Hi all. I have been fighting for several hours to get my Linux Mint 17 installation (which has Cinnamon beautifully working) with the amazing packages of Ubuntu Studio without having XFCE (which still doesn’t work well with multiple monitors). The solution is to install Linux Mint 17 and write this line in terminal:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get --install-recommends install ubuntustudio-audio ubuntustudio-audio-core ubuntustudio-audio-plugins rosegarden ubuntustudio-controls ubuntustudio-fonts ubuntustudio-font-meta ubuntustudio-graphics ubuntustudio-photography ubuntustudio-publishing ubuntustudio-video linux-lowlatency && sudo adduser $USER audio
(If a package doesn’t exist, just delete it from the line. It exists in Ubuntu 16.04 but maybe not in 14.04)
This line updates the package list, install all recommended packages from Ubuntu Studio (audio, graphics, video…) and the Linux Low Latency Kernel and finally adds your user to the audio group allowing you to use jack in real-time mode for low-latency audio work.
With this configuration, in GRUB you have to select which kernel you want to use for working, low latency or regular one. Here I explain the difference between the use of each one: http://askubuntu.com/a/302883/153260
I hope that this was useful and at least, I saved you a partition with Ubuntu Studio if you were working with Ubuntu or derivatives.
