Fedora :: FC 12 Pulseaudio Quickcam Mic Not Working?

Feb 6, 2010

I am having issue with the mic is not working with the latest pulseaudio. My mic was working before about 1 month ago and I don't remember which version of pulseaudio it was.

I looked at the pulse audio volume control and I can see my quickcam under the Configuration tab and it is set to Analog mono audio input. Then, I started skype call testing but I can't see anything under the "Input Devices" tab when it shows "All Except Monitors".

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Logitech Quickcam Not Working?

Apparently, this webcam uses the gspca2 driver. The gspca modules are loaded but if I try using a program like cheese it tells me no device was detected.

hwinfo --usb

Unique ID: YccR.9AtOl3Z230E


If I do a modprobe -rf gspca_zc3xx and then modprobe gspca_zc3xx I see the light blink a couple times, but it still doesn't work in cheese.

Fedora :: Make Pulseaudio Working In A Remote Desktop?

Nov 14, 2009

I have a PC installed with Fedora 11 and I want to use this machine headless as a music server, my amplifier is connected to this machine. After a normal installation I've changed the default runlevel from 5 to 3. I can connect from a client, using FreeNX, to this machine and I get a normal Gnome desktop. So far so good.

The problem is there is no sound. But when I log into the machine directly, still in runlevel 3 and execute the script /usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11 an make a new remote-desktop connection there is music. Is there a way to make pulseaudio working in a remote desktop.

General :: Su -c "yum Remove Alsa-plugins-pulseaudio Pulseaudio" - Distribution With No Pulseaudio?

May 22, 2011

I've had nothing but trouble with Pulseaudio in Fedora 14. I had managed to get rid of it in Fedora 10 with the command: su -c "yum remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio pulseaudio" I just don't want to have to deal with Pulseaudio anymore. It does not like my sound card and gets in the way. Is there a Linux distribution that does not use Pulseaudio ?

Fedora :: QuickCam Ultra Vision" Webcam With A Microphone?

Oct 19, 2009

I own a "Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Ultra Vision" web cam with a microphone. I have successfully installed it, I can get fedora to recognize it and even view video through all the web cam applications I've tried including vlc, cheese, and camstreem. It was automatically detected by Fedora and took no "tweaking" of my own. The problem I'm having is I don't know how to access the audio. When I go to the pulse audio applet or volume contol (mixer) I can see my quick cam as in input, and I can even watch the audio meter move and respond to sounds I am making. But I don't know how to tell any applications where to get sound from... my video source is /dev/video0, what is my audio source? Since my audio level meter moves when i say things or make sounds, I assume it is there and ready, I just don't know how to access it. I figure this should be pretty simple. I'd like to be able to record video/audio, or even just use the mic separately.

Ubuntu :: Skype / Pulseaudio Mic Not Working

Oct 11, 2010

I am using 8.04, Pulseaudio, Microsoft Lifechat USB headset and Skype on a Compaq 210. Pulse works fine for everything else. One day, it just stopped working for no apparent reason (only on the Skype mic) so I uninstalled and went back to ALSA (for a few reasons) but couldn't get that working either so now back to square one. When I boot Skype, all goes well, can place a test call, no errors. But on playback of the message it's pure fuzz, basically white noise, no sign of my voice. I've twiddled with just about every volume control and toggle I can find and then some, but nothing. Another interesting thing; Pulse is now NOT working unless I input 'pulseaudio -D' in a terminal after boot. Then it seems to be okay, 'cept the mic.

Strange as the mic works perfectly and crystal clear in Sound Recorder. No probs. So:

1/ How do I replace the recorded white noise in a Skype test call with my own mellifluous tones and;

2/ Where do I put 'pulseaudio -D' (what file) so it will be read and turn pulse on at boot?

Using Skype (I know there is a newer version, .87 I think, but that was even more problematic). Another strange thing; the newer version (.87?) worked flawlessly for months before the mic just one day died (ONLY in Skype). As explained on my last thread; wife's uni/entertainment machine and me being the house computer dude, one of the reasons we use Linux is so I am not fixing Windows problems constantly. I only go near this machine when something goes pear-shaped so that is rarely. My wife doesn't tweak with her computer AT ALL.

