Yes, this is another sound problem on Linux - I will try to be brief.
1. Installed Linux Mint Gloria 64-bit (sound works perfectly)
2. Installed Team Speak 2 from repos (sound from my microphone in team speak had very poor quality)
3. Installed alsa-oss from repos (according to a tutorial I found on a web)
4. Executed: aoss teamspeak (after that sound from my microphone had good quality in TS)
5. Closed teamspeak and completely lost sound EVERYWHERE.
I hear some static (crackling) noise instead of normal sound.
I tried to:
- reboot several times
- uninstall alsa-oss
- reinstall all alsa related packages I could find
- search the web (found few people with the same problem, but no solution)
- check my hardware (it still works on weendoze)
The only thing I could do is to completely reinstall the system. But before I do that, maybe there is a way to solve this problem. I don't even know where to look.
In Audacious I have the following preferences:
ALSA Output plugin
Audio device: Default PCM Device (Default) - this always worked, I never changed that (but now I have no sound)
In desperation I started to change my settings and discovered that I do get correct sound in Audacious if I change the Audio device to: hw:0,0
Other stuff including system login sounds are still corrupt
