Spent some time trying to get Audacity to use JACK. Searches suggest that you have to compile your own Audacity with JACK support, and even then many report JACK crashing.
I can live with out JACK support. Presently I can't run Audacity and JACK at the same time. If I have Audacity up and working (with Prefs > Audio I/O > Playback Device = ALSA (default)) and then I start JACK, Audacity will start giving me "error opening sound device when I try to play something. I've read suggestions of invoking Audacity with
Code: Select all
to avoid this, but I still have the same problem when JACK is started.
I think that there is a similar conflict with Rhythmbox and other applications.
Is there a workaround that I haven't found?
Thanks for any thoughts.