Sound issues on this machine have been pretty much constant and I am really sick of it. I have two desktops running ALSA and Skype flawlessly with any USB headset AND they can ring incoming calls through the external speakers and you can take the call through the headset, something that is seemingly impossible for some reason in Pulse. Despite its bells and whistles, this is a serious oversight by Pulse developers in my opinion. (Unless I'm missing something and I've have searched for hours trying to fix THAT little mystery).

Debian Configuration :: Installed Kodi Now Pulseaudio Not Working

Mar 13, 2016

I recently installed Kodi on my Wheezy system. Kodi works great but now Pulseaudio is not working. I have sound but now longer have the Volume control on the desktop, and when I try to use Skype there is no sound. In Gnome Classic I selected.Applications>Sound and Video>Pulse Audio Volume Control and get this message: Connection to Pulseaudio failed. Autimatic retry in 5s.In this case it is likely because PULSE_SERVER in the Environment/X11 Root Window Properties or default-server in client.conf is misconfigured.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pulseaudio Digital Out Has Just Stopped Working

Oct 10, 2010

For no conceivable reason, pulseaudio will no longer output via the spdif connection on my onboard sound card.Up until now, various applications could output digitally (mostly using via the alsa plugin) fine. DVD playback would passthrough DD/dts bitstreams if the application was set to communicate with alsa directly. The sound profile in Ubuntu's audio applet would have to be set to Analog Stereo Output for this to work, no idea why.

Now, all the works is digital passthrough via alsa (i.e DVDs). So definitely not a hardware issue. Regular audio either via the alsa plugin or using pulse directly does not work so no music/system sounds/flash etc. All sliders are unmuted (see pics linked below) and the volume meters all show movement with sound activity. Changing the Profile setting does nothing, I thought maybe it had been fixed so digital actually meant digital.This has happened before (sometimes triggered by DVD playback and DD passthrough) but usually fiddling with the mute toggles fixed it.Possibly this has been caused by a recent update.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pulseaudio Randomly Stops Working?

Nov 10, 2010

Routinely, while I'm working on my laptop, the sound will randomly stop working and I can only get it back by rebooting. I can't seem to find any sort of pattern to what gets it to stop working, but I do have the following programs almost always running: Evolution, Chrome, Transmission, and Pidgin. I usually notice it first when Pidgin stops beeping when I receive IMs.

In the messages log I see lots of messages like this when the audio stops working:

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Flash / Foobar And Pulseaudio: Sound Not Working

Jan 25, 2011

I've been trying to use Wine to make Foobar work in Linux. The program does work, but it doesn't make a sound. For the rest, is works perfectly. I'm having the same problem with any Flash application I try to run: everything works, but without a sound. Amarok, however, doesn't have this problem.Somewhere I found that such problem might be related to Pulseaudio. So I tried going on the Pulseaudio configuration under "other" in the sound panel in YaST, but it tells me that Pulseaudio is not installed or cannot be configurated. I tried installing the package via Terminal, but it tells me that patterns-openSUSE-kde4_pure-11.3-22.1.x86_64 conflicts with pulseaudio given by pulseaudio-0.9.21-10.1.1.x86_64. I would have to delete it, if I wanted to install pulseaudio.Now I don't know where to put my hands. I am not good at this I'm not even sure I would solve my trouble installing pulseaudio, anyway. I'm using a sony vaio VPCEA3C4E with openSUSE 11.3 KDE installed trough USB key.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pulseaudio Not Working After Latest Updates On Maverick?

Dec 10, 2010

I've been running Maverick 64bit fine on my Dell M1330 laptop until a couple of days ago. After the latest updates (I guess to kernel 2.6.35-24-generic), sound stopped working properly. The sound indicator applet tells me that the sound system is not responding. The login sound doesn't play anymore.

On the other hand Rhythmbox plays and I can hear the music. I can adjust Rhythmbox volume but not the global volume (as neither the sound indicator applet nor the multimedia volume keys on my laptop work).

it works flawless. Here is what I get if I try to run pulseaudio from the terminal

$ pulseaudio

Fedora :: F12 Pulseaudio Pops On And Off?

