A Jack server has to be running before you start the application.

Qjackctl CVS can (I tested this a couple of days) now accepts extra
arguments to start an app after starting jack, if jack is not already
running. So the menu for Ardour could now execute:
  /usr/bin/qjackctl /usr/bin/ardour
If Jack is already running you get Ardour only, otherwise you first get
Qjackctl and then Ardour (once Jack has started).
