Indeed. apt-get install libjack-dev libresample-dev were not installed.
libjack-dev libresample-dev , so I installed.
In the installation of libresample-dev apt-get selected
'libresample1-dev' instead of 'libresample-dev'. Not sure if that is a
Also installed libjack-jackd2-dev.

But when I run menuselect in Applications, app_jack still is XXX
mentioning jack and resample unmet dependencies.

Is there any extra step i need to do?
