Hello Fons, hello Frank,

thank you very much for help and the info.  Now I got it to work! :)

But only with a very special tweaking:

I had to rename the folder "utils" to "utils2" and update the import to 
"utils2.kmeters" to get it to work.

Really weird, maybe "utils" is used somewhere else on my system?

@Fons: Could it be possible to add the installation info you gave me in 
the previous mail to the Readme of jacktools? I don't know it this was 
only on my system, but since I'm using LinuxMint (Ubuntu-based), this 
could be an interesting information for more people.

Now it's time to dive into jacktools... great!

All the best,
