Hi,

This is not really antergos related, just need some help on how to get jack to run, couldnt find much info in google, so thought maybe someone here can help.

When i execute below code

espeak.synth("Hello")

I get this error:

ALSA lib pcm_dsnoop.c:618 (snd_pcm_dsnoob_open) unable to open slave
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1052 (snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
ALSA lib pcm.c:2495 (snd_pcm_open_noupdate) unknown PCM cards.pcm.rear
ALSA lib pcm.c:2495 (snd_pcm_open_noupdate) unknown PCM cards.pcm.center_lfe
ALSA lib pcm.c:2495 (snd_pcm_open_noupdate) unknown PCM cards.pcm.side
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1052 (snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
connect(2) call to /dev/shm/jack-1000/default/jack_0 failed (err=No such file or directory)
attempt to connect to server failed

Im not sure what the problem is, but i think it is to do with jack. I dont see jack-1000 dir in /dev/shm because /dev/shm/ is empty, theres nothing in it however jack is installed in the system, but I cant find it. Arch wiki says that user needs to be added to audio groups for jack to work properly, but I dont understand how will adding user help if the program cant find jack in the location where its looking.

Any ideas on this?

Thanks!
K
