Hello guys to all of you.

I am a very newbie with the ubuntu studio, although I use kubuntu many years 
by now as a simple user. I play guitar and I want to record my playing for 
sending it for an audition at a jazz university!

So, due to financial restrictions, I have just bought the T.BONE USB-1G from 

However, I need your help to make it work, i.e record my guitar through any 
programme, like Ardour which I am trying to learn currently!

Please, could someone guide me through the steps that I need to go, in order 
to be able to record my guitar? 

The only thing that I know to do is run on the konsole "lsusb" where I take :

alex at alex-ubuntu:~$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 0d8c:0008 C-Media Electronics, Inc. 
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 093a:2460 Pixart Imaging, Inc. Q-TEC WEBCAM 100
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
alex at alex-ubuntu:~$ 

where C-media Electronics is the TBone usb (I suggest!)

So, what do I have to do in order to be able to record through Ardour? Should 
I be able to see the usb device on QJack Connections manager?

Thank you all in advance, all help is valuable!
