Question

I am getting the following message when starting QJackControl:

22:16:23.248 Statistics reset.
22:16:23.258 Could not open ALSA sequencer as a client. ALSA MIDI patchbay will be not available.
ALSA lib seq_hw.c:466:(snd_seq_hw_open) open /dev/snd/seq failed: Åtkomst nekas
Cannot connect to server socket err = Filen eller katalogen finns inte
Cannot connect to server request channel
jack server is not running or cannot be started
JackShmReadWritePtr::~JackShmReadWritePtr - Init not done for -1, skipping unlock
JackShmReadWritePtr::~JackShmReadWritePtr - Init not done for -1, skipping unlock

If I then try to start QSynth the message becomes:

22:16:23.248 Statistics reset.
22:16:23.258 Could not open ALSA sequencer as a client. ALSA MIDI patchbay will be not available.

This is a multiboot Fujitsu Esprimo, intel i5, 12  GB ram, latest updated 3 weeks ago  I have noticed similar problems under Manjaro (updated today) and I wonder whether I should somehow test my hardware. I have been using Rosegarden with my midi keyboard as midi output for years and only used Qsynth a few times, and don't even remember under which distro it was.

Now I am starting to edit a large number of '.rg' files I recorded in Rosegarden through those years and would like to be able to do it away from my midi keyboard,  using QSynth.  I tried to load different sound fonts in QSynth, and now I am starting it without pre-setting any sound font, but I think this does not matter.

I can't make any sense out of these messages.  Will be thankful for any tips.
