Chagrined, I slink back to this forum. It has been about two years since I sought help getting my Ubuntu Studio system set up. It was really a snap and I've enjoyed using the many wonderful programs like Ardour, Rosegarden, Hydrogen, etc. for my musical projects. Not only that, the support I received from this forum and others was exemplary.
After being away from my computer for about a month, Jack will no longer start. I can think of no major changes I made to my system, except for blindly clicking "Install Updates" from Update Manager whenever prompted. I have searched the help docs but had no luck.
The first error in the start up message is: "firewire ERR: Error creating FFADO streaming device"
My interface is a Phonic Helix Board 18 Firewire MkII. I will post my Jack set up along with my start up error message.
Many thanks in advance for any help!
