pyjacksm is where it gets interesting - for me it works, but for Dan (allcoms)
it doesn't.

Sounds like the setup of $HOME/.config/yoshimi/ still needs work. Saving
session state from yoshimi via menu etc is unrelated to jack session support.
The Save Session thing allows you to reload a given configuration via a
command line param - it doesn't deal with audio/midi connections in any way.
Jack session save/load does similar/related things, but it doesn't go to
the yoshimi.state file. The jack session manager dictates where the app
should store the session data.

That doesn't sound right either. Loading a session should bring up the
relevant app(s) as well as restoring their connections.

nor am I :-(.

Thanks Alex, much appreciated.
