Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gtk-recordmydesktop - Could Not Open / Configure Sound Card
Jan 13, 2010
I've just downloaded gtk-recordmydesktop and when I press record a split second later this message comes up: Recording is finished recordmydesktop has exited with status: 768 Description: Could not open/configure sound card. if I need to download anything extra from the repos or something I have to do in system settings.
I want to do two different things in gtk-recordmydesktop. 1, record directly from the soundcard (so no distortion from speakers or microphone).
2, record from a usb microphone.I can do (1) just using sound recorder already, but of course no video.
As far as (2) is concerned, I set advanced->sound to pulse, DEFAULT, or hw:0,0 or hw:x,y (x and y are any combinations of 0, 1, or 2). (all the hw combinations cause gtk-recordmydesktop to crash)
I have a choice between the motherboard (STAC92xx) and the CMI8738 PCI card. (only the latter sees the usb microphone for some reason). The CMI8738 shows up as card 0 in /proc/asound.
Any idea of where I can find what numbers to put in gtk-recordmydesktop->advanced->sound? I am feeling rather stupid, but I couldn't make much sense of what I have found on google.Plus. I am using fedora core 10 but with a 2.6.29 kernel and I am only running pulseaudio.Jack looks complicated, but is that the only way to go.
How to configure sound card in opensuse 11.1. I tried some of the solutions like alsaconf but its not working .... Also please tell me how to find model of sound card that I have in my laptop. Laptop that I am using is DELL inspiron15r, core i5.
I've been trying to make screencast, but I also want it to capture the sound coming from the computer; In other words, I do not mean the microphone. I tried changing the sound device from DEFAULT to pulse with no avail
I am currently trying to start doing some screen casting and having a problem with audio recording in gtk-recordmydesktop. The problem is that I need to record both; my computers audio card output, and my mic input at the same time. As of now I am able to record one or the other.
Actually I had solved this problem back to 8.10, but now on maverick, none of the tricks have worked. Either I have a low sound and the speakers keeps going on with the headphone plugged in, or there is no sound at all. On this thread:Quote:http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=995940I had it solved, but now, none of this configurations seems to work, and something has changed as you can see, this was my old aplay -l list:Quote:
aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC888 Analog [ALC888 Analog]
I am using FC6 on my system, I tried to configure the soundcard using, system-config-soundcard utility. But once I type system-config-soundcard from my shell, it doesn't start at all. However its not showing any error also. What can I do next?
I have configured my sound drivers many times. After doing this i am able to listen a sound. But after booting there is necessary to configure them again. So is there a any way for permanent configuration.
I have been using Ubuntu as my main OS on my desktops for a couple of years now. Started off with a HP with a Creative Labs XiFi soundcard, but am now using a Dell with a Creative Labs Audigy. Sound worked perfectly on the Dell since a clean install (about 7 months ago). I turned it on a week or so ago, and no sound! Even the little sound indicator in the notification area has gone.
I am setting up a mythtv/xmbc box on Ubuntu 10.10 (natty does not install on my hardware). I have a Sabrent TV PCIRC tuner card, which seems to work fine with the proper card and tuner settings. My on-board sound is HDA-Intel surround sound, which I have configured as analog duplex.
Currently the sound works fine through my speakers plugged into any jack on the back of the PC (two speakers, one jack). I can watch ripped movies and listen to music. The TV tuner is pumping sound from its external jack -- if I hook it up directly to the speakers it works fine. I can feed the Tuner's sound to the line-in on my motherboard, but nothing comes out. In the sound manager, i have the input device selected and the input level shows that the sound is coming in through the connector, and I can test the speakers and they work fine, but they don't seem to be communicating that the sound coming in needs to be pumped out through the speakers.
I have installed xubuntu version 10. My sound card is a Yamaha dS-1S, and seems to be properly configured. Alsa mixer doesn't indicates any error. However, I can't manage to get any sound. I have checked that jacks are correctly plugged.
Either recordmydesktop produces corrupted files or nothing (mencoder, ffmpeg, kdenlive, pitivi) can open it. (How come totem can?) I need to just stick some text and some sound on this clip but nothing works.
I have suse 11.4 installed and I wish to replace the on-board sound chip with an add-on sound card. The following are available at my local shop but they cannot advise whether any will work on Linux Suse 11.4.
Anyone know which of these cards will work on Suse 11.4?
Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Asus Xonar DS
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.
I recently installed the x64 rpm of OSS on my Opensuse 11.2 installation (alsa does not have drivers for my lynx card). Sound works beautifully in KDE (login sounds, apps produce sound, etc), EXCEPT for firefox. I can get no sound at all from firefox. I am baffled at why only firefox does not play audio.

