Ubuntu :: Removed Pulse - No Media Keys

Oct 3, 2010

I removed pulse because of an issue with HDMI sound, that issue is completely solved now that I'm only using ALSA but I have two issues:

1. My media keys don't higher/lower/mute volume

2. When I go to system -> preferences -> sound, it just comes up with a "waiting for sound system to respond" (but my sound works fine, everything is smooth without pulse other than these two issues)

Fedora :: Removed Pulseaudio - Now Desktop Shortcut Keys Don't Work

Jul 31, 2009

I removed pulseaudio save for the libs, and now I can't lock down my desktop with ctrl+alt+l anymore. I can still lock the system with the menu (System > Lock Screen), but it's kind of annoying. Removing pulseaudio has cleared up all of my mplayer stutter issues, but I would like to be able to use the keyboard shortcut keys. Here's the command I used to strip out pulseaudio:

rpm -e --nodeps alsa-plugins-pulseaudio-1.0.18-3.fc11.i586 pulseaudio-module-bluetooth-0.9.15-14.fc11.i586 pulseaudio-0.9.15-14.fc11.i586 pulseaudio-utils-0.9.15-14.fc11.i586 pulseaudio-module-gconf-0.9.15-14.fc11.i586 xine-lib-pulseaudio- pulseaudio-libs-glib2-0.9.15-14.fc11.i586 pulseaudio-module-x11-0.9.15-14.fc11.i586 gnome-bluetooth-2.27.5-1.fc11.i586 bluez-4.37-2.fc11.i586

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Set Media Playback Keys As Hotkeys For VLC?

Jul 31, 2010

I've seen a couple of unsolved topics on this while researching, but they're all old and I'm hoping somebody's found a solution by now.My laptop has the following keys that I want to assign as global hotkeys to VLC Media Player so that I can use them for... well, for their intended purpose:

Play/Pause (aka XF86AudioPlay)
Prev Track (aka XF86AudioPrev)
Next Track (aka XF86AudioNext)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Amarok Ignores Media Keys

Aug 21, 2011

Updated Ubuntu 10.04. Amarok 2.3.0. Dell Inspiron 1526.My laptop has next, previous, and play/pause buttons that I would like to work with Amarok. Amarok's default configuration appears to globally map these buttons exactly as I would like. Amarok calls the buttons Media Next, Media Previous, and Media Play. If I specify a custom mapping and hit the button, it maps the Media Next, Media Previous, and Media Play as expected. (And indeed if I try to some other command to this, Amarok warns me that it's multiply defined.) Clearly Amarok is capable of seeing these inputs.

However, they simply don't work. Outside of setting a custom key, Amarok does not respond to them, even if Amarok has focus. If I change the mapping from Global to Shortcut, they still don't work.I found some online discussions about this, but all appear to be Amarok 1.x era. The configuration settings appear very different and not relevant.Can anyone suggest on how to get these buttons working in my Amarok?

OpenSUSE :: Media Keys Don't Work In Aqualung

Apr 4, 2010

I wanted to try out Aqualung, and I like the program, but with one big drawback: the media keys at the top of my keyboard don't work with it. Is there something that needs to be done to enable those keys, or is this a bug with the program or my computer?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: KeyTouch Looks Fine But Media Keys Don't Work

Jan 2, 2011

I have a logitech dinovo wireless keyboard with those extra multimedia keys on it like Volume Up, Volume Down, and Mute. They didn't do anything so I installed KeyTouch. I was able to select my keyboard from the list in KeyTouch, and if everything was working right then at that point all my extra keys would work. But they still didn't do anything. So I went into the Keytouch editor to make my own custom profile. You click add to add a new key and then it asks you to press a key. So I press the key (Mute) and it recognizes it, and then you select what action you want it to do. I did this for Mute, Volume Up and Volume Down. But yet they still don't work!

Now obviously it detects my key presses (keycode) just fine when I added the new key. So it should do the assigned action when I press that key. What I *want* it to do is mute or change the volume of the Headphones. But as I said that wasn't working at all for some reason. So to narrow it down I instead set the Mute key to simply launch firefox. But it still doesn't work. So there is some disconnect... in the keytouch editor it's detecting the key just fine, but afterwards when you press Mute it doesn't do the action it's supposed to.

General :: F3 - F5 Keys Incorrectly Behaving As Audio Keys / Remap Them To Original Meaning?

Apr 17, 2010

I don't know if this is a configuration issue or a hardware issue, but I have a Kinesis Advantage USB keyboard and for some reason the F3-F5 keys aren't responding as they used to. They don't respond to anything and, when I tried using F5 on Emacs, it said <XF86AudioNext> is undefined, so I guess it's a weird mapping problem.

