Desktop Konnekt 6

Support Status: 
Reported to work
t.c. electronic



I work on Ubuntu since a few month and I'd like to buy the Desktop Konnekt 6... but for now, I'm not sure it'll be recognized on my PC...

Have you got some news about a Linux driver for this device??


Desktop Konnekt 6 is working on my computer. Thanks to all the developers!
It's been quite stable for a few months now, all 4 output and 2 input channels tested.
I am running:

Ubuntu Studio 9.10 amd64
jackd 0.118.0
ffado (from trunk) 2.999.0-1794M

I added the following to the configuration file (not sure if it's crucial or not)

vendorid = 0x000166;
modelid = 0x00000024;
vendorname = "TC Electronic";
modelname = "Desktop Konnekt 6";
driver = 20;

I added these lines to configuration in trunk and changed the status of this device:-)

Can you give details which parts aren't working?

BTW: Yes, these lines are crucial. Without them ffado will probably not know what to do with the device...

Can anyone post instructions of how to make my konnekt 6 work on linux(ubuntu 10.10). What should i do? Which files to change? What to do with the jack? Please!
I hope for help...

I been awaiting this to work and noticed that it is reported to now.
Doesn't seem to for me though here is my begging for guidance post

That's right, you don't need to compile anything!

Just apt-get jackd2-firewire, make some modifications as described here, choose to use raw1394 as described here, then you should be good to go.

I wrote a full tutorial which can be found here. Please let me know if there are any mistakes.

I tried following the tutorial on Ubuntu 11.04 64 bits, but Jack won't start.
Does anybody have a step-by-step howto/tutorial to get t.c. electronic's konnekt 6 working?
Thanks so much!

In 11.04 Firewire setup is more or less okay oob.

Steps I took to make Jack and t.c. electronic desktop konnekt 6 work together:

In terminal:
sudo addgroup audio
sudo adduser my_username audio

Install libffado2_2.0.99+svn1985-0lucid0~autostatic0_i386.deb taken from
Thanks (dankjewel) to AutoStatic!!!

Setup Jack, see number 4 on

It would be nice to have something like the Windows/osx "tc near control panel software" available for the built in M40 booth reverb...
