Update your software sources to be able to install ardour4.
Unless you're using the kxstudio meta-packages you'll have to install "ardour4" manually.
(The old ardour3 package will remain, uninstall it if you want)
What is meant by " kxstudio meta-packages"?

you need a proper sound mixer/applet/tool that does ALSA-based mixing, not just pulseaudio.
kmix and volti are usually good choices.
Thanx!! I'll check them out.

If I just let Jack run in the background, you're right, I get sounds.

Re: Step by Step KXStudio upgrade Mint/Ubuntu/Debian/etc.

Thanx for the quick reply! I think I'm getting better at the feel of the KXS setup...I have been comparing how to use it in various distros (all 64 bit)....e.g., Ubuntu Studio 12.04.5 LTS; Ubuntu 14.04 LTS; and now also Linux Mint 17. I tend to forget the basics as I deal with these different distro...

Re: Step by Step KXStudio upgrade Mint/Ubuntu/Debian/etc.

At first I didn't stop jack after closing Ardour (Ardour played sound).

Then when I discovered no web sound (YouTube in this case), that's when I shut down Jack
to see if that would give me back the sound. But, still no sound.

However, I then rebooted Mint/KXS. And I then had web sounds.

Re: Step by Step KXStudio upgrade Mint/Ubuntu/Debian/etc.

I installed KXStudio per instructions at top of this page today over my Linu Mint 17.
Now I have no sound in you Tube.
The video plays...but no sound.
This happened right after running Ardour3. I shut down Jack, same problem still no youtube sound.

Re: KXS 12.04 or 14.04?

Another question...does the KXS 14.04b_64bit have the improvement implemented what you guys are talking about---addressing the ALSA bridge problem?

Re: KXS 12.04 or 14.04?

Ok I've downloaded KXS 14.04b_64 bit and also 14.04.1 LTS Trusty Tahr....how are they different? I suspect I can just install the former over my existing KXS, right? Also, if I do that, how can I also migrate my KXS home partition to a different location, maybe on the same hard drive in it's own sep...

Thank you!! I'm not even aware that I subsribed to their feed. lol Since I seem to get confused from time to time about this matter, all I need to do is unsubsribe, then visit sourceforge as I wish.

KXS 12.04 or 14.04?

I'm running KXStudio 12.04 64 bit. I'm not quite sure the right (safe) way to run updates/ upgrades. I use Synaptic instead of Muon because that is what I'm used to (Synaptic) while using Ubuntu the past couple years. I get emails from SourceForge.net reminding me of "new updates/upgrades" a few tim...
