      hi..

        I got that too ..what you do is this:
      cp /usr/share/ecasound/ecasoundrc /home/youruserDIR/.ecasoundrc

      and your down the road..

      my trouble is I can't figure out how to record/multi-track ?..if you figure it out ..let me know <G>

    • I strongly advice to upgrade to version 4.0.1.

      Please tell me where is ecasoundrc in your machine. I will add that to the searching procedure.
