https://bbs.archlinux.org – I have added this to ~/.asoundrc:pcm.dsp { type plug slave.pcm "dmix" }but to no avail.  I have also installed paprefs and my sound card isn't listed, only the HDMI output which I don't use.  I also tried this:Using paprefs, simply select "Add virtual output device for simultaneous output on all local sound cards" from under the "Simultaneous Output" tab. Then, under GNOME's "sound settings", select the simultaneous output you have just created. Nothing.I also tried the verbose option too with the same result.EDIT:This is t (HowTos)
