Enabling the "enable dbus" setting in the "misc" tab for qjackctl allows
module-jackdbus-detect to do it's thing except now I get this error:

Failed to acquire device name : Audio0 error : Method "RequestRelease"
with signature "i" on interface "org.freedesktop.ReserveDevice1" doesn't
Audio device hw:0 cannot be acquired..

It seems there are no definitive solutions for this online so perhaps
someone here can enlighten me?
