Use Jack and pulseaudio at the same time on Linux Mint


We need qjackctl and pulseaudio-module-jack

aptitude install qjackctl pulseaudio-module-jack

Config jack

Put in the config>options the following line in the after run box:

pactl load-module module-jack-sink;pactl load-module module-jack-source;pacmd set-default-sink jack_out
pactl load-module module-jack-sink; pactl load-module module-jack-source;pactl load-module module-jack-sink client_name=PulseAudioSinkExtra connect=no


This seams strange but it is simply to understand if we know that jack get the audio in an exclusive way in order to controll totally all the possible delay.
