Installing NON MIXER on Ubuntu

Ubuntu Studio is a great Linux distribution for making music, it is stable, it is fast and it has tons of possibilities you can use to make a great live performance. In a live performance, it’s always a trick to get a good grip on your multiple sources of sounds. That’s where a program like ‘NON MIXER’ comes in! It’s a great mixer that enables you as a performer to sit on top of your live production. Giving you grip on mono, stereo, or even more channels per strip, and enabling you to add multiple plugins to drive the performance to its best. This article is basically a how-to install NON MIXER on Ubuntu.

Let’s open a Terminal window and enter the following commands:
$ sudo apt install git
$ sudo ln -s /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/python
$ cd Downloads
$ git clone git://
$ git clone git:// ntk

NTK is needed before building NON, so let’s install NTK first.

$ cd ntk
$ sudo apt-get install libjpeg-dev libsndfile1-dev libsigc++-2.0-dev libfontconfig1-dev libxft-dev libcairo-dev
$ ./waf configure
$ ./waf
$ sudo ./waf install
$ cd ..

Now that NTK is installed let’s install NON

$ cd non
$ sudo apt-get install liblo-dev liblrdf* libjack-jackd2-dev

To compile a special NON project, you can enter the following syntaxis.
$ ./waf configure –project=[timline|sequencer|mixer|session-manager]

To compile all NON project goodies, you can enter the following syntaxis.
$ ./waf configure

$ ./waf
$ sudo ./waf install

You can now start NON MIXER from your menu and hook it up to Qjack, have fun!
