Deat Tim, your suggestions are very helpful!

I do have Rakarack v.0.5.8 -can't compile Guitarix-. And I installed 
jack_capture also. What are the particular steps that I have to go? 

When I open qjack, Rakarack appears at the Audio tab of the Connections window 
out_1 and out_2 Output ports and aux, in_1 and in_2 input port where the last 
two are connected to "capture_1" output port of the "system".

Also, Jack capture appears at the Audio tab of the Connections window of QJack 
with the "input1" and "input2" of jack_capture connected to "out_1" and 
"aout_2" of Rakarack. 

You can see all the above at the attached Connections window picture if this 
can help!

However, Jack_capture captures the sound of my cheap microphone that I am 
using for skype talking! How can I enable the TBone usb cable to be captured 
from jack_capture? Are there any options that I have to make in Rakarack?

Thanks a lot!
