OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Applications Cannot Start Sound After Switch User?

Nov 5, 2010

With OpenSuSE 11.2, I would have a guest account running skype, and a media account running mythtv (both users logged in at the same time using switch user). I had skype on auto answer incoming calls, and I remember watching a movie when I suddenly heard my Dad's voice appear calling my name. That was cool!

Now that I'm using OpenSuSE 11.3 (both were using KDE), skype only plays audio when that user's session is active. Switching to the media account will prevent skype from starting to play any sound. Switch back, sound is normal. If I remember correctly, now the skype audio cuts out as soon as I switch user.

I also have a tv capture card which only STARTS to captures analog audio when the media session is active, mythtv being run by the user media. Once the show is started to record with sound, we can switch users and the show continue to record with sound.

The only thing that should be configured differently from the default install is that I compiled mythtv (it wasn't available as an rpm when I upgraded to 11.3, and haven't bothered to check since).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Switch Sound Device From Command Line In KDE

Jan 30, 2010

my computer is connected to my TV through HDMI using ATI HDMI output. I have written a small script to switch display from monitor to TV when a want to watch a DVD, but I didn't find how to switch sound from speakers to HDMI in command line. For the moment I have to open KDE system settings -> Multimedia and move sound devices by hand.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound In A Certain User's KDE Session

Dec 9, 2010

Quite some time ago I managed to get sound working perfectly on my DELL Inspiron 1720 under openSUSE 11.2 and KDE 4.3.5. Then suddenly some months ago for one of the four regular users on my system sound stopped working! KMix is always muted after KDE session startup for this user and even if you unmute it there's still absolutely no sound; in particular, the commandspeaker-test -c2 -l5 -twavdoesn't generate any sound (while I do see the printed output which doesn't contain any error messages). Even if I su to root in the very same Konsole window speaker-test remains silent!

Since sound is OK for the three other regular users I've already compared KMix settings as well as System Settings > Multimedia for each of the regular users but found absolutely no differences. BTW: In System Settings > Multimedia I have XINE set as the backend and "PulseAudio" has priority over "HDA Intel (STAC92xx Analog)" for all sort of audio output, and - perhaps needless to mention - all the four regular users are members of group "audio".

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lucid 10.04 No Sound As Normal User / But Sound OK As Root

May 1, 2010

I've got a custom compiled kernel, just built on Lucid 10.04 from the kernel sources.System works fine, except for sound.When I log in as normal user and try to play a wav file using.The sound file is being played, but I hear no sound.However, when I do "sudo -s" and become root, execute the same mplayer command then I can hear the sound.My Sound preferences shows no input device and only "Dummy Output" as output device.On the generic kernel as came with the Lucid 10.04 CD, sound preferences shows different devices.The strange thing is: when I compiled my custom kernel, I changed nothing to the sound options in the kernel config file.

OpenSUSE :: System Freezes When Trying To Switch User?

Jan 2, 2010

I have OpenSuSe 11.2 64-bit installed on my HP Compaq 6730s laptop. When I'm trying to switch user black screen appears and my system does not react on any key combinations (ctrl+alt+del; ctrl+alt+F7 ...). This was not reproduced before ATI driver installation.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound From Two Applications At The Same Time?

May 17, 2010

Its unbelivable how crappy Sound in Ubuntu is - i am suffering from this since karmic. Whenever a second appication like Firefox plys a tune my sound in Amarok dies. Even windows 3.1 was able to do this kind of Multitasking and afaik this also was possible WITHOUT this Pulseaudio desaster.

This is my config

aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: VT1708S Analog [VT1708S Analog]
Subdevices: 1/2
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Subdevice #1: subdevice #1
card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 1: VT1708S Digital [VT1708S Digital]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
(1)ch90045@cyclops:$~/cat /proc/asound/version
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.21.

This sound desaster makes me really think of buying a windows 7 license.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Applications Interfere With Each Other?

Jul 7, 2010

A friend of mine is having a problem where one application will cut off another application when playing sounds.

For example, if he has amarok playing music and pidgin beeps on a new message, amarok stops.

If he has vlc playing music, and then has amarok play something simultaneously, vlc stops.

The only related bug I've been able to find is [URL]

But I cannot even confirm that this is a pulseaudio problem. He's using an updated 10.04 installation

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound With Gstreamer Applications After Upgrade?

May 14, 2010

I installed OSSv4 replacing the default ALSA and everything worked just fine with some workarounds... until I upgraded to Lucid Lynx.

Now apps like Totem and Rhythmbox which use the gstreamer framework have no sound. Does anybody know why?

Everything else works, like gnome-sound-recorder, even flash.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To DISABLE Sound Click On Applications

Jul 23, 2010

this morning after a reboot I made a discover. Clicking on tabs, launching applications, and so on, make annoying and stupid sounds from my speakers. CLICK, BOP, BLAP! Who decided to turn these things on? I'm listening MUSIC, I don't wanna those stupid sounds bother me! Anyway, I was suddendly on System -> Preferences -> Sound and I choosed Sound Theme: NO SOUND. But those annoying sounds are already there. And there's no way to disable them! Is this a BUG or what? Is there something to do?

I also discovered another thing: clicking on items that are at RIGHT of my screen, the sound come from RIGHT. Clicking on center, they come from center. Right, right. So I realize that sounds are stereophonic. And really I can't understand why a software developer choosed to waste his time coding a piece of code to do this, instead of solving the hundred millions of bugs we're affected from YEARS.

OpenSUSE Install :: Switch User Fails On Greeter Console / Setting Now Under KDE47?

Aug 29, 2011

I am running 11.4_64, KDE47 (recent update from 46)
I have three Suse Linux pcs on my network.
I'll call them desktop, media center and laptop.

