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.

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).

KXStudio is not a full distro, but a project that includes repositories 
for Debian based systems (including Ubuntu). [1]
It's been a long time since I changed the direction of the project, from 
being a distro to just software & repositories.

The process to enable those is pretty simple - just install a single deb 
file that takes care of everything.
(2 if you're using debian testing or 15.10)

Enable the repos, install the updates and any other package you might want.
No need to mess up the system compiling anything.
Any issues you can report to me and I'll fix them asap.
(Questions too I guess)

I mean, I'm not sure how this can be made any more easier..
