Hey, I am new to SuperCollider, and I cannot get it to work.
Everytime I try to boot the server in the beginning, it just says:

booting 57110
jackd 0.122.0

could not initialize audio.
RESULT = 1
ERROR: server failed to start

I have looked around the net for quite a while, but every other person that I found had another error message with it, which I dont (or does it appear somewhere else?).
What I have tried:

  • There are no other proccesses of scsynth running
    -The port 57110 is not blocked by any other application
    -starting jackd by hand

I am running Scide on Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit, my sound card info is:
0 [PCH ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel PCH
HDA Intel PCH at 0xc2610000 irq 45

Does anyone know what I have to do? Thanks

Ok, I seem to have fixed myself. The problem was that jackd did not have realtime scheduling rights and my user wasn't in the audio group