I am logged in to my desktop , I want to open a new session and log in to my media center.

From GUI, I select application launcher - leave -switch user and get a fresh kdm greeter screen.

On the Greeter screen, I select Menu - Remote Login
A window opens displaying three machines - my desktop, my laptop and my media center.
When I move the mouse into the new window to select the media center as the new target machine, the window immediately closes.

I have Xdmcp access enabled in kdmrc on all three systems(and rebooted).

This did work fine back when I was on KDE45 and KDE46.

Is there a new permission or setting now under KDE47?

OpenSUSE :: Sound Works Only For Some Types Of Applications?

Mar 9, 2010

I have used it for some times but never went behind basic use to use Internet, save files, write documents with OpenOffice...

I just installed the 11.2 version in 64-bit. I previously used a 11.1 version, and on which sounds worked fine.

I do get the login and logout jingle, and CDs play fine as well.

My problem occurs when I try to watch a video on Internet, so with FlashPlayer, and also when using Skype: I get neither the notification sounds, and a test call tells me I have a problem with the audio device.

When I point my cursor on the "sound" icon on my control board, it tells me the sound is at 0% even though it works for the above-listed tasks.

Here is what my computer has (from "system configuration"), including the last two lines I get when I click the "advanced" option:

HDA VIA VT82xx (VT1708 Analog)
HDA VIA VT82xx (VT1708 Digital)
HDA ATI HDMI, ATI HDMI (HDMI audio output)
PulseAudio
HDA ATI HDMI, ATI HDMI
HDA VIA VT82xx, VT1708 Digital(IEC958(S/PDIF) Digital audio output)

Everything has this same preset configuration: notifications, video, etc.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Hear Sound From Any Other Applications (Rhythmbox, Movie Player, Etc)?

Feb 28, 2010

I am having a problem when using Flash. Whenever I am listening to a Flash application (..... primarily), I am unable to hear sound from any other applications (Rhythmbox, movie player, etc).

The converse is also true, if I am using Rhythmbox, and then start ....., the video plays...but with no sound. I have to manually kill the app and web browser (tried multiple...Firefox, Chrome, Swiftfox) to get sounds working correctly. I am my wits end with this problem, and have just putting up with it for several months now.

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Start GUI Session As User

Mar 29, 2016

I recently installed debian 8 stretch with xfce. Since the first time I boot, I have problem starting my X session: from lightdm I always attemped 2 or 3 times before it login (it returned me on lightdm prompt after a short splash screen).

Now it stopped working: the only way I can start xsession is running startx as root. When I try as user it starts the "splash" and return me to the tty with this error message:

Code: Select allServer terminated with error (1). Closing log file(EE)

This is my ~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log

and this the .xsession-errors:

I try to reconfigure Xorg but the Xorg -configure command result in another segmentation fault.

I think that the problem could be related with old configuration (when I install this version of debian I maintain the /home partition and my previous OS was debian 7 with xfce).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Applications Recognize Gnome Shortcuts For Multimedia Keys?

Jan 8, 2011

Recently I installed MPlayer with its default gui and its interfaces SMPlayer and GnomeMPlayer. When I'm using GnomeMPlayer it responds to multimedia keys as configured in Gnome shortcuts, even if it's minimized or running in another virtual desktop. But it doesn't happen to the other two gui's mentioned above. I have also noticed that native Gnome applications or with Gnome support like Banshee and Rhythmbox rspond to multimedia keys even when the gui is closed and they are running only in the system tray. But it never occurs in non-Gnome applications like VLC, MPlayer and others. Jetaudio wich responds to these keys in MS Windows running under Wine doesn't even recognize them.

So I came to the conclusion that only native Gnome applications or with Gnome support recognize multimedia keys because, as it seems, they receive the signal from Gnome configurations. Others applications doesn't do so. Here is my question: Is there some way to make all applications recognize the configuration of Gnome multimedia keys shortcuts? (Of course it would not be fine if they recognized ALL Gnome shortcuts because they could conflict with shortcuts from another applications. The idela would be that they recognize ONLY Gnome multimedia shortcuts.)

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Amarok2 Sound Lost When Other Sound Plays

Dec 29, 2009

openSUSE 11.2 64bit
libxine1 from Packman
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)

Maybe it's just an Amarok2 problem, but whenever another app (for example Konversation) plays a sound file, the audio instantly cuts out (in Amarok2) and will not come back unless I quit Amarok2 and restart it.

Amarok2 has only the options - "HDA ATI SB VT 1708S Analog" or "PulseAudio" (which is NOT installed).

alsa-info here - [URL]

Also I am totally confused by the mixer, it has so many knobs that I am totally lost!

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Snd_sbawe ISA Sound Card Not Giving Sound

Feb 9, 2010

I encountered this on a 10.3 system but there might be similar problem with the 11 series. Having gone through the business of obtaining config info on this card via pnpdump and subsequently using Yast to configure and install it, I encountered a situation whereby the card was fully functional as far as the "Test Sound" option of Yast was concerned. However, after a reboot, it was not loaded and no sound was possible. Debugging the "alsasound" script, I discovered that the directory /proc/asound was not in place at that time and, therefore, sound was not started.

The solution was to add the module name (snd_sbawe) to /etc/sysconfig/kernel to the parameter "MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT". Seems like Yast did not see a reason to do this itself.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Always Start Scanning Ext HDD For Sound Files

Is there a way to stop this? Disconnecting or hiding the drive isn't an option as my music collection is in a folder on that drive, and there isn't enough space on my local HDD to store it.

I have followed every step I have read having to do with the alsamixer. No luck.

I have verified that alsa and linux itself are at the latest versions.