Any idea how I could remap them to the original meaning?

General :: Re-mapping Non-standard Keys To Modifier Keys?

Apr 7, 2011

I'm running Debian (Squeeze) and I have a toshiba portege m700. It has five buttons on the front just under the screen, which are the only ones accessible when you flip the screen over into tablet mode. One of them is for rotating the screen, and another is for switching to external display. I want to remap the remaining three to control, alt and super so that I can use shortcuts with the stylusThe problem is, when I used showkey to find out the key codes, I found out that each button generates more than one key code:Button 1:

key 126 press >> super_r, although this is distinct from the actual super key (125)
key 7 press >> 6
key 7 release
key 126 release

Ubuntu :: Change The Mounting Point Of A Usb External Drive From '/media/disk' To '/media/Movies'

Jan 16, 2011

I was trying to change the mounting point of a usb external drive from '/media/disk' to '/media/Movies'

Here is were the stupid part takes over... I right clicked on the desktop icon for the device and selected Properties. From there I selected the Volume tab and in there I changed the mounting point to '/media/Movies' It accepted it and said the changed would take place when I unmounted it and remounted it. However, when I did this it now says it cannot be mounted as it says mount_point contains invalid characters usually /

Unfortunately, now I cannot get back into the properties to remove my error.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pulse Audio On Top At 100% Cpu Usage?

Mar 25, 2010

I have Intel core 2 duo machine running Ubuntu Karmic 64-bit.

Whenever I play a mp3 on rythmbox and use the "top" command, the pulse audio is at top at 100%.

Is it trying to break my system just by running a mp3?

Is my system not able to detect two cores? or Whatever?

It's just unbearable.

Here is the output of top command:

laxman@Cray-Jaguar:~$ top

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Alsa Works - But Not Pulse

Jan 27, 2011

This is a fresh install of 10.10 (although I had the problem on 10.04 as well). I have installed MythTV on here (via apt-get, its not MythBuntu), and use the system primarily for that. Myth works great, sound in everything, no problems.

However, not much else can play sound. Firefox (.....), totem, mplayer, all nothing. Either just no sound or crash. If I can set them to use Alsa (eg: VLC), then they work.

System is an Asus P5B and on-board sound. I've also got an Nvidia GT210 and would like to use the HDMI out, but can't get anything at all to go through this. Don't know if thats related or not. Sound problems existed before adding the GT210.

One strange thing is, I can go into Preferences -> Sound -> Hardware and click "Test Speakers". Of course nothing plays. However, if I then set the onboard card to "Off", and then back to "Analogue Stereo Duplex", then click "Test Speakers", the left speaker works (right is still silent). But from then on, Pulse apps can play sound, until next reboot. Having FF open on a ..... video or something similar prevents Myth from playing sounds however.

What can I do to get sound working sanely? I don't need optical out, surround or anything. Simple stereo will be fine at this point, via either the onboard or the GT210.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Redirect Pulse Audio Through Ssh?

May 20, 2011

I would like to redirect pulseaudio sound through ssh to a local client while seeing content through a vnc connection. Something like this:

Client: ssh -L 5901:localhost:5901 user@server.net
Client: vncviewer localhost:5901
Server: Run a web browser with flash content on the server through vnc, but sound is redirected to the client.

A good example is Facebook flash games, most flash games require flash player 10 but my local client only supports up to version 9 because of the architechture.

Why? A number of reasons:

- The local client is not powerful enough to run flash content

- The local client has an architechture that flash does not support, eg ARM, PowerPC, etc.

- Save battery power - use the resources of a server instead of the client.


Both the client and server have pulse audio installed and working. The server does not have a physical sound card installed but the client does.

Server: Ubuntu 10.04
Client: Ubuntu 10.10

I have tried these links so far: [URL]

Software :: Media Streaming Between WMP And Media Players (preferably Amarok)?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pulse Errors In Mplayer After Upgrading?

Apr 30, 2010

After upgrading to 10.04 I get the following pulse error in mplayer before it starts.

bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)


Not a biggie since I get both sound and video, but it takes a bit longer to start the file then before. Also Kde tells me that the sound card "pulse audio" is no longer connected although pulse seem to live just fine.

Ubuntu :: Pulse Audio Volume Control GUI Flashes On Then Off?

Jun 26, 2010

When I hit the Pulse Audio Device Chooser icon and then click on 'Volume Control' the volume control GUI flashes on for long enough for me to realise it has flashed on and then is gone again! If I run the chooser as root from a terminal (sudo padevchooser) I get this response when I hit the error:


** ERROR:(pavucontrol.cc:339):void StreamWidget::setVolume(const pa_cvolume&, bool): assertion failed: (v.channels == channelMap.channels)

Strange thing is, I have spent a lot of time working on my wife's laptop and Pulse Audio was working great (after many brain twisting, hair ripping hours of working on it) and indeed is still working despite the lack of GUI. This is all good except I want to change the output device for ringing in Skype and this is where I need to 'Move Stream ...' and can't get to it.

