View Full Version : [ubuntu] How I Got Multiple Sound Output

This may apply to IBM ThinkPad T43 only.

So I followed the guide from this link: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=843012, and apparently couldn't work properly when I use Skype. So I did a minor change of that guide, which is that instead of Pulse Audio as my default sound card, I still choose ICH6, and choose Default device in Skype.

This way, my Skype could work properly while other sound card needed programs still work fine.

note: my problem using just Pulse as my Skype sound device is that it occupies all my CPU resources...

Are the directions for using skype with pulseaudio wrong in this link from my guide:


It would be good to know so I can change the guide. I don't use skype myself.

I don't know if it's wrong, it just didn't work for me, so that's what I did for it to work perfectly :D

Well, I finally broke down and installed skype and you are right, that does not work. But I found something that did and have put a whole new SKYPE section in my guide. Now skype works in Pulse Audio like everything else. If you would give it a try to confirm this, I would appreciate it.

Thanks, Mark
