http://ubuntuforums.org – I just received a laptop from a friend to fix up. I cleared the hard drive and put Ubuntu on it. This was just yesterday, so it's a fresh install. I'm trying to run PureData, but I'm having issues with it. When I try to start it, it says Code: JACK: unable to connect to JACK server JACK: server returned status 17 I downloaded qjackctl, and upon pressing the start button I get this Code: 13:08:50.488 JACK is starting...13:08:50.490 /usr/bin/jackd -dalsa -r44100 -p1024 -n3 -D -Chw:0 -Phw:0 jackd 0.122.0 Copyright 2001-2009 Paul Davis, Stephane Letz, Jack O'Quinn, Torben Hohn and (Hardware)
