    Choosing audio device under Xubuntu

    I've got a clean install of Ubuntu 11.04, with the exception of an installation of Open Office. My problem is I can't change the default audio device. I'm trying to use a USB Plantronics headset rather than the internal audio but I can't find where to change this and I can't find padevchooser and after some more research I found that this package isn't used anymore, is that right?

    My system is a Dell Latitude D820 running Xubuntu 11.04 AMD64. The internal audio is basic Intel HD audio and the headset is a Plantronics Audio 510.

    The reason for running Xubuntu over Ubuntu is because I prefer XFCE over Unity and Gnome.

    Thanks!

    I am using Xubuntu 11.10 and I just used
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pavucontrol
    and it installed ok and it comes up under Multimedia and works perfectly.

    Thank you, that is exactly what I needed. I was using padevchooser back in Xubuntu 8.04 or something so I was stuck on that (and was getting errors when trying to compile it after installing g++).

    Re: Choosing audio device under Xubuntu

    Does not work for me when I try to launch pavucontrol I get

    Code:
    pavucontrol: error while loading shared libraries: libatkmm-1.6.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    And yes the libs are installed:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libatkmm-1.6-1
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    libatkmm-1.6-1 is already the newest version.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    Anyone else getting this?

    Fresh install of 11.10 xubuntu

    Looks like a 64-bit issue. Fresh 32-bit install here and pavucontrol installed and works (don't have 64-bit install available to test).

    Out of curiosity, what do the following return:
    Code:
    ldd `which pavucontrol`
    Code:
    ls -l /usr/lib/libatkmm*

    Re: Choosing audio device under Xubuntu

    I'm not the OP, but pavucontrol did help me get sound over HDMI, thanks. Only complaint is, now the volume up/down panel widget (with the keyboard controls) doesn't work. Apparently it's tied to the system's Mixer app in some way.

    In a terminal window, run the following:
    Code:
    wget -O alsa-info.sh http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh; chmod +x ./alsa-info.sh; ./alsa-info.sh
    ...and when it asks you if you want to automatically upload your information to www.alsa-project.org, say Y. It will do so then provide you with a link to access the report. Post that link back here.

    Here is a reference link: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/So...otingProcedure. It sounds like you are trying/wanting to change the default sound device in your system. Step 17 should help.
