change qjackctl connection style on manjaro

Postby lyth » Thu Dec 05, 2019 2:35 am

Is there a way to change the way qjackctl shows the jack connections without having to compile it myself? Right now I got something similar to patchage but i prefer the old way of showing, with the two column with all the devices etc.

Thanks

Wait a minute, you sure that qjackctl changed its user interface? Have you got a screenshot? What version of qjackctl are you using?

Either you wait for your distribution to include the new qjackctl in your package manager, or
# Git Access https://qjackctl.sourceforge.io/qjackct ... s.html#Git
# Installation https://qjackctl.sourceforge.io/qjackct ... stallation
# start it as a user in the terminal without installing with:

Code: Select all

L@M ~/Path_to/qjackctl-git/src $ ./qjackctl


# or

Code: Select all

L@M ~ $ /home/USERNAME/Path_to/qjackctl-git/src/qjackctl

(without "[sudo] make install") It won't take long to compile.

@rncbc can certainly help you since he is the developer of qjackctl.

Thanks for pointing me to the screenies. I think @rncbc decided to change the connections window into a canvas because the old way did not suffice anymore. Sometimes when I use Carla I cannot get the proper connections w/ qjackctl and I have to use Carla's canvas.

P.S. Didn't know that @rncbc developed more than Qtractor (brilliant program by the way).

Is it technically possible to program qjackctl in both "new look" and "classic mode" via a selection option in the settings?

Can't you just use the aur package and set the parameter? It must take only a minute or so to compile on anything but real toaster (assuming there is a switch to change it).

Keep in mind that regardless if you use canvas or the "old way", it's just a visual presentation of the very same thing. There is no magic involved.
So, when you said

there might be bridges involved, loaded by Carla, but, that have nothing to do with the one visual presentation works while the other didn't. That's just a matter of taste.
On the road again.

Well, I just found that there is a setting to change between the visualization styles. For some reason I didn't see it until now but it means that this post was totally unnecessary. I'm sorry :(

I didn't know that, and I find it helpful. :-)
