Hey, not sure if I should put this here or under hardware, but since it's really about the software...
So, I was trying to set up JACK alongside PulseAudio so that I could play around with my electric guitar in realtime on my Manjaro box. I tried following a post (tutorial) on the Manjaro Forums, but either it's got some errors or it's out of date or something, as it did not work. For one thing it said I needed to check a file called default.pa in /etc/ but there is no such file, not in /etc, or in /etc/default.
The tutorial also told me to install jack2 and jack2-dbus, but the system won't allow that, jack2-dbus conflicts with jack2 and it won't install jack2
When I ran JACK it didn't show any USB inputs, even with the guitar plugged in. It let me bridge it, but when I tried restarting it said Pulse wasn't started, then it said Pulse was started but not bridged, and would not let me bridge it again.
And now I've got no sound at all... Pulse shows no devices except Dummy
I tried the version of the tutorial using Cadence.
Not sure what I am doing wrong... right now I'm trying to kill them both to see if I can restart Pulse alone and get things working the way they did BEFORE Jack.
Ok, killing both Pulse and JACK let me restart Pulse alone and I have my normal set up back as it was... at least I can use audio again.
Anyway, if anyone knows a good, up to date tutorial for setting up JACK with Pulse, please leave a link, I would prefer a tutorial that is NOT in video format (kind of hard to follow a video tutorial about changing sound set ups if the changes kill your sound in the middle of the video)
