Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get USB Headset To Auto Select In Skype?

Feb 20, 2010

I can get my Plantronics USB headset to work with Skype. So far so good.

However if I plug the headset in to use with skype, I have to go to sound preferences to get the usb headset to be the selected audio device. It is automatically detected but is not selected.

Is there a way to have ubuntu netbook remix automatically select the usb headset as soon as it is detected after being plugged in?

Win7 behaves this way and my wife is used to it. Visiting the sound preferences every time the headset is plugged in won't do. Answering a call in Skype requires that the headset be selected straight away. Leaving it plugged in all the time isn't convenient either.

ASUS EeePC 900
Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10, recently updated.

Don't want to have to resort to installing Win7 again.

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth And Skype \ Make A Call Using These Headphones With Skype, Can Speak For Say 10 Seconds And Then The Headset Disconnects Completely From The System?

Aug 12, 2010

I recently bought a IOgear USB bluetooth adapter and a Sony DRBT101/BLK bluetooth headphones to use with my computer.Whenever I try to make a call using these headphones with skype, I can speak for say 10 seconds and then the headset disconnects completely from the system. I then have to reconnect the headset by switching it off and on. I do not have this problem listening to music using A2DP. It works fine with my mobile phone.When I change the profile to Telephony Duplex (HSP/HFP), it shows up as hands free, I thought it should be headset in blueman manager. My friend uses Plantronics headset with is Dell laptop with built in bluetooth and he says his comes up as headset not hands free. Could this be causing the problem?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype - Select A Particular Sound Device?

Oct 1, 2010

i know skype on Linux is crap but i have no choice as i now have only Ubuntu installed on this pc & I NEED SKYPE.so with the new version how do i select a particular sound device.i ask because skype only lets me select a specific sound 'platform' (pulseaudio).i have a motherboard with on-board sound & a USB voip phone (us robotics) and it the usb voip phone i want to use solely for skype

so is there something i can tell pulse audio that i want skype to ONLY use the usb phone or do i have to use the stupid sound preferences to change the system wide device to the usb phone which makes the whole thing a hindrance because i have no idea when someone calls me & when i have to quickly change the settings then turn off music then try to answer the call the person calling has gone!!!i like to have music playing in the background out of my hifi & the error noises come out of the usb phone as well when this is selected & to be honest it makes having a pc setup with multiple devices pointless and a hindrance

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Auto-select USB Mic As Input Device?

Jul 6, 2010

I use a USB webcam with a built in microphone. It works fine, but every time I plug it in I have to go to sound properties and select it as the input device. There are no other input devices present on my system. Since it's the only one there, is there any way to get it to automatically select when I plug it in? If not, I think that would be good functionality to add. Does anyone know who or what team to contact about that?

General :: Skype Auto Closing - Froze / Crash?

May 26, 2011

Any time i try to open skype it closes out fully in 5 seconds (not even in the processes anymore). I don't know why or how OR how to make it stop being so mean to me! i'm running ubuntu 10.4 32bit . I tried to boot it in safe mode and umm.. it froze? or crashed? well it was on the black screen with the blinking dot for like 20 mins before i gave up on it (Hiting enter or esc or anything didn't work). There was a key symbol on my panel before skype acted up(It closed and disabled something.. i've never seen it before). Adobe also crashed, and linux did a small update (nothing with skype).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Headset Is Not Being Detected

Mar 4, 2010

I gotta say that Ubuntu 9.10 is a fantastic OS. I've been dual booting for about 4 years with Ubuntu and I want to scream to the world that Linux is finally a better OS than Mac or Windows. Having said that, I have an issue that I can't get around...

For some reason my USB headset is not being detected. I'm using the 32 bit version of Ubuntu 9.10 on a run-of-the-mill Intel-based desktop rig that I built myself. One of the mass-market programs that I still use is Skype so I can voice chat with friends and family - however, since the upgrade to 9.10 I can't get the mic to work (Plantronics USB headset - headset speakers work fine). The reason I can't get it to work is because the headset is not detected. The audio setting is set to "Analog Stereo Output" by default which does work perfectly in every other way.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Headset Not Working?

