I am sure that is what the reference stated. I think if you already have Jack configured and you make no changed connections nor changes to controls, you can simply start Jack. But if you aren't going to control the configuration, why start Jack at all? No, you don't have to use a GUI (see http://linux-audio.com/jack/
) at all, but if you do want to change your configuration, you are either going to have to start a control app, or you are going to have to enter a new jackd
command from a console. Starting a control app in the middle of a session would mean that the control app would re-initialize jackd
with the configured defaults of the control app. Is that what you want? If so, again, why do you need to start jackd
at system start?
If you are configuring this for someone who is NOT computer/Mint literate, I would recommend one of the specialty Linux distros instead of Mint, such as AVLinux, Ubuntu Studio, et al.
