intentions <deleted><reply> I've heard that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. This saying is thought to have originated with Saint Bernard of Clairvaux who wrote, "L'enfer est plein de bonnes volontés et désirs" (hell is full of good wishes and desires). Don't buy it? It has scientific backing! See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_road_to_hell_is_paved_with_good_intentions#Studies Added by elky

cadence <reply> Cadence is an application for managing Jack in KXStudio and its repositories.

For this reason, adding the KXStudio repos to any Ubuntu install is highly discouraged. Added by hggdh
