Is this a way of allowing alsa apps to talk to jack? If so I would like
to have a go at setting it up but don't know where to start. Do I need
to compile my own libasound2, or the alsa kernel modules? (I've checked
and /usr/lib/alsa-lib doesn't include this plugin.) I'm running linux
mint, which is based on Ubuntu. I've googled for a definitive guide but
can't find one.
