Emne: Hi there, I need help to configure Ubuntustudio on my machine
Dato: søn., apr. 8, 2012 11:49


Hi there again!

I still have problems.
I figured out, that Jack is the Problem: I cannot run jack. I do not
know why.
Jack is not started after booting, so I start it on my own by typing
"jackd -R -n "jserv" -p 128 -d alsa -d hw:Juli -s"

It results in the following error:
matthias@ustudio:~$ jackd -R -n "jserv" -p 128 -d alsa -d hw:Juli -s

I do not know what this tells me. If I write hw:0 or hw:1 instead of
hw:Juli, I get the same error.
I really hope someone can help me. I already read so much boards and
stuff, I was on several IRC ubuntu channels and posted help requests in
a german ubuntu board, but noone told me helpful stuff. They just write
"use qjackctl" and "play around with qjackctl", but what does it help if
Jack is not started?
Please helpme!

anyway, have a nice easter-weekend.

Default Hi there, I need help to configure Ubuntustudio on my machine

I highly recommend qjackctl (see http://qjackctl.sourceforge.net/ ) for controlling the jack audio server. If you're running ubuntu studio it should be installed already. It makes starting/stopping/configuring the jack server much easier. Jack never runs on computer startup because it is designed to handle any audio needs from basic to extremely complex. It therfore has a bewildering array of options that take some time to figure out. That being said, qjackctl makes using jack about as painless as using such a complex piece of software can be.

Default Hi there, I need help to configure Ubuntustudio on my machine

I am confused. Those messages "unknown PCM default" / "unknown PC
Juli"... This looks like an alsa problem, i.e., at a lower level than
jack or pulseaudio.

I would try disabling .asoundrc files [1]. There might be two of them:

/etc/asound.conf (probably not existent, but just in case)
~/.asoundrc

The second one, from your report:

# ALSA library configuration file
# Include settings that are under the control of asoundconf(1).
# (To disable these settings, comment out this line.)
</home/matthias/.asoundrc.asoundconf>

So, what happens if you comment out the last line? (And then reboot,
or restart the user session)

Some days ago I read a post in a board about enabling the
onboard-soundcard in the BIOS - I never touched the BIOS, except for
installing operating systems from a USB-Stick. Could it be that I have
to enable the ESI in the BIOS? I don't think so, but maybe you know more...

Default Hi there, I need help to configure Ubuntustudio on my machine

Update:

I got a new, really confusing "error".
I played around with jack. I selected hw:1,0 as Input device (which is
the ESI) and hw:1,1 as output (which is also the ESI). Jack is running, BUT

- no sound
- Status output tells me:
XRUN callback (1).
XRUN callback (39 skipped)

The last line about 20 times, one time with "(41 skipped)" and one time
with "(40 skipped)", than I halted Jack.


Now I try with hw:1,1 as Input and 1,0 as output - and got the old
error. I reversed to 1,1 as output and 1,0 as input and got the old
error again.

Well, if/when jack is started, only "jackified" applications or "jack
clients" will make sound.

In other words, you have to make sure that you can connect the app's
audio outputs to the "system" playbacks. (See the connect window of
qjackctl. In this context, "system" means the audio card that jack is
using).

The default sound server in ubuntu(studio) is pulseaudio.
Banshee/rhytmhbox, flashplayer in firefox, etc, are not "jackified" by
default. To solve this problem you have either to jackify the apps,
use other apps or enable some kind of bridge between pulseaudio (or
alsa) and jack.

As a quick test you can use a jack-friendly audio player, for example,
aqualung. Aqualung will know if jack is active and you will see it in
the connections window.

For the pulseaudio to jack bridge, follow the instructions here:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudioPreparation#Pulse_Audio

If you still have no sound from your onboard card, check playback
levels in alsamixer.

Well, sometimes the ESI is hw:1, sometimes is hw:0. You can give
consistent numbers to the audio cards in a configuration file,
/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf. This is explained in alsa-project
site, multiple audio cards. As you noted, the site is down so, for the
time being, you will have to check every time in qjackctl setup or
name the card by name instead of by number.

> and hw:1,1 as output (which is also the ESI).

The first number is the card (Karte) number, which can change between
reboots. The second number is the device number (Gerät). See aplay -l.

According to arecord -l && aplay -l, the ESI has two devices, both of
them are duplex (they can record and playback at the same time) and
the second one (number 1) is digital, IEC958. To access the analog
inputs and outputs, you should choose hw:x,0 as input and output
devices, or once for both in the interface field. (hw:Juli should
default to hw:x,0 where x is the card number for the ESI).


Jack is running, BUT

Try aqualung, see above.

xruns can be caused for many different reasons. By now, increase the
frames/periods value.


BTW, if you don't mind waiting for three weeks or so, I hope
ubuntustudio 12.04 will give you a much better first time experience.

Default Hi there, I need help to configure Ubuntustudio on my machine

I installed Rhythmbox.
I imported a song. I clicked on the Song in Rhythmbox. Nothing happened.
Maybe because of missing MP3 codecs. I imported the
/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav soundfile. Nothing happened.


... I'm really annoyed!

I hope it is back soon.


Anyway:
/etc/asound.conf doesn't exists.
I commented out the line in ~/.asoundrc and rebooted. Now Jack starts, but
with the onboard-Soundcard. I plugged in my Headphones into the onboard
card, but still have no sound!

Well, if/when jack is started, only "jackified" applications or "jack
clients" will make sound.

In other words, you have to make sure that you can connect the app's
audio outputs to the "system" playbacks. (See the connect window of
qjackctl. In this context, "system" means the audio card that jack is
using).

The default sound server in ubuntu(studio) is pulseaudio.
Banshee/rhytmhbox, flashplayer in firefox, etc, are not "jackified" by
default. To solve this problem you have either to jackify the apps,
use other apps or enable some kind of bridge between pulseaudio (or
alsa) and jack.

As a quick test you can use a jack-friendly audio player, for example,
aqualung. Aqualung will know if jack is active and you will see it in
the connections window.

For the pulseaudio to jack bridge, follow the instructions here:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudioPreparation#Pulse_Audio

If you still have no sound from your onboard card, check playback
levels in alsamixer.



Some days ago I read a post in a board about enabling the onboard-soundcard
in the BIOS - I never touched the BIOS, except for installing operating
systems from a USB-Stick. Could it be that I have to enable the ESI in the
BIOS? I don't think so, but maybe you know more...

No



I got a new, really confusing "error".
I played around with jack. I selected hw:1,0 as Input device (which is the
ESI)

Well, sometimes the ESI is hw:1, sometimes is hw:0. You can give
consistent numbers to the audio cards in a configuration file,
/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf. This is explained in alsa-project
site, multiple audio cards. As you noted, the site is down so, for the
time being, you will have to check every time in qjackctl setup or

- Status output tells me:
XRUN callback (1).
XRUN callback (39 skipped)

The last line about 20 times, one time with "(41 skipped)" and one time with
"(40 skipped)", than I halted Jack.

xruns can be caused for many different reasons. By now, increase the
frames/periods value.


BTW, if you don't mind waiting for three weeks or so, I hope
