Have you tried "jack control" (qjackctl)? It's in the regular Ubuntu
repositories, and installed by default if you've used an Ubuntu Studio
image to install your OS. With jack control, setting up jack is
actually pretty straight forward. If you still need more info, take a
look at jack's official page (, or simply google howtos.
In any event, make sure you're on a realtime kernel.

Good luck.

All the best from a fellow ukulele player, also in Sweden ;-)