Dec 9, 2009

I am running F12 on a lenovo X61. 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03) If my machine is quiet for a while, then suddenly needs to make a noise (eg some sort of notification event), the audio "pops" when the first sound is made. It sounds like the noise you hear in the speakers when the audio cable is connected to a live jack while the speakers are on. A static POP.

Once that initial pop is over, the audio sounds exactly like I expect it to.Then, if there is no sound for a period of about 10 seconds, I can hear the audio pop again. If I then play a sound, I will hear the initial static pop again.It's as if pulseaudio is powering up my audio system when it needs it, then powers it down when it doesn't need it any more.And, in fact, I found that something is going in in the kernel. If I look at lsmod, I can see things changing.I did an lsmod with the sound "on", then waited for it to pop off, then did it again and noticed these diffs:

< snd_hda_intel 25080 3
> snd_hda_intel 25080 2


Now I also have F12 running on a desktop machine that uses an nVidia chipset. I have no audio pops on that system. I noticed that there are similar changes in lsmod on that system, though.

Fedora :: Screening Line In With PulseAudio On F11?

Oct 17, 2009

I have my stereo plugged into the line in on my computer. When I wanted to listen to something on it (like, say, FM radio), I could just go into the mixer, unmute the line in on the playback, and I could listen to whatever was streaming in over my computer speakers.

Now, the helpful ALSA mixer has been replaced by a PulseAudio mixer that has a REALLY helpful single "master" channel....and that's it. Does anyone have any idea how to allow the line in to simply play back through master using PulseAudio? I shouldn't need to use an additional app for this, ALSA used to just play it back happily before... Even the alsamixer on the command line now has been captured by PulseAudio, so it just shows "master" for playback.

Fedora :: How Does GNOME Start PulseAudio

Nov 23, 2009

The upgrade from 11->12 went very smoothly for me on multiple servers except for one seemingly small item that had me tearing my hair out for a few hours. Three of my machines are MythTV frontends, which rarely do anything else. As such, I have them fairly stripped down package-wise and run MythTV on GNOME with xorg-x11-xinit-session to kick it off via an .xsession script. This scheme has worked flawlessly for years across many versions of Fedora until last week when MythTV mysteriously would not start and the computer would just get stuck in an automatic login loop. I discovered that I could start MythTV after I logged into the GNOME desktop and through some testing and log inspection came to realize that it was PulseAudio that was not starting automatically. I also discovered that I could just SSH in while it was in this loop and issue 'pulseaudio -D' and the next automatic login attempt would start MythTV properly.

As a quick hack, I just tossed 'pulseaudio -D;sleep 3' into my .xsession script and it seems to be working for now. I am interested to know how it used to start up without logging into the desktop before the upgrade. Could this possibly be related to udev or dbus? I have practically no knowledge of those, but do see config files for both in the pulseaudio package.

Fedora :: Pulseaudio Not Staying On Task?

Dec 5, 2009

I'm getting increasingly aggravated with tis so I figured I would ask and see if there are any insights on this.

I'm currently running F12 on a Dell XPS m1330 laptop. Everything is going great with the exception of pulseaudio. Rather than using the internal mic and speakers I'm using external (usb) Bose companion speakers and and external mic that is integrated into my Microsoft Lifecam Cinema webcam.

Now, when these work, they're spot on. No issues at all. HOWEVER, pulseaudio frequently disregards them and tries to use something else (the internals) or just stops using them. Nothing crashes, nothings broken, they just get "deselected". This happens when I back out of a game or program, log out and login, etc. I then have to jump through a series of hoops to get it configured back for the "correct" setup.

Fedora :: PulseAudio Preferences Grayed Out In F12?

Jan 24, 2010

When I start PulseAudio Preferences (paprefs) in Fedora 12, all checkboxes for Network Access, Network Server and Multicast/RTP are grayed out. The feature I'm trying to enable is DLNA. Figuring maybe I'm missing some package needed to enable DLNA-support, I click the Install... button next to the checkboxes for this feature. Installation fails as I already have the rygel package installed, which provides the needed files. I have tried first uninstalling the rygel package and then reinstalling this from PulseAudio Preferences, but still no luck. what needs to be done to enable the grayed out checkboxes for DLNA-support in PulseAudio?

