    Re: Sound troubleshooting

    The first thing you'll have to do is get rid of PulseAudio:

    Code:

    sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-alsa gnome-alsamixer
    sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio vlc-plugin-pulse

    Then you'll need to put the following configuration file into your user home directory. Save it as ".asoundrc":
    Code:

    pcm.!default {
    type plug
    slave.pcm {
    type asym
    playback.pcm {
    type route
    slave.pcm "dmix:0"
    ttable.0.0 0.66
    ttable.0.1 0.33
    ttable.1.0 0.33
    ttable.1.1 0.66
    }
    capture.pcm "hw:0"
    }
    }

    Log out and log in again, then open a terminal window and run the following test:

    Code:

    speaker-test -t wav -c 2

    ttable.1.0 0.33
    ttable.1.1 0.66
    }
    capture.pcm "hw:0"
    }
    }

    Log out and log in again, then open a terminal window and run the following test:

    Code:

    speaker-test -t wav -c 2

    This will play back two sound clips ("front left" and "front right"). You should be able to hear both clips on either channel, with one being slightly louder than the other.

    @ takka

    nope didn't work

    I am thinking that maybe if i switch to Ubuntu 12.04, or even Debian 6 (squeeze) it may potentially solve my problems.
    any thoughts on this, or am i just potentially perpetuating the problem?

    thanks

    ".asoundrc": are you saving to root with gedit exactly how its written here with symbols?

    @takka360: advising people to remove pulseaudio is probably a bad idea in general (though it may work in some cases).

    Re: Sound troubleshooting

    I have a suggestion if it hasn't been implemented in the new release of Ubuntu; get rid of pulseaudio altogether, it's inferior to Alsa and that Alsa should be the default system for Ubuntu. I'm sick of purging pulseaudio and it's elements every time I have to install a new version of Ubuntu and I'm sure that the majority of Linux users are too.

    Use Lubuntu or find another distro, because Ubuntu devs aren't dropping pulseaudio.

    So Libuntu doesn't put even a little trace of pulseaudio? I guess I could try that. anything to get rid of that crappy pulseaudio.
