Hi,
Here is what I get as a user:
http://bpaste.net/show/149672/

the permissions for the directory are such:
Code:
ls /dev/shm/ -lhd
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 40 Nov 14 11:12 /dev/shm/


The user gentoostudio is a member of these:
Code:
groups gentoostudio
wheel audio users realtime kvm gentoostudio


/etc/fstab has this inside:
Code:
none                   /dev/shm      tmpfs     defaults            0      0


What should I do to start qjackctl as user gentoostudio?

Thanks
Agrypa

Code:
emerge sudo
visudo
, add your user to wheel, then sudo qjackctl.

This will elevate your privileges and allow writing to shm.