Fedora :: Using The Pulseaudio Device In Mythtv?

May 31, 2010

I have a fedora13 version that upgraded mythtv to 0.23. Since that time, I've had sound problems. Mostly the sound has stopped working completely, but works with all other applications. Every once in a while the sound will work.

My sound device is ALSA:default and I have experimentally allow pulseaudio in my environment. This worked fine before the mythtv upgrade. I tried using the pulseaudio device in mythtv, but it works really poorly (lots of loud static).

Fedora :: How To Make Java Use Pulseaudio

Fedora :: No Sound In JuK Or VLC After Removing Pulseaudio

Aug 21, 2011

I just removed Pulseaudio from both Fedora and Kubuntu due to the way it stalls other programs from launching after logging into KDE. After rebooting Kubuntu, KDE sounds, JuK and VLC all had sound, presumably via ALSA.

However, Fedora has KDE sounds but no sound in JuK or VLC. When I launch JuK, KDE reports that the HDA Intel analogue device does not work. Could this relate to Gstreamer? If Fedora falls back to ALSA if Pulseaudio is removed, does Gstreamer require additional plugins? Kubuntu has "gstreamer0.10-alsa", but Fedora doesn't seem to have an equivalent.

Fedora :: Stardict +espeack No Pulseaudio -> Hangs?

I do not know is there people who hates to use PulseAudio but I do because it causes unbearable sound latency. So I removed pulseaudio entirely and using pure alsa. Everithing seemd to work ok in KDE, other programs like Skype work too.But! espeak just hangs.StarDict just hangs. Removing espeak "cures" stardict but.... It is nice to have speaking dictionary and other text-to-voice apps, and, damn it, e-speak is compiled such way that it just does not work without PA. It's a pitty.

Fedora :: Little Nightmare And Remove Or Disable Pulseaudio?

Jan 3, 2010

I posted a topic earlier, mostly about my wireless, but the sound problem I mentioned having on Ubuntu seems to have followed me to Fedora. From the information I've gathered, it appears to be due to Pulseaudio. Basically, I'm not very adept with Linux info outside the ordinary terminal commands for yum, sudo, yast, etc and I need to be able to either completely remove pulseaudio or disable it entirely somehow. From my experience on Ubuntu, just muting or disabling sound won't fix a thing... This problem doesn't seem to exist for me on Windows (though it would take a lot more than this to make me bother with that again), so I'm guessing it isn't anything too critical to fix (like a hardware problem or whatever else).

solve this little nightmare and remove or disable pulseaudio? Between the two sounds (a sort of buzzing for no real reason and a slight popping when some sound effects happen), I'm in a pretty annoying position.

Fedora :: PulseAudio Update - Heavy CPU Usage

I have Seamonkey set to play a .wav file when mail arrives. Since the latest update to pulseaudio, whenever mail arrives part of the sound plays, then one of my processor cores goes to 100% running pulseaudio. When I kill that process, the system returns to normal. This happens every time a sound is played.

Fedora :: Pulseaudio Stops Playing Music?

Mar 6, 2010

I've been having problems with it for months, assuming some bug fix would just happen, but it hasn't, so here I am.The general symptom is that I can sit listening to music for around 20-60 minutes, using audacious/banshee/whatever, and the music will make a crackling noise and suddenly stop. Killing pulseaudio and the application remedies the problem, but obviously that's not a solution.I have a ca0106 sound card. [edit: originally had emu10k1 here -- that's a sound card I have that's unused in the same system.]

/var/log/messages usually indicates a message like this, or something similar:
Mar 6 00:22:29 localhost pulseaudio[4872]: alsa-util.c: snd_pcm_avail() returned a value that is exceptionally large: 18446744073709542688 bytes (384307168155 ms).

Fedora :: Sometimes When Bootup The System PulseAudio Does Not Work

Sometimes, in fact quite frequently, when I boot up my system, PulseAudio does not work. ('Connection Refused'). If I log out of my normal account, log in as root, log out of root, and log back in to my normal account, this seems to reset Pulse Audio and it works again. Seems like a security glitch, but I can't be sure.
