Routing system inputs to Pajam on Linux

Hello, I’m trying to use Pajam on Linux and so far without success.
My system usually uses Jack, but I do not see any Pajam inputs exposed for Jack to connect to.
I tried turning Jack off, but in that case I do not know how to route my system inputs (I have a two- (stereo) input external USB sound card) to the Pajam inputs.

Is Pajam Jack-ready? If no, how do I route one or the other of my inputs to it?

Thanks!

Hey @mux2000,
Great getting some feedback. even just posting is really appreciated.
Just wanted to say we’re looking into it and we’ll update as soon as we got something.

I think this version requires libjack0, while I have libjack-jackd2-0 installed. I’d investigate further but my setup is fragile, and I don’t want to mess it up by uninstalling crucial bits.

We’ve added JACK support in the new 0.9.1 release!
It works in our tests, but more reports are most welcome :heart:
