Bitwig will not close in ubuntu 15.10. Xing out the window, file->quit will not close the application. I can kill the bitwig program via system monitor or top (in terminal), but the process "Bitwigstudioengine" cannot be killed and seems to be a "zombie". Frustrating since everything else works great! Ubuntu 15.10 even automatically detects my USB audio interface (UA-101..which i had to struggle to get to work in Arch linux). Anyone else had this problem? using Bitwig 1.3.6. I've re-installed both bitiwg and ubuntu a few times and the same thing happens...not every time..every second or third time i use it.

Hey, I tried 1.3.5 and had the same issue...but 1.3.4 still works perfectly. Could be something about my audio interface compatibility....or maybe i should roll back to 14.04. anyways it's a great program ..even the 1.3.4 release. Thanks!

OK. After lots of work, I figured out it was a problem with a MIDI interface (iConnectMIDI). For some reason that device would randomly crash the audio engine and JACK and the edirol UA-101 interface. I have no idea why, but now i can use 1.3.6 without problems and it's running smoothly. Pulseaudio and jack are friends and it's great! runs better than on the windows side of my laptop....which i can now get rid of.

It's a bug in Bitwig Version 1.3.6. Re-installed 1.3.4 and everything works perfectly.

I have Bitwig 1.3.5 and not have problems, the version of Ubuntu I use is 14.04 LTS.

Sorry, I have 1.3.6 :)
