Hello! New to Manjaro (and Arch in general), but i’m trying several distros to see which one i’ll like best for audio production. I’ve been trying pop os for a month, and i got it kinda to work for me, but it had several annoyances that aren’t a dealbreaker but i’d rather do without.
So i’m trying an Arch based distro to see if i can make it work better (and also KDE plasma is extremely beautiful). It already has less of some of those annoyances, but like with any linux, i know i need to set it up for specialised tasks.
I’m following this tutorial to set up audio:
(can’t post links but the video is from unfa - How do i prepare Manjaro KDE for audio production?)
But i can’t get pulseaudio to work with jack, and i need that functionality.
I installed pulseaudio-jack from Pamac, but i think that needs some sort of configuration that’s above me for now and i need help.
Cadence says Pulseaudio is started but not bridged.
And when i start Jack (even if i set Alsa->pulseaudio->jack bridge), pulseaudio stops and all the applications using it stop as well.
Can anyone walk me through it?
Or point me in the right direction? Googling didn’t really yield any results i can follow or understand.
The endgoal would be to start jack at startup, and have pulseaudio bridged to jack, so i can use the computer normally, but then plug in my guitar and start recording whnever without having to start jack myself. That’s what i’m trying to do.
The audio interface (if that matters) is Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 2nd gen.