Ubuntu :: Skype : No Sound With Pulse, Distorted With Esound?

Dec 5, 2010

I've been working at this issue myself for two days and still haven't come up with anything. On the default system config with Pulseaudio, Skype 2.1 has absolutely no sound, worse, if I call, or somebody calls me, the program becomes unresponsive and I end up having to either reboot or log out and in again. The only option Skype gives me in the sound settings for anything is PulseAudio Server (local) which, (obviously) is incorrect.So after a few hours of trying to sort it out with pulse, I found a workaround involving the REPLACEMENT of Pulse with esound following these commands in a terminal:


killall pulseaudio
sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio
sudo apt-get install esound
sudo rm /etc/X11/Xsession.d/70pulseaudio

This works to an EXTENT. I have output sound, Skype makes all it's little beeps and blips and what-have-you, I can hear the other person clear as day,and I'm able to select different sound card settings now. But when I talk to someone or call echo123, my voice comes through choppy, garbled and extremely distorted.Words are run together at a super fast pace, and sometimes even quickly repeat.So then I tried yet another supposed workaround, this involving modifying .asoundrc as seen here:

#asym fun start here. we define one pcm device called "dmixed"
pcm.dmixed {
ipc_key 1025
type dmix[code]...

After applying this, I not only changed my settings to asymed, but ALL the new settings it gave me. This time my words are run together AND I sound like some kind of deep voiced monster.Now, once and for all, to save me another two days of searching through google and topics with unanswered pleas for help, can somebody tell me what is going on here and how the hell do I fix it? T_T.I'm running Skype 2.1, (latest build) on Xubuntu 10.10 with a C-Media CMI8738 sound card. Sound works on all other applications and the microphone is solid, since I just switched from Windows and it worked before now.

P.S. just to avoid people thinking I'm stupid and asking this, yes I am positive that none of the sound settings are on mute. XD

Ubuntu :: Pulse Audio Failures Running Kubuntu 9.10

Feb 23, 2010

I'm running Kubuntu 9.10, and I like it (yay!) But I've been having issues with sound. Especially under system load I've been having an error where it says that the device analog 9xxx has failed falling back to digital, then it says almost immediately device digital 9xxx has failed falling back to analog. At this point any programs playing sound seem to retain that ability as long as I don't close them, but any programs I open have no sound. This applies to webpages and flash, as well as internal programs. I have also been having issues with video, no errors, but the video skips and freezes. Flash video occasionally crashes and any flash games that submit data (e.g. high scores) to a remote system crash my browser.

I end up having to pause the video and move it back several frames, then wait as if it had to load from ..... for a while, and it will run again for some time. My hardware is a dell inspiron e1505 on which the only things I have done are to replace a broken monitor and upgrade the ram (that is, after I broke windows too many times and converted to Linux. I don't have more error data for you, I simply haven't had the foresight to stick it into a text file yet. The error is displayed in the Notifications and Jobs button in the system tray, which is not well suited to copying and pasting, and I'm admittedly unsure as to how to find the error. I learned BASH on Sun unix at my local college and I still haven't quite learned all of how to speak ubuntu's terminal.

OpenSUSE :: Pulse Audio Libraries Are GONE?

Sound is working fine though....I wasn't using Pulse to begin with, but don't understand what happened to them....think they got deleted in going to KDE 4.4.1 rel 228 today. Should I have those libraries installed for any reason? If so, what should I install?

PS: If I go to Yast, under multimedia, I know longer see Pulse as an option...only hda_snd_intel or whatever

Ubuntu Multimedia :: High CPU Load On Skype With Pulse Audio

Jul 16, 2010

Just noticed that during calls skype uses ~30-50% cpu, + pulseaudio uses ~20%. I found some old threads on this like [URL] Or [URL]. The former suggests to purge pulse and use alsa/oss instead. The latter suggests changing mic in skype to DeviceXX and tweak the pulse.conf
There's also a launchpad bug on that with status Confirmed->invalid (due to "problem fixed in skype 2.1 beta") but looks like it's not (I am using 2.1 beta)

1. Does any1 has this problem?
2. I can't try 2nd link's approach as my skype has only PulseAudio in the settings, so I can't select Device or anything else!
3. Should I try to remove pulse in favor of ALSA? I'm pretty happy with pulse otherwise that this issue, I use it to record sound out of my sound card and I'm not sure if I can do this with alsa/os.
