JACK routing disabled within Ardour (Ubuntu 17.04)
Either I have come across a bug, or I seem to be having some trouble understanding an aspect of the routing system with regards to JACK. For some reason, using the routing system within ardour to make connections between tracks and ports is not working. I can pull up the routing windows, see all of the tracks, see what connections are there, but when I try to make connections in those windows, there is simply no response. I click, see the green dot appear, and when the mouse button lifts, the green dot is gone and no connection is made. Conversely, I can make connections via external managers like Carla, or qjackctl, but the connections made in this way do not persist upon restarting Ardour or rebooting the system. This works fine for small projects, but is not usable for bigger projects with complex routing configurations, or when using large instruments with 32 inputs and outputs etc. I have gone over the documentation and settings many times, only to be frustrated and still unable to fix the problem. My question, is am I missing something in terms of my setup and configuration? Is there some option somewhere that I need to adjust, permissions to set, or is this a straight up bug of some sort? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
