fijidrummerboiiHi; I'm looking to install the latest lowlatency kernel from source; how would I go about doing that?00:55
EickmeyerUmm... unsupported.01:25
user554Hi, I'm looking for some advice on how to use Qjackctl. I can't seem to figure out the way to connect a midi keyboard in it.18:25
Eickmeyeruser554: Qjackctl is no longer the preferred method to configuring Jack.18:26
Eickmeyer!ubuntustudio-controls | user55418:27
ubottuuser554: Ubuntu Studio Controls is the application through which audio is configured in Ubuntu Studio. It configures Jack, sets the CPU governor, and ensures the user has realtime audio permissions. For more info, see !jack and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudio/UbuntuStudioControls18:27
OvenWerksuser554: you will probably need to use a2jmidid -e to make sure that alsa midi device show up in the jack graph as well.18:29
user554Thanks, I'll look into it.18:29
OvenWerksAs Eickmeyer has stated, -controls does this for you.18:29
user554Thank you both18:30
EickmeyerYou're welcome. :)18:31
OvenWerksAlso you will want to make sure you have the latest version of -controls, see: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntustudio-ppa/+archive/ubuntu/backports18:34
OvenWerksfor the latest version18:34
EickmeyerOvenWerks: That's mentioned in the wiki article linked.18:34
user554Nice, thanks. So installing backports presents no stability issues?18:42
Eickmeyeruser554: The packages in those backports are very minimal. Also, you're confusing the term stability. Stability, in the sense that is typically with an LTS, means nothing changes except security. It does not mean bug-free.18:43
EickmeyerThat said, the backports are fairly stable in terms of updates.18:44
user554I didn't know that18:44
EickmeyerIt's a confusing/ambiguous term.18:45
user554One more question: is it a good idea to add KxStudio repos?18:47
OvenWerksBackports are things that have already been released for the next iso release but may also be useful for older iso releases.18:48
OvenWerksuser554: yes and no.18:48
Eickmeyeruser554: We highly discourage adding KXStudio repos and cannot support it once added.18:48
OvenWerksI would not use cadence.18:48
OvenWerks(or anything that relies on it)18:49
OvenWerksuser554: there is work going on to package all usable kxstudio packages into ubuntu18:49
OvenWerksyou will find in backports Carla for example.18:49
EickmeyerCarla is also in the upcoming 19.04 release.18:52
M_aDalso about KXstudio:  NOTE: The KXStudio project is currently on a break, regular development is expected to return later in 2019. https://kx.studio/18:53
OvenWerksYa, some parts on kxstudio are quite old these days18:54
OvenWerksCarla has just gone through (is still going through) quite a lot of development.18:54
* M_aD is waiting for Ubuntu Studio 19.04 to be released18:56
M_aDmight switch back to it after all those years18:56
EickmeyerM_aD: Did you try the beta?18:56
EickmeyerIMO, the current daily works better than the beta.18:57
user554My current issue is connecting the midi signal from an instrument to a standalone plugin. Jack seems to be running but no sound whatsoever.18:57
Eickmeyeruser554: Open patchage. You'll find the connections there.18:58
EickmeyerAudio with MIDI must be manually routed to your audio output.18:58
EickmeyerCarla can also do routing.18:59
M_aDEickmeyer: no i didn't, might download the daily build though later on. On a sidenote, i was involved with the ubuntu studio project back in 2012/2013 as iso tester iirc.19:02
EickmeyerM_aD: We could definitely use some testing this cycle! Expecting RC any hour now.19:03
M_aDcool, i could give it a spin19:05
EickmeyerRosco2 is our testing lead currently, with me acting as such in his absence.19:05
EickmeyerHe's away on a trip right now, so chances are I'll have to handle this one.19:06
EickmeyerM_aD: Feel free to join #ubuntustudio-devel. :)19:06
M_aDthanks for the info :) jumping into the channel in a few19:09
studio-user631hey. so i new to linux distros. for Ubuntu Studio, is there a way to check if it installed right? the last time i tried it said "Ubutu (low latency)"21:08
EickmeyerUh... stick around longer next time?21:41
M_aDthe good old bad habits of newbies: jump in, ask, leave within less than a minute22:02
M_aDthat'll never change :)22:03
