When I am starting JACK it is now showing "Active" instead of "Started" and I am getting no sound.

I'm hoping there is a easy fix to this as I am kinda new.

It shows the following in the messages panel:

What distro are you using? –  Bruno Pereira Dec 26 '12 at 11:24
    
Flagged as off-topic? Anyone agree? "This is not about Ubuntu but about Dream Studio, an Ubuntu multimedia spinoff that apparently uses JACK packages from the KXStudio-Team PPA." –  fossfreedom Dec 26 '12 at 14:29
    
This question appears to be abandoned and unanswered, could you perhaps add more detail to your question? If this question no longer applies then you can either delete it or answer it yourself if you've solved the problem. Thanks! –  Seth Apr 5 '13 at 15:34
