View Full Version : [ubuntu] USB headset for Skype, Speakers for other... HELP!

August 18th, 2011, 09:34 PM
I'm trying to set up my system so that When a call is made in Skype, you hear the person talking in the headset, but if I then go and play an MP3, it will play over the speakers.

When I go to set this up, my only option is "Pulse Audio Server (local)" and when I open the Pulse server it allows me to select _1_ output device (i.e. EITHER speakers OR headset) and it wont let me choose to use one for skype and one for everything else.

Am I missing a tick-box somewhere or...? :confused:

Try installing the PulseAudio Volume Control utility (using the software centre, of course).
