  I tried in vain to work out why the 'mute' button does not work in
  Ardour 2.8.6 packaged with Ubuntu Studio Lucid AM64. Help was
  forthcoming from the Ardour forum:
  It seems that mute has been disabled intentionally during, or after the
  installation of Ardour in Ubuntu Studio when the package was created.
  The file 'ardour.rc' in .ardour2 directory in the home folder of the
  user, contains the following entries:
  Option name="mute-affects-pre-fader" value="0"/>
  Option name="mute-affects-post-fader" value="0"/>
  Option name="mute-affects-control-outs" value="0"/>
  Option name="mute-affects-main-outs" value="0"/>
  The options should be set to 1, like this:
  Option name="mute-affects-pre-fader" value="1"/>
  Option name="mute-affects-post-fader" value="1"/>
  Option name="mute-affects-control-outs" value="1"/>
  Option name="mute-affects-main-outs" value="1"/>
  This is a bug that will affect any user who tries to use the mute button
  on ardour. The mute button is one of the most frequently used buttons on
  a real, or virtual mixer.
  99.9% of people using ardour, would want the mute function to work. The
  default settings in the Ubuntu cater for the 0.1% who don't want mute to
  Please change this option in the next release, to the values suggested
