I like to use, and suggest the lubuntu live iso since lubuntu is pulse
only... This is an easy way to test without having to remove pulse from a
currently installed instance of one of the other ubuntu versions that ship
with pulse. Pulseaudio is just not responsible for hardware support when it
comes to using jack.. Troubleshooting is not "ridiculous" though, so I
won't throw that word around... I'll just offer another avenue of testing
rather then ripping pulse out.. Cheers!
