I fear I may have deleted all of the loops in Ardour and would like to do a clean install. How do you do this?

To remove all configuration files and re-install, do the following..

sudo apt-get purge ardour
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ardour

There is a nice apt-get summary over Here

Thank you both for your help. – BJsgoodlife Jun 26 '13 at 13:56

You'll need to uninstall, clean and install it again:

To uninstall:

./waf uninstall

To clean up results of a build (objects, libraries, etc) use

./waf clean

Now, the build

./waf configure


To install again:

./waf install
