[ubuntu-studio-devel] Ubuntu Studio Controls

I just successfully installed an Artful 1704 VirtualBox VM this
afternoon, and installed the daily build of ubuntustudio-controls
to test out the graphical bits.
It is all looking great!
1. In the "help", I am not sure of the "if requested" wording for the
2. To test out what might be meant by that, I thought I would fiddle
with the realtime setting. But it is no longer there! us-controls tells
me that RealTime is enabled. If I fire up QJackCtl, and untick RT there,
us-controls does not update its status (with any combination of opening
and closing QJackCtl & us-controls). I see from the README that I
probably should have logged out. Should the help dialogue mention this?
Note: all of this is done without Jack actually started (as I was too
lazy to choose higher later latency settings in the VM & to test a reboot).
3. As you can tell, after all this time I am still a bit of a Linux
Audio noob. Which brings me to documentation. I assume the README &
ROADMAP files need updating. You should probably add yourself to the
AUTHORS too! https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudioControls has
needed an update for a long time. There used to be a manpage
which references https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuStudio/SettingsApp which
is wildly out of date. I suppose the manpage is only really needed if
users might try and run the scripts from the terminal. The us-controls
launchpad page has a link to a wiki which doesn't exist
(http://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuStudio/UbuntuStudioControls). There is a
useful links section at the bottom of
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuStudio/ControlsRedesign which probably
contains some documentation to assist with producing a new wiki page.
Are there any others?
Next I will upgrade the real hardware machine in the basement, and give
it a proper spin.
I hope others out there reading this might be encouraged to give it a
spin. Comments gratefully received.
Well done Len!
