[ardour-users] JACKD problem on Debian KDE system

I don't know what the problem is but maybe this will help... When you
log in as ordinary user (which you should always do), is jack running?
If you type the following in a terminal:
ps x | grep jack
do you get a line about jackd?
If jack is not running, try starting it in the terminal with a command
jackd -d alsa
(assuming you use alsa). What messages do you get?
You can also look at the messages window in qjackctl. Check in qjackctl
setup that the "realtime" option is disabled (in "pure debian" at least,
you need to compile and install the realtime-lsm module to run a
realtime jack as ordinary user, see the realtime-lsm-source package).
Can you stop/start jack from qjackctl?
Also /usr/share/doc/qjackctl/README.Debian says something about /dev/shm
that I don't understand, maybe it's related to your problem...
