    Re: HOWTO: PulseAudio Fixes & System-Wide Equalizer Support

    Okay, here goes a help request... I've had this fix going for a few weeks, but I always get a low static background noise. It doesn't get much in the way when I'm actually playing audio, but it's quite annoying when there's no sound playing.

    Also, Firefox seems to be bypassing PA. It doesn't show up in the device list, and when it plays anything with sound, it mutes all my other applications.

    I'm on Intrepid x64. This is the output of aplay -l:

    Re: HOWTO: PulseAudio Fixes & System-Wide Equalizer Support

    Today i tried to fiddle a bit around with the pulseaudio equalizer (the one described in this howto)

    ive had the original file pasted working for days now, today i changed the settings, and now its impossible for me to play music or watch movies, audacious, vlc, banshee, no sound at all, but i do get sound in quakewars (which is configured to use quakewars)

    i tried changing the settings back, no change.

    whats the matter? i dont get it...

    just when i posted it i foudn the culprit, for some reason it changed my default output to dummy... humm..

    Re: HOWTO: PulseAudio Fixes & System-Wide Equalizer Support

    thanks for your post. i found it helpful. i have followed as the above and am stuck as i have sound still but skype will not play. i also am not sure on what to specify on the sound defaults. could you help?
    thanks Vinny

    Re: HOWTO: PulseAudio Fixes & System-Wide Equalizer Support

    I've just installed an M-Audio Delta 44. I cannot connect to pulseaudio but I can get sound through this card through alsa. I need pulse audio to work as I want to start recording.

    I'm pretty sure I must have deleted/edited a pulseaudio config file by accident but I cannot work out what. Can anyone help?

    Code:
    ~$ aplay -l
    **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
    card 0: M44 [M Audio Delta 44], device 0: ICE1712 multi [ICE1712 multi]
      Subdevices: 1/1

    ~$ pkill pulseaudio; sleep 2; pulseaudio -vv
    I: main.c: PolicyKit refuses acquire-high-priority privilige.
    I: main.c: Called SUID root and real-time/high-priority scheduling was requested in the configuration. However, we lack the necessary priviliges:
    I: main.c: We are not in group 'pulse-rt' and PolicyKit refuse to grant us priviliges. Dropping SUID again.
    I: main.c: For enabling real-time scheduling please acquire the appropriate PolicyKit priviliges, or become a member of 'pulse-rt', or increase the RLIMIT_NICE/RLIMIT_RTPRIO resource limits for this user.
    I: main.c: Note that real-time/high-priority scheduling is NOT normally required. If you experience crackling or other sound anomalies, consider one or more of the above solutions.
    I: main.c: High-priority scheduling enabled in configuration but now allowed by policy. Disabling forcibly.

    Re: HOWTO: PulseAudio Fixes & System-Wide Equalizer Support

    I've got a delta 1010lt and in ardour and rosegarden as in several other apps. I use jack with alsa as backend. Is that an idea?

    Don't wanna intrude in a pulse thread but it works well for me with really low latency.

    All I know about Jack is that it's target audience are the professional folk, who need more complex mixing capacities, real-time sound and other such niceties.

    Re: HOWTO: PulseAudio Fixes & System-Wide Equalizer Support

    Well I should have listed when they said "if it aint broke don't fix it"...

    I have 8.10 up and working well will ALSA but a couple of apps wouldn't work. So, I followed the guide to install correctly configure pulse audio. Seemed to work but on rebooting my machine just hangs. I get to the grub and select the kernel to boot and nothing from there. Can even switch to a secondary console. Someone mention that having system sounds on could be a problem? I had them on. Would that cause it to hang completely? Any ideas how to fix? Really don't want to reload...

    At the moment I'm having enough trouble with pulseaudio so I'll leave jack until I'm feeling adventurous...

    Now I am really worried. I have the exact same soundcard, and I too want to start recording. Why would you need PulseAudio to work in order to record? Ubuntu worked perfectly well for recording before PulseAudio was used in Ubuntu, didn't it? I ask, because I don't really know, only having used the Delta 44 with Windows 98 on an old Pentium 4. The setup I had there worked perfectly well for recording.

    Also, I noticed in your quoting of the code messages generated, things like "PolicyKit refuses acquire-high-priority privilige." Now, my terminal messages were like this too, with the word "privilege" being spelled "privilige" all the way through. In no way is that an acceptable spelling of "privilege". Who is responsible for these messages that are generated? I'm very much a novice, but I was always led to believe that spelling and syntax are sacrosanct at the terminal - where mistakes would not be allowed at all, and would cause things not to work.

    This is just such sloppiness that it makes me uneasy about the integrity of the whole PulseAudio scenario.

    If I've caused any offence, please accept my apologies in advance - none was intended.

    Cheers,
    Kath

    I wouldn't mind trying that, Jocheem67, if I knew what to do to set that up. The exact steps to configure everything, I mean. What does "backend" mean? (Please excuse my ignorance.)
