tomreyntaeaad: you may need to give the lense a cleaning06:59
chris_uk[m]Greetings. After recent  update this week of US 20.04, Studio Controls is not launching either from the menu or terminal. This is what I see in terminal:... (full message at https://libera.ems.host/_matrix/media/r0/download/libera.chat/5bfd5a021821ce27723a8fa1e31d9ac98f0fdb13)09:32
chris_uk[m]Sound is working btw. 09:52
taeaadtomreyn: Hmm, any idea how to do that on an old MacBook Pro?12:26
tomreyntaeaad: not specifically, no. normally, on laptops, the lense is part of the expandable cd tray, but i would not know whether or not that is so on a macbook.13:03
tomreynlooks like those don't have an expandable tray but use a slide-in mechanism? you will know. if it's the slide-in you'll need to do this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQqbvMeqrmU13:10
tomreynif it's got a tray then it's really easy, though.13:10
tomreynmuch better guide for the slidable drive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1umIsplszt4 - but this is all about hardware - you may want to also seek help in ##hardware13:14
Iamthehuman1Day #45 on US and still going strong. Thanks for the awesome distro.15:31
Iamthehuman1I think I've noticed that if the "fallback" selection in PulseControl is something else than the target card I want for JACK when it starts the JACK will not output on the desired card. When I hear "fallback" in this kind of context it makes me think that "If another card is lost, fallback to this one". Maybe it is still in devel15:34
Iamthehuman1I'll make more observations and get back on this one if I can figure out more clearly why sometimes there is no audio output when JACK is running. In PulseControl I can see the level meter bouncing, but zero physical sound output15:36
Iamthehuman1Really nice distro... I was on Kubuntu from 2011 to 2020 and then KDE neon for 9 months till I finally took the leap of faith that I can use US even with the TB3-dock, easily dislodging connectors and everything 15:38
EickmeyerIamthehuman1: When JACK is running, Pulse has to be "patched" to your output. Open Carla, go to the patchbay tab, and drag a "wire" from the pulse output to your speakers.17:20
Iamthehuman1Ok thanks Eickmeyer. I'll pay attention if that is the problem, but I think they are connected automatically18:24
Eickmeyer[m]Iamthehuman12: Not necessarily. Also, check that the hardware actually has volume up in qasmixer or alsamixer.18:26
Eickmeyer[m]Iamthehuman1: Not necessarily. Also, check that the hardware actually has volume up in qasmixer or alsamixer.20:26
Iamthehuman1thanks Eickmeister (did I spell that right?), alsamixer is definitely a useful thing to balance the "PulseAudio volume vs. the JACK audio volume"-ratio when used in conjunction with the multimedia volume up-and-down keys.21:56
Iamthehuman1I live in an apartment building, so I kinda need to keep the kling-klang down a bit at nights21:57
