Alternatives to using JACK
 
Hi all,
is there an alternative way to record guitar on Ubuntu that doesn't rely
on JACK? I ask as I've spent two weeks trying to get JACK based apps
running, and though I've managed to get it working twice, the next time
I start the computer I effectively have to start all over again. This is
no good for public performance!

Audacity can work in a non-Jack mode and it's an excellent piece of
software. But without Jack, you're seriously limiting yourself since
most developers are going to want to use Jack when developing new and
existing projects.

Perhaps a better (albeit more difficult) option would be to work out
your problems with regards to getting Jack working on your system.
Build your system, get it working, and write down each step you took.
Then tear down your system, build it again, and apply your steps.

If you can get the process broken down into some kind of checklist,
then you can most likely automate it with a Bash script or something.

Believe me, after two weeks I've tried every possible combination of
fixes off the web, in every order, I've uninstalled and re-installed
Studio, re-installed the RT kernel etc etc! I even re-set the sound card
by running Windows 7 (which actually worked for about 1 minute, but not
at all with Jack-Rack).

I started off with Audacity, which is very nice, which led me to the
exciting world of JACK. I'll stick with that until JACK is sorted out I
think!

Alternatives to using JACK
 
Try installing the standard Ubuntu kernel. I've had issues w/ the RT kernel since 8.10. Jack works fine for me w/o the RT kernel (YMMV, I'm running w/ 3GB of RAM).

But why are the settings not sticky?

They certainly are on the 3 systems I've built.
