gordintoronto, hm, I has wheeze, noise from speakers, when Skype started notifications... I was not able to properly adjust the PulseAaudio and decided to remove it. Sound of Skype notifications when it output directly through ALSA - is perfect.
And... I deleted pulseaudio from system. For it, before removing process, needed write text "autospawn=no" to ~/.pulse/client.conf.
But now I have other problem: I can't control my volume from notebook media keys. I has installed volti but it not starting with error message:
jerrrys, ok, thank you.
[alsactrl.py:__init__:41] can't open Master control for card Generic, trying to select first available mixer channel
