here is what I do:

1. Start jack from qjackctl ( )

2. ecasound -G:jack,eca,recv -c -a:1 -i jack_generic,eca -o output.wav
   ecasound> engine-launch

3. Open qjackctl and connect the ports.

If you don't want to do 3. every time, then use the patchbay feature of
qjackctl and have it do it automatically.

Hope that helps,
