    Hello people, i am using ubuntu 11.04
    trying get working Internet DJ Console but i am experiencing problem to connect to the Jack server

    i already checked the intructions given in the idjc project webpage, installing the application and configuring the jack

    i had already properly set the correct sound card chipset name(snd-hda-intel) on the kermel module and configured to load everytime is boot

    installed all the dependecies for jack…but i am still not knowing what i am doing wrong

    here i am going to post the info when i try load the application on the terminal:

    root@ubuntu:~# sudo echo "@audio - rtprio 100" >> /etc/security/limits.conf
    root@ubuntu:~# sudo echo "@audio - nice -10" >> /etc/security/limits.conf
    root@ubuntu:~# echo "/usr/bin/jackd -d alsa -r 44100 -p 256" > ~/.jackdrc
    root@ubuntu:~# idjc

    update:jun30,2011

    i had upgrade ubuntu to ubuntu studio and have pulseaudio interacting with alsa but i belive some how pulseaudio also use a dependency (correct me if i am wrong) call libjack-dev which also use jack, so everything works good withthe other applications as hydrogen, audacity, banshee etc (as also playing one on to of the other) but when i install idjc automaticly install a dependency call qjackctl which replace the one is working and then nothing works no more…no even idjc…so i really want to understand this if is any explanation about it

    update july03
    i belive i finally manage to connect IDJC to the audio server after replacing jack2 for jack1 in Qjackctl while i was installing pulseaudio

    but now all i just dont hear anything from the speakers as a DJ or i cant get to connect myself as a listener with a media player application

    why am i getting this?

    Toggle ON recieved for signal: Play
    player_startup left
    song title: Artista desconocido - Pista 13

    updated song metadata successfully
    Seek time is 0 seconds
    not using replay gain
    frames 7765
    bytes 4099844
    toc has been read
    player context id is 1

    Player has started
    Unknown lvalue '“autospawn' in section 'n/a'.

    i guess the last line is what it kills pulseaudio but why i dont see anything about jack?

    i am posting some photos so you can have a visual look of it

    i really appretiate any good advise

    and many thanks in advance

     
  • Unknown lvalue '“autospawn' in section
    'n/a'.

    Could be pulse audio not making way for JACK. Probably best to kill pulseaudio manually and check to see that it stays dead before manually starting jack from the command line. Suggest in a console:

    jackd -d alsa -r 44100 -p 256
    

    to get JACK running and if successful then IDJC should also run with audio.

    The quoted error message suggests to my mind that JACK is trying to use an obsolete method to suppress pulseaudio.

  • I see you are not using IDJC from source because if you were you would have version 0.8.5. Get the latest from www.sourceforge.net install instructions at http://idjc.sourceforge.net.

    Didn't you say your audio was messed up from using an out of date IDJC yet after reinstalling the first thing you did was reinstall the problematic IDJC package?
