In my experience, Audacity and Jack never went well along with each
other. Also, recording with Audacity has been quite troublesome. I get
lots of xruns. 
For recording, I'd recommend installing Jack and Ardour. I find it way
easier to configure inputs and record with them.
Audacity is nice for light editing. Its less cpu consuming and very easy
to use.
