Exactly. This looks like libjack-dev is missing, and libasound-dev

I wonder why it'd need both, maybe the libasound is used for MIDI even
if you pick Jack for audio in/out.

Anyway, look for those two in synaptic (I don't think Synaptic is
installed by default in Ubuntu anymore, but that is probably the
