Ardour fails to start


I’ve just installed ardour, and i have problems to start is up;

I create session, then i got this message (i cant copy it):

Please note that jack is up.


It appears as though your user is not part of the “Audio” group so you don’t have realtime permissions for JACK. I don’t use Ubuntu but in Debian you would do this:

sudo adduser audio

Obviously you have to put in your own user name :slight_smile:

Or I suppose you could use some sort of Graphical User Utility to do the same thing…


Forum took out my brackets and I can’t edit my post…

sudo adduser USERNAME audio

Oh man! i titally forgot abut it! hehe it told me to relog :stuck_out_tongue: and i ws using this pc as a server today.
Hope relogging will solve this problem
