Installation on Debian
There no packages of laditools and ladish for Debian yet, so they should be installed from GIT. They depend on jack2 with D-Bus support, for which a Debian package exists in the Debian GIT repository.
For this procedure I use Debian version testing ("squeeze/sid") on architecture amd64. It should work for stable, too.
In "sid", jack-audio-connection-kit was renamed to either one of "jackd1" and "jackd2". It appears that package "jackd2" installs a LADISH-compliant JACK daemon (D-Bus enabled, V2 JACK API).
Please keep in mind that "sid" is unstable and packages can stop working temporarily.
Debian "squeeze", "lenny"
To my knowledge, there is no official jack2 package yet (at least none with D-Bus support). I use the "master.jackd2" branch from the Debian GIT repository. The produced packages act as drop-in replacements, and most packages depending on jack/libjack will continue to work.
Note: For qjackctl with D-Bus support (as an option checkbox Setup/Misc) you will need a version from either Debian unstable or latest source.
git clone --branch master.jackd2 git://git.debian.org/pkg-multimedia/jack-audio-connection-kit.git cd jack-audio-connection-kit debuild cd .. dpkg -i jackd_1.9.5-1_amd64.deb libjack0_1.9.5-1_amd64.deb libjack-dev_1.9.5-1_amd64.deb
As with 04/25/2010 the source package format has beend changed to version "3.0 (quilt)", and the simple build approach using "debuild" does not work anymore (since there is no "orig" tar file). The solution is to use "git-buildpackage" was a wrapper for "debuild". First, install "git-buildpackage":
aptitude install git-buildpackage
Then you can build and install the package as follows:
git clone --branch master.jackd2 git://git.debian.org/pkg-multimedia/jack-audio-connection-kit.git cd jack-audio-connection-kit git-buildpackage --git-debian-branch=master.jackd2 --git-upstream-branch=master.jackd2 --git-builder=debuild cd .. dpkg -i jackd_1.9.5~dfsg-1_amd64.deb libjack0_1.9.5~dfsg-1_amd64.deb libjack-dev_1.9.5~dfsg-1_amd64.deb
To update your GIT tree of jack2, first clean up the current build tree and then use "git pull":
./waf distclean git pull
Otherwise "git" gives error messages about unknown files.
Then I install LADISH from source as described in the installation instructions.
Note: I prefer to install everything into /usr by issuing
./waf configure --prefix=/usr
at configuration time.
As an alternative, you can only install the D-Bus service files into /etc, everything else into /usr/local:
./waf configure --enable-pkg-config-dbus-service-dir
