Title: Hangs During Initialization When Running Under Crouton

Detailed Description:

When using the application on ChromeBook, running under Crouton, it hangs during initialization

Cause Of Problem:

The application does a “ps -ef” command, to find out if JACK is running while using the Java Sound Synthesizer (which could hang the system). When running under Crouton, this command hangs. This is only a problem when running under Crouton, and started happening around March of 2021. It used to work under Crouton, and it works on all other Linux systems.


Run the application under ChromeOS directly (not under Crouton), or on Gallium OS.
