Question OcenAudio Editor - Why does it crash in Bodhi but work in Ubuntu Studio?

Hi guys,

I tried to use in Bodhi as I used to in Ubuntu Studio. I tried all 64-bit versions. As it worked perfectly when installed in Ubuntu Studio on the same Computer, the computer can not be the problem.

To put it simply for now:

In Ubuntu Studio,

seemingly, the allround ubuntu studio audio packages make OcenAudio work seamlessly. This is because ALSA, Pulse and JACK are well established and composed within themselves, with the others and the operating system as a whole.

In Bodhi,

only ALSA and Pulse obviously come only in a slim and little incoherently packaged form, obviously due to the concept of minimalism and user choice. This is especially important regarding JACK, which has to be either JACK1 or JACK2, depending on the software, system and user preferences.

For OcenAudio,

apparently JACK1 is recommended, as well as a few ALSA and Pulse connections.


So what did I do to solve the problem?

After some struggle,

I managed to make OcenAudio work once - but only by chance. But it still crashes whenever I try to only click the audio driver. It immediately freezes and collapses shortly after. There is no sign of a particular error.

According to some discord chat guidance,

I have to deal with lib-, JACK-, ALSA- and other packages/dependencies.

But I am really not sure about this. When I tried to fix the dependencies manually, I crashed an essential package which made any other apt-get and synaptic activity impossible (I forgot the name by now). I had to re-install the whole operating system. (By now, I have an external backup drive).


My question is: How can I analyse the problem properly in order to take the right actions without blowing up my system?

Kind regards,

Hello there

I tried this SW for you to reproduce your issues. I downloaded 64 bit version for Ubuntu 17.04. When I tried installing it manually, it cried for some dependency troubles but solution was easy. This is my method:

sudo dpkg -i ocenaudio_debian9_64_3.5.4.1.deb

(now some dep troubles)
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of ocenaudio:
ocenaudio depends on libqt5concurrent5 (>= 5.3.2); however:
Package libqt5concurrent5 is not installed.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -f

SW is installed and running fine. As far as functionality is concerned, I don t know this piece of SW, so I just opened some mp4 file and I heared music in the mp4 container. Do I need to try something more?

BTW: I dont have time and taste for audio sw for linux comparing but in generally I use Audacity for simple audio editing. Just mentioned it in case of troubles.
