Process Error - Ardour won't launch


(Al Santos) #1

Hello! I must have deleted something by accident and now when I try launching Ardour here is the message I get:

JackEngine::XRun: client = ardour was not finished, state = Triggered
JackAudioDriver::ProcessGraphAsyncMaster: Process error
Client ‘ardour’ with PID 1635 is out

My distribution/info:
|Distributor ID:|Ubuntu|
|Description:|Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS|
|Release:|18.04|
|Codename:|bionic|
Linux 4.15.0-38-lowlatency x86_64

Does anyone have any Idea how I could fix this?
Do I have to reinstall it or is there another way to fix this?

Thanks!


Ardour won't load existing sessions or new sessions (paid user)

Can you try if it works if you use Ardour without JACK using Ardour’s Audio-System: ALSA ?

It didn’t work!

When opening Ardour the recent session menu opens up. If I pick an existent or a try to create a new project with or without JACK Ardour won’t launch, unexpectedly exit…

Maybe the same as Ubuntu Studio 17.10 Problem It is apparently also an issue on Ubuntu 18.04.

try sudo dpkg -P csladspa

If that doesn’t help we’ll need more information, crash log, and/or https://ardour.org/debugging_ardour Or interactive troubleshooting on IRC.

It worked out, thanks!

There was the same problem with Ubuntu Studio 18.04.1 LTS. Your recommendation helped. Ardour 5.12.0 is now loading. Thank you!

This is appalling. The problem was fixed upstream in csound on December 15, 2017. It also indicates that the Ubuntu Studio maintainers don’t even try to start Ardour before shipping it.
