+Jack Meter is a basic console based DPM (Digital Peak Meter) for JACK. The
+author wrote it for quickly checking remote signal levels, without having
+to run X11 to use a pretty graphical meter such as meterbridge.
+Note: the package is called jackmeter, but the actual binary is called
+jack_meter (with underscore).
+This package uses POSIX filesystem capabilities to execute with
+elevated privileges (required for realtime audio processing). This
+may be considered a security/stability risk. Please read
+ for more information. To disable
+capabilities, pass SETCAP=no to the script.
