Thankyou for the link. I will add stuff there.

Ok, great. Is the new code in the branch?

Can I assume this is setting the file in /etc/security/limits.d/ to not 
disabled and adding the user to audio? Do we first check that jack is 
installed? :) I am saying this badly. There are two scenarios to look at.
  1) system installed from UbuntuStudio ISO
 	-all that needs to be done is make sure the user is in audio group
  2) starting with another flavour (where we have more problems)
 	-need to check lowlatency kernel is installed and running
 		might be a good place to make sure we set the
 		lowlatency kernel as default.
 	-need to check jack is installed
 	-need to check /etc/security/limits.d/audio.conf is named right
 	-need to check that the user doing audio work is in audio
 		(this may not be user 1000 who installed the system)

I am not sure, but it may be worth while bouncing through all users with a 
home directory in /home/ and a user id of 1000 or up and add them all to 
group audio.

Does this make sense? Am I missing something?
