some data and started all over again. This time, I'll stay with KXStudio and only KXStudio. I did a fresh install. Immediately, upon trying to use Firefox 55.0.2 as installed, I discovered that checkboxes on webpages are invisible. Since they are obviously there even if they c...

Re: Cat Dragged Me In

Get all of the latest audio stuff from the KXStudio repos (and if you do, make a donation to FalkTX, that guy works like a madman to keep those repos up to date).
Hi, Michael.

When you start with Elementary and then add the KXStudio repos, aren't you 'mixing ppa's', like I have apparently done?

Re: Cat Dragged Me In

ouch :!: That should not of happened.But we're still here and the dam place didn't explode. :lol: still, doesn't sound very good. I guess hopefully when you sort the guitarix and audio interface issue you can do it all over again and not mix ppa's and chalk it up as experience. :wink: I hardly know...

Re: Cat Dragged Me In

My bad :oops: I was doing it the "debian way" :mrgreen: I guess unchecking is good enough. It can deleted after unchecking. Unchecking that one led to a worse cascade of errors: Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/zesty/InRelease Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/d...

Re: Cat Dragged Me In

Hey, chibchan. Thanks. I'm embarrassed to say that I can't find the ppa for xenial that you referred to.... OK. I found in synaptic > settings > repositories > 'software & updates' > 'Other Software' > ppa.launchpad.net/inameiname/stable/ubuntu zesty main is checked. It's the only one that resemble...

Re: Cat Dragged Me In

Another complication is occurring: system updating is stalling now. In synaptic, clicking 'reload' and running 'downloading package information' runs to 98% and then stalls. In synaptic, the 'progress bar' goes to near completion, but goes into paralysis with just a bit left. Finally, after clicking...

Guitarix - Can't update or re-install

Salutations! Recently, I have been trying to set up an audio recording station on my Lenovo W510 (I'm going to be traveling). I started with Ubuntu Studio 17.04. I immediately ran into issues, one of which was the sampler not 'connecting' / not working. Although I've tinkered with Ubuntu over the ye...

Re: Cat Dragged Me In

I appreciate the help and the references! Please do not misunderstand me in what i am about to say. I thought I was a musician, or at least trying to be one. But in the past few weeks it's been all about Linux/Ubuntu, trying to get it set up and working, trying to figure out why problems happen and ...

Re: Cat Dragged Me In

If i'm right there is no 'newbies' subforum. Only the "Glad your here" one. Everyone simply askes his questions in the related subject-subforums. Perhaps here there are no 'newbies' because there are no 'oldies' :lol: and all are equally respected? On many forums 'newbies' have to kiss ass of the '...

Re: Cat Dragged Me In

Hello, I know in the beginning everything can be overwhelming. I have gone on youtube and found how-to videos for many linux audio software. If you do a search in the forum you can find some answers, too. I found quite a few nice videos about ardour5. Ardour has its own way of doing things, but can...

Re: Cat Dragged Me In

Welcome! If you ever can't get it to work, you can also install the regular Ubuntu and then install the wanted software. That's how i did it. But i trust that the professionals overhere will get you far enough. Just ask. I've got Ubuntu Studio 17 installed, and I think I have managed to update and ...
