View Full Version : [kubuntu] 8.04.1: No sound in games and audio players, but in video players!!!!

July 20th, 2008, 02:41 PM
This is one of the strangest effects I ever saw:

- No audio player can play ANY sound (when selecting ARTS it plays without any sound, when selecting ALSA it hangs or complains that ALSA is in use).
Tested audio players: audacious, xmms, audacity, amarok, noatun

- no game can play sounds: tested with vegastrike, quake4, quake3arena, openarena, penumbra black plague

- EVERY video player can play sounds (also mp3s)
Tested with: Kaffeine, vlc, xine, mplayer

- kmix can control the sound device just like normal

What I did before:
- installed lastfm, lastfmsubmitd, lastmp. At first system start everything was fine, but somewhen after that nothing works any more
- installed Kernel, since my Hauppauge Nova-T doesn't work with ubuntu default kernel

Anybody got an idea ????

Nevermind.... found out that this only happens in my account... had to erase profiles for all audio players, than it worked again...

Thanks Last.FM Tools !!!!

I get sound from the web (currently playing music) but I can't get sound from Audacity. About the profile for audio players, where is it?

To be honest, I can't remember where I found whihc setting. I simply deleted everything that I didn't know an that wasn't in .kde...
