Summary0000401: Audio mit JACK
DescriptionCGG Audio Setting Audio Output ALSA, default.
Since the integration of PulseAudio, CGG no longer connects to JACK via ALSA. Playing audio blocks playback instead.
However, if PulseAudio is connected to JACK, CGG uses it via PulseAudio although the audio output is still set to ALSA.
TagsNo tags attached.

Nö, CGG actively searches for PulseAudio and uses it if it can access PulseAudio. So the CGG setting ALSA is deceptive. By default, PulseAudio is not set to audio editing, but to ringtone output through the desktop. Due to the complexity of the configuration and the fact that PulseAudio runs as a system service, I doubt that users will change anything about this. As long as nobody hears the difference, it doesn't matter anyway. Also, and this seems to me to be the most important thing, CGG gives me console error messages that shouldn't be.

I was told the following is the way it is programmed but I am not capable of verifying because "I don't know jack about audio":

Quote: "Pulse Audio was alternative and is not superceding.
Alsa path not affected" - if you choose Alsa as the audio driver, it will work the same as before.

1) Concerns the second sentence above. It's not blocking. A bug on my side, with the change of the system shell the .asoundrc was not written cleanly.
2) As long as PulseAudio is installed, it will be used by CGG, even with the ALSA setting.
3) To use ALSA with JACK, you have to make sure that CGG cannot find PulseAudio. The error message is then: "Connection failure: Connection refused
pa_context_connect() failed: Connection refused.
