Some years ago i hated pulseaudio but now things have changed. Pulseaudio 1.1 (now in testing) works very well, in my machine at least. I let pulseaudio to take full control of my sound card installing pulseaudio-alsa, I uninstalled kmix and installed veromix plasmoid and my experience is very positive.
Hi,On starting KDE KMix would start either Phonon or Pulseaudio style, unpredictably. A race condition, probably. There's nothing new about it: old kmix/pulseaudio thread. Unfortunately, the remedies suggested won't work for me. Any new ideas?
I've had the same problem for almost one year. The problem is that kmix starts before pulseaudio does, so kmix only have access to primary volume control.KDE4 startup applications are stored in /usr/share/autostart, /etc/xdg/autostart and ~/.kde4/Autostart. The first directory contains the system programs that must be loaded, and the second and third directories contains user applications.
I solved the problem. Pulseaudio didn't start due to permission problems: ~\pulse-cookie and ~\.pulse were owned by root. After fixing this permission issue and rebooting the system, pulseaudio started correctly and veromix works fine.
I finally solved my problem alone so I come to give the solution if someone have the problem one of the next days...By default, Chakra now installs veromix.I uninstalled it at the beginning because I use Kmix.The problem is, KDE doesn't reaffect the shortcuts with the keyboard volume buttons to Kmix but to no one!So go in KDE system settings, shortcuts and reaffects the 3 volume controls to t
Hi, I started using amarok again, and a strange issue with pulseaudio comes up : when I modify the master volume (either through kmix, or veromix), Amarok's volume is increased/decreased by the same amount. It does however stay relative : If master is at 100%, Amarok at 75%, and I drop master to 0, then back to 100%, Amarok stays at 75%.
Hi, I recently installed PulseAudio to solve a problem with sound over HDMI and it served well for that purpose. I like PullseAudio and KDE works seamlessly with it. There is only one thing that bothers me: adjusting headphones volume. There's no such control in kmix, only volume for analog output and for HDMI.
