[SOLVED]Onbord sound card and Blue Yeti pro, loses settings after reboot

Post by Taxick » Sat Jul 28, 2018 9:17 am

Hi.

I'm running Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon 64 bit, but I have some problems with my sound.

Some info:

- I have an Onboard soundcard
- I have Blue yeti pro microphone.
- I have installed PulseAudio Volume Control

Problem

Efter I have set default sound output, all works fine, but after a reboot mint set my default soundcard to the Blue Yeti... Then i will have to right click on the sound icon, and switch it back to the onboard card

In other words, It will not let me set my onboard soundcard as default and after a reboot, its back to the blue yeti mic.

What have I try?

- Installed: PulseAudio Volume Control
- "sudo alsactl store 0"

Hope someone can help me out here...

PS. IM A NOOB!

Thanks

Kind regards

Taxick

EDIT... here are some pictures from my PulseAudio Volume Control

Hi Taxick.

This might work. On the Output Devices tab of pavucontrol, uncheck the checkmark next to the Yeti. If that doesn't work, read below.

EDIT: All the typing below, and this is probably better.

Try this instead of alsactl. In the terminal, type cat /proc/asound/cards to find your cards. Here's a look at mine:

Code: Select all

scott@scott-HP ~ $ cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [HDMI           ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI HDMI
                      HDA ATI HDMI at 0xff744000 irq 46
 1 [Loopback       ]: Loopback - Loopback
                      Loopback 1
 2 [Generic        ]: HDA-Intel - HD-Audio Generic
                      HD-Audio Generic at 0xff740000 irq 16
 3 [AKM320         ]: USB-Audio - AKM320
                      MIDIPLUS AKM320 at usb-0000:00:13.0-4, full speed
scott@scott-HP ~ $ 
In my case, the onboard sound card is #2. If I had something else always being the default after boot, I could change it by typing the following in the terminal:
sudo touch /etc/asound.conf
xed admin:///etc/asound.conf
This opens a new file /etc/asound.conf for editing. Add these two lines:

Code: Select all

defaults.pcm.card 2
defaults.ctl.card 2
You need to use the card number for your sound card that you hopefully found with "cat /proc/asound/cards" where I used the number 2. Save the file and reboot (log out/in may be enough.)

Hi MrEen :)

Thanks for trying to help me! I'm sorry, but im sorry it doesn't work as expected :(

I ran the command, I get this output:

Code: Select all

taxick@Taxick-Mint:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [PCH            ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel PCH
                      HDA Intel PCH at 0xdf740000 irq 152
 1 [NVidia         ]: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
                      HDA NVidia at 0xdf080000 irq 17
 2 [B20            ]: USB-Audio - BLUE USB Audio 2.0
                      BLUE BLUE USB Audio 2.0 at usb-0000:00:14.0-9, high speed
 3 [BRIO           ]: USB-Audio - Logitech BRIO
                      Logitech BRIO at usb-0000:00:14.0-10, high speed

Code: Select all

And then open the xed admin:///etc/asound.conf file and put this in

defaults.pcm.card 0
defaults.ctl.card 0
After a reboot, my pc still selected my blue yeti as default.
Sound_001.png
(I have not moved to the selected one)

When I booted mint, the welcome sound comes from the right speaker, but all my programs still use USB-Audio - BLUE USB Audio 2.0 as default.

If I go to the "sound" and then select (See picture above) "Line Out - Built-in Audio" it all works fine, but I have to do it manually any time my pc boot.

Any ideas???

And big thanks for trying to help me out here.

If you give me the output of pacmd list-sinks I can give you the exact instructions now if you want.

Then i edit this file: sudo nano /etc/pulse/default.pa

and change these to:

Code: Select all

### Make some devices default
set-default-sink output 1
set-default-source input 1
But i dont seams to work :( Maybe im doing it wrong??

Comment out those lines again (put a # in front of them) then save and reboot. Change your sound settings to how you like, then run pacmd list-sinks and paste the output back here. We should have you fixed in just a few more minutes.

Can it be PulseAudio Volume Control that rainbows it up?

EDIT... Forgot to select the drive I want to use... Now I have done, but output is the same?!?

Sorry, I also need the output of pacmd list-cards

Did you try removing the checkmark next to the Yeti on the Output Devices tab?

I enjoy helping. It's also my way of paying back to the community. Thanks for the thanks. :D

Did you try removing the checkmark next to the Yeti on the Output Devices tab?
Did you mean in the "PulseAudio Volume Control"

Like here:

If yes, i have done it now :)

Re: Onbord sound card and Blue Yeti pro, loses settings after reboot

Post by MrEen » Sat Jul 28, 2018 1:48 pm

Before I forget, you should probably delete /etc/asound.conf unless it wasn't empty when you made that first change, in which case, delete the changes you made.

Now, let's make the last section of default.pa look like this:

Code: Select all

### Make some devices default
set-card-profile 0  output:analog-surround-51
set-default-sink 0
#set-default-source input

The checkmark removal might fix the issue, but I'm pretty certain the change to default.pa will accomplish what you want. Reboot and test.

Hi.

I deleted the file: /etc/asound.conf

But now there is no sound icon right bottom corner, and there is no sound at all

EDIT: Some pictures of "sound"

Weird. Try apt install --reinstall indicator-sound indicator-sound-gtk2

I think the first pic is showing sound is muted.
