Hi Peeps... Tried Ubuntu Studio... while it is good as a general OS i was having real trouble trying to set up a USB input device and no one seemed able to help... or just couldn't answer on a forum for some reason... anyhow.... I'm planning to use the ALSA supported Behringer U-Control UCA202 as the recording device cause at the end of the day..... I'm just starting out... not relly used linux properly... used as a standard desktop for checking internet and email and stuff but never ventured into things like this... I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1525 - 2x1.6 dual core processor... 4gb ram... 120gb hd... but am planning to export things to an external drive to keep as much space free as possible... I think the main problem I was having was configuring jack but i'll get this OS on the system and have a look through the tutorial... any help will be much appreciated!!! Thanks in Advance!!!

does this interface work under Jack? I know that people say Alsa supports it, but I wasn't sure if Jack would be able to use it as well. }SoC{phenix

Hi, These commands will find info about your USB system. $ lspci -v | grep USB $ lspci | grep USB $ dmesg | grep USB $ lsmod | grep usb $ lsusb $ grep usb /proc/interrupts As root # tail -f /var/log/messages Watch the messages log and plug in your device. $ dmesg > dmesg-report.txt $ dmesg | less [q] to exit Cheers, dave.

Try this: - connect your Behringer U-Control UCA20 device - open a terminal with Alt+F2->gnome-terminal-> enter - type: sudo modprobe snd-usbaudio Fire up Qjackcontrol and see what's cooking. Cheers!
