Personally, I use Pulseaudio with jackbridging and use jack_connect to
tell pulse where to connect it's outputs. PA is always connected
that way no matter what the dumb app does.
Lots of people don't like pulse for historical (Hysterical?) reasons. So
the other thing to do is tell your app not to connect at all and use
jack.plumbing to connect your ports when they appear to the proper places.
Jack.plumbing can be found in the jack.tools package. (jack.plumbing may
be able to disconnect wrongly connected ports as well if the app can't be
told not to connect)
Or, (but wait there's more!) set up an ALSA through port.... what the
people who don't like pulse generally use and what one of them can explain
as I always found it frustrating.... prolly because I was too lazy to
Anyway, there is more than one way of doing things. Using jack natively is
probably the best way in the end if you can figure jack.plumbing out.
Note: my wife save hundreds of dollars a month using Skype, so I have
learned to put up with pulse. She uses jack as well because her mic and
guitar use a USB IF while still using the internal outputs :P and it is
easier to do this with jack than pulse alone. Thank you for zita-a2j Fons.
