With that out of the way, the mainline development branch can be found here.

Specifications of the Ubuntu Studio Settings App

This is a small app proposed to provide users access to commonly hand-edited settings on a A/V production system.

Completed Features

  • Memlock - "@audio - memlock 512000" will be able to be changed in /etc/security/limits.conf
  • Enabling access to firewire (both for video cam and sound card),
    • Changes /etc/udev/rules.d/40-permissions.rules (for better or for worse)
    • Enabling this on a multi-user/network PC is a major security issue! Use at your own risk!

Proposed Settings

Rejected Features

See lp: #172923 for rational.


We will base the UI off of the "Appearance" preferences. Something like this but smaller:
