Ardour2 - how to play a file?

Just installed ardour2 from jaunty repos. Created a new project with default settings. Imported a wav file, and it shows on it’s own track.

Hit the space bar and nothing happens. The transport does not count. What setting needs tweaking or have been missed?


Did you try pressing the Play button?
Any error messages about Jack being killed or something like that?
Did you try starting Jack/QJackCtl and Ardour from a terminal to see error messages?
