If you want to have the sound of PA in Jack, go on this PPA and add it
in Lucid in Synaptic :

Install the package "pulse-jack" and after jack is started, launch it in
terminal. You can add it in the qjackctl (Jack Control) setup so that it
is auto-started after jackd or jackdmp is started.

For my use (since Lucid Beta) it works perfectly: all non-jack
applications (including Firefox/flashplayers) go on my RME hdsp sound
card. And the integrated sound card of the mother board is now disabled.
Great stuff!
