    Hi, I have installed lives 0.9.8.6-1 amd64 on my Kubuntu Gutsy 7.10 x64. The installation works without any problem. When I start lives, the terminal opens and it shows the following and than "JACK tmpdir identified as [/dev/shm" and nothing more. My audio device is a creative X-fi USB and I works with other apps. What can I do to get lives running ?
    Thanks for reply, Harvey

      Alsa is not configured on your machine.

      You need to install and run "alsaconfig".

        I have installed all "alsa" I have found in the synaptic. But there was no alsa-config and when I run alsa-config in the terminal, I get the message: command not found.

          It's "alsaconf", and you have to run it as root, e.g.

          sudo alsaconf

          You might need to install some extra packages to have alsaconf.

            I'm sorry, but it isn't working

            bigdaddy@Kubuntu:~$ sudo alsaconf
            sudo: alsaconf: command not found

            bigdaddy@Kubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install alsaconf
