View Full Version : [ubuntu] Karmic New Panning Sounds Need Explanation??

November 1st, 2009, 09:24 AM
Thankfully Jaunty upgraded to Karmic with no issues and most of the older apps still work with Karmic on my computer. I was a bit surprised though to hear the sound effects playing only from the left speaker! It turns out, depending on where the action takes place on the screen affects the panning of that sound.

Clicking my "start button" on the left side sent the sound 100% to the left speaker. Clicking a button the right side sends the sound 100% to the right speaker. Where as if it's in the center, the sound balances out.

I've been poking around in the settings and cannot find this "feature" to turn it off. I don't mind it. It's actually kind of cool. (Makes me wonder if Win7 has it.) But, I'd rather turn it off and I can't find the switch for it!
