USB 2.0 Headset w/ VoiP

Postby grombor on Fri Jun 27, 2008 3:18 pm

I am having difficulties getting my usb 2.0 headset working with all my multimedia apps and I cannot figure out why. I was able to get it to run in rythmbox but I cannot get it to work in anything else. It would be very nice to be able to watch DvD's Etc.... I have it plugged into the front of my computer in the second usb port. I'm assuming that it's just something that's probably easy and straightfoward, but I don't know how to set my programs to use just this one device. I have built in Intel Sound, but I don't use it since my speakers fried. I did see the resource at the top of the board, but I don't have time to check it out fully at this moment, and I'll check it out further when I get back from work. Just hoping for some suggestions in the meantime. Thanks. :)

I always thought that if you choose the right sound source USB headsets just work - obviously not, this is the third post today I believe ...
The thing to do is check every setting for sound so that it points to USB

I have had problems with a C-Media USB headset for ages, and eventually gave up on it. (I still have it though.) It had a built in soundcard that for some reason didn't seem compatible with linux (though it worked flawlessly with any windows machine, which makes sense as it came with RosettaStone- which is windows-only as far as I know). So that may or may not be true...
