You guessed it right! I hadn't removed the old version thinking that
the new one would somehow "take over" :) Once the old version was
removed, i was able to install ardour, thanks.

However, i now have another problem. I'm on Ubuntu, and when i removed
the old version of jackd from Synaptic, libjack was also removed. So
now when i try to run ardour (or qjackctl), it says that it can't find
libjack. I can't re-install libjack from Synaptic, as when i select
it, the old version of Jackd is automatically selected as well. I
looked at the official Jackd sourceforge page hoping to find libjack
(in order to install it manually), but i couldn't find it there. Where
can i get it?