So I'm trying to get my usb headset to work. Right now I can adjust the volume and mute using the buttons on the headset, but I can't get sound toplay through it or the microphone to work.When I go to System --> Preferences --> Sound I can see that there is a driver "USB PnP Sound Device" under the "Hardware" tab. When I go to the output tab and click on the "USB PnP Sound Device" then I just can't hear anything at all. I can adjust the volume with my headset regardless of whether I have "Internal Audio Analog Stereo" or "USB PnP Sound Device

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 - Logitech USB Headset Low Sound

May 2, 2010

I just upgraded to ubuntu 10.04 and everything is ok except my USB Logitech Headset. The problem is that volume of the device is very low and I can't hear the music or any sound like I use to heard. Even if I increase the volume up to 100%, I still hearing the sound with a very low volume. But if I use the analog output of my sound card I can hear very well. I remember that i used to have this problem in ubuntu 9.10 but I fixed with a script that I found it in this forum, but I can't find it again.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Headset Not Working After Hibernation?

Jul 12, 2010

I have a Microsoft LX-3000 USB headset that has been working fine for me on all of my Ubuntu machines... until today. I accidentally clicked on "Hibernate" instead of "Shut Down" on my Lucid laptop this morning, and something seemed a little off about the hibernation process, although I don't remember exactly what happened. Anyway, since I woke this machine up, I can't get sound out of the headset. I've plugged it into multiple USB ports and can still use the microphone and the volume controls just fine, but there's no output. (Yes, I've made sure the device is enabled for output in my sound preferences).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Bluetooth Headset As Headphones?

Mar 9, 2011

I have a Sony Ericsson HBH-PV700 bluetooth headset that came packaged with a Sony Ericsson K510i phone.I was hoping to be able to use it under Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat as a headset and POSSIBLY as a microphone...I don't think it supports a2dp, so maybe this is a waste of effort. The Bluetooth adapter I'm using is Bluetooth 2.0 compilant, as far as I know. (It may be 1.2, but there's no way it's 1.1 compilant).

I have paired it with my PC and tried finding it as output and input in the Sound Preferences...no option. There's nothing in [System > Preferences > Multimedia Systems Selector] either! I have also tried the instructions at the Ubuntu Community Help Pages for Bluetooth Headset. However, my system fails to initialise the module-alsa-sink and module-alsa-source via the pactl command .I don't even know if it is possible with this device, but I'm willing to give anything a try! P.S. I'm not comfortable with installing a ton of packages just for one thing, but if there's no other option it's fine, I guess.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Logitech G35 USB Headset Dolby Support?

Been using Windows 7 for a good while but would love to make a switch over to Ubuntu i installed via WUBI the 64bit of 10.4. The headset is detected and the mic is detected and both work fine but the Dolby 7.1 "effect" does not work at all. Now in Windows a app has to be running for the Dolby part to work. Any thought on how to get that to also work in Ubuntu?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Switch The Output From Between The Speaker And The Headset?

Oct 17, 2010

I'm still on UBUNTUO 9.04 atm - I'm getting myself a Logitech USB headset. I plugged it in, and immediately I see this in dmesg

[ 7015.732141] input: Logitech Logitech USB Headset as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.1/usb4/4-2/4-2:1.3/input/input11[ 7015.732234] generic-usb 0003:046D:0A0B.0006: input,hidraw3: USB HID v1.00 Device [Logitech Logitech USB Headset] on usb-0000:00:1a.1-2/input3 [ 7280.088017] usb 1-3: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3

Which is fantastic. Tested this on all kind of audio and I can hear them fine. So headset is working wonders. Except, everytime I want to switch the output from between the speaker and the headset, I have to go System > Preference > Sound > output tab > click on the switch. Which is fine, but the switching procedure via GUI is very arduous. Is there a way to to do this via the command line, if so I can bind it to a hotkey and therefore with one hotkey I will be able to switch between headset vs my speaker?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Headset Volume Settings In ALSA Mixer?

I have a Logitech clearchat pro usb headset and it works really well. However every time I plug it in I have to turn up its volume in alsa mixer. Also so that the right volume slider is controlled (by the volume keys) I have to change the output in pavucontrol. Does anyone know of a way that I can make this happen on its own? I guessed writing a udev rule might work (not that I have ever done one), but I don't know the commands that are equivalent to what I do.
