Hi,

I'm interested in helping out with Ubuntu Studio development.  I'm an
experienced coder, but totally new to Ubuntu development, so I'll need
a bit of coaching.

I installed the Feb 28th build and noticed a couple of issues, which
I'd be happy to investigate further if somebody could point me in the
right direction:

1. In the installer, the font was sometimes the same colour as the
background, so that I couldn't read all the prompts.  (The GUI install
was a nice change from 10 and 11, however!)

2. After muddling my way through the install I tried to get my
Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 working.  (It is working on 11.10.)  First I
opened a terminal and typed "ffado-dbus-server" which resulted in lots
of errors, but finished with "DBUS service running" (see below).  Then
I started qjackctl, selected the firewire driver, and clicked "Start",
but the Saffire doesn't show up in the "Connections" window, and the
Saffire's "FW Active" light stays dark.  Not sure if this is a problem
with US or just with the upstream FFADO.  Here are the errors I get
from ffado-dbus-server:
