[SOLVED]KDE: changing default sound card!

Post by danielninja »

Hy guys, i'm using LM KDE, but i don't have sound in vlc or in the browser when i'm watching a youtube clip or somthin'. So where can i change the default sound card?
Thanks for the help.

so..i found the solution:

1- In terminal type:
cat /proc/asound/modules
..this will show the soundcards and the occupy slot and their names.. (my output is)
0 snd_emu10k1
1 snd_hda_intel
2 snd_hda_intel
2- You have to see the names of the cards you do not want to use and in terminal type:
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
3- then find the place where it says " # Prevent abnormal drivers from grabbing index 0.." and in the list below add:
options snd_nameofthecardudontwanttouse index=-2
(if you don't want to use more than one card you have to add a line for each card.)
4- save the file and in terminal type:
sudo reboot
( now it'll set the "wrong" sound cards to slot -2 (which make then to be disabled) and the correct soundcard should now grab slot 0 and work.)

Had (occasionally have) the same problem, although I have two soundcards in my system. To access the sound settings 'click' on the volume icon, then 'click' on 'Mixer' and that should open you soundcard(s).
