Re: How to switch audio devices in Lubuntu?
You may want to permanently disable one of them (the "bad one", most likely the integrated sound chip in your motherboard) and always use the "good one", as the only one the system sees.
It can be done by blacklisting the module ("driver") of that "bad" card so that it's not loaded into the kernel.
For example, I have a "good" RME Hammerfall pci card, and the typical low-end intel sound chipset. I edited /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf to add this line at the end:
Of course "permanently" means as long as you don't edit back this file.
