View Full Version : [all variants] Sound from X11 applications not in TTY

January 22nd, 2009, 11:51 PM

Using Ubuntu 8.10, but this has been an issue as long as I can remember:
When I'm playing music in Gnome (Not sure if this is the case in KDE) and change to a TTY my music system goes silent. When I go back to TTY with Gnome session sound comes back on.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was a very simple setting in alsa or something of that sort, but I just don't know where to start.

Does anyone have any ideas how to get this sorted?

Thanks in advance!
