View Full Version : [ubuntu] playing microphone through speakers (lucid)

September 1st, 2010, 06:44 PM
I'm trying to set something up so I can hear my microphone in real time through my speakers. I've done it on Windows, but I can't find the setting in Ubuntu Lucid. Is there a way to set it up without using other software? I tried using Audacity and it worked, but not the way I wanted it to. I'm talking about setting it up from within the OS like in Windows.

Bump. Anybody know anything about this?

Try installing paprefs:

sudo apt-get install paprefs
On the 'Multicast/RTP' tab you'll want to tick the second option and in the sub-options select 'Loop back audio to local speakers'
