[ubuntu-studio-users] Updates for June 2019

So, since I was running 18.04 I figured I'd get up to date since 18.10 is
getting end of life.

So, on my desktop I did the backport purge and then did do-release-upgrade
twice. And I now have a working desktop on 19.04. No errors, smooth
upgrade. Sound works as before. Cool!

But (you knew there was a but, right?), did the same on my laptop, no
errors. But, no audio devices, the PA Volume control shows only a dummy
device on the Output Devices (though, I get an AudioIPC Server on the
Playback tab when I play from say YouTube in a browser and it shows sound.)

JACK won't start, UBS Controls does not complain about anything.

Audio worked fine with with 18.04 and the UBS Controls backport...

Where do I look for clues?

> We hope that Ubuntu Studio 19.04’s release has been a welcome update for
> our users. As such, we are continuing our work on Ubuntu Studio with our
> next release scheduled for October 17, 2019, codenamed “Eoan Ermine”.
> Bug Fix for Ubuntu Studio Controls
> A bug identified in which the ALSA-Jack MIDI bridge was not surviving a
> reboot was fixed and updated in Ubuntu 19.04. As such, please make sure all
> of your packages are up-to-date.
> New Features Coming to Ubuntu Studio Controls
> We have already done a lot of work to Ubuntu Studio Controls
> <https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudio/UbuntuStudioControls> for
> 19.10, and as such we have several new features already landing:
>    - Multiple PulseAudio Bridges (for routing of individual applications)
>    - In-Window Jack Status Indicator
>    - DSP Usage Meter
>    - Quick-links to QASMixer, Carla, and PulseAudio Control
> These features are currently available in Eoan Ermine’s daily ISO images.
> After we have determined there has been sufficient testing (or 19.10 is
> released, whichever comes first), we will backport this version of Ubuntu
> Studio Controls to our backports PPA
> <https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudio/BackportsPPA>.
> LSP-Plugins Coming to Ubuntu Studio 19.10
> The Linux Studio Plugins Projec <https://lsp-plug.in>t is a collection of
> 91 Ladspa, LV2, and VST audio plugins compatible with Carla, Ardour, and
> other DAWs. These plugins are to be included by default in Ubuntu Studio
> 19.10, and are *currently available in the Backports PPA for 18.04,
> 18.10, and 19.04.* If you feel as though Ubuntu Studio is lacking in
> audio plugins, this should no longer be the case.
> For a full list of plugins available, check out the official documentation
> <https://lsp-plug.in/?page=manuals>.
> Other Items in the Backports PPA
>    - Removed ubuntustudio-gnome-branding from ubuntustudio-installer as
>    people without the default GNOME Ubuntu were installing it, undesirably
>    pulling-in GNOME packages.
>    - The default wallpaper for 19.04 was slightly “fixed” and is
>    available to 18.04 and 18.10 in the “ubuntustudio-disco-wallpapers”
>    package, along with a version without the Ubuntu Studio logo in the
>    lower-right corner.
>    - An updated package of the Calf Studio Gear plugins to 0.90.2 for
>    18.04, 18.10, and 19.04
> Ubuntu Studio 18.10 END-OF-LIFE Coming on July 18th, 2019
> If you have not already upgraded from Ubuntu Studio 18.10 to 19.04, *you
> have just over a month left to do so* before Ubuntu Studio 18.10 reaches
> End-Of-Life and will no longer be supported. Ubuntu 18.10 and all official
> flavors reach End-Of-Life on *July 18, 2019*. Mark your calendar and
> upgrade as soon as possible!
> Upgrading is available via the Software Updater and the command line
> “do-release-upgrade” tool.
> If you have added the Backports PPA, please install and run ppa-purge tool
> before upgrading for the best upgrade experience:
> sudo apt install ppa-purge
> sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntustudio-ppa/backports
