Seriously, though, as Julien explained on the orca list, you're best bet
would be to use simple commands at the terminal, such as jack_connect
and jack_lsp (see jack_lsp -h for help) or use something like cliJACK
(formerly jackctl.py). It might require some reading and be somewhat
clumsy at first, but it does at least provide full control. Note also,
that many audio applications will handle JACK connections automatically
for you except in special cases, so that you may not need to do things
by hand all that often.
