Ubuntu Multimedia :: Find The /dev Path For Built-in Mic?
Dec 27, 2010
I am using VLC to capture video from my webcam. So to set the video device I use /dev/video0 (built in webcam), but I need to specify the path to the built in mic and I can't find what that path is. If it help any, it seem my system is configured to use pulse audio instead of alsa. Is there any script to run to find where my mic is "pathed" at? arecord -l returns this:
$ arecord -l

I've just built gcc 4.6.0 by myself since there is no update in Mandriva yet and I really needed the updated version, but I must be missing something in its configuration. I added ~/apps/gcc460/bin in front of my PATH, and the lib dir to my LD_LIBRARY_PATH in my .bash_profile, like so:
I still have gcc 4.4.2 installed, but it's now hidden, so gcc --version correctly yields 4.6.0. I finally tried to build my project, all went fine, but at the moment of running it I get: Code: ./EugGame.Release.Linux: /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by ./EugGame.Release.Linux)
I assume the correct version is the one located in ~/apps/gcc460/lib, but how do I make my project load the correct lib? Is it possible at all to have two versions of gcc on the same machine? I just found that I should've added lib64 to my LD_LIBRARY_PATH instead of lib. Anyways, even if the problem is solved, I'd like to hear if my configuration is well made or if I should leave LD_LIBRARY_PATH unset and use some other way to override the default search path for stdlib.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 And for some odd reason I can't use my webcam, whem I try to use my webcam all the programs I tried say the same "webcam/device not found". I don't know what's happening but a while ago I had to reinstall ubuntu 10.10, but the version I had installed before could use my webcam.
I've followed the guide at URL.... but my computer is unable to find any Bluetooth devices. Whether I'm using the command line or gnome-bluetooth, I don't get any results. If I plug in a cheap USB adapter, I'm able to connect and use the devices.My computer is a HP ProBook 4330s running Debian Jessie. And as far as I can tell the Bluetooth adapter is a Ralink rt3592 combination Wi-Fi and Bluetooth PCI card. The Wi-Fi works fine, but when i try to connect to a Bluetooth device, I get no search results.
I am trying to install Staden on a Ubuntu 10.04 machine (64bit). It requires a number of dependencies to be installed prior to configuring the source. I was fortunate to find all of them using the synaptic package manager. now for the configure command I need to specify where these dependencies are as options.
how do I find the programs that I need to reference as options to the configure command such as: tcl, tk, zlib, xz utils, libpng, curl, tklib, itcl, itk, etc. Is there a standard directory that synaptic uses or what?
I mean I have a folder on my root /share and I want to find out how much free space do I have left on the hdd, problem is I have 4 HDD and I don't know if /share is mounted on / or where ..... what is the command line?
I have ubuntu 8.10. In this I could find the binutils, gcc are installed. But when ever I try to know that glibc, glibc-linuxthreads are installed are not. It showing that no package is found. For that I have downloaded glibc-2.3.3.tar.gz, glibc-linuxthreads-2.3.3.tar.gz.I want to install these two package.i dont know where to install as am novice to linux.
But a) there exists more than one installation of "foobar" on the system or b) I don't know where "foobar" is installed.
How can I find out WHICH foobar resp. WHICH path belongs to the currently active foobar tool?
I prefer a cmdline command with option similar to:
findactivepath -tool=foobar .... Output: Used location=/usr/bin/foobar
I don't want to dig around with PATH investigations by searching every PATH component. Furthermore I don't want to get recommendations and expectations like "normally tools are installed in...". Think of unusual installed software.
I have this weird problem. The other day I asked a question about restore the backup file after dual boot installation. I have done the dual boot ( XP installed first) then restored the backup file. Now the problem is that I forgot if I excluded system files from backup or not, so when I restored and rebooted, my installations got messed up, many programs do not find their path to run, etc. But the real problem is when I rebooted again, I got error 15: file not found tried to follow some other posts here to solve this and noticed that running fdisk -l gives me:
I installed a new program called the "Android Notifier Desktop 0.2.1" and within the program it say to use the systems startup manager to start the program with every system boot.I have no idea where to begin looking for the programs file and main start up link.
I am running Debian Squeeze, 64-bit.I would like to try my hand at bash scripting. So at the author's suggestion (first chapter of Chris F. A. Johnson, Pro Bash Scripting from apress) I created a /bin directory in my home directory. So now I would like to modify my PATH statement so that when I run a script from my bin directory my shell will find it.I did that. He then says that I should add this to ".bash_profile, .bashrc, or .profile depending on how bash is invoked." The find command is unable to locate any of these files. So I searched the forum, found the link above and tried to follow that. No luck so I assume that how Debian handles PATH statements has changed since that post?
I also have checked the wiki and worked Google as hard as I know how to do.Very simply where the heck is my PATH statement and how do I modify it?
I installed Skype onto my Toshiba Satellite running Karmic last December, and gave it a very successful test run. However, while video still works, and I can receive audio, the microphone does not pick up any sound. I don't think it could be a hardware issue- it worked so recently and my machine has experienced no tramatic events since, but I can't pick up any sound using Sound Recorder either. How could I go about diagnosing and fixing this problem?
So Im having problems getting sound to work on my new machine. I dont know if its a hardware problem or if its something else. Im kinda a linux amateur but have been using it for a couple years off and on. Im running
Ubuntu 10.10 Biostar N68s+ mother board AMD athlon 64 x2 dual core processor my video card is a MSI N8400GS.
Im using a DVI to HDMI cord and running it into my flat screen TV for my monitor. I normally just used a analog splitter from the back of the pc to the tv for my sound to work. Never had a problem before I had this machine put together.
a new hardisk and a reinstall later I find myself face with 2 problems now. firstly I followed, [URL]... which seemed to work fine, accross the network I can "see" all the workgroup computers. Now try login to karmic's or (other linux box) jaunty, can't find network path. tried turning off the firewalls, still no go. the two linux boxes can chat merrily, and the 2 windows boxes can chat, but to each other. however after fidling a bit , on karmic i now get
Quote: Could not display "network:///" Nautilus cannot handle "network" locations
so firstly how do i reinstall everything, the how deal with windows.
I also posted this as a question in launchpad, but wasn't sure if this might be a better place. Pretty new to Ubuntu, if you couldn't tell.I just upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 and cheese/skype don't see the webcam built into my machine. It worked with Windows 7 that came with the computer, and in 9.04. I'm using a Asus 1005PE.

i've not been able to find a solution to my issue. I have a Gateway Profile 5 All-in-One with built in speakers. Just finished a fresh install to 9.10 and all updates. I can hear sound through the headphone jack via headphones, but the internal speakers will not play anything. I've checked the volume controls, alsamixer, etc.
