Bug Description

In Ubuntu Trusty I got the following error when trying to install libjack-dev

sudo apt-get install libjack-dev
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

That is correct. Try installing libjack2-dev.

Jack1 and jack2 can't (in ubuntu) coexist on the same machine. If you wish
to use jack1 then you must first remove jack2, but be prepared, anything
that relies on jackd2 will also be removed. This is not recommended. The
choice of jack1 or jack2 should be made before any jackd related sw is
installed on the machine. UbuntuStudio is designed to use jack2.

The package name has been updated to : libjack-jackd2-dev

sudo apt-get install libjack-jackd2-dev

Is this correct?
