Re: PulseAudio died badly and now it doesn't seem to work

The problem was Chrome, not any of those other things. I had been answering "yes" when it asked whether I wanted to restore the old windows each time I restarted it. This time I closed them all and said no, and now it works.

Thanks for your help!

Re: PulseAudio died badly and now it doesn't seem to work

Nothing is muted in AlsaMixer; I even checked all the playback devices on the two sound devices (loopback and default) that aren't in use. I was demonizing pulseaudio because that's what they said here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=159605 Since you questioned that, I've been trying it ...

PulseAudio died badly and now it doesn't seem to work

I'm running Kubuntu 17.10 with a lot of kxstudio stuff installed, in particuolar Cadence, using the Alsa -> PulseAudio -> Jack bridge. I had a lot of audio apps (including maybe five Spotify tabs in Chrome) open at once and my computer froze severely, so I hardware-rebooted. If I try to play audio i...

Re: Cadence opens, won't run

Aha! Thanks, I didn't know I had to do that.

Yesterday I tried the other computer, and I'm *so close* to having that working:

Maybe I'll get it set up on both of them :D

KXStudio, Cadence, JACK working -- except when I try to use the headphone jack

I can use the builtin speakers, but when I plug into the headphone jack, I get silence. (I know the external speaker works from testing it by tapping my thumb on the end of the cable.) I've attached a screenshot of my settings, and copy of what the log says when I force-restart JACK. Cadence starts ...

Re: Cadence opens, won't run

Indeed, I had done what you said. Thanks for bearing with me. Today I used apt-cache policy to show me which repo it was using for jackd2, it said I didn't have it installed. That seemed bad, so I ran "apt purge jackd2" and then installed it again, and this time it seems to have used the d...

Re: Cadence opens, won't run

Now Cadence works! But I'm still getting audio glitches of the kind I was hoping would vanish if I had true realtime support, and I don't think I got the version of jackd2 you were hoping for. The glitches arise when I use TidalCycles, an app that controls SuperCollider via OSC. I just start some lo...

Re: Cadence opens, won't run

Do I need to switch my version of jackd? I have both jackd and jackd2 installed. I don't know how to read this, but here is, supposedly[1], enough information to deduce the repository that it came from: jeff@jbb-lenovo:~/code/Tidal$ apt-cache showpkg jackd Package: jackd Versions: 5 (/var/lib/apt/li...

Re: Cadence opens, won't run

Sweet, thanks! I ran Kubuntu's "Discover" manager for updates, and rebooted, and now I can click on *some* of the System page. I was able to set the ALSA bridge to "ALSA -> PulseAudio -> JACK (Plugin)", per your advice in an earlier thread[1]. And I can click Configure to open th...

Cadence opens, won't run

Nothing on the System page of Cadence responds when I click on it. I tried futzing around in the Tweaks page, but I can't even tell if I'm having an effect. I'm running KUbuntu 16.04 on a Lenovo ThinkPad E545. I just apt-installed a bunch of stuff from KXStudio[1], particularly kxstudio-meta-all, pu...

Re: Upgrading Kubuntu to KXStudio: What happens to KDE? PulseAudio? or my first JACK install?

Thanks! I might almost understand!

Do you mean I should skip the step where they say to install 'kxstudio-desktop-kde4', but otherwise do everything they say? Is there something I should do instead of the step(s) that doesn't apply?
