I agree that jack2 should be considered as default Manjaro JACK package as it may help new users
but there should be more input from the JACK users in the community before this as there are many packages for JACK i do not know about
if a user installs Cadence to work with Pulseaudio (recommended by Arch wiki - PulseAudio through JACK) Cadence will not work without jackdbus support
it is not difficult to resolve by replacing
...or use QjackCtl which will work with any version
but setup has to be different if D-Bus is not available
is this why JACK is considered complicated or difficult?
user has to consider which JACK package to use before they even start to use it
and decide on using Cadence or QjackCtl (or even ubuntustudio-controls )
is there any package or use-case that specifically requires jackd to justify keeping it as default?
i suspect there must be something or
jackd would have been deprecated
but none of the packages i use have had any problem with
