Hi. I wrote some time ago about my problems with sound in PulseAudio. I decited to remove it, and use only ALSA like I was few months ago (I think). Currently in alsamixer I have only "PulseAudio" master volume, before that I had more sliders. But... how to remove PulseAudio? Pacman says, that gnome-settings-daemon depends on pulseaudio. How can I disable it?
OK I tested the front playback and microphone ports and after more playing with alsamixer, I got them to work. No idea why the back ports fail, but anyhow now I have sound and I can speak for Skype.Thank you for your help.
I think it has to do with needing to configure your default sound card. On mine card29 is something else - I'm not sure what, but it isn't what I want for sound. card0 is the one I need for sound. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ad … sound_card may help. Maybe not, though. It looks as though I tried to use this and ended up disabling it. I never did get PulseAudio to work.
