[PD] Running Pd with real-time priority

When running Pd, it is supposed to run with real-time priority by default,

When launching Pd from the terminal, you usually get this printed:
priority 6 scheduling enabled.
priority 8 scheduling enabled.

I'm running Pd on an Odroid-U3, and launching Pd from the terminal doesn't
print anything like this.
I'm using Pd with jack, which I run with real-time priority (I'm using
Qjackctl and I'm clicking on the Realtime tick-box). I have the following
both in /etc/security/limits.conf and in /etc/security/limits.d/audio.conf:

@audio   -  rtprio     95
@audio   -  memlock    unlimi
@audio   -  nice      -19

The user odroir (which is the default user in the Odroid image) is a member
of the audio group. What am I missing here? Is Pd running with real-time
priority indeed, or do I need to do something more than that to run with
real-time priority?
