View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ardour will not play

January 15th, 2010, 10:35 PM
Ever since I upgraded to Karmic Koala, Ardour will no longer play. I have several projects from before I upgraded and none of them will play nor record, and also new projects will not play or record. Any ideas? The stop button is lit up constantly.

My first instinct is that this is a 'strange upgrade' bug. I have not heard of any similar behavior reports.

-Have you tried uninstalling ardour and re-installing it?
-Can you post the output of 'apt-cache policy ardour'?
-Does ardour's ins/outs appear in qjackctl or patchage?
-What happens if you start the jack transport then try playing in ardour?
-Do you have any PPA links in your repository sources?
-What process did you use to upgrade to Karmic and from which version did you upgrade?
-If you start ardour from a terminal do you see any error messages in that terminal?
