    I'm not sure this is the right place to post this question, I just made an account.

    I'm running on Mavericks 10.9.2 and I am trying to install JACK Audio Connection Kit and don't know how.

    I downloaded JACK1 Source tarball: JACK 0.124.1. (tar.gz file) from the downloads page ( and I looked all over their website for instructions to install it but I can't seem to find any.

    I unzipped it and there are folders and files in it. There are no read me's with instructions either in the folder either. I'm fairly certain you have to do something in terminal, but I have no idea what to do, I am not experienced in installing applications this way and I am new to programming.

    Has anyone installed this program before?

    I'm not familiar with JACK specifically, but the usual drill for this sort of thing is:

    cd "/path/to/the/jack/folder"
    sudo make install

    (each on a line of its own in the Terminal)