I have decided to move my laptop over to openSUSE after a terrible experience with Vista. I have some experience with Ubuntu on a desktop, but I'm a brand new suse user. I installed 11.3 but haven't been able to get any sound out of it.
The laptop is a Compaq Presario CQ45-307tx (more specs at link below) Product Specifications Compaq Presario CQ45-307TX Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (Brazil - English)

So i just upgraded to ubuntu 9.10 and unlike ubuntu 9.04 its able to connect to my wireless N router. BUT if im making tutorials for ubuntu ill need a desktop recorder. unfortunately on the ubuntu software centre it wont let me install RecordMyDesktop.
i just had to switch from 10 to 11 until 12 comes out, and after setting up asterisk, i noticed VERY VERY BAD sound quality, mostly comprised of severe jittering. I noticed that the way Fedora lets you work with your sound devices in 11 is way different (nicer, but obviously not complete) than ever before, and i am using the same asterisk configs as before, so i'm positive that this is NOT an asterisk issue, and does NOT really belong in this forum; however, only asterisk users will be able to replicate or identify with this issue.
Have any of you 11 users had this happen to you, and if so, did you figure out how to solve it? I'm sure that i can *try* adjusting asterisks jitter buffer settings, but like i said, it was NEVER an issue before 11... Another clue would be that i cannot get crap like gtk-recordmydesktop to produce sound (but that may very well be another issue; however i doubt it)...
after the installation, the card was detected and /dev/video0 was created but dmesg indicated that the card is not among the ones listed as supported and since card did not have EEPROM, the card was not up and running right away.i have edited /etc/modprobe.d/tvcard.conf and added options saa7134 card=3 tuner=14
$sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/tvcard.conf
options saa7134 card=3 tuner=14
Then CTRL+X to exit
still it did not work. tvtime would always say no signal and tvtime-scanner never picked up any channels. then i followed instruction given by rsramkee [URL]. edited saa7134-cards.c and deployed new kernel linux-18.104.22.168 with changes.i rebooted machine to windows selected one channel in tv tuner software of windows, again rebooted machine to ubuntu (i have dual boot windows XP and ubuntu 22.214.171.124). tvtime able display video of channel that is selected in windows OS (No sound), but not be able to tune any other stations.In mplayer able display video of channel that is selected in windows OS with sound.
i'm not be able to tune any stations using tvtime and xawtv. if channel is not selected in windows OS for more then 1 hour then tvtime displays message no signal, same message in tvtime-scaner (No sound).
I use Kubuntu 10.10 and I'd like to know what to configure (say in daemon.conf - PulseAudio) to get the best sound quality & the most out of my sound card. By the way, I don't have any sound problems. I just want to get the best results from the built-in speakers & when I connect my laptop to external speakers. I have a Sony VAIO VGN-NR32M laptop.
I've been trying to configure this generic remote that came with a TV tuner card (saa7134) a while ago but I haven't been able to do so. The thing is that the remote works, in fact some buttons are recognized properly... but some are not. I'm not using lirc!, from I have been reading there is support for generic remotes in the 2.6.31 kernel, besides, i can't configure lirc, it doesn't let me load the kernel modules to start up the daemon for the ir. is there a config file for the button mapping of the native remote support in kernel 2.6.31?. Been searching it but couldn't find it.
I've been playing around with my settings for ages now but I cant get GTK-recordmydesktop to record anything other than my mic. Ideally I need the mic and the computer sounds to be recorded, any ideas how this can be done? I've googled around but nothing really helpful comes up. Also, if you need my hardware info, just tell me the command and i'll post the results.
I have moc running well in Debian 6. However, I cannot get moc to playback music via my USB DAC card, it only plays back through my soundcard. I use ALSA for playback.Is there any way that I can configure moc to play music through my DAC card as I do through Audacious?
I Have a satellite card Twinhan Azurewave AD-SP200 (1027) DVB -S and i do not know how to configure it .I found a patch for my card but i do not know how to use it .Patch I work with Ubuntu 11.04 ( X64 )Kernel 2.6.39-0-generic
Does Recordmydesktop have a file size limit? I'm considering using the Zero compression setting to keep CPU usage down, but I don't want to run up against a 2GB or 4GB file size limit. While I know some filesystems impose this limit, most screen recorders I've used have a 2GB or 4GB limit when recording, regardless of the filesystem.Is this an issue with Recordmydesktop
