I'm running the newest LMDE version with Cinnamon and I absolutely love it.
But there's a problem that I'm not able to solve:
I have the following 3 sound devices:
- Internal Audio (AUX)
- Internal HDMI Out
- USB Headset
With the sound-icon in the system-tray I can switch between them very easy and everything works fine.
But when I launch a steam game, it always outputs sound on the Internal Audio device, even when the rest of the system uses de USB Headset for audio output.
I've googled a bit how to solve it and there was a suggestion to create a ".asoundrc" file in my home-directory and fill it with the following:
"Headset" is the name of my USB Headset device, which i got from the command aplay -L.
After creating the file, and rebooting the computer, all steam games now used the Headset as output device, BUT when I select the Headset from the system-tray as system output device, it cannot play sound anymore. When I try to watch videos on youtube, they won't play, because it can't play the sound.
Can I make it work both?
