problems with usb headset lx-3000 livechat Microsoft

Postby estpear on Mon Oct 12, 2009 2:56 pm

I am having some problems with my headset, I have had another for some time, which I was rather happy with, but now it broke into two pieces which unfortunately makes it impossible to wear.
Could somebody help me to figure out how I can make this problem go away.

We need the USB ID to help you
Run lsusb in a terminal and post - you can do a search for the ID yourself

Sometimes a solution "falls from the sky" as soon as you have the ID - unfortunately not here
Have to do some more research

Sorry for the late response
I have been trying to find a solution, but no
I have assumed that the other headset also was USB, is that correct?

Hi,

i got the same problem.

Here is the Output lsusb:
Code: Select all
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 045e:070f Microsoft Corp.


Skype and Rhythmbox 0.12.0 working fine, but no audio-output from a movie player (used gnome-mplayer 0.9.4, Totem Video-Player 2.26.1 and vlc 0.9.9a).

I use linuxmint 7.

Hope someone can give me a solution.

greetings

I've been looking into this but still I have not managed to get my own USB headset working...
I'm not sure if this is useful any more after the introduction of pulse audio
Do
Code: Select all
grep audio /etc/group

You probably get audio:x:29:pulse
For some sound problems it may help if you are in the audio group
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/group

Add your username to the line above so it becomes like
audio:x:29:pulse:username
Be very careful not to change anything else or your computer may become unusable
You could also do
Code: Select all
cat /proc/asound/modules

You may get something like
0 snd_intel8x0
1 snd_hda_intel
2 snd_usb_audio
and you want the USB audio to be the default, then
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/modeprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

At the end add
options snd_usb_audio index=0
options snd_hda_intel index=1
options snd_intel8x0 index=2
This makes usb_audio the default (I'm investigating this more right now)

There may be a danger here that when the USB device is removed there's no module 0 anymore. I found a better solution here http://superuser.com/questions/172514/alsa-usb-audio-hotplug:
Code: Select all
options snd_hda_intel index=-2
options snd_usb_audio index=-1

This just changes the relative preference of USB, rather than forcing it. This works with Ubuntu 11.10 and KDE for me.
