Why some Jack applications will not start from the menu, and how to fix
them (probably neither complete nor completely accurate, you get what
you pay for :-):

swami: no command line option to force jack output, default is ALSA, 
       enter preferences and edit "Fluidsynth" "Audio Driver" to "Jack"

specimen: no command line options at all, no saving of preferences
          change driver to Jack

soundtracker: no command line options (only the Gnome defaults)
              enter "Settings" "Audio Configuration" "Playback Output"
              "Jack Output"
              enter "Settings" "Audio Configuration" "Editing Output"
              "Jack Output"

rezound: there is no way to configure the default? recording is only

hydrogen: no command line option
          enter "Preferences" "Audio System" tab, "Audio Driver" "Jack"

cheesetracker: no command line options
               enter "Settings" "Configure Cheesetracker" "Audio" tab,
               "Audio Device"

amSynth: pops up a _text editor_ to set options, appears to respond to
         "-a jack" for setting the driver at startup

muse: does not have a command line option to set audio driver
      enter "Config" "Audio System" "Audio Driver" "Jack"

spiralsynthmodular: no command line option to set audio driver
                    have to configure the proper buffer size to match
                    jack buffer size

(this is from notes I took while testing things a bit a while back).
