So I've downloaded Ardour -X11 version binary.

Downloaded Jack, ran Jack before I started Ardour,

Started the program, Ardour comes up, but I just see the menu bar. Next to Ardour 2, it says "File, Edit, Window"

Those are my only options, there is nothing else.

Copied what displays on my console.

Tiger ? Leopard ?

however, the 2.5 native version seems to work pretty well.

Sorry.

Where can I get the 2.5 Native version of Ardour? Can't find it from the downloads section.
