Hi, I’ve just installed fedora jam on my spare laptop. I’ve been using
windows for all my music, and I want to see what linux has to offer. I went
with Jam because I wouldn’t know what software to install or how to
configure it, so this seems like the place to start.
But I’m not getting anywhere using it, and the wiki doesn’t seem to have
Here is my problem: when I plug in my audio interface (I’m using GuitarPort)
I get unprocessed raw sound from my guitar in my headphones right away,
before I even start anything. (Normally I don’t hear anything until the
signal is routed through the amplifier software, but I’ve never used it in
linux before, maybe that is expected?)
I went into StudioControls -> Audio Setup -> Jack Master Setting, and I see
Jack Master Device (no USB): lists my sound card and my guitar port.
USB device that should be Master: No USB Master.
The thing is, GuitarPort *is* a USB device. No matter what I do, all I get
is raw guitar output. I feel a bit like all I’m doing is closing my eyes
and poking at it with a stick. Are there some instructions on how to set
As you may remember, I’ve been trying to get my line6 audio interface
working in fedorajam. So, I found a topic in this site linuxmao
<http://linuxmao.org/line6linux#Informations> that led me to a mailing list
from the developer
Looking through it, I find several users complaining that the driver broke
at about kernel 3.2. The dev says it’s a change to the linux driver spec
for usb that causes it, and he declines to fix it. I’m guessing this is why
I couldn’t find the driver in Debian, they’ve been purging old drivers.
At a minimum it affects these products:
Pod Studio GX
Pod Studio UX1
Pod Studio UX2
Now I see why the liveusb for KXStudio is ubuntu 14.04 - (kernel 3.13?).
So, I tried that, and my rig works fine on it. Not that I want to use
something past it’s EOL. I’m also not replacing all my Line6 equipment.
Aside from the cost, it would break my sound, I’d have to start all over
again building my sound. Nope.
I'll stick with what is working.

If you check that username, it's u/eeickmeyer, aka me. I rescued Ubuntu
Studio from near-death as well.
