Just one of those aha experiences - not sure if anyone is interested
here it is anyway...
On my fc15 x86_64 installation I built and installed pulseaudio-1.1 from
the pulseaudio-1.1-3.fc17.src.rpm as found on
The main reason for doing this is the better emulation of alsa in
pulseaudio-1.1 compared to pulseaudio-0.9.2x.
Not only does pulseaudio run perfectly on top of jackd, but it is
possible to route alsa only apps like sunvox into qtractor/ardour.
To do this I needed the four scripts listed at the bottom of this e-mail.
I used Qjackctl to run the scripts with the following entries in the
options tab of the settings dialogue:
Execute script on Startup:
Execute script after Startup:
/home//username//.scripts/pulse-jack-post-start.sh & a2jmidid -e &
Execute script on Shutdown:
/home//username//.scripts/pulse-jack-pre-stop.sh & killall a2jmidid &
Execute script after Shutdown:
If anyone has a better way to start and stop a2jmidid, I would be
pacmd suspend true
pactl load-module module-jack-sink channels=2
pactl load-module module-jack-source channels=2
pacmd set-default-sink jack_out
pacmd set-default-source jack_in
SINKID=$(pactl list | grep -B 1 "Name: module-jack-sink" | grep Module |
SOURCEID=$(pactl list | grep -B 1 "Name: module-jack-source" | grep
Module | sed 's/[^0-9]//g')
pactl unload-module $SINKID
pactl unload-module $SOURCEID
pacmd suspend false

Thanks for the info - awesome stuff.
Just a few questions. 1. There's no reason why these scripts cannot run
with 0.9.2 right?
2. what version of jackd are you using - from the repos? or have you
compiled your own with DBUS support? (jackdbus only just hit f16
recently and you are using f15)
As for your question about a2jmidid I just pkill it also.
Another script I use in f16 that I put in my path is this: (the $1
parameter is either start or stop. pre|post in yr examples). I'm a
developer so most people won't be using a lot of these services anyway,
but you can tailor it for your needs:
fedora16:~ $ cat ~/bin/audio_services
beesu systemctl $1 nfs-idmap.service nfs-lock.service ksm.service
ksmtuned.service abrtd.service cups.socket cups.service
sm-client.service sendmail.service ntpd.service mysqld.service
httpd.service libvirtd.service crond.service sshd.service smb.service
if [ $1 == "stop" ]
then beesu modprobe -r ath9k
else beesu modprobe ath9k;
Cross posting to Fedora-music also as I think this is of keen interest
