alert sounds not working in cinnamon + 5.1 sounds not workin

Postby Niks on Sun Feb 17, 2013 8:39 am

I'm using the last distro of LMDE 64 Cinnamon
After install I had the alert sounds but during updates they disappeared then reappeared now it's all grayed out again.
It's not a mixer issue as I have multiple sound devices and use pavucontrol to route all my signals.
It works well accept the 5.1 output to my sound blaster card does not route the rear channels to any of the outputs.
I don't think these issue are related but could be.

I have just become in op in a chat room and need a bark drip or bong :lol:
And I would love to get "movie night" going but need surround sound.

Help please I have been fighting this one for months now and every "solution" I have found on Mint, Debian, Ubuntu just don't work!

Niks :mrgreen:

Maybe totally unconnected but was a surprise to me .. Installed Rhythmbox tried to run it and got this !

Re: alert sounds not working in cinnamon + 5.1 sounds not wo

Hi,

if you click on the small speaker-icon. (right-down in the panel)

What do you have on "Output device..."
And what in the "Sound Settings"-Menu, in every tab ?
Never give Up!

Every sound card I have and no matter which one I select as default the alert sounds always remain grey.

The system you mention I find inadequate as you can not fully route signals from software out to the hard ware of choice.
I use pavucontrol which works fine although has no effect on the issue i am posting about.

Thx for your thoughts
