Thanks all for the advice.

I'm not running KXStudio -- vanilla Ubuntu here, with some low latency tweaks. My lecture is on Tuesday -- highly unlikely that I would install a whole new distro and reconfigure all the software I need at this point. Also, after losing literally 7-8 hours yesterday to buggy, poorly-featured or un-compilable packages, I'm not exactly eager to try to build Qtractor or Carla from sources.

Unless somebody can provide "for dummies" instructions with a, say, 90-95% chance of success. I know that's unrealistic... just saying, yesterday, I went through three or four cycles of build... build failed... Google... install more packages... build failed again... Google... repeat... until the Google results turned up nothing useful and I still didn't have a working build. To protect my own sanity, at this point I would rather boot into Windows (and that is saying a LOT).

I have a related question, which really belongs in another thread. Shortly.
