http://ubuntuforums.org – The current version of qjackctl (0.3.8-1) on Oneiric 11.10 installs a script in /usr/bin/qjackctl which runs pasuspender before launching /usr/lib/qjackctl/ajackctl.real, which results in pulse audio suspending for the duration of the qjackctl session. This is the correct thing to do when running jackd1, because jackd1 and pulseaudio don't get along. But it is incorrect when running jackd2, because jackd2 and pulseaudio negotiate audio sharing over dbus. I'm running jackd2, so this looks like a bug to me. Any opinions or fixes? -- rec -- (Hardware)
