this is another problem. they actually should be all toggled on by
default (at least it is here the case...). what happens if you start a
brand new session?
or what happens if you rename your .ardour2 file into something like
.ardour-old and than start a new session?
...ok i found it now! it is stored in the file
/usr/local/etc/ardour2/ardour_system.rc in exactly this lines:
<Option name="minimum-disk-io-bytes" value="262144"/>
<Option name="track-buffer-seconds" value="5.000000"/>
<Option name="mute-affects-pre-fader" value="yes"/>
<Option name="mute-affects-post-fader" value="yes"/>
<Option name="mute-affects-control-outs" value="yes"/>
<Option name="mute-affects-main-outs" value="yes"/>
so if yours looks different, just copy and paste the 'mute-affects....'
lines into the file and it shoud work.
perhaps the best way would be to remove the hole /usr/local/etc/ardour2/
directory and reinstall ardour, but i don't know about F11, so other
people might know to give you the right advice here.
