Some of them can be configured to use jack instead of the normal alsa or
oss driver. Look at their configuration menus. If an app is pure alsa or
oss then you cannot use it at the same time as jack (jack uses the audio
device). If it works with oss you could try jacklaunch (sometimes it can
run oss apps as jack clients, depends on how the app was created).

LADCCA should run as a normal user (in the same way that Jack runs). It
is not meant to run as a "daemon" with root privileges.
